Showers of Love

I am very lucky to have some amazing friends in my life who are just as excited about welcoming our baby in to the world as we are! The Man and I were given two amazing showers – one by my amazing friend Michele …

Me & Michele, June 25

who invited my friends and family to her house and put out an amazing display of food

and punch (alcoholic and non!)

and then a surprise shower by my co-workers!

And by surprise I mean I truly was clueless…

I thought The Man and I were going for a walk, but lo and behold in our lab, my co-workers had set up a plethora of sugary delights and gifts. I’m also very lucky to have a friend that took pictures at both showers (and who my mom officially wants to hire as our family photographer!) so that I have some amazing memories!

It’s hard to believe such a little person coming into the world needs so much stuff and I’m grateful that so many people have helped us prepare for Alexandra’s arrival. The Man’s aunts have been showering us with gifts practically since we told them we were pregnant, our parents have gotten all the big things we needed, and our friends and co-workers were generous beyond belief.

So now we have the clothes, the gear, the diapers (although you can never have enough diapers!) and the nursery which is almost complete. Now… just waiting on baby. 33 days and counting…
