I love the bright colors and simple styling of this one. It's sweet and festive.
This one feels so modern to me, and it can have multiple photos on it.
Again, I love the modern feel of this one, that it can have three pictures, and the colorful lettering.
Some possible card worthy shots from our days in the snow:
Having a snow ball fight with her grandpa (while blowing bubbles, a favorite past time of hers.)
Snuggling with me to keep warm,
And getting squishy smooches from her mommy and daddy.
Right now, Shutterfly has a promotion for 50 free holiday cards (what more could a new mom want?) All you have to do is blog about it! Simple enough. I'm thrilled that at a time when so many people are strapped for cash and are having to do away with certain non-essentials (for us, one of those things was going to have to be Christmas cards, actually), this wonderful company is making it possible for us to share with our friends and family. Thank you Shutterfly!See here for details.

We had an amazing time...playing non traditional games, catching up with friends, and of course opening mountains of baby items!

I miss egg yolk. Like you wouldn't believe. I had no idea this would be the item that I wanted the most, but I have made Tim swear that the first meal I have will be a perfectly poached egg on toast with asparagus, prosciutto and feta cheese. My mouth is watering. Yum.
I'm also missing my clothes. Maternity clothes were fun for awhile, but how many times can you wear the same 5 outfits before you are just plain bored?
I'm most looking forward to wearing:
My suede boots! Yes, they fit, but walking with any extra height is an extremely dangerous game when 1) you're clumsy to start with; and 2) you're pregnant
My leather motorcycle jacket...so pretty, so soft, so small...
My favorite jeans ever.
My pretty detailed tops.
As well as so many others...oh clothes (and egg yolk). How I miss you.
(All the clothes are of the recently deceased Martin + Osa variety. Hence, no links.)

How adorable would she be opening her first ever Christmas presents (or, to be more accurate, sleeping through us opening her first ever Christmas presents) in this little ditty?And traveling to Papa's house as a prettier version of St. Nick?
Just look at the feet on these...we do tend to celebrate on both Christmas Eve and Christmas...this could work.And, of course, I already have a few tid bits:
Cause every little girl needs some Christmas underclothes. It's just how it is.

Any tips for what to pack for the hospital, or must haves for when we get home a few days later?

Lord Jesus, we bring before you your precious child, Erin and her new little baby girl. What a wonderful and amazing miracle this is. We know that you have knit this little one together, and you already know every hair that will be on her head, the color of her eyes, the tilt of her chin. You know her hopes and dreams, her gifts and talents, her strengths and weaknesses. You have formed her amazing little personality to your precise specifications (which Erin and Tim might need some reminding of as the years go by).
Lord, Thank you for the awesome gift you are about to place in Erin and Tim's hands. May you give them the strength, love, wisdom, joy, peace and sense of humor that they will need as they raise this little one in your magnificent love and faithfulness.
We place this precious baby girl in your hands knowing that you will never leave her, that you will be beside her all the days of her life. Thank you for this promise from your word.
And Lord, I want to thank you for Erin's loving mom, Ellen, who was such a great role model for a mother that faithfully loved, nurtured, guided, and taught your promises to her children. Thank you for the friend she was to all of us and the way she touched each one of us in her unique way. If possible, let her know how much we love her and miss her, and will be seeking her again one day.
I pray as her friends, we will take seriously the task of encouraging and loving her daughter Erin, her son-in-law Tim and this new little life that is about to come into the world.
Thank you for the blessing of new life.
In your name we pray, Amen.
What an amazing start to a wonderful day. I am so grateful for these wonderful women.
