Thank You Lynn!

Lynn from Canada sent a wonderful package that was waiting for us when we got home from the hospital. What good timing! However, it took me a while to get it opened, and I apologize, a bit longer to get pictures taken!

Pretty pairs of shoes to grow into, receiving blankets and 'The World's Smallest Diaper Bag.'

The diaper bag is really neat - Lynn took a lunchbox (with little lunchbox containers in it) and really packed the compartments full of useful and handy-to-reach things! There was a nice small 'Nuby' bottle, but it's already in the dishwasher.

Sleepers and a handknit baby sweater and booties!

Lynn also sent a lot of clothes that Esme can grow into, and a few things that fit her now (such as the cute yellow sleeper in Wednesday's post. The handknit sweater and booties are so cute - and they have little 'lamb' buttons on them ;) It was such a surprise! She must have dropped a couple of hints on her blog including one 'Which November baby is this for?' but I didn't think it could be Esme! What pretty wonderful work Lynn! The yarn is also very soft and 'cushy' :)

She also sent a few snowsuits, which I haven't seen for sale yet here at this 'warm' time of the year. They'll work great for when we do visit my parents in Minnesota sometime next year when Esme is bigger. There was a very nice gift for Mark as well! :)

I like that smallest diaper bag in the world idea. You can never have too much convenience when you have a baby. Or too much rest. That song you have for her must be very special too. It probably eased her transition a lot,comeing into this world must be a shock for any baby.

Wow! Thanks for the post! I started that diaper bag for me. Since my first son (who is 21 now) I think I have made at least 12 of them as gifts. I am not sure of what it is like in the US when someone has a baby. But here in Canada we give baby showers. Usually one from the Mom side of the family and one from the Dad side of the family, and possibly one from work. This is a party to shower the mom-to-be with gifts so the baby can get a head start. So I thought of my presents as a shower gift to a shower I could not attend. :)
And the bigger clothes came from this great Red Cross shop that sells used stuff cheap for charity. I litterally never paid greater than $2.00 for any one item! I love those kind of bargains. I shoppped like that for my kids so I could spend money wisely.
