Welcoming Baby Etsy Style!

She's finally here! Our little Bundle of Joy arrived in January and it has been a whirlwind of activity around the house since she came home. My mom and dad arrived the day after we came home from the hospital and spent about 5 weeks with us. It was fabulous! I know, a lot of people are thinking those must have been 5 very long weeks but we all get along well and my folks love my husband. Plus, with three little bitties in the house, there was plenty for all to do! Another highlight was the 1st ever Etsy Virtual Baby Shower. What a fantastic idea! Another Etsymom told me about the Baby Shower, so I registered for it before the baby was born. Several Etsy shopowners graciously signed up to donate gifts to recent moms and moms-to-be. Then on January 28th, an online baby shower was held, introducing the moms, featuring some of the donor shops, and even playing "shower" games! I've already received 2 of my gifts. We got this cute, soft little "Brownie" bear from panapizza. And this sweet little bunny rabbit from Auntiejill. My good friend Melissa from Petal Heads sent me this gorgeous pink headband for our little bambina! We're blessed to be a part of the Etsy family and will no doubt be contributing as donors in the next shower! Welcome baby Spice!
