Baby Shower


We had an awesome time at the shower….as most of you know, our nursery is green and brown, so we tried to go with that color theme.  We had green balloons with brown ribbon, brown cakes with green icing, green table cloths, green t-shirts with brown birds on them (we gave a shirt to everyone who came to the shower as their favor). I can’t even begin to say how amazing it was to be surrounded by loving supportive friends and family.  Wow.  We are so blessed to have so many wonderful folks in our lives!!! So many people care for Wee One (aka Nessy) already.  Side note: K and I have started calling our boy NESSY.  The reason for this is silly of course, but will come with an explanation after he is born and you all know his name!

For those of you reading this that came on Sunday – THANK YOU! It meant more to us that you know! Thanks again for the many nice things you got us as well.  I can’t wait to use them with Wee One in a few weeks! Everyone has asked what we got, so here goes:

hungry caterpillar book, dr. s.euss books, 2 diaper & wipes caddies, a.vent BPA-free infant bottle starter set, coe swirl boppy, baby b.jorn carrier, m.oby wrap, f.isher price z.en collection infant seat (vibrates and plays music), sleep positioner with built-in nightlight and incline, u.ppa baby v.ista stroller (thank you K’s dad!), c.olumbia diaper bag, set of organic bibs, s.oothing sounds puppy, digital thermometor set, c.lean water infant tub, toys, nursing cover, organic changing pad & cover, cozy mocha blanket, organic sage thermal blanket, organic s.waddle me wraps (small & large), organic fitted crib sheets, organic 4 pack of receiving blankets, newborn double headrest for car seat, 6-pack of lap and burp pads, BPA-free a.vent trainer cup, 7th Gen diapers, waterproof pads, oh-so-cute patterned bibs (including a HANDMADE one from Notes From Two Moms….absolutely ADORABLE), gift cards for BRU, T.arget & WMart.  I know I am forgetting a few things….but, seriously we are so lucky and thankful for the things we got.  It is a huge help, and I am SO excited to use them all! We have most everything we need now…..we are going to get our car seat and swing in the next week or two, the rest of our birth supplies, and then we wait!!!!

I thought it would be easier to post a slideshow of the shower instead of a whole bunch of pictures.  Enjoy!!!

  1. Let’s fight back on Proposition 8. Let’s boycott California wines, produce and travel. Let’s publicize it. Let’s embarrass them. It worked a few years ago in Colorado. What do say?

  2. Nice looking shower. Glad you had such a lovely time.

    I haven’t told you before because it feels a bit single white female but Squeak’s colour theme is brown and green (and white) too. I swear we didn’t copy you! We’ve done a little bit of decorating in our room (we’re co-sleeping) and even have very similar bird wall decals. These boys HAVE to meet one day.

    Oh…and I know what your boy is going to be called…I’m sure of it!!!

  3. I am glad that you had such an awesome shower. Everything looked great! Love the t-shirts! 🙂

    Don’t worry about the weight gain. I am 11 days past birth and I have lost about 25 pounds or so (which was more than I had gained during pregnancy). It has flown off without me even doing anything. 🙂 I still have some carpal tunnel issues though.

    One of our favorite things has been sleep sacs/gowns. Soooo easy to change her diaper during the middle of the night without much fuss. 🙂
