Oh, Baby

I believe this is the only non-birthday card I have this month.  I managed to squeeze in a card for my niece's baby shower...well, the shower I couldn't go to.  She already knows she's having a boy, which made my job much easier.  She's registered for some fabulous baby stuff, but she doesn't live here, so I'm just going to mail the card and a gift card for said fabulous stuff to her.  She hasn't lost her love for shopping yet, so I'm sure she won't mind going out to ooh & aah over all the cute stuff herself.  I love buying baby stuff, but since I'm sooo totally done having babies, it can be a little bittersweet.  You can buy the booties, but you won't get to smell them on a baby's sweet little feet.  Or the tiny baby clothes that you can't imagine would fit on anything but a doll. Oh, how I miss all of that.  It takes me back to when my girls were babies...then someone from the other room yells, "Mom! She's wearing my sweater!" or my personal favorite, "Mom! She's looking at me!"  Yes, still.  *sigh* Snaps me right back to reality and I wonder what in the world I was thinking to start all of this in the first place.  Once again, I blame Shawn.

The simplicity of the image and the sentiment so matches the simplicity of the card and the colors, all of which works together as a perfect card for this occasion! And yes, funny how it works out that when you are holding your sweet new baby it never occurs to you that one day they will be older and capable of making you wonder what the heck you were thinking when you decided to have a baby. But hey, it's all worth it.

Worth it? Tell me it's worth it AFTER I'm done paying for college...
BTW, love the card. I was expecting to see another birthday card and just sighed when I saw one for a new baby. Made me wish I could just HOLD another baby.

Hee, hee! I posted about my DS turning ten yesterday. Definitely bittersweet.

Your card is adorable! Love all the white space, and the sweet image!
