Themed Baby Shower Gift

Yesterday was Jenn’s baby shower and I had so much fun! Yummy food, fun games and great people to mingle with.

The gift I brought had a ‘theme’:

1. Something they want
2. Something they need
3. Something to wear
4. Something to read

For ‘something they want’, I bought toys: joining links and soft blocks.

For ‘something they need’, I bought receiving blankets.

For ‘something to wear’, I bought onesies, a cardigan and a super cute bowtie.

For ‘something to read’, I bought Love You Forever by Robert Munsch.

For anyone who hasn’t come across this book, it an adorable (albeit a little creepy towards the end) story about a little boy who makes his way from a baby to a man and his mother who loves him a whole lot.

Throughout the book, the mother sings her son this beautiful lullaby:

“I’ll love you forever, I’ll like you for always, as long as I’m living, my baby you’ll be”

I used these lyrics to DIY some canvas artwork for baby W’s room.

Jenn seemed to really like them 🙂 

Stay tuned tomorrow for instructions (and free printables!) for this easy and inexpensive project.

And for anyone keeping track of Jenn’s pregnancy pics, there will be another one in a few days!
