Baby-Man’s Baby Showers

Posted on

Do you ever have those moments when you realize that there are some really amazing, good-hearted, and special people in your life?

What about a moment when you look around you and realize that you are truly lucky, and — dare I say it — blessed?

I have been so fortunate to have not one, but TWO baby showers thrown for me in the past few weeks. After each one, as soon as I returned home, I had a little happy-cry in my bedroom because of the beautiful people that made me feel so special and loved. (Maybe hormones and feeling semi-overwhelmed played a part too…) I’m so lucky to have such an amazing family and group of friends who support me, Brice, and our little Wiggle-munch.

 

The first shower was at school — Aunties Karen, Amanda, Joanne, and Jolene came together to show Baby-Man some love…

My mother and sister, Cara, were also there for the shower — and they had a little bit of fun on my whiteboard after it was all over…

I’m so bummed that I can’t upload videos to this site — Auntie Jolene made the most beautiful owl quilt for Baby-Man. I definitely cried while opening it (just as Auntie Amanda  predicted I would). Auto Karen did an amazing job decorating her room and putting little owl trinkets out for us to decorate Baby-Man’s space. After everything was in the car, I couldn’t quite make it home before the tears started flowing. Many, many thanks to the beautiful women at school for their support and love.

 

Two weeks later, my cousin, Lauren, a new mama herself, threw me another shower. This time, my mother and Cara were there along with Brice’s mother, Karen, and his Aunt Cyndi, along with many other family members and friends! I had a hard time keeping the tears back when I looked out at everyone, and only kept it together when I started to think about how my mascara would run ALL over my face.

There are more pictures to come, but here’s a few…

Can’t wait for those little feet to play that equally little piano from Maureen!

This bag was a huge hit — I loved the onesies inside!

Because yes.

Sweetest sun-hat ever. Aunt Irene and Cousin Corinne know that Baby-Man doesn’t stand a chance in the sun… 😉

Brice and I feel like we’ve surrounded ourselves with some of the most amazing people in the world. We love y’all.
