What a great day yesterday was! Baby shower! We have decided that this kicky girl is named Jane Rocella. In this picture I am giving Jane bunny ears.
We got so much stuff that I can't possibly remember to list here, but it was really a great day and we're feeling much better-prepared (ha, right?) than we were before. Brisco was most interested in all the things we were bringing inside and putting in "his" room (i.e., the nursery)--that's been his favorite place to hang out since we moved there. Don't get too comfortable, dog.
You can see in the above pictures that Andy and I had a boutineer and a coursage. We even wore them to the grocery store after the shower. An employee said, "You must be having a girl. Congratulations!" :)
I've got a couple of appointments this week to meet our potential new provider, as well as an already-scheduled one with my old peeps, and birth ed. class on Wednesday. Brisco's also got a follow-up to his teeth extraction today, and volunteering on Thursday... busy week and it hasn't even started yet.
It was dark when we got home so I couldn't have Andy take the standard shot by the fridge (which just seems to be where we get the best daytime light), so here's the about-to-crash-for-the-night shot:
Big, huge THANKS to Pam, Lindsey, and Renata for all the work you put into the shower planning. It was beautiful, fun, laid-back, and the food was delicious. Thank you so much!
