My sweet MIL offered to host a little sprinkle in honor of baby Fletcher a few months ago and last weekend was the big event. We invited close family and friends and had a wonderful time. I can't wait to share all the details with you so let's start with the invitation:
Invitations from Doodlebug and Peep etsy shop
I LOVED the unique designs in this shop and the owner was quick, personable and so great to work with. I'll definitely be using this shop again in the future.

My MIL planned a delicious brunch menu and asked for a few people to bring yummy things.
The food was amazing!!
I made chocolate covered pretzel favors and will go into more detail about those tomorrow.
We ate, visited, enjoyed dessert and opened gifts.
No games, just kept things simple.
My MIL's living room is a pretty great spot to gather.
We got so many cute boy things - personalized, handmade and super thoughtful gifts.
Kevin and Olive came half way through the Sprinkle.
They were just in time to help open gifts.
Olive had fun helping me and claimed a few things for herself.
Our family of almost four :)
The cake was delicious :)
Mommy + Fletcher at 34 weeks
Big sister got a bouquet of balloons and she was thrilled.
She went on to try to convince everyone that it was her birthday.
Just 3 months early on that one :)
My SIL made that cute yellow bucket with Fletcher's name on it,
my sister has been busy sewing her heart out to make the banner, shoes, alphabet and F cookies,
Kevin's nana made the blanket and booties
and so many other sweet things from sweet ladies!
*Thanks to my sister for photographing the whole event for me :) *
The preparation for baby number 2 feels very different than it did for Olive. We've got all the basics and are just needing boy things, fun things for his nursery and boy toys. We are not trying to gather all the things and feel as prepared as you can be to add another person to your family. We feel like we have an idea of what to expect although we realize that every baby is different. We're excited to be just a few weeks away from meeting Fletcher!!
