Last weekend I had my first baby shower! It was thrown by my aunts and some of my favorite friends. They went with a book theme, which I loved because I am such a reader and I am hoping that this little boy will be too :) I'm also not a really intense theme-y person so this felt like the perfect fit.
The food was arranged with a little bit of a theme (look at those green eggs!) and was amazing. Shower-food usually isn't known for being incredible, but this food was. My aunts made nearly everything and it was seriously so good. Also, brunch food is my favorite food category, ever. The fact that I can't stop talking about the food right now is probably a really good indication of my appetite lately.
P.S. for anyone local, check out the baker who did the cookies!
It was so sweet to read through all of the sweet messages left my friends and family!
My beautiful aunts and my mom.
Both my mom and Eric's mom kept a 1-year calendar and a detailed baby book that actually look really similar to each other. It has been really fun reading through and comparing when we took our first steps, had our first haircuts, etc.
Best baby shower game ever. Now I have a huge stack of weird pictures combining Eric and my face... I'm thinking creepy nursery decor?
The pretty, lovely, wonderful hostesses. Love you!
The guests played "present bingo" while I opened gifts, which was probably nice since watching people open gifts can get old.
How cute is this silver rattle that my grandmother got me?
My mother-in-law and my mom - they are both incredible women. I can't believe my son will have them as grandmothers!
The shower was absolutely beautiful and I felt so blessed by it. I know I said it before, but the fact that so many people would come to celebrate me and this baby was humbling. I am so honored by the time and effort that was put into the shower by people that I love. Now that our guest room is full of baby things, everything is starting to feel much more real. I am so excited to meet this baby!
