Baby Shower (Short Version)

Our amazing friend, Melanie, threw us a baby shower today, and Danny said it best when he called it "the shower to end all showers." Seriously, it was something you'd see in a movie and think, "Oh, right, like anybody actually has a baby shower like that!" It was incredible.

The spectacular Mel!

Our very talented friend Sarah, of LuSarah SEAS Photography, took lots of pretty pictures of the festivities, so I'm going to do my real baby shower post when she has these ready for the world to see.

For now, just know that this was one of the happiest days of my life. I haven't found the words to express how fantastic it felt to celebrate this baby with our loved ones. I'll probably never find the words, but I'll do my best when I write my "Baby Shower (Long Version)" post.

I won't make you wait to see a picture of our loot, though!

Daaaang!

Another point of interest is that after a few drinks (Did I mention that this shower lasted for 6 hours and turned into a baby party?), Danny accidentally referred to our baby by name in front of about 7 people. I don't want this group of people to have to keep it a secret from our other friends, so you can expect me to share his name with you sometime in the very near future.

Beautiful Beautiful Beautiful Shower! Such a lovely couple - and pretty soon a lovely little boy will grace your presence.....I swear Danny must have said the name an hour after I left! Such a beautiful and exciting day. I will stop blubbering (just read the novel I wrote in your card) xoxo

Amanda said...

Haha, yep! He blabbed RIGHT after you left. Good thing you already know it. ;)

And I just read your lovely novel. I was already crying from reading all of the book inscriptions, and it just made me cry more. I loved the part about not having advice for us--other than all we need is love and you know we already have that. :)

You're an amazing friend, lady, and I can't wait for our sweet babies to be pals. <3

I'm glad you had a lovely day! Wish I could have been there!

Oh, and the Baby Celis sign is adorable!

Amanda said...

Erica, isn't that sign ridiculous?? I wish this poor kid's room was bigger than 10x10, because there are so many things I want to hang on his walls—but not nearly enough room.

Yay, you had an awesome shower!! Look at all the gifts for your little one to enjoy :) your family & friends are clearly excited for you and Danny. Only a few more weeks now! I look forward to the "official" baby shower photos & name reveal. Also the dress is great - bright colours really suit you!
