New Baby Coming to Town


Yesterday we celebrated my nephew's upcoming arrival with a baby-que. These tend to be coed so there is always something fun.

This is my first nephew who will join a big sister (2 1/2yrs old) and 2 big cousins (15 yrs old boy and soon to be 5 month old girl). Not only will this be my nephew but also my godchild. That makes him a special little man in my life.

We are all very excited as we wait for time to tick away and that much closer to his arrival. Unless he gives mom and dad a surprise he will be arriving on Jan 11 via schedule c-section. Until then I will make the attempt to be a tiny bit patient as our newest family keeps us on the edge awaiting his arrival.

In the meantime, I have been making diaper cakes for baby showers I attend (one shown a few months back I created for my niece's baby shower). This last has perfected my technique and inspired me to create and sell these locally. I don't want to make this a large business since I currently own 1 already and rep for another. It will just allow me the personal customer contact, customization, and the crafting I love to do. I do several baby shower gifts and favors so this will be a fun adventure to dive into.
