Baby Shower


I had such a fabulous time tonight! It was Baby Shower time! My dear friend Laura Jauzzi and sister Rebecca, threw me a beautiful shower. The decor was themed in pink, black and white... of course, to match Londyn's nursery! So many details were put into the event that made it that much more special.
My talented super Mom made the most adorable diaper cake which I will be displaying in the nursery for sure. AND... she made a bouquet of roses out of baby socks, accompanied by baby's breath and other greenery. So stinkin' cute!
Yummy foods including fruit, salads, sweet breads and punch were served. One of my favorite parts of the evening!
And last but not least, so many generous and thoughtful gifts were given. We received so many things that we needed for baby Londyn. Not to mention, all of the fun baby girl "necessities" as well. We were given lots of adorable outfits, toys, books and baby accessories... much needed diapers, wipes and hygiene items.
My favorite of all, was of course- my mothers' gifts. First, she gave me a quilt with a great amount of sentimental value. When I was 10 years old, my mom let me pick out my own fabric for a quilt. She then helped me to sew all of the blocks for the quilt, using a paper-piecing pattern. Somehow in the hustle and bustle of life... the project got tucked away and hasn't been seen since. Recently, my mom dug out the blocks and finished the quilt we had started together. Ironically, it is a perfect baby quilt. What a special gift. Londyn will enjoy snuggling up with this beautiful creation, made with lots of love from her Mama and Grandma.
The other two gifts that she gave us were "our" diaper bags! Yes, we picked out a diaper bag for me and a diaper "dude" bag for Andrew. Seeing as how he wasn't to fond of my leopard-print selection. My mom filled both the diaper bags with all of the necessities for the hospital. Andrew's is filled with snacks and travel sized hygiene items. It also comes with a matching changing pad, travel wipes container and pockets for baby needs. Mine is of course, leopard-print with a hot pink interior... filled with female hygiene items, diapers, wipes and the matching changing pad and accessory bags. Aside from the clothes we need to pack, we are all set for the hospital!
