This was the weekend of baby showers!
First of all on Saturday morning a wonderful group of women from my office hosted a shower for me and Eli. I was so excited about this shower and it was an amazing shower. They thought of every detail.
Food and Decorations:
In front of those cupcakes are pickled Pringles, mustard and cheez its. Some things I have eaten at work during pregnancy. I LOVE to dip the pickled Pringles in mustard. YUM.
I have seen different diaper cakes but I had never seen anything like this, it was incredible. This is a motorcycle built out of diapers, burp rags, receiving blankets, bottles, bibs, teething rings, and a basket thingy to go in the dishwasher. It was seriously so amazing. I was so proud of my friend Melody for making this. I don't think I ever could!
The gorilla on the motorcycle even had a personalized jacket:

And my mom:
Once again we are so thankful for the baby shower's that people have taken the time to put together for us. And for everybody that has gifted us. Eli has no idea how many people already love him!
After the shower my mom and I tackeled Eli's room. We got EVERYTHING washed. All clothes, sheets, blankets, etc, etc. We hung up decorations, got the closet organized and just cleaned up the room. I am SO happy that my mom was here to help me do it. We worked hard on it until around 11:00 that night. You can actually walk in his room. Yay!
Onto the second shower......
Sunday afternoon I helped host a shower for my friend Jodi who is due 5 days after me. I've said it before but it really has been so fun being pregnant together. We discuss a lot of TMI pregnancy subjects that would gross other people out, share our cravings, talk about how THIS TIME NEXT YEAR WE WILL HAVE A -insert appropriate age here- BABY and so on. I can't wait to experience motherhood with her.
First off our usual pic. 36 weeks:
The pretty food/cravings table. She is having a girl and the room colors are pink and green:
Her shower was wonderful and she opened presents for almost 2 straight hours! Lots of cute little baby girl stuff. LOTS of pink!
It was a fun, productive weekend!
