And for baby three? Well, I guess that depends on the Mama's friends and family...and how generous they are feeling with either their "showering" or their "sprinkling." I was blessed to be abundantly showered with number three, as well. I have been one blessed woman.
But, when my Mama told me that "we haven't had a baby girl in our family for 13 years, so yes indeed you are having yourself a baby shower up here in the County for baby #4," suffice it to say that I am well aware of "etiquette" or "tradition" - or what have you....and I was just a wee bit mortified.
At the very most - my Mama and my sweet little church that I grew up in should have given me a "drip."
How much can one person expect out of their wee little church who not only gave them their bridal shower but their very first baby shower as well?
Let's just say it was the farthest thing from being a drip that I have ever seen for a fourth baby...
|Sweet cousins...and aunties...and baby girls of delish.|
My brothers and I always found this to be highly entertaining....
We shall see what the next generation brings us...
And part of her decor was vintage dresses that she wore along with little dresses that I wore as a baby, as well.
And my cousin Jodi and Aunty Sylvia (my dear family members who were Mom's co-horts in crime for the big day) had us play a game that this preggo brain found to be extremely difficult! I think I maybe got six out of the eighteen questions. You had to list baby body parts with these little clues given.
Here's a couple of examples:
A school child = pupil
A place to worship = temple
Edge of a saw = tooth
A name for garbage = waist
So - it was just lovely. Everything about it.
I was made to feel loved, and I was over the top blessed.
I was surrounded by family and friends, and I was so very abundantly "showered" when I really should have only ever been "dripped" upon...
Well, I can't even begin to tell you the utter hoot they got out of seeing "ALL of the pink girly stuff!"
Especially the pink tutu and the sparkly converse sneaks....
Suffice it to say - they have been highly entertained with my sorting and nesting today...
