My baby has been showered with love!

This weekend my mom and sisters threw a baby shower for me at my grandma's house. The location was special because my grandma is housebound after a stroke, and this was the only way she'd be able to attend the shower. Plus she has great entertaining space. It was a wonderful day!

Baby NatureBud got lots of great presents, including a mobile that I think I picked out even before I knew he was on his way (see pic below). We also got lots of really cute outfits, including his "going home" outfit from my mom, which is what he'll wear when he first leaves the hospital. I commented that I couldn't wait to launder all these cute little things, and my mom's friends laughed. I guess I'll get sick of doing baby laundry soon enough!

For dessert, my mother-in-law brought cupcake lollipops, that a woman she knows is trying to make into an at-home, etsy-style business. They were delicious! And just the right size. The white ones are carrot cake and the brown ones are chocolate. We took home the leftovers, and now just 3 days later, they're all gone!

All in all it was a wonderful day. I only have a few must-have items that we still need to purchase before the baby arrives. And with more than 2 months to go, there's plenty of time to tackle that. Right now, I need to focus on thank you notes.
