29 Week Bump Report and Maternity Photos (Part 1)...

A Pregnancy Story: Baby Shower!

May 11, 2012
Last weekend, my mother-in-law (and family) hosted my first baby shower. It was relatively small as she just invited family, but she didn’t leave out one detail. From the invitations, to the napkins,  chocolate-covered strawberries, punch, flowers and cupcakes (among many other goodies)…we really did have a wonderful time. I obviously could not take photos while I opened presents, but I did manage to take a few photos of the set up before every one arrived. Then, I passed off my camera to one of my husband’s cousins. I’m especially fond of the photo below – I...
