I’ve been sitting here staring at a blank screen for like 10 minutes. I’m trying to recap my shower, but I don’t even know where to start. I think yesterday was the most emotional day for me in the 7 months and 1 week I’ve been pregnant. (I think. Then again, telling my mom and sister I was pregnant was pretty emotional.) This wasn’t the type of emotional where I just cried though, it was the type of emotional where I kept looking around the room in awe of the effort that went into my shower, the people who were there, the love in the room, the gifts, the food (and how perfectly aligned with ME it was!).
I can show you pictures and I can show you the smiles and details, but I can only *try* to convey how much love and happiness I have in my heart. The amount of effort and detail that went into my shower was unbelievable. There were diaper babies, diaper cake centerpieces, fruit in the shape of a baby for dessert, mini handmade cloth diapers filled with Pure Bliss granola, adorable favors and more. Not to mention the menu was specifically designed around me for all of the food to be delicious and healthy. There were lots of veggies, sandwiches, salads and fruit…and chocolate.
My sister and mom hosted the shower, but they had lots of help from my Uncle Tom and cousin, Jess, to put together every little detail. It literally was a perfect day and I’m SO blessed and thankful to have so many people in my life who love us.
Oh and another perfect touch was, instead of a card guests were asked to bring a book for Baby C and write in a special note in the inside. I don’t know when I’ll ever be able to read those special notes because those really DO make me cry. I tried to read a couple and had to stop!
Enjoy the pictures. Thank you, thank you, thank you to Grandma and Auntie to Be (my mom and sister), Jess, Uncle Tom and my amazing family and friends who joined in on my special day whether they were there or just thinking of us!
me not so good at letting balloons go. We had to do a take 2 of this.
It was certainly a perfect day. I can’t wait to show Baby C all the pictures, books and special things from that very, very special day. <3 My heart is exploding.
