glittering elephants. He's having a girl, so my family started a name draft to guess the name. (Think "NFL draft," but on a tiny scale and with baby names rather than teams. Yes... this idea was invented by a man who loves sports.) Adrain spent an entire weekend getting movie tickets for the prize, making draft worksheets for us, and got a great big white board pad with tear off sheets so we could organize our picks. He put a ton of time and thought into it to make it fun. It ended up just being the four of us participating, but Adrain and I agreed if either of us win, we are giving Officer McJakey and Holli a night out at the movies (while we babysit the mini-hoodlum for them!) If my kids win, Jake and Holli are just out of luck.
baby room decorating process. We have scoured pinterest and gazillions of sites, pulling all the little details together. Her colors are gray and white with pops of Tiffany blue/turquoise/aqua and pink of course! I have been working on her baby gift quite a bit this past month to have it ready for her baby shower. I'll be putting quite a few of the items I show here into my shop later this month too! I drew inspiration from all over the place, and nothing is very original to me but everything is incredibly cute!

give it in my gift. (I made her one too, but she loves them all.)
pattern here at bitofwhimsydolls.com. I didn't embroider a face on the doll because I saw them faceless here and fell in love! I'll have four dolls in my shop, and they won't have faces... cause yeah... I can't embroider.
gray, french ribbon for years for something special... and I ended up using it for her little pigtails. I knew Holli would love the gray and white checked skirt, and decided to make the shirt from a soft flannel in a sweet vintage rose print. I couldn't resist.
burp cloths and bibs because you can't have a baby without these!
bibs for years! (There will only be a couple in my shop.)
And now, I'm off to a baby shower. I just had to share these with you before I left!
