I'm glad you got it and liked it! I wish I had known ahead of time that you were having a girl so I could have given you more girly stuff! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
I love this swap thing- it's so much fun to read what people get!

Amy, I suck so bad. I couldn't get out of work early enough to get to P.O. before they closed. Fortunately, the one by my house is open tomorrow so I'll be first in line when they open in the morning.

It's OK! I am actually leaving Monday for a week, so you can totally take your time; I won't be able to get it til the 28th anyway! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"> It'll give me something to look forward to when I come home. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Received my package today! I love it, its just what I wanted. I received a knitted hat and a LTK knitted soaker from Rachel (beachbaby). Its the first things bought/made exclusively for this baby. It is so special. And I have been having an awful, awful day, really depressed about DS and his issues, so I needed a boost. Thanks Rachel for the wonderful gift, thanks Amy for coordinating this and thanks to everyone who signed up so we could do it!<br><br>
(Is it bad I am already looking forward to the 3rd Trimester just so we can swap again? :LOL )<br><br>
PS: I'll try to post a pic later.

Oh, good, Jenn! I'm glad it made it to you safe and sound!<br><br>
Forgot to say in my note that the soaker hasn't been lanolized yet and that if it's too small (it looks sooo tiny to me & I have guage issues when it comes to knitting :LOL ) I can make you another in a bigger size.<br><br>
I'm ready for another swap already, too! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Amy your package got mailed priority on Saturday and they said it will be there today or tomorrow. I guess I could have used the cheaper method huh? :LOL

Aw Ashe, sorry I didn't tell you earlier. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">: Well that'd be sweet if it got here today. We're not leaving til 4:30 and the mail comes around noon, so I'll keep my fingers crossed.<br><br>
I'm so glad we did this too!

Ashe - I got it today!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"> Surprises in the mail are so fun!<br><br>
I am in HEAVEN with all of the good smells I will be able to put on my body (especially in Texas where I'm sure I will be a major candidate for B.O. :LOL ) - Ashe sent me body wash, moisturizer, and body spray in my favorite scent (mint)! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
I also got some side-snap shirts for the baby, which is very fun since we have so little baby stuff yet. And those little baby clothes are so cute, I just can't wait to see my *actual* baby in them!<br><br>
Thanks Ashe! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

I love the little side snap shirts. And you asked for the mint lotion but I splurged and got all three.<br><br>
And then I almost bought you half the girly smell good aisle while I was at it. :LOL

I got my package from Sara (Snugglebutter) today!! And to think, I thought it was my husband's "foam gun" that he's been waiting for!! :LOL I was so happy it was for me!!<br><br>
Inside my box I found what looks like a hand-stamped card! I love those! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I also found 2 Prowraps, one NB size and one SM, 3 prefolds, a Snappi, some diaper pins and a Wonderoos diaper with a nice fluffy insert!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> I also got a copy of The Nursing Mother's Companion which is my personal breastfeeding bible!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/luxlove.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="throb"><br><br>
The diapers look so *tiny* and it's hard to imagine that there will be a little set of biscuits tucked inside of them in a few months!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nut.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nut"><br><br>
I can't thank you enough, Sara!! You really made my day!!

I got my package and I love it! The maternity shirt not only fits perfectly but it is a lovely shade of pink and I look almost cute in it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/winky.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Wink"><br><br>
I can't believe you made the gown and hat, they are so freaking cute. For those of you who have not seen them - it is this cute yellow print with pretty blue stripes and tiny little teddy bear heads on the gown, and a matching yellow hat with an appliqued teddy face! So cute, and so well made. If only I could sew. Sigh... at least I can knit!<br><br>
The Weleda products are exactly what I wanted and now this babe will smell very sweet and have very happy skin smelling like calendula.<br><br>
Thank you thank you, - and by the way, I live in Watkinsville, right near Athens, I'm not sure where you are located, but I would love to get together sometime.<br><br>
Thanks again BensMom!<br><br>
- Sarah
