A few months ago, I was wasting time in the Etsy Etc forum (seriously, when am I not?), and I stumbled upon a wonderful thread... an etsy baby shower? I wasn't sure how it worked, because it seemed far too good to be true, so I sent out a quick convo, and before I knew it, I was getting contacted by a couple of gracious etsy sellers offering to send me and my Charlie some of their handmade creations.
My 2nd package that arrived, was from etsy seller TweedleBee. A soft and cuddly lovey, perfect for Charlie to snuggle. I must have rubbed it against my cheek 100 times before setting it next to the stairs to take up to Charlie's room. This was before we knew Charlie was a Charlie though. He was still potentially a Lucy. Either way, it would be any newborns favorite cuddle buddy and drool partner.
Last night when I got home from a short shift at work, there was a nice little white box waiting for me. I took it upstairs with me, sat down near the tub where Eleanore and Christopher were playing in bubbles, and tore it open with grace. SudsNSuch had sent me a perfect little gift set. A bar of handmade baby soap, wrapped up in pretty decorated paper, and 2 handmade blue washcloths. Funny that I opened it right there next to a tub full of bubbles.
