Midweek Blues: Blue Is For Boys

Most of you who read my blog regularly know that Hubs and I are awaiting the birth of our third grandchild. Our son and daughter-in-law are expecting their first child in November - a boy!
Over the weekend we all got together to attend my nephew's wedding. 'Grandma' had to have a present or two to give the mom and dad to be. The baby's room will have a little monkey motif.
I was excited when I found the bag above. It went perfectly with the gifts I had purchased. The little monkey hanging on the bag is a rattle. The rattle and bag match so well you wouldn't know I purchased them in different stores in different states.
This little smiling face with the little blue bow tied around his neck greeted the recipients when they opened the bag.
When you press his tummy he plays a little lullaby. His little blue clip lets you take him along and hang him from bed, car seat, or stroller.
Little gifts make us ooh and ahh but we can hardly wait for the little one to arrive!
For more Midweek Blues join Rebecca here.

I wonder if there is any chance Grandma will spoil this little boy once he arrives? She's certainly given him a cute gift here!

We are sitting in the same boat ! I will become grandma for the first time also in November my son and wife are also expecting a little boy !! I have bought already a few clothes, and and other little things and for here a foldable bed and a little relax chair.
I probably won't see them before the birth, but they send me belly pictures, lol !

It's nice that you'll get to experience a grandchild of the opposite sex now. The monkey theme is very popular. My niece is pregnant and her baby shower was last weekend. She received a lot of baby clothes with monkeys on them. (She's having a boy, too.)
