Celebrate the Little Things: Printable Thank You Cards | this heart of mine

It’s that time – the party is over, the food has been eaten, the decorations have been put away, the gifts have been opened. Now is the time for thank you notes. Ever since I was little, writing a thank you note after receiving a gift or kind gesture has been my process. It all started with my mom’s belief in the importance of showing thanks and it’s been ingrained. I don’t feel as though things are complete until I write a note. With Pipsqueak’s arrival, I thought I might have use for a thank you card or two (not to mention the kindness and generosity we are receiving due to our imminent move). And you know me, I wanted to create my own. The good thing is my work is your gain because this version is printable!

My girls, Jen, Melissa, MJ and Ali, and the kind folks at Munchkin sure treated my family and me kindly. A gorgeous welcome ribbon chandelier DIY, a gourmet PB&J bar and table decor using items my family can use after the party. Then we received some sweet gifts like the darling Onester above. Pipsqueak looks good in blue and the weather has been just warm enough for him to wear it this week. He is a bit of a sweat ball so the double-layer fabric on the front will keep him warm while the one-layer on the back will keep him from getting too warm. And the LATCH pacifier coordinates perfectly.

I am so excited to use the Fresh Feeding Starter Set. We did all homemade foods for Love Bug and Sweet J and plan to with Pipsqueak. I’m glad we get to start anew for Pip. Just because he’s the third one doesn’t mean everything has to be a hand-me-down. The diaper caddy sure is helpful to while we pack up the house. At least we’ll be able to keep track of the diaper-changing essentials, as long as no one puts in a box without a label……

And finally, the sweet owl nightlight. When Sweet J first saw it, his guess was that it was a baby owl mask. After laughing about that for a good long time, we explained it was a nightlight and ever since, it’s been used in our bedtime routine. Once the older two drop off to sleep, I fish it out of the covers and then use it myself for Pipsqueak and my nighttime activities.

Of course, my favorite gift is my sweet Pipsqueak and he makes thank you note writing a snuggle-fest. It’s the best.

Check out this cute table decor for our Celebrate the Little Things baby shower in honor of our Pipsqueak! Darling, right?! MJ of Pars Caeli created these sweet decorations using colorful items from Munchkin. It’s a double win: cute props for the party and afterwards, useful items for every day life. I just love the ‘banner’ below made of foam bath letters. Adorable!

The full details are over on Pars Caeli!

I have a post for you tomorrow!

Celebrate the Little Things: Gourmet PB & J Bar | this heart of mine

After the Welcome Ribbon Chandelier yesterday, it’s all about baby shower food today! Melissa of Lulu the Baker created a fabulous gourmet pb & j bar and my mouth just waters when I think about it. All the options, all the flavor possibilities. Yum! A peanut butter and jelly sandwiches is still one of my comfort foods. There was one summer of my youth where I think I ate one every single day. It was easy to make and fast and oh so good. Melissa’s bar takes the ordinary and kicks it way up to gourmet with style and color.

Get all the yummy details on Lulu the Baker.

Family of Five

pipsqueak

After so much impatient waiting, our sweet babe, Pipsqueak Shadow, finally joined us last weekend, making us officially a family of five. We are definitely in love. This week was filled with snuggling and staring for long periods of time at his sweet face. And naps. I’m in heaven. Pipsqueak Shadow is the nickname Sweet J’s came up with months ago and it stuck. I think it’s pretty perfect.

In the following weeks, I’m taking a break while we get a handle on this family of five situation, pack up our house and try to find our new normal. Thanks to the kindness of my talented friends, I have guest posts lined up to share plus a week long baby shower series celebrating our new addition starting next week! I’ll be popping in with a post every now and then. Where will we be? I don’t know quite yet but I’m keeping the faith that all our unknowns will become knowns in time.

It’s been a big week and I am so thankful for your kind words on our new family member. You guys are the best.

Happy weekend!!
