My baby shower was yesterday, and I was blown away by what an amazing job my friends and family did in putting it together. We had great food, fun games, and lots of people I love. Oh, and an incredible amount of gifts! I feel like I now have everything I need (almost) for the baby. Now, I just have to find somewhere to put it. Right now, it's all over the house:
And on the deck:
Oh, the jolly roger in the background? That would be Erick's.
I was so glad to have my mom there. I hadn't seen her since February, as she lives back east. Plus, she's here until Monday, so I still have two more days to spend with her. She crocheted these really cool booties:
Since my mom is the only person who knows the sex of the baby, many people were dissapointed that the booties gave nothing away.
The highlight of the shower for me was the prayer time. I felt so blessed by everyone's prayers, and it was cool to open my eyes and see so many people wiping away tears. It's great that God's spirit was there, and also it was good to remember Who's really in charge.
Someone even prayed that the birth canal would be well-lubricated (!!), something I'm sure I'll appreciate more at some point.
Cindy took lots of pictures at the shower, so I'll be sure to post those, or at least a link to them, soon.
