Let me clarify....by "we're having a baby" we (as in Dan and I are not technically having a baby) but almost maybe kinda sorta. You see, my dear sweet friend from my back pocket, Mrs. Nellie Leis, is having a baby and I feel like I am the one having the baby! I am just SO excited for Nellie and her hubby and her family I can hardly contain myself. There is just no better excuse to have a party...so party we did!
After much push back and disagreeing on my part , Nellie and her husband decided NOT to find out what they are having. I know...boo. #whodoesthatanymore? Trust me, I tried to find out. Something about not wanting their random crazy friend knowing the gender or something is what Matthew said. That meant we had to go gender neutral. So yellow and gray it was.
We went with a "you are my sunshine" theme.
My kids helped me make the wooden fork and spoons. We wrapped some washi tape around them and circuted out little sunshines. We tied them together and used a glue dot to put the sunshine on. A lot of work...but totally worth it for sure!
Nellie started this nail art at one of our Friday's at the Farm sessions. She never got to the raindrops so we finished that up for her as well! It matched our theme so well!Nellie says she had NO idea of the shower. I think I believe her! I was just so nervous for her to arrive. I wanted to get a picture of us surprising her but knew I couldn't so I made the ladies practice so I could take a picture! Everyone jumped up from behind the counters. I just love them all so much for doing that for me! (Katie....I can't see you!!!)
After everyone left my uterus started crying again. I would so love to have another baby. It just brought back so many memories of what expecting felt like. I look back and don't remember the uncomfortableness of being pregnant or the pain of childbirth....just the amazing miracle that life is! So because we will not be having another one...I will welcome Nellie's baby with open arms and snuggle him/her as much as they will let me.
Now someone else get pregnant so I can host another baby shower!
