I have a memory of his tiny little hand wrapping around my finger as I led him around the house, learning how to walk. I was 5 or 6. And now in a few months he'll have his own little life to care for and love!

We got many of our printables and inspiration off of this and this website, and went to Etsy for the library card invite.

We played a few fun games: one was to test knowledge of the names of classic children's books, and the other was a fun interactive poem read out loud, giving directions on passing a small wrapped gift to the ladies who fit the description given. Because a lot of the ladies didn't know eachother, this was a fun icebreaker.
My very creative and talented sis-in-law came up with the idea of doing a candy bar as a gift for the guests to take home. We adorned the little bags with Golden Book stickers and then they got filled with blue and yellow classic candies to take home.
A banner was fabricated very easily out of old Golden Book pages.
Antique and vintage toys decorated the space.
I had so much fun celebrating the upcoming new life to join our family!
