My wonderful sister Kim threw me a great baby shower while I was in Michigan last week. It was a family shower held at my Aunt Linda's house. My family is very large and it's a challenge trying to get everyone together. It was especially hard with it being a holiday week and my family being big campers. In spite of all this, we had a great turnout! Thank you Kim for putting this all together!
During the shower my sister gave everybody an "advice card" to put down their words of wisdom for me. I loved reading these! It was fun to hear every body's input.
Some of the gifts I received included a high chair, car seat, booster seat, bedding, diapers, pacifiers, onesies, bottles, etc. It's starting to feel like I am having a baby!
Kim had fresh bagels, muffins, breads, and fruit. It was yummy!
This picture was taken late in the day - several hours after the shower. I am not sure why Kim wanted a picture of my feet. Maybe so I would look back some day and realize how swollen my ankles are!
In this picture you can see the bedding my sister gave me. I felt bad registering for it because it was so expensive, but I just loved it. Ben is painting the baby furniture black to go with this bedding. It's going to be beautiful! It's the only gender neutral bedding I really liked.
Here is my Aunt Rose and cousins Amber and Stephanie. Stephanie is due to have her sixth baby in November. My Aunt Rose is the mother of nine children. For her piece of advice she told us to give our kids the best gift we can give them - siblings. They are such a great family!!
My Aunt Linda, sister Kim, mother-in-law, and my grandma Miller. My grandma is not your typical Grandma. She cracks me up. I mean, look how tanned and toned her legs are!!! She has more energy than most people I know.
