After seeing these highchairs featured at many first birthdays and across Pinterest and blog land, I decided to take the highchair I'd registered for off my registry and start hunting for an old wooden Jenny Lind. I ended up finding one locally on Craig's List for about $50. I've gotten safe paint (in BM Hydrangea Blue) and a food safe sealer and plan to work on it during maternity leave (not that the little guy will need it for a while). Has anyone tackled this project? Any advice? I plan to use this as my everyday highchair, not just for birthdays. I want to find a new strap because that part of it being old really grosses me out.
I'll report back once I complete it!
Last Thursday evening, we were blessed with another fun baby shower. My mother-in-law, Jean, graciously open her lovely home and invited family and some of her friends and neighbors over to celebrate Baby Otto. It was a wonderful evening -- this baby is spoiled already!
(I wish I'd taken more pictures, but here are a few)
The delicious cake from Edible Art matched the invitation (from Charlotte's)

Thanks to all the ladies who came that night! I feel very blessed.
I promise not every post will be about babies, but maybe writing about it again tonight (after being a slack blogger!) will get him to come on out. The spicy food, pineapple, walking, etc. don't seem to be working...
