As you know, I am Mommy to one son. I'm Aunt Cindy to three nephews. So when my sister announced that she was expecting a baby girl, I was really excited. I would have been excited to have a new nephew, of course, but I can't wait to meet my first niece. Only a few more weeks!
I'm going to be making a creative gift for the family after the baby is born, but I also wanted to get them something to open at the baby shower. Trevor and I went to the baby store and headed right into the girl section. Unfamiliar territory for me! As I was looking at the frilly pink and lavender dresses, Trevor made a beeline to this outfit (and yes, it was in the girls' section):
Even though it's not frilly, pink or girly in any way, it is perfect. My sister, brother-in-law and nephew are huge Disney fans. Each fall, we celebrate my nephew's birthday with a Disney trip. So we chose a size that will (hopefully) fit my new niece during the next trip.
Here is the card I made to go with the gift. Not your traditional baby shower card!
Here's how the gift looked. Not traditional either.
