busy busy busy! I've been working on stuff for baby Jacobs baby shower which is next sunday. Its sort of hard knowing what to buy for him. As we just dont know what will be happening after he is born. I was at babys r us looking at stuff yesterday and got totally overwhelmed so I called my son and asked him what he thought. He told me they have nothing for the baby yet and to please act like there is nothing wrong and buy all sizes and that they need everything. He said that the dr told them that the baby could be in the hospital for a month, 6 months or more. omg.
so I bought crib sheets and recieving blankets, a bunch of outfits in different sizes and stuff to make a diaper cake. Im having a cat in the hat quilt made and I ordered giant dr. seuss vinyl wall art. I made a bunting that vanessa wanted and I'm working on a teddy bear.
I guess Im going to wait and see what else they need after the shower and get them something more substantial then. There will be lots of time to buy the baby the things he needs.
we are going to be painting his bedroom wall with a dr. seuss mural, which is why I ordered the vinyl charactors. I thought it would be easier to paint the background on and then stick the charactors up there. I still need to make a mobile for him, but I dont think I'll get that done before the shower... who knows though.
Today Vanessas mom and aunt are coming over and we're going to make the shower favors. cat in the hat treat cups with choc covered pretzels. do think those will be ok? We need to decide what to do about the cake. the person that they wanted to make it cant now. And our local bake shops dont have any dr. seuss cakes.. so I'm thinking were going to have to make one....... I dont know what to do with it. I've looked for dr. suess charactors that can go on the cake but no luck anywhere. Ive looked at cakes on line... and I dont think I could pull off any of them... soo.. who knows what we will do.. I guess we'll have to decide to day though!
I just want this shower to be special and I want Vanessa and Tony to feel loved and supported and to have everything they need. I wish I had money. Id love to be able to buy them a nice big comfy rocking chair. I might be able to find a cheap one somewhere though.
Ok girls.. I know I keep saying it, but please keep praying for baby jacob. I just want hims to be healthy and strong and everything to be good for them all.. the more things I look up on line about his condition the more worried I feel. But I'm trying to be positive about for them. Its all in gods hands. ( I do my worrying away from them!)
OK.. so Now.. I have to clean my house and go to the store before vanessas mom and aunt come over.
have a great sunday!
