Easter book and shower gift ideas

Harper and I were reading yesterday and came across a great book that her Mimi gave her:  A for Angels.  The illustrations and verse make for such a beautiful book.  It would be a GREAT addition to any Easter basket (except Harper's because she already has it).  You can preview it here:

I need to find a good book for Harper's Easter basket-any ideas?

Harper loves to sit in our bed and read.  

Also, my sweet neighbors took me out to dinner on Monday for a baby "sprinkle."  They gave me a gift bag with a list of dates and times that they'll be coming over to babysit.  There are about 20 dates from April to June that they'll be coming over for a couple of hours during the day to help me.  That is so sweet-and such a great idea!  Brian and I live so far from family that this is JUST what we needed.  

We've had an interesting week of hernia pain that we'll have to deal with after the c-section heals, sewage leaking under and damaging the hardwood floors, cancer removal for Georgia (she's going to be just fine), my hair dryer catching on fire, and a nasty cold.  So, I don't have much to post and I haven't taken many pictures.  I'm just ready for Miss Kate to be here!  I'm HUGE HUGE HUGE and just so ready to see and hold my baby girl!  Have a great weekend!


  1. What a crazy week! I hope everything settles down this last week before Kate gets here. I hope you are feeling better too. I do have an idea for a book for Harper... the Amelia Bedelia books. I loved those as a little girl. They are too funny. Thinking about you often.

  2. So excited for you all, sweet girl. I sure do wish I lived close by so I could come over and help you with Harper. Can't wait to see pics. love you.
