Baby Shower

We had our baby shower on Saturday evening. After all the drama about it earlier and me getting all upset with not being included it turns out I was all worked up over nothing.  My sister and friends did a fantastic job and it was perfect.

We ended up having a co-ed shower with about 25 people. Perfect. Not a huge crowd, very laid back, and exactly what I wanted. It was at my old roommate's house, there was beer and wine for the others, some great appetizers, pasta and salad for dinner, and a fantastic cake.  My niece, Kayleigh, who is 3 years old helped me unwrap the presents and had a blast doing it.

My sister has all the pictures on her camera and she is taking her good ol' sweet time posting them, so I don't have much to show here from the party.  I do have these, though:

The diaper cake that my work friend made. So cute - and it smells like baby  :)

One of the games. Guess when he will arrive and the winner gets a $50 giftcard to Applebee's.  Any dates that weren't filled in we get. So I guess if I want a free dinner I have to hope for an early arrival.

Guess the baby's weight.  My old roommate, Joe, picked the >10 lb guess.  If that's the case he better use that $50 Outback giftcard to take me out to dinner - I'll deserve it!

Stack of gifts back at our house.  The big box on the bottom right is our glider.  I still can't believe my sister bought that for us. I only put it on the registry to use the completion discount.  I am beyond grateful for her generosity.  There is also our pack n play, highchair, travel swing, a carton of diapers, and a carton of wipes in the picture.

More baby loot stacked in our office.  Some of this was stuff we'd already gotten, but all the bags are full of stuff.  I was overwhelmed by the generosity of our families and friends.

All his clothes that I got out and arranged by sizes.   

So far we have:
19 3-6 month onesies
20 6-9 month onesies
4 newborn size onesies
7 3-6 month sleepers
9 6 month size pants
8 3 month size pants
13 bibs

I think I need to pick up some 0-3 month onesies, but we are well on our way with the clothes.

There are some necessities that we're still going to have to go get, but we did get a lot of great gifts.

All in all it was a great celebration of Baby W - he is already so loved by everyone and it makes me so happy  :)


  1. Glad your shower went so well :) Looks like you got a bunch of great stuff!

  2. holy cow! major loot! :) Happy Monday hon!
