Here are pictures that my Aunt Mary took at the baby shower. The only way to view them is via the Kodak website. Enjoy them!
The shower was amazing. Andrea (my sister in law) and Katie (who is due 2 weeks right after me) threw me an amazing shower. Many work friends came, my cousin Christy, my Aunt Mary, my BFF Liz and her bf Mikey were all there. There was lots of yummy food and a really cute cake. Everyone decorated bibs for Gumbo. We played games: baby scattegories and a memory game. Then we opened presents. Gumbo got lots of really cute clothes, bath supplies, toys, bedding, changing supplies, a stroller, and so much other fun stuff! His mommy got some lotions and things to help her with breastfeeding. After the presents, we all hung out for a few hours. I showed everyone the house and the baby room.
We are so excited to have this little baby. He is so darling. I know he is going to be super cuddly because he is always rubbing out on my belly (either that or he is running out of room!) I am 8 1/2 months this week! EEK! He could come in 2 weeks and not need any extra hospital care. So, we will have a baby between the next 2 weeks and 2 months.
I think the most cool parts were that Aunt Mary flew down from New Hampshire and came with my cousin Christy. The other really cool part was that Liz and Mikey rented a car and came up for the shower. They completely missed it, but thats ok because we had a ton of fun after the party was over. Liz, Mikey, Mary, Christy and I went out to eat and had a great time.
You might be wondering, "Where was Tom?" Well, Tom was there for the first part, he went to work for a little bit and then he hung out with Jake (Andrea's hubby) and Sophia (Andrea's baby) and watched football!
Right now he is in Nashville doing some work things. He is going to visit our friend Maria while he is there. In the meantime, I'm hanging at the house and washing baby clothes! yay!
