DIY Baby Shower Diaper Cake with Surprise

I made this Diaper Cake way back for my sister-in-law's first child's baby shower in 2019 and never shared it! I can't believe that I never did because I was so excited with how it turned out. I love the idea of diaper cakes because they make cute shower decor while still being functional.

This one I made with an exciting twist. Traditionally people would either fill the middle with tons of rolled up diapers, baby lotion, or even baby formula, but I decided to put a bottle of my sister-in-law's favorite wine for her to find. She loved it so much and it is still one of the most talked about gifts she received. 

Classic Books for Baby Shower Gift Ideas

There is a new trend at baby showers where you give a book instead of a card. I absolutely LOVE this trend. I think it is a great to build a baby's first library and plus you can actually get use out of them instead of cards which end up sitting in a box for years.

Gender Neutral Baby Shower Gift Ideas

When husband and I got pregnant with our son, I asked him if we could wait until delivery to find out what we were having. I had heard about gender regret and didn't want that to be an issue for us. I don't know if I would have been upset if we had another girl or not. I truly think I just wanted to have a healthy baby, but I knew my husband wanted a boy. So I convinced him to wait.

My husband's cousin offered to throw us a shower because she said, "Every baby deserves to be celebrated." My mother-in-law asked me, "well what do you need? Don't you already have everything?" Good question. Because if we were having a boy, no we didn't have everything because we would need clothes. But we weren't finding out, so what do you get the couple who isn't finding out AND this isn't their first baby?

So here is a list of things that were great for us to receive, my favorite baby shower gifts in general, and hopefully they will help you with some ideas too.

Goosewaddle Review & Giveaway {Showered With Love Giveaway Hop, Ends 4/15}

I received free products from Goosewaddle to facilitate this review. I received no additional compensation. All opinions are my own.

"Every goose waddles, but only Goosewaddle swaddles."

When I received the opportunity to review the Goosewaddle Blanket and Lovie, we didn't know the sex of our sweet little boy yet, so I went with white although they offer pink and blue as well.

Goosewaddle Blankie & Lovie Review & Giveaway, End 4/15

Cute & Personalized from BabyBlankets.com

I am posting this as being a member of the Mommy Hot Spot Army of Moms through a promotion for the sponsor, all opinions are my own.

My daughter has an obsession with soft cuddly blankets, so they are my go to baby item to get for new moms. BabyBlankets.com has personalized baby boy blankets or baby girl blankets that are a cute and useful gift that every new mom can cherish.

My daughter has a thing for Elephants. It was the first animal that she knew it's sound or could recognize. Yes, an elephant. So this Elephant Lovie Blankie would be right up her alley.

Baby Boy Elephant Blankets

And it's organic? Perfect!

I am also a huge fan of these Angel Dear Animal Blankets.

Baby Boy Lovies

My sister-in-law just had a little one. She's a month old now, if you can believe it. And I absolutely love buying new things for her. And personalized baby blankets give that special touch.

Here's how the baby's doing:

I need to talk to my doctor about my swelling again. It's really worrying me. :/


Greg went as a Chippendale's Dancer and I'm the Staple's Easy Button. :)

I also found out this week that my last day of work is Nov. 19th. I'm very sad. But atleast I have something wonderful to look forward to.

6 weeks left and November is on it's way. :)

So I am very excited to announce we are officially registering tomorrow. As in, we are actually going to Target and making sure we have everything we need on the registry. I've registered for a few things online, in fact, I registered for a 4-in-1 convertible crib, two changing tables(why 2, I have no idea), a dresser, and a glider with ottoman and someone bought them! (1)My MIL got a changing table and crib with a mattress for around $150 from a consignment shop but if it turns out someone did buy the others, I'd like to keep the new ones so they can be a whole set, plus they are cherry and wouldn't match. The thing is, I have no idea who would have done such a nice and generous thing. Not saying I don't know people who would want to do something like that, it's just the combination of having the money to do it too. lol If my MIL doesn't want to keep the crib/changing table we can sell it to this up and coming consignment shop that is so cute and looking for more stuff to sell, it's called: Once Again Consignment Boutique. But we will see what to do after we have the showers. This whole idea was per my MIL, just so everyone knows.

So far we have a few things already. My MIL bought me this awesome stroller that fits the car seat my boss gave me perfectly, it's the kind of stroller that the car seat goes into but when they get older it is also a regular stroller. I think it's called a travel system. (2)We also have 8 AVENT naturally bottles my boss gave me. These sell for $12 brand new. As you can see they need new nipples. We have a swing that my boss gave us and I checked it tonight and it works!!! :] (3)We also have a ton of 0-3 month clothing that will be in season for her when she comes. I need to check out what I have for 3-6 months but I know I have a good amount of that too. I just don't know if it's in season and the condition of it. I have a car seat with two bases and a bouncer my boss gave me, baby monitors my aunt gave me, and a bassinet my MIL bought me. So I'm very excited.

(4)We have also picked out her nursery design. It's pink and brown polk-a-dots. They sell it at Babies-R-Us for $199 but we GOT it from Katia's Kloset Consignment Boutique for only $99. It's a 9 piece set which includes: Comforter, Bumper, Fitted Sheet, Skirt, 2 Window Valances, Diaper Stacker, Toy Bag, and Decorative Pillow. As you can see the crib and changing table in the picture is cherry and the paint is the same color her room already is, so everything will match PEFECTLY! :] My MIL knows the owner, that's how she found it!

I'm so grateful for everything my MIL has done for us. She has been so amazing and I don't know what I would do without her.

I'm so very excited for this baby to come and getting the nursery ready for her. I worked alot on clearing out the room for her this weekend. I think we might want to invest in a ceiling fan for that room earlier because it gets HOT working in there. I can't wait for the showers! I know my mom, sister, & aunt(in Buford) are throwing me one and my MIL & Sisters-in-law (in McDonough) are also throwing me one. If you want to come to one or the other, go over to facebook and send me message with your address letting me know which one. I don't know if my dad's side is throwing me one. I guess I'll find out Saturday at the family reunion.

I think that's about it for this post. I'll post more updates soon! :]
