A few pics from the baby shower

I had a wonderful day yesterday at my family baby shower!  I am truly blessed with the best family and I am forever thankful.  My Aunt Mary Jane opened up her home and provided a very yummy spread.  My cousin Jill provided a few games, including this one…

She melted six different candy bars in diapers and we had to guess what they were.  I only guessed two correctly.

My very talented cousin, Amy, usually gets paid to make these cakes, but I got this one just cause she loves me 🙂

This was the gift that freaked me out the most.  Do you see how small these are?!  Adorable.  Please note the 7+ month baby belly.

Most of my haul for the day.  These next few pics are taken in the baby’s room so you can see the two colors on the walls.

Here are my bookish gifts.  The Raggedy Ann blanket was made for me by a family friend for me as a baby and my Mom included the photos of me with the blanket while  I was still in the hospital. 

I also received  some very cute baby outfits already hanging in the closet, a few personal items for me, and gift cards, of course!  After the girl fun the men came out and we grilled and hung out and enjoyed the evening.  My swollen still have not recovered.

  14. I wish I could send something for you too. It is already 7 and a half months. Don’t worry, the day you deliver your swollen feet will go back to there normal size 🙂
    I had really bad swelling too and they increased when we shifted our house at 8 months 🙂

    That cake is so awesome, I would have taken a bite 🙂
    I am glad you have so many great gifts and it is so nice to see you and be happy like this! I am sure it is going to be all ok and great!

  16. Oooooh, baby stuff! How I love baby stuff. Everything’s so tiny and just precious. Your baby shower looked like it was a wonderful time.

  17. If you read the baby books, you’d realize that the pesticide helps eliminate the need for vaccinations. And, needless to say, 2 kids and no pests. That can’t be a coincidence.

    Glad you (and Jayson from the looks of these pics) had a great day.

    Go Bucks.

  23. That’s a lot of great stuff! I remember folding all the little onesies when I was pregnant and couldn’t believe how small they were! And when I packed everything away, I couldn’t believe my daughter actually fit into them at one time. Glad you had a wonderful day!

You look great Staci and don’t worry about the weight gain…that can make for a healthy baby:) Thanks for sharing the pictures, you sure did make out on gifts:)I love the Raggedy Ann & Andy blanket and that it was yours as a baby. Those onesies are tiny aren’t they?! I can’t wait to see baby pics here soon and I hope to meet up with you soon!
