Baby shower madness!
This past Saturday was my baby shower – and man, can my friends party! I decided to have complimentary pitchers of margaritas and sangria … but then people started ordering shots … whew!
We had a lot of fun, made a lot of noise, ate some delicious cupcakes and some great Mexican food! Here are some pictures – enjoy!
Here was our table:
Here are those party people I was telling you about:
Edgar and I having fun:
And this was an adorable onsie that we got as a gift … whoever said that gender neutral clothes weren’t cute?!? Doesn’t this make you go, “Awwwww…!”
We also made our way over to Babies R Us, where we bought a Pack n’ Play, a “glider” chair, a bassinet, and a swing. Edgar assembled them all on Sunday (it was like Xmas for him). After everything was all set up, furniture re-arriagned and the dust had settled, we both looked at each other.
Edgar: “We still have 8 more weeks, right?”
Edgar: “Think the baby will come early?”
Me: “I hope so!” (excitedly)
Edgar: “Me too!”
Then we went back to sitting in silence, our minds racing, trying to imagine how it could possibly feel to have a baby – our baby – occupying our lives.
This morning I woke up next to the empty bassinet. I again tired to imagine how it would feel to have my baby sleeping inside. Deep down I think we both know that this can’t be imagined – it will be something only realized when our baby graces us with his/her birth.
