Our Baby Shower

So it seems that the closer I get to baby-day, the less I am able to get done…including something as simple as a blog update. But, I do happen to be very, very busy putting up my feet and eating ice cream, so I have a decent excuse.

But, at last I would like to write about our amazing baby shower. And the bottom line is, baby got SPOILED!!! We had an amazing turnout, so many of our family and friends were able to make it, it was such a great day!

None of this would have happened if it weren’t for the amazing ladies who put it all together…my Mom, Norine, Corinne, Katie, Rach and Cass all worked like crazy to make our day special. A few other people were super helpful as well…Kris made a pretty awesome gift-bringer, Kathy helped create some of the delicious food, and Kim was our paparazzi for the day!

I can’t even begin to list all of the beautiful gifts that we received, there were dozens and dozens, but I thought I would share a few that we got that I know will make life as new parents so much easier!!

(Note: For those of you who didn't see the stroller, Don, Norine & Cassie actually bought this pressie early for us, so it's been home for a while, ha ha).

In addition to these amazing essentials, we received a few special keepsake gifts from baby’s Aunt Rach, Aunt Corinne and Uncle Kris…can you believe how gorgeous these are?

There are tons of amazing presents missing from this little list…beautiful clothes and blankets, toys, bibs….his dresser is overflowing with things!

By the end of the day, there was literally ONE item we still needed…a playard. And with all of the gift cards we received, we ordered one right away!

Again, thank you to the amazing people who organized this day for us, and to everyone who was able to join us. We are the luckiest mom-and-dad-to-be ever!!!!
