Tea time and Nervous Energy....



Meghan shared with me that you "Shower" a first time Mom,
and you "Sprinkle" Mom for babies after that.

I think it is a great tradition....
and we all shared in the joy and the love.


You can read all about it on Meghan's Blog here....
and Jill's sweet version here....
Our High Tea at the Aviara did not disappoint!!!!

There were wonderful goodies to enjoy...
and the most delightful ( and relaxed) conversations.

Relaxing is not something I am good at
while waiting for our sweet Grandbaby Number Three.


So I took my nervous energy in a positive direction....
sewing dresses for the Big Sister to be!!!!

This one seemed fresh and lively...just like Clare.

We all agree that this color
with her strawberry blonde hair will make it a hit!!!



Then there is this simple frock....


What is summer without pink whales????



But this will probably be my sweet Miss's favorite.
It is not about the style....



It is all about the MOUSE!!!!



So we try to be patient for these next days ahead.

I remember the days when I dreamed of what it would be like to be an Oma.

All I can say is....dream the dream and times it by a thousand,
and you might be somewhat close!!!!

Yes indeed, you are a blessed mom and grandma! The pictures truly show the wonderful time all of you had at the "sprinkle." I love the term..I also love the dresses you made for the big sister. Would you be willing to share the name of the pattern?
