I have been anticipating this day for the last 18 months. I have absolutely loved babies and baby showers since I was a tot. But after two miscarriages it was hard to believe this party was finally for me! It was a day I didn’t think I would ever be able to have. I was an emotional mess full of happiness. Just thinking of this monumental day brought tears to my eyes. This special day meant so much more than the delicious food, gorgeous center pieces, and cute baby onesies.
I didn’t want to start the baby room until we reached a “safe zone”. At my 20 week scan, I asked the doctor when we could stop worrying. He replied with “probably not for the next 18 years”. Haha! We decided to wait for the 30 week mark. At 30 weeks (a few days before the shower) Ed & I got the baby room started. That way we could easily put the gifts away after the party. I am such a planner, love being organized, and quite frankly a neat freak… So, this only made sense! To this day, I spend the majority of my time in Baby G’s room sitting in the comfy glider. 🙂 Waiting patiently with so much anticipation!
The shower was perfect and very meaningful. Not only was it a huge milestone I never thought I would be able to reach… But it was a room filled with love, positivity, and some of my favorite ladies. We are so fortunate to have so many amazing people in our lives. I feel so happy that we are bringing our little one into a world with so many wonderful people that already love and care for her. The day left me feeling so loved and fortunate.
Thanks to my sister, sister-in-law, mom, and Aunt Sheila for throwing Baby G the most amazing and unforgettable day. Thanks to everyone who came and celebrated this special moment with us. Love you all!
