...rare moments...

The toddler is napping upstairs & the baby is napping on the floor beside me.  There is no laundry to do, no floors to vacuum, no dinner to prepare.

It's a once a year occurrence.  Our family is on vacation this week with my mom, stepdad, brother & sister-in-law.  We're at an amazing house in Pebble Beach and with the abundance of hands to hold baby Gabby & extra bodies to run with Jeremy, I have had some time to do...nothing important.

I got to read some friends' blogs & realized how long it has been since I posted anything!  Since my last post our family has grown by one sweet girl.  Baby Gabby Girl (so nicknamed by her big brother) took a hold of our hearts on June 1st.  It has been amazing to see how she has changed our family & the tenderness that her brother shows her melts my heart.  I love to hear him talking to her, and often find him holding her hand or stroking her head while he sits close and tells her secrets.  He can make her smile like crazy & she does not take her eyes off of that kid if he's around.  It is going to be such a sweet relationship & I am so excited to see it grow.
Big brother meets his baby for the first time.

What does all of this have to do with WeeWants?  Well, needless to say, blankets have taken a bit of a backseat to the new life changes that we've been adjusting to the last 2 months.

My plan is to have my Etsy shop back open by the end of August.  I'll be ready to start taking orders for all of those fall babies (or presents for the summer babies, since they didn't need blankets when they were born)!

Make sure to "like" WeeWants on Facebook to stay tuned for updates about the shop & a reopening sale!

...Until then...I hope you have some time to do nothing today!

Shower #1 (of 3)

A few weeks ago I had the privilege of throwing a baby shower for one of my closest friends.  She is welcoming a baby girl in less than a month (at the point of the shower there were about 2 months before baby). 

The shower was a great success.  Her mother in law was willing to host it at her home & took the table decorating to the next level, there was a great team working to get food & other decorations together... It was beautiful! 

We had a great time together eating & talking and then were able to spend some time encouraging my friend and praying for her. 

Then of course came the presents...lots & lots of pink things!  She is going to have one of the best little girls around!  

And if you are wondering about a blanket (since that is what most of the posts are about)...I made was really cute.  I'm going to blame my baby brain on the fact that I didn't take a picture of it.  Hopefully when little N gets here, we will be able to have a picture of her with her blanket.  For now, her big brother is enjoying it while mommy is trying to keep it away from him!  

I cannot wait for shower #2 next weekend for another one of my great friends!

...up and running!

The shop is OPEN!  Check out the items that have been added to the shop for 2012! 

I don't know about any of you, but within my group of friends, there are going to be at least 10 babies born this year...and that only takes us til JUNE! 

Time to start thinking about what you want to get for these babies & mommies to welcome their little one. 

Visit the Etsy shop at or e-mail me at to place your order!  I am SO happy to do custom orders, so don't be afraid to ask!
