Last week my mother flew into New York to attend my baby shower hosted by my mother-in-law. My husband dropped us off and quickly left to watch football at his brother’s house, but I made sure to get a quick picture with the Dad-to-be before the shower got crazy. I am 31 weeks and a few days in the picture with him! In my 32 weeks chalkboard photo I tried to replicate the elephant design from the baby shower invitation (more on that below), so there is a bit of continuity with the shower theme.
The shower was a success. I am so thankful that our baby has so many friends and family who already adore him. My shower invitations (and matching thank you cards) were designed by Alethea and Ruth and printed by Minted. The invites were mailed with matching inserts asking guests to bring a book in lieu of a card to start our baby’s library. We received so many wonderful books, including a few instant favorites: May We Sleep Here Tonight; Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day; & Harry the Dirty Dog. I’ll be reading bedtime stories to my little guy before long! Until then, I have so much to do, including organzing the child’s (extensive) wardrobe and writing an endless sea of thank yous.
