Over the past week I feel like we have been SPOILED by everyone around us! I know that it is Rowynn who is being spoiled but since he isn't here to appreciate it yet, I'll take it as we are getting spoiled!

On Friday, my neighbor brought over this:
It was a Mickey themed diaper cake to go with his Mickey themed room! Plus, they brought a warmer that towels and clothes can be put in so when he done with a bath he can have a warm towel to snuggle with.

Then, Saturday morning there was a knock on the door and it was our mail lady with two packages. Inside the first was this:

I ordered this nursing cover on when a friend emailed me with the coupon code "thanks" to get the cover for $8.95 which is just the price of shipping! That was a $40 savings. So, if you know someone who is breastfeeding or will be, this is a great buy.

The second package had the rest of my mom's gifts for Rowynn. She sent us a Pack n' Play, sheet, snuzzler (which keeps a new born from wobbling around in the car seat while they are so tiny), a bundle me (which keeps baby warm in the cold weather without the need for a jacket) and our second car shade for the window.

I hope Rowynn knows how lucky, loved and spoiled he is! I'm sure it is only going to get worse too. Yikes! That's a scary thought.

At the baby shower, my host Katie, made me this:

I had forgotten to put it in my shower post and I wanted to show off her handy work. It will be sad to take apart both of the cakes that we have had made for us. But, when a poopy diaper is needing a change... I guess I will have to suck it up and tear it down.

Then, last night (and all day yesterday) my amazing husband continued his work in Rowynn's room. He finished putting down the floor in his closet and he hung the pictures and letters for me. If I do say so myself, I think it turned out FANTASTIC!

So, it goes without saying, we have been super spoiled by our friends and family over the past week. Thank you everyone for everything. You have really helped us prepare for the arrival of our little blessing and we can't thank you enough.

Also, I have been so spoiled by my husband. He has worked so hard over the past few months preparing our house and working on some big projects. Now, he is doing his best to help out around the house and it is so appreciated. I am one very lucky lady and I love my husband so very much. I have a very blessed life. I am blessed with an amazing husband, wonderful family and incredible friends. I am bursting at the seams with love (no, it isn't Rowynn trying to push his way out!).

Love the nursery. Mickey Mouse is my favorite. So cute.

And I ordered my uddercover as well. Thanks for the info.
