The gift theme for the baby shower was "My Favorite Things", which really is a great theme fora first-time mom and baby. And it was actually Emily--the mom-to-be--'s idea
bapron, so I made her one (This time baby-sized and girly.)
Boon Squirt Spoon. Emily and her husband had actually seen us using the spoon at church before and thought it was the coolest thing, so I made a mental note to get one for them when they were pregnant. The store I was at no longer sold the Boon brand, but they had this similar baby food-dispensing spoon of another brand.
The two gifts made a great pair.
I was happily impressed by the number of hand-made gifts she received at the shower. She also received a hand-made quilt, some embellished cloth diaper burp rags, and a hair clip organizer ribbon, with a handful of homemade flower barrettes.
After the shower the co-host and I were talking about this and asked: wouldn't it be cool if we could have an "all-handmade" baby shower sometime. Obviously we'd have to be a bit selective on the invite list, but wouldn't that gift-opening everyone would enjoy watching?!
