Our baby shower was this weekend, and it was so much fun! Tons of people showed up and squeezed into Sue and Tony's house (Rick's aunt and uncle). It was so good to see everyone! Many of my friends who I haven't seen in months were there, plus all of Rick's relatives and a ton of Jeanne's (Rick's mom and the fabulous host of the shower) friends. One of the best parts was that Elizabeth (Rick's sister) was there from California and surprised me at the door! I was so excited to see her, and of course I got a little teary. I'd blame it on the hormones but I've always been quick to tears. ;-) The attached picture is of Elizabeth and I right before the gift opening.
Everyone was so generous, it really amazed me. I think the only things we have left to get are some small essentials (sheets, sleepsacks, a few more onesies, etc). Since we're still working on the nursery, we have everything piled in our living room--we look like a Graco warehouse! We were able to compact everything into a pretty small space but still, I'll be happy when I have someplace to unpack everything.
I'll try to post more pictures soon, assuming I get copies of them from other people who were taking pictures--I was a little too busy to take very many pictures. (I really hope someone got a picture of the cake--it was so cute!).
