Two Baby Showers in One Weekend… (One of them LABOR-Inducing!)

Boy was I BUSY over the weekend!

On Saturday I threw a baby shower for my friend Erin, who is a week ahead of me in her pregnancy and due on the 12th. It was a lot of fun we celebrated with a few close friends and enjoyed eating cucumber and cream cheese tea sandwiches (made by moi!), cookies, and cupcakes. Then Erin opened her presents and she got some great loot. 🙂

I must throw TERRIFIC induction showers because guess what? That night she went into labor! She now has a beautiful baby boy. I REALLY hope Im going to be going into labor soon. Send me those labor vibes, Erin! 🙂

I cut it pretty close in giving her a baby shower just in time, didnt I? Thats me, procrastinator extraordinaire!

On Sunday, my church threw me a really nice baby shower. It was nice that I didnt have to do anything for this one except show up. 😉 They ordered me a really nice (and extremely yummy) chocolate cake and really went all out on the presents. The pastors wife recovered my glider chair cushions (they were a pretty nasty off white color and had been spit up on a lot from Emmas babyhood) and another lady from church knitted a baby blanket and made me a dinosaur quilt! Im blessed to know so many crafty and generous Godly women. 🙂 Also included in my loot were plenty of receiving blankets, newborn diapers, baby clothes, and nursing necessities.

After all the excitement, Im feeling pretty exhausted but very happy. Two baby showers and my friend having her baby what a great weekend! It would have been perfect if my shower had been as labor-inducing as Erins, but no such luck yet. Oh well, wont be long now!

On todays agenda is making myself a rice heating pad. My neck is killing me this morning! Oh for the ability to find a comfortable position to sleep in again. 🙂 Enjoy sleeping on your stomach, people! 😉

Do you have any memorable baby showers to tell us about? Did you get what you needed?
