I also made the diaper cake in the center. It is not nearly as fancy and beautiful as this diaper cake my mother made for my shower...
But let's face it - I am not nearly as talented as my mother. So my simpler version will have to do!
Now I just need to make myself some of these wonderful burp cloths and then we will pretty much be set to have this little baby join our family. He really could come any day now! How exciting!

I made some for my sister-in-law who just had a darling little baby girl. And I also made a couple for one of my friends who also just had a baby girl! I absolutely love the fabric and am saving the rest to use if I ever have a little girl of my own!

Almond (or Lemon) Sugar Cookies
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. almond OR lemon extract
2 cups flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
Glaze: 1 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1/2 tsp. almond OR lemon extract, 4-5 tsp. milk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix butter, sugar and extract in a large bowl. Mix well, about 1 to 2 minutes.
Add remaining ingredients. Beat 1 to 2 more minutes. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and flatten balls to 1/4 inch thickness with the bottom of a floured glass dipped in sugar.
Bake at for 7-9 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned. I like mine almost under-baked, remember they stiffen up as they cool. Cool 1 minute.
Stir together glaze ingredients with a wire whisk. Decorate cooled cookies with glaze and sprinkles.
