Waiting for Parker!

Over the weekend, my mom and I headed down to Pennsylvania to visit my brother and sister-in-law, who are expecting their first baby mid-December.  To say I am excited about meeting this little guy would be an understatement. (I may have teared up a bit just thinking about him twice over the weekend!).  We attended the baby shower Sunday and it was really REALLY beautiful! The theme was “a little pumpkin is on his way”. Jessica’s mom totally outdid herself with the PERFECT décor…IMG_6144IMG_6159

In honor of this little man’s upcoming arrival, I made onesies to celebrate each month of his first year!onesie

I’ve seen the monthly onesie idea on Pinterest before and loved it, but I wanted to customize it a bit more for Parker (and Phil & Jess!). My brother just completed his degree in athletic training; sports are clearly going to be a big part of this family’s life. I found a font that reminded me of a vintage(ish?) sports jersey and varsity style numbers for the months 1-12. I printed them off onto iron-on transfers from Staples and used my Silhouette Cameo to cut them out, then ironed on following the transfer instructions.  onesie2Love the way they turned out (and I wish I had taken a picture of them all together!!! ah well, next time).

I was so flattered to be asked by Jess and Phil to take a few photos for them after the shower! These are some of my favourites 🙂IMG_6252-2IMG_6239-3IMG_6236-2It does not surprise me one bit that he’s already got his own hockey jersey 🙂 And see those awesome baseball doorknobs on the closet? My brother made them!!! I guess craftiness runs in the family!IMG_6260-2I cannot adequately express how excited I am to meet this little guy and welcome him into our family…IMG_6277And for these two! Love them 🙂IMG_6230-2
