My bloggy friend, Alicia, is pregnant with her fourth baby. Due in just eight short weeks. It's always fun to have babies around the same time as your friends. It makes the bond a little deeper, a little sweeter. My heart goes out to Alicia, because while we are both seasoned Mama's, she thought she was done after her third and got rid of everything. I can't imagine having to start from the ground up, from crib to bottles to onesies. Everything.

So! How sweet is it that another bloggy (and real life) friend, Becky, rounded some of us gals together to honor Alicia in an online bloggy baby shower! To help prepare her for this baby and bless her socks off. Sweetest idea ever.

The gender of Alicia's baby is a surprise, and she is referring to it as her "Spring Chick". So naturally, if I could carry out Alicia's shower in real life, it would look something like this:

Spring and babies might just be two of my favorite things. And together? Make my heart swoon, why dontchya.

Of course you have to have treats at a shower! These would be a must.

Today I sent off a package for Alicia, with some sweet little items to help her prepare for Spring Chick. But I like surprises, so I didn't take any photos of what I sent. Sorry Alicia. You'll just have to wait for the mail man :)

Here's one little sneak peek though of something I made...

And I can't let you all leave without a parting gift, so here you go!

Head on over to Becky's blog to see what the others are doing for their online baby shower, and check out Alicia's blog here!
