Shower Gifts GALORE!!!!! What do you think?
 
So, I've been working on this for MONTHS now, ever since my friend found out see was pregnant with twins and said she wants to CD! No one around her has been supportive in that, and this is one of my dearest closest friends (known her since freshman year of high school). Had no idea how much i had actually got til i just pulled it all out! :eek: So, I'm still waiting on a few things that I am hoping and praying get here by tomorrow:
We've got:
20 infant prefolds tye-dyed by me
2 Fanciful fannies hemp contours
2 fanciful fannies AIO's
6 Fanciful Fannies Fitteds
2 Fanciful Fannies covers
2 Kissaluvs size 0
2 Kissaluvs Contours
2 Snappies
1 Stacinator (bummed that I couldn't get a second one of these)
1 handknit by me soaker
2 Bummis super whisper wraps
2 valor kid fitteds
1happy heiny fitted
1 BBL fitted
1 bottle tea tree oil
1 box of baby bits
1 diaper rash salve from Tutti Frutti Baby
2 mitt wipes and 2 regular wipes from Holdens landing
30 of Tangy's amazing wipes
a nursing ornament from Weezies Whimsies
3 dyed and stamped prefolds (one of them is infant) from Calysto
2 dyed and stamped t's from calysto
1 dyed and stamped shorts from calysto
a nursing necklace from Calysto
an organic cotton baby blanket
a bottle of Allens Naturally

what is in the works:
a baby blanket knit by me
another soaker (opposite color scheme of the one I made) knit by my dh
getting a downy ball and vinegar today
getting a diaper/garbage pail today

what I'm waiting on:
a swaddlebee tote/wetbag
6 nursing pads
2 newborn longies from Stitchin Snugglies
2 newborn longies from Merolu
a wool gift pack from Northern Essence
a diaper coin purse from Bradyns Mommy

I think thats it! did I forget anything major that I should have included in this? I'm sooooo excited to give this to her at her shower tomorrow....and hopefully show her friends/family how far cd-ing has come and how fun/easy it can be;)
It's been sooooo fun getting all these newborn dipes in the mail, gonna miss it:touched:

How do I get a friend like you?!?!

Your friend is soooo lucky! I actually created a registry and everything and all I got at my shower was a package of Gerber prefolds and pins. :yuck: Atleast the thought was there though!

And I must ask - HOW did you get your DH to knit! :thumbsup:

Enjoy that shower tomorrow - and show all those nonsupportive people just how cool CDing is now! :mrgreen:

You're awesome! What a huge variety! I'm so impressed! She's gonna be floored!!! Let us know how it goes when you give it to her! And post pics of how you package it all up. Do you have some cheap baskets you can tie it all up in??

Yeah, none of her other friends would even think of buying her cd's because all they do is tell her she's being stupid for cd-ing, especially having twins! So, this is what I've been spending my weekly allowance on for months now:laugh:
How did I get my dh to knit.....well, I wanted to learn and couldn't figure it out by reading directions, but he's GREAT at learn9ing things that way, so he learned and then taught me! So now we knit together in the evenings....it's really nice!
Yeah, maybe I'll convert a few other mamas there:)

Maybe you can present it all in a great big basket. My Joann's is clearnacing out a lot of thier baskets this week. And I specifically remember seeing a very heavy duty woven one that would be perfect! It was a large rectangle shape. ALmost like a laundry basket, but not like the wicker ones. Very cute!! HTH :D
