Baby Shower and an Unexpected Birth

Our baby shower was last weekend and it was fantastic! We got some really adorable things. Including our pack and play which will be super helpful!!


It’s even got cute little owls on it! 🙂

Our cake turned out fantastic too!


The little cupcakes were spice cake and chocolate for the big cake.

We had a lovely time and I’m very happy with the turn out.

Now, on to the unexpected birth! No, it’s not Ruby! My sister in law had her baby boy on Tuesday night at 1138 pm via cesarean. He was footling breach and so a csection was performed. She was 36+6. His lungs are fine, his heart is great. He was screaming the moment he was born. Mama is also doing good.


Clayton David was born weighing 6lbs 8oz and 19 inches long. A tiny little fella! It’s a darn good thing we have a baby on the way because he has given me such baby fever! I shall spam you with cute baby boy photos now!


She’s nursing mostly but also supplementing with formula. His latch is getting better though and my sil is doing great!


First selfie with Auntie!


Ruby was kicking away at Clayton while Jess held him. It was funny. :p


Finally home. This is a stuffed lion for comparison. He’s a tiny little squish and we love him so ❤

Letters to Ruby #3

Dear Ruby,
Your baby shower is on Sunday! Mama and I have been furiously prepping for this weekend all week and we still have stuff left to do!


I’m almost done the Its a girl banner (tying it together with twine) and tomorrow afternoon we are doing most of the food preparation at grandma and grandpa’s house.

You’ve been very active, as you have been all pregnancy, and mama is starting to feel your strong kicks and jabs under her ribs. Be kind to your mama little ladybug


Lots of belly lovins for you from your Abba. I’m so in love with you my little pumpkin All my love always,

Your Adoring Abba

33 weeks and a Changing Table

Our changing table arrived yesterday. Made especially for us by our good friend Chris. We are so in love with this changing table! When you look at the pictures you will see why too! He did an absolutely spectacular job! It’s going to be a wonderful piece of furniture we will have for a long long time. ❤


The top is awesome for cloth diapers and the adjustable shelves are going to be amazing for diaper and wipe storage. The left side will house our diaper pail and deodorant disk. We worked on stuffing diapers today for our beautiful new changing table too!


Our daughter will have a very stylish bum I tell you what!

The Mrs is doing fairly well. Tired of course but she’s looking gorgeous as ever:


Of course I’ve been loving on the baby belly as well. My little ladybird ❤


Our baby shower is next Sunday so we are finishing the prep for that. Tata for now!

32 weeks

Holy crap! 32 weeks! We are in preparation mode for our shower on the 14th. I’m so excited for that! We finally decided upon a menu and a couple of fun activities. The Mrs isn’t big on the games thing so we are instead doing a baby pool. Written guesses by guests on when they think Ruby will be born, how much she will weigh etc.

Something else we are doing that I’m pretty excited about are Dear Baby prompts. It has things like “I hope you learn”, “I hope you aren’t afraid of” and it’s signed by the person at the bottom with Love, (their name).

Present opening is of course the super fun part! We are going to do a raffle for a cute prize (not sure what just yet) and hopefully we will be able to do some sugar scrub for guests to take home.

All in all I think it will be a really great time and I’m very excited to get together and celebrate with our family and friends.
