One of the highlights of the reunion for me was a joint baby shower for my cousin and I. We're due on the same day; she's having a boy. I could not believe how many outfits I got! I absolutely love how cute and tiny the clothes are - especially the little ruffles on the bum. I also think the little polka dots, flowers, butterflies, and animals are so precious. I don't think I'll have to buy clothes for the first year, and she'll be the best dressed baby ever! :) All of my aunts and cousins were so generous! We had to split everything up in multiple suitcases to get them all home.

Our 6 month-old nephew, Daniel, was DEFINITELY the hit in our family. :) We all took turns holding him, playing with him, or just being around him so as not to miss a single cute moment or facial expression!
|He's such a happy little guy!|

|Daniel was a champ during the fireworks. He actually wasn't phased by them at all.|
As a side note, to keep myself busy since school has been out, I've been working on a couple projects. I made some file folder games for my niece who just turned 3 and have been sewing bibs and burp cloths. I have lots of sewing projects planned for the baby. This has been my first solo sewing project, and it's been a lot harder than I expected, but I still love how they've turned out.
