Yay! I successfully made it through baby shower #2 yesterday! It was at my mother-in-law’s & I was worried about the whole bedrest thing, but she had a comfy outdoor recliner for me to sit in & I got to relax in the shade the whole time. Nice!
Since our rosebuds are her first (biological) grandchildren, my MIL is super excited about their arrival & went all-out for the shower. She made a huge “diaper cake” that she carefully decorated with tons of cute baby essentials, a big ol’ bouquet of “baby bootie” roses, tea-themed favors, homemade cookie flower pot favors, etc… She also made lots of food — including a super yummy vegan-friendly warm pasta salad & even a little heart-shaped vegan cake just for me! It was her first time baking anything vegan & she was nervous about how it would turn out, but it was delicious!
I got so many gifts from people that I hardly know (or have never even met). I felt kind of awkward as I opened the cards & had to give them to my MIL to find out who they were from. I was amazed by the generosity of everyone there… We even got 2 beautiful handmade quilts from my MIL’s husband’s mother. Not to sound all mushy, but I’m so lucky to have married into such a nice family. These babies are already so loved!
Mike took some photos with my dslr, but not many came out… Too blurry. I tried to fiddle with the settings & take more today, but didn’t have much luck. Anywhoooo… here’s a few that did come out:
