My first baby shower!
Last Friday after work I headed up to American Fork to go to my first baby shower at the Olive Garden there. I was so excited! All of the wonderful women that I worked with at Riverton were so excited that I am finally pregnant that they wanted to throw me a shower. It had to be done early before school got out and we all went different places for the summer, which is why I had a shower at 28 weeks. Anyway, I got some really cute outfits, an adorable swimsuit, some baby books, and this Snoopy quilt. Jared likes the Snoopy quilt. Deanne, the lady who made it, apologized that it was blue, not pink, but I think it's perfect! I was also way excited because Jamie's daughter made me a diaper cake. There are ninety four diapers in this cake! It's not only a great centerpiece, but very practical and useful, too. I took a picture of the center layer so you crafty folks could see how to put it together. All the diapers are just rolled in a big circle then wrapped with ribbon; nothing else holding it together!
Also, everyone from the Special Ed department at Riverton pitched in and got me this Baby Einstein exercise saucer. I'm so excited for Kaitlyn to play with it, although I know she won't be able to until she's around six months. Jared is making me keep it in the box until then, so you just get the picture off the website. Thank you to everyone who made the shower so special, I had a blast: Jamie, Georgia, Susan, Deanne, and Jeanie.
When I got home from the shower, I found that the carseat Jared's mom had got for us had arrived. I immediately opened it, read the manual, and then went and installed it in the car (where is still resides). Jared laughs at me but indulges me in the trucking of the empty carseat around Provo. I had to show my mom and sister!
