A few weeks ago was a complete whirlwind, with my baby shower and birthday party all in one day. It was held at the largest clubhouse in our apartment complex. After some general parking and directional hiccups, I think it was the perfect space to hold everyone.
Although I’m normally a hater of baby shower games, my mom convinced me to play three of them – Baby Item Bingo, Guess The Price, and Measure the Belly. I just like to eat and hang out, you feel me? We also did a 10:30a shower so we could do breakfast food, which is my favorite ever.
We used the canvas we revealed his gender on to reveal his name to everyone. We wanted to tie everything in together, and this was super sentimental to us. After he is born, we will have his written birth stats written on it and it will become an art piece that we can always display in his space.
My friend Lauren, “the other pregnant one”, as her name tag states, gave birth to that baby is her belly just a few days later! She was 39+4 at my shower and I will be 37+5 at her daughters 4th birthday party next weekend. Our babies will be about five weeks apart. She had a girl and we will be having a boy!
I can’t thank everyone who helped make this event a success enough! My mama for her mama magic and general spoiling of me. Those family members who made the amazing center pieces and party favors that I love so much. And my J, who hung around helping make everything run smoothly behind the scenes.
