Baby Shower

This past Saturday my sisters and Mom threw me a shower to celebrate Jude.  A bunch of family and friends together in one place celebrating our little boy made us feel really special and loved.


 I let myself off the hook for a night and enjoyed the food... and the cake- I was SO in heaven and a bit on a sugar high ;)


There were games, and wishes and hopes for Jude... some serious, some not.  I read a few "I hope you... have a baby sister."  Very funny guys ;) 


My sister really went out of her way getting some beautiful centerpieces from a local flower shop and made these pom poms below. 



Everyone was so generous, and some even made a few homemade gifts...


My cousin, Emily, made these for little Jude... girl's got talent!  I am so excited to shove him in these for a photoshoot :)



She even made Jack a zombie hat.  She knows us well. 


And my bff, Jess, made me cloth wipes... she's the one who basically introduced me to cloth diapering.  And I totally gave her the side-eye at first.

(By the way, I bought my cloth diaper stash!  We are officially doing this.  I will post later with all the details.  And if you got me disposable diapers at the shower, no worries our little man will need them in the first couple months as he has to grow into the cloth diapers.)


The guys made an appearance towards the end of the shower. 

My friend, Jess also lives pretty far away so she and her family stayed the night with us after the shower... and the following morning I did their engagement/family photos.


Oh and Aunt Debbie?  You are currently my favorite person, Jack has been busy playing with that balloon rocket launcher for a good solid 24 hours now.  Best. Purchase. Ever.


This kid is so ready to be a big brother! :)


It was an awesome weekend... thanks again Jessica, Lynnette and Mom.  I love you.
