BABY SHOWERS: 1st of 3

So I woke up yesterday morning, and I was super excited because it was the 1st of 3 baby showers that my friends and family have set up.  Now I know 3 baby showers really sounds like a lot, but let me explain.

The one yesterday was put on by two good friends in the city I live.  My family (both my mom's and my husband's) live about an hour from us.  So...the baby shower here is for all my friends that live close to us. Then my mother is throwing me one for her family to attend, and my mother-in-law is throwing me one for her family to attend. Both families are fairly large.  There, hope that makes a little more sense.

Anyway, I just wanted to get on here and say how thankful I am to all of my friends for the lovely encouragement and gifts that I received from them.  This day was truly special, and I am so glad that I got to spend it with all of you!

My two friends who were hosting made delicious treats.  One made chicken cheese steak which makes me very, very happy.  And the other made these awesomely delicious chocolaty, ice creamy, andes mints thingys.  MMMM...

The encouragement really came in the form of a prayer time.  Oh how lovely this was!  I was seriously on the verge of crying multiple times.  Thank you guys!!

Here are just a few of the fun things that I received...Baby Hunter is going to be so happy!
Several onesies - striped, gatorfied, monkeyfied, caterpillarfied ;-)
Cute sleepers with monkey feet
And the essential of all essentials...a nursing cover!!

Yay!  Thanks again to you all.  You have no idea what it meant to me for you to all join me in this exciting time!!

Doesn't having the baby shower really make you feel "whoa, almost here!"? It did for me! And I hope your friends continue to stay supportive (sounds like they are great) so you don't have awkward mommy dates like me lol
