"Shower the people you love with love..."
I seriously can't believe it took me this long to sit down and blog about my baby shower!!
Yes! All of my friends and family were there to help celebrate the impending arrival of PJ this past Saturday at my amazing baby shower! I wish I had some pictures, but I was way too farblongjid to even pick my camera up, although thankfully lots of other people got some shots! The amount of love that was showered on our boy was completely overwhelming, and thanks to the generosity of so many, he now has a stroller, car seats, a portable crib, loads of cool baby boy clothes with skulls on them- the list goes on! We went from a teeny bag of baby clothes in my closet to, well...a houseful of baby stuff!! I can't help but picture what he will look like strapped into his car seat, or sleeping under the not one, but two amazing handmade blankets he was gifted, or nestled in his crib while we film him on our camcorder. PJ, not to mention Pete and I, were beyond blessed- frankly, we were all spoiled rotten!
And seriously? All of the work that my sisters did, making favors and games and invites and all of the general planning! Marla hosted the shower at her house, and even though she's a bit of a spastic hostess (she gets bad nerves, LOL!), everyone enjoyed her home and general hostess-ness! I just could not- and still can't- get over the whole thing! It was awesome! I don't think I could ever thank everyone enough for loving our sweet little man so much!
