On to the shower... I must admit I was a little nervous at first as I really am one of the first of my good friends to have a baby and I haven't been to very many baby showers. I was afraid I would not know all the baby lingo and not even know what some of the gadgets were that I would be opening but in the end it all worked out. At least I'd like to think that I fooled everyone and looked like a natural "mom to be" that has read all the baby books...
Ryan's sisters had really outdone themselves and all the details were great. They had cute onesies, socks and hats hanging from the mantle, a cute diaper cake on the table, baby pictures of Ryan & I and even cake balls that looked like little baby rattles!
It was fun to mingle with all the guests and we enjoyed a delicious lunch before opening gifts. All of our nieces and nephews were there and I had a ton of little helpers :)
I couldn't believe how generous everyone was and feel so blessed with all the gifts we received to welcome this new baby into our family.

With my Mom and Ryan's Mom
Since we are trying to sell our house we decided not to bring everything back to our little two bedroom home and my wonderful mother offered to hold onto it for the time being. I hated that Ryan wasn't able to see all our things so my mom snapped a few pics of everything. Now, I just need to remember what we all received in case anything happens to go missing. I know she already has a stash of baby items for her house and I think I heard her mention at the shower that she needs her own pack and play, towels, clothes, etc....
It was a wonderful day and we're so thankful to have such amazing family and friends in our lives!
