Last Minute Details and Fun Giveaway

I've been filling up Westin's nap times with last minute details.  It is actually really nice to know the date and time she will be here (Lord willing.)  :) 

I bought a 1/4 of a yard of some coordinating fabrics and ripped them into strips to make this fabric banner.  I just tied them on some twine and plan on using this in some of her newborn pictures.  It is not staying on the crib.  :) 

It hit me the other day that Easter is just a few days after she will be born.  So I started picking up some things for Westin's Easter basket.  I got it all put together today so I got to cross one more thing off my to-do list. 

I love the idea that the new baby gets the older sibling a present.  Westin knows who gave him every single toy he has.  He has to tell me who gave it to him every time he plays with a toy.  So Reagan will be "giving" these toys and candy to Westin when he meets her.  Every time he plays with these cars, I know he will be telling me that Reagan gave them to him.  :)  Plus, he will have some entertainment in the hospital.

Her bag is packed!  Still working on mine...

I packed her stickers from Watch Me Grow too!  They even sent Westin one and a back-up for Reagan in case she decides to come early.  :)  You can find their shop HERE.

For the giveaway-They are giving away TEN sets of monthly stickers to the first TEN expecting moms who blog that email them!  If you blog and are expecting a baby, email them at watchmegrowstickers at   Good luck!

I bought some Easter candy (Sour Patch jelly beans!) the other day and needed my Easter candy jar to put it in.  So I had Cody get the Easter bins out of the attic and it inspired me to put a few decorations out.  These are the only ones I got a picture of though.  I printed the bunny print I found on pinterest from THIS blog. 

There are still several things on my to-do list but they are getting checked off slowly but surely.  One week from today!

Her room is absolutely beautiful. I especially love her sweet little garland!

Did you make Westin's Easter bucket or did you buy it? I want to do the same thing with a large tub for icing down drinks like bottled water at home when we have guests!

Her room is just precious--like the rest of your house! I can't believe she's almost here! I am so excited for y'all! May God continue to bless you!

I love the fabric banner you made.

I love the fabric banner and it is such a sweet idea to give a gift to Westin from his baby sister. I need to remember that idea.

Hi Shannon, I love your blog and i think your growing family is darling!
I was just wondering why you use bumper pads on the crib when it's been proven as such a contribution to SIDS and suffocation. I know alot of americans do this and the Canadian government warns not to use them. In fact, when I gave birth there were signs all over the maternity ward to not use them.
I wonder what the benefit is.
Anyway, looking forward to the new addition and you really look great!

I love the bunny print and the vintage looking Easter chicks! I haven't put out any Easter. I work for the Joplin Rhea Lana sale and I have been exhausted this week with the sale.

So excited for you!!! Can't wait to see the new baby!!!
