  • Yesterday was my baby shower!!
    My wonderful sister Andrea did all the planning and hosting.
    Everyone had a really great time. We got sooooo much stuff i couldn't believe it my mini van was completely packed to the brim.
    DD had to ride in the front seat to go home because that was the only space in the car! The in-laws got us the car seat/stroller combo i had been wanting but wasn't sure if i should spend the money on. My husbands family don't know a lot about baby showers. There custom is to shower the baby after it's born.
    One of his aunts brought me in a head wreath with money on it. She said it';s there custom for everyone to clip money to the wreath if they want to hold the baby. No one clipped any money but there was quite a bit of cash with the gifts which is not typically an American custom. Though i wasn't complaining
    We got lots of pictures but i will have to wait until my oldest sister gets them all loaded on the computer. Having all the stuff in the house and being set up definitely makes me realize how close we are to holding our little one in our arms.
    I will post pictures soon!!
