baby details

The countdown has begun! Everything is being washed in Dreft, gently folded and waiting for our baby girl!
Some finishing touches, like this butterfly, are added to the tiny white onesies.
The blankets I sewed for her are not only as cute as her little bottom but just as soft too.
And you didn't think scrapbooking supplies was just for scrapbooking, right? I put together some flowers for her pretty little head. Collin was so cute with baby Avery and everyday put a tiny bow with some karo syrup on her head. Well, now he has a garden to choose from.

What do you think?-I'm guessing a week from today she'll make her grand entrance! Avery surprised us a day early. Our Doctor told us yesterday that this little babe is pretty cozy in my tummy at the moment. :)

PS Join me tonight at the Creating Keepsake's Message Board! I am hosting Happy Hour from 8-10 Mountain Standard time. (10-12 Eastern) It'll be a party you don't want to miss!

OOohhh! How exciting!!! Prayers for a safe and sound delivery for both mama and baby!

Let's see, in my experience, the little buggers never like to come when expected so I will say one week and two days from today! But for your sake... 5 days from now! :)

Latrice said...

I'll miss HH tonight at CK, but hoping you have a great 5 days to come. Maybe tonight at HH huh? LOL!! The clothes, bows and blakies are gorgeous.

Karo syrup?! Been there done that too!!

Enjoy you last few days pregnant.

I had the SAME question as posted above - about what you use for clips. Are you just using the 1 1/4 inch snap clips?

briTT&joNNy said...

Good luck with everything!

I love love love the hair ribbons!!!! I would be going crazy if my little was not here yet
(mine were 7 days early). I can't wait to see her sweet little face!!

Brock Family said...

Great stuff! I love the blankets and bows. Good luck with everything! It is so exciting! We still have about 6 weeks until our little guy gets here, but I'm already counting down! Enjoy every minute!

Cassie said...

Okay, someone needs to explain the Karo syrup thing.
I'll try to make HH tonight.
Love the butterfly on the onsie...very cute!

Erin said...

Oh my goodness!!! These are so adorable! It makes me wish I had a daughter too!

Heather K said...

Is Collin going to update us when the baby makes her grand appearance? Can't wait to hear all about her...here's praying for a quick, safe, and relatively painless delivery.

Sarah E. said...

I love all of the preparation pictures! I will see you at HH tonight! :)

Sara said...

Love the onesie & the blanket! Good luck on an easy & safe delivery!

The Watsons said...

That is so hilarious because I just started doing all that today. I've got onesies appliqued, flowers all ready to gluestick into our new baby Penelope's hair and I finished my first quilt for her. But, I also made her first tutu with a matching flower at the waistband, so I think you should do some for your new baby. Seriously, how cute are newborns in onesies & tutus? And they are so dang easy! But I am jealous you only have a week, I have a little under 2 months. Lucky girl

Hayley said...

Can't wait to see yournew little bundle!!! The blankets, onsie and bows are adorable!!

Congrats again!!!
Hayley

adrienne leigh said...

Holly said...

Just a week??? How did the time fly by so fast? That prego picture you put on your blog...that's you TOTALLY PREGNANT??? You're a lucky girl:) I don't know how you find the time to be so crafty! Everything you've made is so cute! Let us know if you need anything!

Kristen said...

Liz I can't believe you only have a week to go! If you need anything let me know! I'm just right down the street from you. Oh, we need to do that girls lunch asap! :)

min said...

All of the nesting and preparing... how fun! Hope labor is a breeze.. can't wait to see Avery with her!

Rena said...

oh dang i missed it.
i had to look at my calendar to see what day it was. thursday! what happened to wednesday? i will hopefully catch the live chat next time.

Jake and Jessica Fillmore said...

How cute liz! I made some cute onesies too off of the Martha Stewart website. I love the iron-on applique idea. Little girls are so much fun, I cant wait to have ours! Good luck with everything!

justynapalasiewicz said...

I've never heard of using Karo syrup to put bows on a baby head. I wish my mom knew that little trick when I was a round-headed, bald little thing. As for that onesie, it's adorable! I wanted to do something like that for my cousin, but couldn't find fabric I liked in enough time, so I made a shadowbox instead.
I hope everything goes well and safely with the new baby! It's too exciting! God bless you four!

Erin said...

We're so excited for you guys! Be sure to let us know when she arrives so we can stop by to meet the new little one.

Laie PTCO said...

Liz, hey it's Margaret Olson! So seriously where do you find the time!! How I wish I could be crafty like you are, everything is so cute. Maybe in the next life I'll have a little more martha in me...

Kit Kartchner said...

We're so excited to meet your precious bundle of joy. . even bow-less, and in a sheet, she'd be the most beautiful thing on earth to us!

Love you and hope you take it easy and rest up..there are lots of sleepless nights coming!

I just got back from Target shopping for baby gifts for our friend that is having his first today! I was inspired by your cute bows and I am going to make little hair clips for the wee one right now!!

Becky said...

Elizabeth, I just LOVE these little newborn goodies and I have a friend delivery twins anyday. Do you have any tips/directions for making the onesie? If you get a sec can you let me know. You can e-mail me at simplyenjoyphotography@gmail.com. Thank YOU!!!!

Just wanted to let you know that you inspired me yet again. I made a poor attempt to sew a cute heart on my daughter's shirt. Why had I not thought of this before? Such a good idea.
