Someone Needs A Shower

Those of you who have read my blog for awhile may recall my making mention of my friend "Pregnant L". Pregnant L is no longer pregnant and will henceforth be referred to as just plain old "L". I'm happy to report that about two weeks ago, L gave birth to a beautiful and perfect baby boy who is as sweet and lovely as can be.

I meant to throw L a shower before her baby was born, but because of the timing of the IVF and her due date, I just couldn't bring myself to put something together - it would have been too hard for me if the IVF hadn't worked. I wasn't even kinda ready to deal with "baby stuff" unless I was sure I was pregnant with a keeper (I love you Scrappy!).

So, I decided to throw L a "Welcome Baby" shower instead, which truth be told, I think is a nicer idea than having a shower beforehand, if for no other reason than it gives everyone an opportunity to meet the baby all at once, rather than inundate the new mum with tons of visitors spread out over weeks.

Long story short (or vice-versa), the shower is this upcoming Sunday.

I've been planning and scheming and shopping and finally have everything ready to go. And I must admit, I'm excited.

It's been such a long road, I never thought (but always hoped) I'd finally be in a place (pregnant) where I could not only attend a baby shower, but throw one - and be excited about it at that. I am so incredibly lucky and grateful to be here.

Sunday is going to be a fun day. I can't wait until it's my turn for a baby shower.

I love the idea of a Welcome Baby shower. Especially for those who do not know the sex of their child until they are born. Truth be told, you don't need much when they come home, it is a few weeks later when you are finally in the swing of things.

I hope you have a great time!

Showers are so much fun. I don't know if it's a southern thing but we call this kind of shower a "Sip and See" and usually have tea and coffee with girly sandwiches and desserts.
I hope you have so much fun. :)
