I thought I'd be lucky to get one baby shower, but God has truly blessed us by giving us a grand total of 4! I think I can officially say that all these showers created a flood. Here are snippets from all 3 of my Savannah showers:
|Anne can't wait for Baby McD to come!|
My church family at Grace Church of the Islands threw me a huge one. It was so encouraging to see how so many ladies in our church took care of our expanding family by giving us so many baby items that we will need to welcome our baby girl into this world.
This shower was a brunch and this was some of the spread. I loved the diaper bouquet as the centerpiece!
I had several younger girls assisting me with the opening of gifts. They were a big help!
Next up, I had a shower at my work, Mathnasium. My co-worker, Rachel, was the one who did most of the work for it. Look at her yummy baby carriage cake! It was made of funfetti cake, one of my favorites.
My boss says that our baby will be the first "Mathnasium Baby." As you can see, they decorated it accordingly. I'm wearing a little sash that says "Mommy-to-be." It was a smaller shower, but I had so much fun! They focused on giving me very practical gifts, which I definitely will need once she makes her appearance.
Lastly, I had a Paris-themed shower for friends that I've gotten to know in Savannah that aren't a part of my church family or work. The invitations were super cute and said "Ooh La La," and Laura did a great job of including that into her decorations. Look at this spread! It was beautiful!
Once again, I had some helpers - these twin girls helped me determine which gifts to open. :)
I got a pretty good bump shot at this shower - they gave me a boa to go along with the parisian theme. I was about 34.5 weeks pregnant in this.
All my showers were so much fun! I have just been blown away by all of the love and support that I've received from all these sweet ladies that have touched my life over the past 3.5 years in Savannah. I've now begun the task (with a lot of help from my mom) of putting the nursery together. It is coming along and I think I am in the middle of nesting!
