When I decided to do over his office again I bought a chipboard L for the Learner dad sign. It was too small really. Luckily the babies name is Eli so I went and bought an E and I as well. I thought I would paint them up nicely and put them somewhere in his office. When people at work saw it they demanded that I put it in a frame and give it as a gift instead. So the letters came home.
On Thursday night the SA trainer and myself went shopping (with money we had collected from the other trainers) for a baby gift. We managed to find a nice plastic frame at Red dot for $7. I painted it up today so that it matched the paint on the letters. Below is my finished masterpiece and I would like to apologise to my boss that yes it is a form of scrap booking but if he throws it in the bin there is going to be trouble.
Below are the other gifts. The blue beanie bear wrapped in a blanket is specifically for my boss. He wants to know who came up with the phrase "sleeping like a baby" so he can shoot them. Anyway the SA Trainer and I told him that if you look at a sleeping baby it is peaceful so that is what the beanie bear represents.
Considering he is into exercise and health we also bought a Jolly Jumper for Eli as well as an exercise outfit that will fit him from 3 months on. It has a hooded sweat shirt, joggers, 2 pairs of matching socks, and a matching T-Shirt. There were matching shoes to but we had no money left.
The orange zebra is made of chewable, washable thick synthetic type material which I thought was just perfect for one of the many things to go in the mouth.
