{woah baby!}

Last night was my friend Tara's baby shower! She is such a sweet girl, and I was glad to help her friend Emily with the preparations.

Em did such a great job with setting everything up so nice! Her house was adorable and I was so impressed with this diaper cake! Isn't it clever?I made the cupcakes & the favors. (That Betty Crocker knows her stuff!) Just throw some canned icing into a disposable frosting bag with a cute tip, add some sprinkles, and you have pretty, delicious cupcakes! The favors were a little tin pot with soil pellets & wheat grass seeds. The card read, "Thank you for celebrating Tara & her little sprout!" & included instructions on how to grow the seeds.

(These were so easy & cheap! Pots: Ikea 3 for $1, Soil Pellets: Walmart 20 for $2 (I put 2 pellets in each pot), Seeds: Engh Gardens $2.95 for a big bag, Velum envelopes: Joanns $1.99 for a package of 10, Ribbon: Joanns $1.50 for a roll (I used the 40% off coupon), and the paper & cellophane I already had.)

Tara got so many cute gifts! These little outfits were my favorite! Can't you just picture a chubby little baby wearing this? Eeee!!!This little guy was Tara's friends new baby. He was so sweet and such a cuddle bunny! Plus, he was such a good baby! He slept most of the night!

I love quiet, calm, sleeping newborns. I want Colton to revert back to that stage.
