- I've had countless "holy crap" moments this week in regards to the very real potential that I could pretty much have a baby any time in the next four to five weeks (or less). A real, live baby.
- Almost 35 weeks pregnant and I have sausage fingers. Legit sausage digits. Which, on my 5'7" frame, makes it look as if I have midget hands. Not only is this mega uncomfortable, but it's also super creepy.
- We have yet to put together the travel system or the pack and play or the jogging stroller and we don't even own the bassinet or swing yet. Minor details.
- I've been motivated enough to organize all of Baby Boy's clothes by size, but can't seem to find the motivation to actually venture out in the 103* heat index to buy the proper detergent to start washing his clothes. Oh and did I mention we have 57 receiving blankets, 36 pairs of socks, 45 bibs and approximately 357 0-3 month size onesies? For reals. Okay, maybe I was embellishing on the onesie count. But you catch my drift...
Regardless, here are a few pictures from my baby shower, hosted by my wonderful mother-in-law at which both Baby Boy and I were showered with endless amounts of love and some pretty sweet swag. Please note, Baby Boy's name was scattered throughout the ENTIRE shower, therefore, many pictures have been withheld from the blogosphere! These pictures include the favors, the banner, one of his THREE awesome diaper cakes, the most delicious cake I've ever eaten as well as a few of his monogrammed baby gifts.
and include a special message to him on a handmade bookmark
that was sent to each of the invitees.
just a small snapshot of an incredible clothesline full of onesies, sleep sacks, booties, bibs and more!
you can also catch a glimpse of a killer diaper wreath made by one of my dear friends
(who also made the three diaper cakes scattered throughout the shower!)
Recognize her? It's Aliya, my real life friend and superb blogger gal from The View From My Shoes!
Baby Boy is so lucky to have some incredible "aunties" in his life!
Needless to say, it was a fabulous little party filled with great friends and family, delicious food and lot's of love and laughter. I know I speak for Baby Boy when I say how incredibly blessed we are to be surrounded by such supportive, generous and loving friends and family.
