During this time, without knowing my struggles, Doing My Best sent me the most perfect CDP. It was full of individually wrapped gifts to open on particularly tough days (and brownie mix to bake as needed). She is just THAT thoughtful. I'd like to show you the awesomeness it contained in the hopes that you'll be able to spread the love on to someone else who is struggling in the form of a CDP when they most need it.
The first package contained these dinosaur themed burp cloths! I love the way she crocheted the edging!
The next gift was a whole slew of cloth breastfeeding pads. I was definitely looking forward to nursing D and anything re-usable is perfect for us! These are made with 3 layers of fun printed flannel on one side and super soft and absorbent fleece on the other. This picture doesn't showcase all of the pads, but the rest are currently in the wash.
The final and best gift was this GORGEOUS blanket that she crocheted!
There is little heart details on each square and it's rainbow, but still boyish enough to be for D. I love, love, love this. My heart is so thankful every time I think about how long this must have taken her, how she worked on it for someone she "met" through blogging, how sweet it was of her to make for us.
Thank you for allowing me to introduce you to my talented and generous friend who made the last few weeks of my pregnancy more tolerable. Now, let's all go bother her to post tutorials for all of these handmade gifts!
