Showering with Love

Remember I mentioned hosting a baby shower for a dear friend? Well, it went off with only a couple of hiccups, but all-in-all, it went very, very smoothly. I love this shot of her mom and sister's hands on her belly.

We played two games. One was baby bingo, which players marked off their bingo cards any time she opened a specific gift. The other one was playdoh babies, where everyone had some play doh and they had 3 minutes to sculpt a baby. Here they are. Don't you love the brightly colored babies?

Here's a rare moment of me caught in action. Pardon the exposed bra strap. Isn't Mari a doll? I am a little bias, though. I love her! She's wearing one of the dresses my MIL made from a Portobello Pixie pattern. She hadn't had a nap that day, so she was 1 part clingy and 1 part spitfire. After being there for half an hour, I called in Daddy to the rescue. She was in need of a nap in the worst way and being around all of those fun and interesting women, I knew she wouldn't have one.

Like I previously mentioned, I'd done a bit of embroidery, too for one of the gifts. In the gift pile below, you can see a little robot on a burp cloth with the baby's name underneath it. It took me a few hours to complete, but I worked on it while watching Glee and the last half hour of Grey's. While the name wasn't centered, I figured, it was ok. It added character. My favorite part of it is the shiny red square in the center. I can't wait to embroider some fun things on some inexpensive hoodies for Marisabelle.

I'm kicking myself for not getting a fabulous picture of their stroller. Seriously, it was AWESOME! Took us less than 5 minute to put together, and that includes taking it out of the box. The hardest part was taking the wheels from their secured place on a piece of cardboard. Such a versatile stroller and very light. I highly, highly recommend it, ESPECIALLY if you buy the accessories (child tray, parents cup holder, etc), too!

Congrats Jorge & Hayley!
