Her daddy took this next picture and sent it to me to thank me for doing some grocery shopping for them. I have it as my external wallpaper on my phone now. It looks like she is trying to talk. She does squeak though. I almost forgot about those cute sounds babies make when they are so young.
Just as content as could be in her other Grammy's arms. This baby is very loved!
Liliana, Grammy Linda and grampy David love you right up to the moon and back!
Now for the title of my post. Assembly required. Those two words are feared by parents (and grandparents) across the globe. It is another thing I almost forgot about babies - assembly required. LOL It came right back to me today though. Instead of prim shopping, I did something even more fun - yes MORE fun than prims. I went shopping for my sweet Liliana. I was in search of a portable crib so that we have a comfy place for Liliana when she spends time at Grammy and Grampy's. I was just amazed at the new versions these days. Gone are those old wooden slated ones. So many styles and colors to choose from and some of them are so elaborate! And the colors and patterns. I settled for this convertible version.
It took me awhile but I got it all together. What amazes me is that for something with 10 billion safety warnings, they don't make the assembly instructions very clear. Not the words or the drawings! And I am the queen of visual stuff but they had even me stumped for awhile. If it needs to be put together just soin order to be safe, then make the instruction more clear Graco!!
Right now the bed is up high like a bassinet and later I can move it down to safer level when Liliana gets more active. It can be used as a playpen as well.
And it has this neat changing table built in too. I don't know how practical it will be when she is older, but it will work for now. I am sure this is old hat to many of my followers who are parents and grandparents but I was just amazed !! I wanted one of everything!
She made them all these gorgeous had stamped thank you cards. This one on top is my favorite! Isn't that stamp adorable?
Each one is different and so detailed!
Jenn has her own blog, Stampin Angel Jenn, so named because she too angels patients with cancer. In fact that is how we met and became friends. Stop by her blog and see some of her other card creations. And Jenn is a Stampin Up Demonstrator if you need any Stampin Up supplies, just holler. She is cool - she doesn't hound you like some other demonstrators do!
Until Next Time - Hugs, Grammy Linda
