Showered with Love

My first Baby Shower was yesterday and it was great. My SIL hosted it at her house for all of Ed's side of the family. And my Mom, brother's wife and my niece went too. It was nice to have them there. My SIL decorated the house in blue from top to bottom. It was so adorable. She made cute little favors and there were special little touches all over. The food was great and everyone seemed to be enjoying themselves. The family knows what kind of journey we've been on so they're all super excited to FINALLY have a shower for me.

We got so many great gifts. Most were off my registry, and then many people also added a cute little blue outfit, bib or hat. EJ is going to be a very well-dresses little lad :) Everyone was super generous. A few people are sending me their pictures so I'll be sure to post them as soon as I can.

Now I'm excited for the shower my Mom is throwing for my side of the family. It's the day after Thanksgiving so that will be a very fun weekend!

Can't wait to see pics! What a fun way to spend the weekend. Seeing as I'm a slacker, your blanket won't be ready for your next shower-but it will be ready before EJ makes his appearance :)
