This weekend my Mother-In-Law had the MOST perfect and beautiful baby shower for us in her beautiful and newly (I’m not completely sure she actually has moved in yet) renovated home in Sausalito. In fact, her house was a bigger hit then my very quickly growing bump.
I should start by saying that Alex and I didn’t even register for our wedding. We felt like we had plenty of things and really wanted our guests to enjoy themselves and celebrate with us, not worry so much about giving us something. We had lots of generous donations made in my dad’s name to AMFAR but, as far as china and bath towels, I couldn’t have been less interested. This was NOT the case with the baby shower.
I’m not sure exactly what’s been going on in this head of mine but, I have been a little psychotically obsessed with registering for this little lad of ours. My sister and Alex both think I’ve lost my mind. All that I have been thinking is that if I do not have a year’s wardrobe along with a full and decorated nursery complete by Labor Day, then I’ve already failed as a mother until the end of time. As luck would have it, my amazing friends and family stocked the baby shower within an inch of my life.
Aside from the gorgeous decorations, fun table treats (little trains, finger puppets, flowers, planes and lots more!) delicious lunch ( I think I ate my weight in arancini) and beautiful guests; it was a perfect afternoon of catching up with friends.
I never in my life thought I would be excited about a diaper pail (its airtight and odor free) infant bathtub (it has a thermostat) beach tent (it has SPF 50 UV protection, obviously from my sister) or a car seat (it spins so you don’t have to lean too much) BUT – I kid you not, I am not only excited, I am obsessed.
I couldn’t be a luckier duck then I am to have not only had the PERFECT baby shower, friends and family but, also to have been given 3 truck loads of gifts to occupy my organizing obsession.
Thank you everyone for your generosity and for such a wonderful day!
