Now that the dust has settled a bit…or more accurately, like we’re just in the eye of the storm for a few days…I thought I’d finally share an update on my long awaited baby shower!
My mother worked so hard to make my day extra special, and it was everything I could have dreamed of. Friends, family, good food, a delicious cake…and even some mimosas! 😉
Here are some photos of our big day:
Me, amidst all the loot 🙂
My mom and I, measuring for the "guess how big the belly is" game.
The person who came closest at every table won a gift card (and if there was an over/under tie, the person who guessed under won)! 😉
Me and my cousin (who was almost a week overdue and went into labor that night!)
Me and my grandfather, trying to hug with our bellies in the way 😉
Another shot with my Grampy
Some of my besties
The yummy cake - two layers, chocolate and vanilla - a preggo's dream!
Our guest book/frame - people signed in blue or pink to guess boy or girl!
Scary belly shot 😉
Me, my mom, and my aunts
With my brothers' girlfriends
All in all, it was more than I could have dreamed of…but also completely overwhelming and exhausting. 😉 But it is definitely a day I will never forget, and that I feel so grateful to have had the chance to experience. I felt so loved and our little one is already a very lucky boy. 😀
