Behind the scenes.

If you can take the sound of my high-pitched, squeaky voice for a few minutes, here are some behind the scenes details to our celebration last week.

Points to note:

0:03 – Yes, my hair is still wet.  I’m just thankful I had a shower, okay?

0:12 – Esther is a nervous wreck.

1:32 – That banner in the background was made with craft paper and Sunday Comics.  Donovan and Olivia were a great help!

2:22 – That sweater was made for Bennett by a woman who has never even met him!  Such a loved baby!

2:30 – I use a shoe rack to hang cleaning products on the laundry door.

3:29 – I might say, “There you are!” as if I don’t know where the babe has gone, but that’s what “mom ears” are for.  Trust me, I know.

4:40 – The other gift was wooden ducks on a string.

Stay tuned for some goofy shots of the picture station and perhaps a video of the babe’s reaction to being gifted a box of ziplock bags.
