At my baby shower Saturday, I was blown away by the handmade gifts I received. I am really so blessed to have friends and family willing to take the time to make something so special for the baby.

Julie, whose work has made an appearance here before, hosted the shower, and sewed these very sweet burp cloths. She had been at my house a few weeks earlier and was checking out the colors in the baby's room, but I had no idea she had something up her sleeve.

She must have also reported the pink and green theme to our co-worker Irene, who sewed this maya wrap sling. I am so excited because I had this on my list of things to make before the baby gets here. I can't wait to use it!

E's mom decorated her packages with several pairs of these tiny booties. Aren't they great? I hope I can put them on the baby long enough to get a photo!

My mom bought these knitted booties from caramel diezel on etsy. The colors are delicious!

We also received a gorgeous quilt from E's mom, but it deserves a post of its own!
