Yesterday was my baby shower. It was so much fun! There were lots of monkey items as I refer to the babies as monkeys. Like many other things these days, it was emotional for me. I had a whole speech planned out in my mind to talk about how special this was because it was long awaited and we have appreciated all the support of everyone through this long, but totally worth it journey. Instead, as the last gift was unwrapped, I struggled to find words, started crying, and then all I could get out was "thank you for coming." It really did mean a lot to me and I wish I could have kept it together to say so, but I just couldn't! I also announced the names to anyone who didn't know, which was mostly met with silence. :)
I will entertain you with some photos:
Pink and blue carriage "Here We Come" cake.
A beautiful diaper cake, complete with monkeys of course.
The boy and girl Cabbage Patch wreath on the front door. I had a Cabbage Patch that I dearly loved as a child named Abbadrew so I thought it was a cute idea.
My lovely 5 year old assistant and I unwrapping gifts. She spent the night with us last night and it gave us a little glimpse into parenthood. The bed was crowded so hubby ended up on the couch. She woke me up this morning and told me her tummy hurt and then barfed all over my bed. Three times.
A silly shower guest.
I had to throw this in there. It was taken the night before the shower. My specialist said almost three weeks back that I have reached the stage where the belly will grow every day, almost noticeably. He was right! This is only two weeks after the previously posted maternity photos. Crazy!
So, we have all the baby stuff, now we just need the babies!
