Finally, a baby shower for Charlotte!

I know that there are a lot of you who have followed along with the trials and journey of our grand daughter, Charlotte.  We appreciate all the thoughts and prayers that have gone up on her behalf.  God is good, and she is doing wonderfully.  She is 6 months old and rolling over now, and her weight keeps going up and up.  She started out at 2lb 2oz, in September of 2013.  But, as of her last Doctor visit, she was 11 lb... I know she weighs more now!

She has finally been given clearance to travel, and they are all coming to visit.  We decided that this would be a great opportunity to have her baby shower!  So, I have gotten busy and made a few things for her.  I showed you about the cart cover here! 


These are the 3 patterns I have chosen to follow.



Don't you love these little piggies?


Every baby needs a sun hat, especially here in California.  I used ribbon instead of a Velcro strap.


I think that an eyelet bonnet should be included in every babies wardrobe!


Look at the matching butterfly buttons.




Love the ric-rac!


This is a little blankie for her to hold onto and enjoy.  It is 12x12.  The pink is minkie and the purple is satin!



And finally, a diaper basket made with the leftovers from her bedding.  I hope that you liked this little sneak peek into Charlotte's shower gifts.  I will take lots of pictures of Charlotte so that you can see how big she's getting!!

Now a few photos of Charlotte.....


This is Papa changing her diaper shortly after she was born. 2lb 2oz.


She's holding her daddy's finger!  She was about 6 wks old when they dressed her for the first time.

 
Grammy with Charlotte.
 

 
Check out her bonnet!  A tad to big HUGE, but she will get use out of it for years to come.



The table was set with the finest that I have.  I loved making this bouquet for the centerpiece!  I could have gone on, but I wanted to save you the boredom.  This little 11 lb, blue eyed doll is safe in her own bed tonight.  Thanks for letting me share the fun I have had planning this little celebration.

Believe me, I was anything but bored reading your post and seeing all of your pictures of Charlotte. Having had a preemie myself, I have just loved seeing her progress. And with such a talented grandmother, she is sure to be the best dressed baby!

Thanks for linking up to Needle and Thread Thursday!
