Bib and Burp Giveaway


It's Giveaway Day! I am participating in Sew, Mama, Sew's Giveaway Day. I am offering a pink and brown bib and burp set. Both are backed with pink chenille and the bib has a Velcro closure.
I am willing to ship internationally. The colors look washed out since I took the photo at night with a flash. It is cuter in person!
To win, leave a comment on this post telling why Henry the Fifth has a pacemaker. (hint: check here.) Be sure to leave a way for me to contact you, either by email or thru your own website. I do not SPAM, nor will I forward a bunch of annoying emails to you.
The winner will be picked from among the correct answers using a random number calculator.

i love the burp cloth! I'm guessing henry needs a pacemaker becuase if ther wasnt something to help slow his pace, he'd run all over the place and drive you mad with his cuteness.

That was amazing to read about! He needed a pacemaker because he had a Heart Block after heart surgery.

These items are so cute!

It is used to alert you when the heart skips a beat or doesn't beat in time. Glad to see that Henry is so well and happy now.
And have to comment that, the bib and burp cloth have lovely colour combination. Love them.

What a sweet baby and what an amazing story - that Henry's broken heart was fixed with a pacemaker. Best wishes!

Linda and Greg said...

I love these--they are so cute!

Henry has a pacemaker because of his heart defect and surgery is my best guess.

I'd love to win!

He has the pacemaker because he has something called a Heart Block.

I was reading that post and actually forgot I was reading it to answer a question. Partly because that little Henry is so cute and partly because it's an amazing story. I'm hoping for continued good health for Henry V.

Henry has a pacemaker because he was born with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot. My daughter had heart surgery in May of 07 to correct a double aortic arch.

Valerie said...

Wow! You've been through so much, I couldn't imagine having to see my baby in pain. We've had our close calls though so I do know what it feels like when you wonder if you've lost the most important person in the world. Lucky for us, we didn't. God has a bigger plan.

Henry needed a pacemaker due to arrhythmia called heart block. Glad to hear that he is doing better! What a cutie!

I find that having children definitely drives you closer to God. We almost lost our 2nd child due to breathing difficulties.

The Giveaway Diva said...

DangAndBlast! said...

Because of arrhythmia? And they're lovely items :)

emerzim said...

His pacemaker keeps his heart beat on track. I'm rooting for Henry! I had a VSD repair when I was a tiny tot too.

Paula said...

Sweet baby! He has Tetralogy of Fallot. A friend of ours had something very similar this past spring and had surgery to repair it. I wanted to give blood in preparation for her surgery, we have the same blood type, but once again...as always, I was anemic!

:^( But, it's all about the sweet baby, and she's going well. Hope little Henry is too!

Katie said...

Wow, I know now why Henry has a pacemaker. Tetralogy of Fallot. Crazy.

I love the bib and burp set, adorable.

Kali said...

I'd love to enter your contest. Thanks for your generosity.

Sincerely,

Moira-Lin said...

Those are so cute! What an amazing story. Baby Henry the Fifth was born with a heart defect called Tetralogy of Fallot.

Last Word said...

Henry had surgery to correct a murmur, but resulted in aryhtmea - irregular rhythum...I can'at spell, but I'm sure glad he's doing better, cute little man.

Wendy said...

The set is beautiful!!

{He need a pacemaker because he developed an arrhythmia called Heart Block and needs it to pace the beat of his heart. Praise God the surgery was successful! I have a friend whose daughter was born with basically half of a working heart. After 8 months we lost her, two months ago.}

Awesome fabrics! I would love to win.

Jenn said...

An amazing story and a more amazing little boy. He has a pacemaker due to Heart Block. I hope he continues to be so happy and healthy!

Your set is adorable!

indywriter said...

Wow! You've had a lot to deal with in his short (but sure to be long) life. I had not heard of the Tetralogy of Fallot defect. After heart surgery the last thing you needed to have was a complication like a heart block and another surgery to implant a pacemaker. God is watching your little boy (and his lucky parents).

God bless your family at this special time of year!

Alexis said...

Henry 5 had a rare arrhythymia. :(

Ali said...

A pacemaker on Valentines to fix a broken heart. What a beautiful story! I can't imagine how hard that was to go through.

What a sweet little man and an amazing story. Little Henry needs a pacemaker due to a heart block.

Fidget said...

Tetralogy of Fallot surgery didnt quite go teh way it was expected to so he needed a pacemaker.

Bless you for being so strong. I dont know how you handled all of that. I nearly melted with grief and fear when my baby was in the transition nursery for 3 days

Josh and Kelley's family said...

wow arrythmia after surgery...gosh talk about mommy stress...glad he seems to be doing so well.

Love the bib and burp cloth :)
