I’ve got a mix of a post for you today. But I wanted to do a full update.
On Saturday morning, my friends and I hosted a fun “little man” shower for our friend, Julie. Julie and Matt are having their little boy in just a few weeks and we’re so excited for them! (I left all the hostess pictures off the blog because I didn’t ask their permission if I could post it. Ha!)
Between all the six hostesses we put together a yummy brunch spread. Todd was kind enough to let us use his office (an old home) for the shower.
We had banana bread, key lime cupcakes, pistachio pineapple salad, sausage and egg casserole, cinnamon rolls, veggies and mini ham biscuits. It was a delicious brunch and I am seriously impressed with my friends’ culinary abilities.
The talented girls at Sweet Birdie’s Nest created the fun “little man” paper collection for us. Once again, the paper quality is great and the designs are adorable. And they are so easy to work with!
And my friend, Lulu McGee made the fun little tie and bow tie onesies for Baby Matthew.
My friend (and co-host) Rachel, brought the most fun game to play. I’d never played it before, but really enjoyed it! She played a CD where every song had the word “babe” or “baby” in the title. The guests had to write down the name of the song after hearing 30 seconds of the song and name the song artist. It was lots of fun!
Julie got some wonderful gifts and it was a fun morning with friends.
Todd and I are on a mission (I guess I’m on a mission and Todd is along for the ride) to see all of the Best Picture nominees before the Academy Awards.
We’ve seen The Help, War Horse, Moneyball, Midnight in Paris and we saw The Descendants this weekend. I have really loved all of the movies I’ve seen so far! We have The Tree of Life coming via Netflix this week and I’ve been warned that it’s a little bit “different.” I can’t wait to see!
I’m not hosting a party this year, but I’ll definitely have my popcorn and ballott ready on Oscar night!
Y’all, I am just so excited that my boys are starting to interact with each other. Hudson asks to sit next to Hayes in the little chair a couple of times a day. In some way, I think he knows he’s getting his picture taken, even though he refuses to look at the camera, but he likes sitting by his brother.
He also likes to get in the crib with Hayes to play just about every day. Sometimes they laugh and sometimes they fight over a toy. Hudson actually did try to hit Hayes once, but I figure that’s the first of many times that will happen. But I’m just so excited that they’re laughing together and that Hudson is talking to Hayes.
Hayes in his funny “baby legs.” (He spends most of his time in plain onesies or pajamas, so we have to warm up his little legs.)
