this first picture is for theCrazyJoy challenge.

this weekend we had a baby shower for a friend of mine. it was a secret weather the baby was a boy or a girl. she found out last weekend at a shower with her family and she kept a secret from the rest of us for the last week. we had a pink and blue themed shower this weekend and her cake revealed boy or girl? take a look at some of the set up for the shower.

linds hadn't really been craving much but she had been eating a lot of cereal. we had four different types of cheerios and some granola cereal. people could eat it with milk or yogurt or plain.
jules made these cute baby passi's

half of the table was pink and half was blue. i wish i would have gotten a picture from the blue side. we even had pink and blue punch.

linds made her own cake so that she could hide the color of the frosting in the inside. she also made these cupcakes.

so here you go. baby j.crew is a boy. we are so very excited.

this was a big part of my weekend and i chose the first and the last pictures as my CrazyJoy:Mysterious post because it was a mystery to all of us if the baby was going to be a boy or a girl and there is something about pregnancy that is mysterious as well. it's amazing that these little human lives can grow and form and live inside of us for 9 months. it's a mystery as to what this little one will look like. a mystery as to their personality. pregnancy is a mysterious, wondrous thing.

this weeks photo challenge with CrazyJoy is Comparison. I wish i would have been creative enough to get one of me standing at 9 months and then of me holding baby girl up against my belly at nine months but it didn't happen. this is what i have and i think captures comparison pretty well. for me i much rather have my girl in my arms instead of in my tummy. me and pregnancy did not get along.

Room Update

i made a couple of these paper pompoms for baby girl's birthday party and they just to happen to go great in her room as well.

so getting a little room inspiration from AshleyAnn, i decided to hang some paper pompoms in my little girls room as well. we love them. they go perfect with her room.

the first picture is just to show you her attempts to get into the pantry. our pantry door doesn't latch when it closes. now i need to go and get a new door knob that will latch because she can still get it open even when it is all the way closed. those little fingers can get in the cracks around the door and pry it open. she's going to be mad when we get the new door knob and she realizes she can't get in there. so i wish that my pantry was neater but for the challenge purpose here is my girl getting caught in the pantry.

for-bid-den: not permitted or allowed.

the pantry along with the bathroom are two places that she is forbidden. she loves those places too. funny how that happens.

12 months or 1 year

whatever your prefer

totally late on posting this but glad that i got it up here. this picture was by far the hardest of all of them to take because i couldn't get her to hold still. i think i will continue to take pics of her every month but maybe i will attempt a chair for the next years set.

paper...she is fascinated with paper. it's like she can sniff it out. even when i think that we have picked it all up she manages to find it. so at her birthday party, grabbing the gifts that were wrapped were awesome to her.
