With less than 2 months to go, we’re getting ready for our new little addition to the family. A week ago, we had a baby shower and were reminded once again what awesome friends we have and what a great extended family the little guy will have.
We had a fun shower with all of our bike friends, some family, and lots of my friends from work. We are very excited about everything we got so I wanted to share a few special things – the beautiful handmade stuff.
Becky made him this beautiful quilt, many panels with little intricate stitching and the other side is veeerrry soft!
Phil, Linda and Brett brought a couple cute sets of hats, booties and blankies and Janette knit this awesome blanket. She picked a color that would work for an earthy baby who just may turn out to be a redhead!
The piece above is very special. Brendan was brought home from the hospital in this – handmade by his Grandma Collier.
Here is the blanket that Brendan’s Grandma Collier made as well as a set of booties and hat that Becky knit and a hat that Emi knit.
Brendan’s godmother, Irene made the cute colorful quilt and Carolyn knit the sweet little blankie on top. What amazing work!
Yumi, from Pedal One Long, of course, made a custom Siren onesie and Tee – I think he’ll be decked out in Siren garb a LOT!
Grandma Brosterhous – Patsy, that is – made this wonderful paw print outfit. She loves to sew and I think the new grandbaby just gave her another reason for many projects.
Last, but not least, the creme sweater was knit by Lissa’s cousin and the blue one was knit by Finneas’ grandma. Finneas (Todd’s boy and fellow Siren team member) passed his sweater to our baby as somewhat of a family tradition. I felt pretty honored that they passed this along to us with a note that we are family!
This time of the year is so special and add a baby in the mix. I am reminded daily of the wonderful people in my life and am so happy that my baby boy will be surrounded by such amazing friends. At just over 8 months, it’s getting very exciting!
