"For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb. I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made." -Pslam 139:13-14

25+ diapers (I used size 2)
clear hair rubber bands
curling ribbon (2 colors)
Cardboard letters (to spell name)
main (bigger) toy or stuffed animal
small baby items (the lighter the better!)
Place your main toy (or stuffed animal) in the bottom middle. Then, take into consideration all of the small baby items you have to include in the wreath. Get an idea of where you wish to place these things so that the display looks symmetrical. Travel size bath products work really well. If the mommy registered you might take into account some small items remaining on her list! Bibs, spoons, tiny shoes and washcloths work well. Onesies and other items can be much too heavy. Secure the items with ribbon (I found tulle to work better on some items).
I like to put the baby's first name on the very top to give it a personal touch!. These cardboard letters come in all colors!
Not only is July National Ice Cream and Purposeful Parenting month.....and not only is today National Cowboy day but it is also Cousins day! Yes, they have a day for EVERYthing :) Just check out Holidays for Everyday! I am blessed with a total of 16 first cousins and I can honestly say that they are among my favorite people in the world! I have so many wonderful childhood memories of our holidays and gatherings! We still get together as much as possible.
This past week we welcomed Miss Anaiah Bauman into the world!! She is my tiniest second cousin and is absolutely precious :)
By the way, tomorrow (July 25) is both National Hot Fudge Sundae AND merry-go-round day! I told you, there is a day for EVERYthing!! :)

The sweetest sound on Earth is Emma singing "Jesus Loves the little Children" and reciting Bible verses. Two verses in particular that her Sunday school class has been working on are:
As for me and my house we will serve the Lord. -Joshua 24:15
Love one another. John 13:34

The kiss :)
This is where the sanctary sat - it was connected to the bldg on the R. The bldg on the L was the church nursery where I spent lots of time as a little girl :)
God is our refuge and strength. A very present help in trouble.
