Running a few months behind on this blog, but still some cute cakes to highlight and some even cuter babies!
The week of my wedding in June 2011, my former roommate and bridesmaid Courtney told me that her and her husband Todd were expecting! I was absolutely thrilled for the two of them and couldn't wait for all the baby details. Courtney was just a few weeks along at the time but her approximate due date was middle of February 2012.
It wasn't more than 2 months later when I found out that I myself was expecting and Courtney was one of the first people I told. We shared many months of baby names, pregnancy drama and preparations for our little nuggets.
I helped 2 of Courtney's highschool classmates host a baby shower for her in early December and we went with the same jungle animal theme that Courtney had selected for her nursery. By this time, she had announced that she was having a boy and that Todd was so excited!
I decided to build her diaper cake for her shower to act as a centerpiece for her shower as well as tie into her nursery theme. Jungle themes are just perfect for boy or girl babies and I loved adding the details to this "Wild Cake."

Courtney weeks later threw me a baby shower with the help of two of my highschool classmates in January 2012.
Little did we know that baby Poehlman wanted to make an early debut and sent Courtney into early labor at just a few days shy of 37 weeks.
Jaxson Philip Poehlman was born on January 27, 2011 and is home doing great! I snuggled that little man just this week and Stewart Little is already itching to get outta my belly to meet him. Kicked him several times in his tushy while I was holding him to let him know who is boss!
I cannot wait for the two of them to grow up together and for Courtney and I to continue our friendship over the years. Love you all!
