Baby Shower!

This past weekend the lovely ladies at my church threw me a shower to celebrate Connor. I know some people think that second baby showers are taboo or "gift grabby" but we only recently joined our church and they always throw one shower per family. So since we didn't attend while I was pregnant with Grace, we got to celebrate Connor! I think inviting the same people to a second shower and expecting them to get you gifts is tacky, but since these were almost all new friends, I didn't feel so bad.

I wasn't sure how Grace would do with all of the people, she sometimes get shy around large groups. However, I knew that everyone would want to see her. So I got her all dressed up and off we went. Luckily Grandma was there to help because Grace was certainly in a mood. She was crying and being shy and I started to regret bringing her until she discovered that there were cupcakes. She played happily the rest of the shower snacking on cupcakes. Unfortunately, she has developed my sweet tooth. Her newest word? Cupcake. There are leftovers in my fridge and she constantly goes to the fridge door going "cupcake? cupcake?"

Once she was good and sugared up, she decided that she really liked the ribbon bows and thought they were nice hats.

She loved "helping" open the gifts and decided that most of them belonged to her. As soon as she saw something she liked, such as a gorgeous quilt or an adorable handmade stuffed dog, she grabbed it and put it in a pile next to grandma. She would then lay on the pile until she saw something else she liked. By the end, about half of the gifts were in her pile. I hope this isn't a sign of things to come!

We received so many amazing things for Connor and I'm excited to say that I think we're pretty much set with almost everything we need. We're obviously able to re use a lot of what we already had for Grace, but it's nice to see some blue things in his room now. His closet is full of clothes and he has plenty of comfy blankets waiting for him.

We're less than 6 weeks away from our c-section date. This pregnancy has flown by!

Did you have a shower for your 2nd child?

  2. She's so cute in her dress with the ribbon on top. We didn't have a second shower, but we're having a meet the baby party. Honestly, it's really just family and close friends and an excuse to see everyone aside from Christmas, weddings or funerals. Glad you're all set for him to arrive.
