I just went to the funnest baby shower. What are the odds that BOTH of my sisters are pregnant and due the same week?!! Too, fun, right?!! Well, my sweet aunts decided to help throw a double shower for them in Utah. That meant my sisters and I gathered from 3 different states to head up there- and it was so wonderful!! 

Here were some of the best gifts (sadly I didn't capture everything!) - and a couple that I received when my last baby was born.

1. Milk Snob

Anyone who knows me, knows I am passionate about this product. I think maybe I need to find out if they want to pay me for advertising. :) But seriously, I've used these things for so many different things. They are meant to be a nursing or car seat cover. But I've also used them as a burp cloth- they are great for full coverage when you are wearing a nice top or dress that you don't want to get spit up on. I've used it to swaddle my baby- especially when he was tiny in public- just to shield him from the germs. Then finally I've even used it as a slip! Ha! Ha! 

2. Diaper Cake

Isn't this the cutest!! This is a gift that my creative cousin, Lani (remember her from our podcast on Using Creativity to Get through Grief??) made for my cute sister, Heidi.  

I've seen a lot of diaper cakes in my day- but everything on this cake is usable. Head bands, shoes, diapers, hair bows, necklaces and even some clothes tucked in there. Such a cute idea!

3. Baby Milestone Growth Chart

I thought this was very cute. I hadn't seen one quite like this before. It's not made out of paper or canvas, but out of some type of vinyl material. It's sturdy, and easy to write on. I think the graphics are cute and you can customize your baby's name and the color of the chart. You can find them at Woke Baby.

4. Sit and Stand Stroller

I'm not sure what I loved more this time around having a baby, my milk snob or this fabulous sit and stand stroller. There have been times we've gone to the zoo or amusement parks and even my big kids have taken turns in there when their legs needed a break (like think 7-9 year olds).  I prefer the Graco brand so I can stick my infant car seat in there.

5. Books, Books, Books!!

I think books are such a fun gift! I am a sucker for children's literature, and they stand the test of time. Here are a few of my favorites, and a couple others my aunt introduced me to at the shower that are now on MY wish list!
