Gifts, gifts and more gifts!

This is Katy.  Aaron and I are in Bowling Green, Ohio this week spending Thanksgiving with his family.  And boy have we been showered with gifts!  The biggest and best is this cradle.  You can’t see it very well because it is covered in gifts.  This cradle was made by Aaron’s dad’s grandpa for Aaron when he was a baby.  His name was Harry Raymond from Guy’s (Aaron’s Dad) mom’s side of the family.  So it was Aaron’s Great Grandpa and he would be Zimmerbaby’s Great Great Grandpa.  Pretty cool huh?  It is beautiful and is in great shape.  It was used for Aaron, both of his sisters and a few cousins as well.  I’m sure it will hold many more Zimmerbaby’s in they years ahead.

As you can see it is loaded with all kinds of fun stuff.  There are several blankets made for Aaron as as baby from grandmother’s and friends.  Clothes Aaron wore as a baby and toddler and other goodies too.  I’ve pulled a few favorites out in pictures below.


This is Aaron’s first Teddy Bear.

 This is a sweater knitted by Aaron’s Grandma Zimmerman for him as a baby.  It was his favorite thing in the lot.  Best part, it zips up the back!

This is Aaron’s first Michigan t-shirt.  It is so cute! Doesn’t it just scream the 80’s?

These are knitted gifts from Janet, Aaron’s mom.  A toy ball and snowman cap.  Adorable.

 Janet also made these little socks.  You can’t tell from this picture but they are quite small.  It is so hard to imagine that in about 6 months there will be little feet to fill these socks.


Thank you so much for all of the new and nostalgic gifts.  We love them and are immensly grateful.

  1. WOW what a stash! Fantastic!

    All of these will come in quite handy I’m sure. Now if you can just keep Plato out of the cradle. HA!

    Best to all up north. Is it snowing?

    Love to all.
