Big Sister: Makayla

Hello Friends.

Saturday I went to a baby shower for my nephew's wife, Amanda.  Curt and Amanda will welcome their second daughter, Charlotte, next month.  Their older daughter, Makayla, is 7.  

I wanted to do something special for Makayla as to make sure she didn't feel left out.  Makayla is a girlie girl so pink was definitely going to come into play.   

Shopping online didn't yield many ideas; although, I did order her a disposable camera and a photo album that said I'm the Big Sister. The next move was to go to Hobby Lobby and JoAnn Fabrics, buy some supplies and try to put something cute together for her.  The results?  A Big Sister tote bag for her to take to the hospital. 
I filled the bag with the camera and album, art supplies, Jelly Bellys, and a sports bottle.  She loved it! 

Here, Amanda and Makayla share a funny moment.  I also want to share the Diaper Cake my sister-in-law, Becki, made with my nephew, Jason's wife and sister-in-law: Amy and Jennifer. 


I will be linking this to Mosaic Monday.


  1. This is fabulous...I bet she felt like the big winner! Love this!

  2. Great idea to include big Sis La, I'm sure she was thrilled! How cute is that diaper cake, adorable topper:@)

  3. That was so thoughtful of you. So many times the older children can feel a bit left out but I can see Makayla is right in there.

  4. What a great idea...and she will always remember how thoughtful you were to remember her! The quiche in your last post looks so delish - I copied the recipe! We'll be in Marion next week to play with Carter!! Can't wait!

  5. How thoughtful of you to put together a big sister tote. I'm sure she loved it!
    Hugs, Cindy

  6. How sweet...and what fun! A perfect mosaic! Hugs! ♥

  7. Oh, how cute, La! I know she loved this!

  8. Great mosaics and what a fabulous cake. How sweet that you took something along for big sister. Looks like fun was had by all. It is not something they generally have in the UK, but my daughter is expecting her first baby ( a boy) next month and it would of been good if she had!! Looking forward to seeing a photo of your new great-niece next month.

    Love Jackie in Surrey, UK.

  9. That is the sweetest!
    Perfectly done!
    Have a wonderful week!

  10. That was so sweet of you to think of her too! Cute diaper cake. They didn't have those when I had my son.
