Last weekend we attended a baby shower for our good friends and their baby, Charlie. Charlie was bron only 3 weeks after Griffin, but he was bron at 29 weeks, so he is still in the hospital. Since I make baby blankets, I figured that would be a good shower gift. They were going for a green, grey, blue color scheme, so after going through the fabrics I decided on a snake print. Here is the blanket.
Here is a more close up of the print
Charlie is a really amazing and strong baby, and it is something you don't think about until you have a baby of your own, and how difficult it must be to see your baby in the hospital. I don't know if I could do it, and our friends are really brave and tough people for dealing with it so well. Charlie is 2 months old today and even though he has his ups and downs, I think he is doing pretty great for a tiny little thing!
The theme of the shower was this character
They had photos of Charlie around to look at, and lots of fun games. Here is one where you guess how many tic tacs in the bottle.
