Busy Busy!

Do you know how time consuming it is to show every stranger in TN pictures of my baby? lol

I have been working on her care package. So far I have two Carters sleep and play pink lady bug outfits, 2 disposable cameras, a brush and comb set, a blanket sack sleeper and toys. I still have to get pictures in her Sassy photo book, find teeny baby hairbows and make her taggie blanket. We bought the prettiest rich turquoise satin yesterday and I am going to buy the popcorn chenille but in polyester) today for the other side. I'd like to have bright yellow or pink but I'm not having a lot of luck finding it. So I might just do white, I'll have 4 total so I can do the swaperoo and wash them.

We found out the post office has a nice sized box that you can cram full and send to China for $37. After I get done putting all her loot in, I am going to finish it off with more clothes so the foster family can use them for their next babies. The only things I want back are the cameras!

I got my stroller and it's so ugly lol. I don't know why I thought it was two shades of gray. The gray version is at Target but it's full price, $140. Mine is light tan with navy blue plaid trim - yick. I am going to grab some pretty purple fleece and do a one layer cover over the main portion of the seat to cover the navy and I am going to recover the toy bar that is on the front with the same purple. I wasn't planning on using the hood (I want to see her!) so there isn't a lot to cover up. So soon it will be light tan and purple, a little better hopefully closer to what I imagined :)

Off I go to the nursery now, I have a ton of stuff and there is just one baby coming - you'd think they had referred me a soccer team lol With the stroller and it's huge box in the way you can't walk through it yet lol
