Rain down on me . . .

. . . showers of friendship, that is! My baby shower was yesterday, and I am still smiling from the wonderful time I had! It was a really great time and memorable afternoon. I never had a bridal shower or baby shower before, and seriously don't like being the center of attention (ok, unless I'm drunk). Also, I have one-on-one friends . . . meaning, I don't have a group of friends that are friends with each other. They've all met at J*'s b-day parties before, but they don't know each other otherwise. So I was kind of nervous about the whole thing! But, it worked out great, and everyone had the opportunity to get to know each other better, since it was a small gathering. And it was only my cousins and aunts (no inlaws!), so I could spend more time with each of them too.

The most fun part was the creative idea for a shower craft my friend Robyn brought along. She bought several packs of Gerber white onesies in 3 different sizes, along with fabric paints, fabric markers and stencils, and every guest made a unique onesie for the baby! So I have very special onesies for baby's first year! Here is a pic of them all done . . . my 7 year old niece, 7-year old cousin, and 3 1/2 year old nephew did a few too . . .some of theirs were artistically better than the "adults"!Will post tomorrow night after my 37 week appointment!
