Sweet friend finds out she's expecting a little girl. At 43. With twin teen boys. Shortly after she and her husband had the big "What do we do when the twins are out of the house?" talk. Heheheh.

(Moral: go ahead, plan things. It gives God the giggles.)

All her middle-aged friends commiserate, and then plan a big party/shower, which feels a little like a schadenfreud kind of thing.

Here's the bow going on top of her otherwise puchased/practical gift (burp cloths, a gazillion wipes):


Needle-punched back, with baby's first initial:


Inside's a jinglebell, just for fun.

The next one--for a little guy named Hudson--will have shorter loops, and more of them.

(Design's not original...it's based on a photo I found online and printed...and only now that I'm trying to give credit discover that the incredibly long link on the bottom of the page doesn't actually take me anywhere...sorry. I'll try to fix it soon and give her credit.)

I like the moral, as well as the taggie.

Store bought bows are cute, but this is priceless.  A thoughtful toy and a pretty decoration all in one... I love it!

This is such a cute taggie doll!! (similar thing happened to my mom. I'm 21 and a junior in college and now I have an 8 month old baby sister! It's weird how life works out isn't it?)

Thanks, y'all. The mom loved it at her shower a few minutes ago (luncheon...that's right, we're the middle-aged "ladies who lunch." This baby's going to have about 30 "Aunty" figures in her life!!)

aisy...isn't it?! My husband was one of those surprise babies, so I'm very fond of surprises, myself! Wink

Cute! I have a nanny friend who carries taggies with her everywhere, and she would love this! Well done! Is that a sea otter face? Cheesy

thank you!

I don't know what kind of face it is...maybe it's one of those things that it is whatever YOU see?! Wink
