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 I’m 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, didn’t I? That’s me, procrastinator extraordinaire!
On Sunday, my church threw me a really nice baby shower. It was nice that I didn’t 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 pastor’s wife recovered my glider chair cushions (they were a pretty nasty off white color and had been spit up on a lot from Emma’s babyhood) and another lady from church knitted a baby blanket and made me a dinosaur quilt! I’m 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, I’m 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 Erin’s, but no such luck yet. Oh well, won’t be long now!
On today’s 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! ;-)
