My sister Leah is due October 27 with her fourth baby.
Some of my attendees–I’m so glad so many of my wonderful friends could be here today.
above: Nicole, Robbie (who even thought to bring a little something for the big sisters! I never would have thought of that… ) Jenni, Chris (who I’ve been pregnant with twice–her youngest two are pretty much exactly the same age as mine), Tara(who is due the week after me) and Tricia
below: Aviana (who heard there would be presents and begged to come, even though halfway through started whining about how tired she was- is sitting on Grandma’s lap, but she got cut out of the frame, largely due to my camera acting funky today –it’s literally growling at me!) Leah, Pam, Elizabeth, Anne-Marie, and Connie, my sister-in-law
Tara (you can kindof see her belly)Jamie, Ruth, Leah, Dee and moi
Beginning the opening of the gifts–you don’t realize what a dork you are until you see candid pictures of yourself opening gifts! (Case in point…)
The blanket is REALLY soft, ok?
A Moses basket for the baby’s naps–great recommendation from Andie I can bring him to the center of all the action and hopefully teach him to sleep through it all.
We had a purse scavenger hunt. Kevin’s sister Connie won because in the tiebreaker she had twelve lipsticks in her purse! (Can you beat that?)
Snack cups Ruth folded from paper napkins. Is she an origami queen or what?
Growing up she said they called these nut cups. Hmmm…wonder why they changed it to snack cups? 😉
The diaper cake
A huge thank you to everyone who was part of today!
I think everyone had a terrific time–I certainly did! And Baby C is pretty well stocked on clothes now!
Oh and speaking of Baby C…We discovered a new name that is not even on the poll! I think we might go with it. Kevin still doesn’t want me to tell what it is until after he’s born. We gotta have one surprise, he says.
‘Member how we’re so different? Yeah, keeping this a secret is pretty much akin to letting me die a slow and painful death.
I still want to get some nursing tanks and maybe try a new kind of sling, but overall I think we’re pretty much set… We have our birthing tub. We have our birthing kit. We have diapers. I have my boobs.
Do you hear that Baby? Come out, come out!
