It’s official! Not only are all of our friends getting married, but now they are officially having sweet little ones!
This week (on 9/11/12 at 9:11 a.m. to be exact) our friends Stephanie and Dane welcomed their son, Whit, into the world.
I’ve been a little under the weather this week, so have not been able to go to the hospital to meet Whit, but was able to celebrate with his parents at a baby shower we hosted last weekend for the Fehrs and another couple in our small group due in November.
To welcome Whit home, I crafted up a fun something to go in his primary colors (teacher parents!) & monkey themed room.
I couldn’t be more excited about how it turned out and am already thinking about all of the possibilities for these. Scrapbook paper can work wonders, I tell ya.
However, the first attempt at a monkey looked like this:
Remind you of anything?
The hubs kindly notified me that it looked strikingly like Simba, but qualified that statement with: “It’s still cute!” Cute is key in a baby room, but I quickly realized that Simba wouldn’t do in a room full of Abus. Hence, the re-do of the monkey to create the tree-hanging one you see above!
More than anything, I just can’t wait to meet Whit and see him hanging out in his super fun nursery! Welcome to the world, Whit! There are big things in store for you!
