I swear we must all be drinking baby makin' water or something, because there are so many of my friends who are pregnant or just recently had babies. In fact, in my ward alone, there will be almost ten new babies. Oddly enough only 3 of those are boys! I'm just excited Daxton will have so many fun friends to play with.
Last Saturday Jules and I hosted a baby shower for our good friend, Michelle. I've had so many fun memories with Michelle over the past few months. Last summer we spent day after day at Waterworld. We've had Sunday dinners, play dates at the park, movie nights, games, and double dates. We even joke about the fact that she's the reason I went into preterm labor. We were driving back from a double date together and we were both sharing funny stories from our childhoods of being raised in small towns in central Washington. I remember laughing at one of Michelle's stories when my water broke in the car.
I was so excited to find out that she is pregnant with her second child, this one being a girl. Jules and I thought it would be fun to throw a baby shower for her, which was also a great excuse to plan a party :)
Like I mentioned in my previous post, I was pretty excited about successfully making two diaper cakes for the party. There was a fun turn out of girls and she was able to receive so many adorable clothes for her little girl.
Jules is also pregnant, in fact their due dates are only a couple days apart, but her shower was a few days ago. Being summer, several of us were not able to attend, so she opened some late gifts as well.
She's always trying to steal the thunder! :)
I was so happy that Michelle loved her diaper cakes and the onsies I used for decorations. It was nice to have the shower outside, since our apartments are all on the smaller size, but I wish we had grass to make the scenery a bit more pretty. We had fun regardless though and people brought very yummy treats for us all.
Michelle and Jules, both due within days of each other. Who knows, maybe they'll even get to share a hospital room!
