Scenes from a baby shower.
{Part One.}

Tuesday, April 17, 2012

Since I just had my second (and last) baby shower, I thought it might be time to post photos from my first. You see, because the majority of my family and friends are in Seattle, we planned a shower/come-hang-out-with-Kathleen-party during my last trip home. I was blessed to have my two sisters and closest friend, Carina, take over the hostess festivities and all I had to do was sit back, relax and take it all in. For a gal who has thrown many a big party, it was a lot of fun to leave the planning to others. And I can't even tell you what a good job they did. From the food (quiche for days, people!), to the drinks (even my non-alcoholic punch was to die for), to the music (Yeasayer at a baby shower makes me happy), to the gorgeous cupcakes (thank you, Jami and Cheri!), to the onesie project that produced the cutest damn onesies I've ever seen and proved that the men in the group were just as into the project (if not more) than the women, to the hilarious homemade photo booth set up by the BFF, to the most generous, lovely gifts (don't even get me started on the handmade blankets that made me burst into tears) - it was a perfect afternoon.

More than anything, it was seeing so many people I loved in one room celebrating the upcoming birth of my little girl that touched me so deeply. Thank you, thank you to Monica, Debby and Carina for making me feel so loved and celebrated. I really can't thank you enough.

Now let's get to some photos, shall we?

{Just a glimpse of the amazing onesies.}

{Love you, lady. }

{My mom working the crowd over.}

{My lovely mama and sis.}

{Danny love.}

{It's not a party without the Connolly twins.}

{Katie setting up with a smile.}

{Babies on pink champagne glasses? Yes, please.}

{I was these girls' nanny for SEVEN years. I started when the oldest was six months old. Now she's 12 and I'm, um..., old.}

{Michael taking his onesie making very seriously.}

{Love it, Cameron.}

{These homemade mints - and little baby girls - were a hit.}

{Reunited with my girl, Luna, after way too long.}

{Sophie loving on her cupcake.}

It was a day that made even a self-professed baby shower hating girl a believer. Thank you to everyone who made it for reminding me why I am so dang lucky to be surrounded (even when I'm far away) by so much love.
