On Valentines Day we ventured up north to Mammoth Lakes, CA. I had all our goodies packed to entertain Easton...puffs, toys, the iPad etc. We decided to drive at the beginning of his first nap, which was a good choice because he slept for almost 2 hours. We made a stop after about 4 1/2 hours to stretch our legs and grab a bite to eat and of course let the babe out of the car for a bit.
|All ready to go|
Our first day there the others went snowboarding and I had planned to hang out at the homestead with Easton. However, I got really brave and put him in his snow outfit, baby bjorned him and took a bus ride up to the mountain base and then took a gondola up the mountain to meet everyone for lunch!

My poor boy has no idea what he is in for with this mama! You better believe that he sent out his first valentines. Since this little love bug knows how to sit long enough for me to snap a picture...I was able to capture his cuteness when wearing his smooches tie onesie, courtesy of his Gramma. My card designer over at handpickednotions.blogspot.com whipped up a Valentine and had it printed at our local staples print center for me to pick up! I was super excited because I got to use our personalized stamp on the envelopes!

To bring on that lovin' feeling I whipped up a quick felt Valentines banner for our mantel. I simply cut out a heart after tracing it on cardboard, used it as a stencil, and cut my hearts! I then sewed through a piece of yarn and taped it on up there!
Of course we have our chalkboard updated to add to the decor!

When planning the decor for my besties shower we were thinking blue, brown and vintage!
One of the projects I was in charge of was the onesie banner! My mom made one of these for my baby shower and Easton wore his tie and bow tie shirts all August long! Since this little one will be born in the winter I decided to go with long sleeved onesies. While making these I just kept imagining holding a tiny baby wearing these cute little things! I can't wait to get my hands on him.

Last week the weather was beautiful and Easton got to sport a short sleeved onesie! Sad to think next time it is hot he will be wearing big kid outfits...time flies way to fast! Since it is February of course I bought some Valentines shoes for my baby man. They are from Old Navy and I just couldn't help myself! After his morning nap we sat outside and enjoyed some sunshine...and ate some shoe for a snack.

When brainstorming ideas for "THE" baby shower we came up with the idea of adding a little snippet to the invitation requesting the guests to bring their favorites children's book (optional of course). We were very happy with the amount of books baby London was given for his baby library. We had the guests fill out a label for their book so that in the years to come the little one will know who got him these lovely books!
