Baby McClane is almost here!

Julie and I have been friends since the first grade (side note - I wonder if my Lacie has a friend now that she will still be friends with 22 years from now? hmmm), we (and another gal - Kendra) were best friends from junior high through highschool.
Sorry girls I couldn't resist! hahaha
We always said I would be the first to get married and have kids cause it's all I ever wanted! :) I was married in 2000 and done having kids by 2003 LOL Then it was Kendra's turned - she was married to Skyler in 2005 and has a one year old lil girl named Ruby. Julie got married to Grant in 2006 and is now due with a lil boy, McClane, on Thanksgiving Day.
They are doing a jungle themed nursery and I lucked upon some REALLY cute monkey kitchen accessories on clearance at Target awhile back - gotta love those lil red stickers. I just knew I could come up with something to use em for!I ended up making her, well the baby, a blanket, a dipee & wipee case, and a taggie.

Here are pictures from her shower and of the gifts I made:

Showing off the taggie I made


Here's the quilt - the middle applique is actually half of a tea towel found at Target!


And here's the matching taggie


And her's the dipee & wipee case - the monkey face is actually a potholder from target :)


I also gave her 2 terry cloth hand towels from Target that had the lil monkey on them. I figured she could use them as changing pads or burp cloths! Oh and inside the dipee & wipee case was a lil travel wipee box that I put McClane's name on. Cursing myself for not getting a piture of it! It was simple but really cute :)
