We’ve got less than seven weeks to go before Baby Boy Buteau makes his debut, and I was lucky enough to get ‘sprinkled’ with some much-needed necessities from family and friends over the holiday weekend.
For those who haven’t heard (believe me, I didn’t know either at first!), a baby sprinkle is a step below a baby shower.
Rather than a huge bash, the mommy can gather with her closest friends and family and receive her baby must-haves. Usually, baby sprinkles are more for women who are becoming a mom for the second time around who already had a baby shower for their firstborn.
We had a great afternoon at my house Saturday celebrating for the arrival of baby boy. We dined on fruit with cheese and crackers, yummy calzones from my best friend’s restaurant, (Tomaselli Brothers is in Cranston and sooooo delicious!), homemade hummus, homemade cookies and cupcakes! They were all perfect afternoon snacks.
You can see in the photo that even my best buddy Riley is waiting for something to drop off my plate while I chat with my friends!
I had a wonderful afternoon catching up with some people I haven’t seen in months, and I’m thankful they were able to spend some time with me to sprinkle this lucky little boy.
Some of the much needed items I received as gifts were bottle nipples, a new diaper pail, bath towels, a BundleMe for the car seat and some adorable clothes.
Looking forward to the new year! Thanks again to my mom and sister for organizing my sprinkle!
