Will she be messy? (A baby shower)

Ok, first let me explain the title to this post. The night before the shower, I was over at Jackie's house while she was getting ready for the shower. We were scurrying around and Hannah and Holley were "helping" us with little things. Throughout the night, Hannah asked 3 different times if Addi is going to be messy. We were so pre-occupied that we just kinda blew her off...I think at one point Jackie did say, "Yes, babies are pretty messy". A little bit later, I overheard Hannah telling Holley...."Addi will be messy when she is born that's why they are giving her a shower". LOL!!! Out of the mouths of babes!

So on to the shower....OMG! It was awesome! It was so good to see all of my friends and family....some I had not seen in forever! Everything was just perfect. Jackie outdid herself on the food and decor. Sooo cute! (Also, thanks to the others who helped by bringing things!) And we got so many nice things! I could never even begin to list everything...it would go on forever. Let me just say that if Addison were to come now....she would not want or need a thing!

Me...opening gifts. There were so many that it took close to an hour, I think. It was like Christmas but 10 times better!

This is the whole gang!!

Me at the gift table.

Beth G. had the bright idea to take a pic from upstairs looking down. Great thinking, Beth!

The School Box gang! We all worked there together! It has been 8 or 9 years (gasp) since I worked at the School Box but I still stay in touch with these girls. I talk to and see most of them weekly!

The Hair Bow tree before it was full. I ended up with a ton of cute little bows and head bands. So much fun!

The food table. OMG! It was all so yummy! I ate 2 plates full. Wish I had some now!

I had to hide my eyes for the big surprise!

OMG! A stroller/carseat combo......in pink! This great gift was from my dad and Shirley! I was soo excited!

Two of my favorite girls.....Shannon and Jackie!

My dad and the girls after the shower. I cut down all of the balloons and gave them to the girls. Holley decided to let hers go up to Meemaw (our kids usually do that with all of their balloons and the younger ones just catch on somehow), but Hannah wasn't letting hers go!

I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who came and for all of the nicest gifts ever! I am so lucky to be surrounded by such great friends and family!

Update from the Dr. today: Well, Ms. Addi has decided to turn her little self around into a breech position!!! She has been head down the whole time and now she is feet down. I will go back in 2 weeks to see if she has turned. If not, they will schedule me for a C-section....I can't decide if that would be a good thing or not!

That shower was amazing! You got so many wonderful gifts! I hope she turns!

Lisa said...

So sorry that I missed it. I will start praying now that Addi changes her mind and her position too. Hope all is well.

I loved my "scheduled" c-sections! Don't worry about that. I had fun at your shower.
