DIY Labor & Delivery Nurse Gifts

If you checked in last week, you got a major sneak peek of the remodel plus an update on baby Guthrie's big arrival!  Well, now it's really time!  By the end of the week, she should be making her grand entrance!  

After an unexpected 5 day hospital stay during Paisley's delivery, we learned a lot.  We learned that making friends with the nurses was a must!  It just makes every one's time there more enjoyable!  At one point, Charlie actual had bets going on regarding the outcome of a Cubs/Cardinals game!  Luckily, they didn't hold the "Cubs Fan" thing against ME!  So for this delivery (which we're hoping will result in a much shorter hospital stay!), I whipped up these cute little nurse gifts!  I really got to know a few of the nurses that helped me during Paisley's delivery and I hope to have the same experience this time…as far as awesome nurse's goes, not delivery or length of stay!  I think this simple gift will help show my appreciation for all that they do!  Plus, they only took about 10 minutes to put together and only cost me around $10 total!


The cute little bags, pink jute and ink pens all came from the Target One Spot!  Then I just picked up the gum and chap stick at Wal-Mart! 

Quite possibly the best part is these cute little tags!  They totally make the gift, don't you agree???

And, even better…..the amazing Taryn at Design, Dining and Diapers provides them as a FREE download on her blog!  Woop Woop!

I think they turned out really cute and I hope that they show our appreciation on our big day!  

Thanks for stopping by today, y'all!  Next time we check in, we should be introducing Miss Guthrie!

It's Almost Time!!!!

Hey y'all…….It's Charlie again. Long time no see, huh?  Well, as Em has told you we have been super crazy busy around here with Operation Remodel.  I'm pretty sure she probably complained to you about being on a budget as well.  I do have to say that I hate that word too.  Especially when it involves construction, lumber and power tools <Insert Tim Tool Man Taylor Grunt here>.  Well, we made it through the budget, drywall dust, and paint and are almost completely done with the remodel.  I'll share a small sneak peek with you and will leave the total reveal to Emily (when she gets all the decorations done and fluffy pillows on the bed that you can't even lay on.)

Now, for more exciting news.  Baby #2 is going to be here any day!!! I am beyond excited.  If you didn't see what we decided to name her check it out here.  We have been going through tubs upon tubs of clothes we kept from when Paisley was a baby.  I can say that I am glad we decided to keep most of her clothes in case we had another girl.  Especially since they're going to share the same birthday month!  Major savings!!!!!

As the days get closer for Baby #2 to make her grand entrance; I feel more and more anxiety then I did when Paisley was going to be here.  I'm not quite sure why I feel this way.  I mean, we have been through this before and know what to expect.  I guess it's because me and my buddy Paisley spend everyday together and now I'm going to have to balance time with her and time with another.  Paisley helps me with everything around the house and I think she has a pretty good grasp as to what is about to happen.  Today we put together some of the babies things together and she said that she wanted to help.  So what did I do? I did what any good Dad would do, gave her a screwdriver and put her to work!

We decided that once the baby makes it here and we get settled in, we will be back to blogging like normal.  I'm pretty excited about that and we have a lot of projects to share with you. I will keep y'all posted as to when Baby G graces us with her presence and share some photos.  Until then, I will keep Emily's list of needed items to bring and the countless bags lining the hallway within arm's reach!
