Baby Shower Fun

My wonderful baby shower was on Saturday. It was so much fun! I was really worried that I wouldn't have a big turnout since I really don't know a lot of people around here but I was shocked to find that we had to pack about a dozen people into my living room! My dear friends Alianna and Alex threw the shower for me and they went above and beyond! We played some really fun games including creating a birth story mad lib, bowling with baby bottles, and dropping quarters into a cup with our knees! I wish I had a picture of all the beautiful food they made. We had ice cream sundaes with "dirt and worms" because that's what little boys like! They are amazing friends and I don't know what I would do without them! My mom-in-law and sister-in-law came down from Idaho for the shower (my father-in-law came too and he and Ryan went off for a fun afternoon) and my cousins and aunt came from Northern Utah. I feel so incredibly blessed to have so much support from family and friends and I wish I could have spend more time with everyone before they all had to leave. I got a ton of wonderful gifts and now feel very prepared for this baby. Again, I am overwhelmed by the support and love I got and continue to receive from my family and friends that I know well and also those I am just getting to know.

Here are a few pictures from the shower. If you took any pictures, please email them to me!

With Alianna, Alex, and Lisa (she couldn't stay for the shower because she had to go home to be with her new baby but we made sure to get a picture of the 4 of us before she left). I have been friends with Alianna since 7th grade, and Alex and Lisa since 5th!

Congrats on your soon to be baby! What else do you need and what's your address so I can go on a shopping spree too! Do you need some white onesies? They poop out of them so fast! Love, Megan
