Hello all,
I know you are just dying to know how the shower went. Well, better than I anticipated. It was short and fun for both me and the guests...I think. There are more photos on my flickr accout if yu want to check it out. My sister (to my right in the next photo) planned the games which kept everyone involved while I was opening gifts. I got a lot of things off my registry and quite a few things that were not. ( I didn't use the code phrase Anna, but it did pop in to my head a couple of times, of course those were the things that did not have a receipt.)

Opening gifts

I did discover that I registered for WAY to many towels/washcloths and blankets (I am having a baby in JUNE , I must of lost my mind registering.) and then got more blankets/bath stuff that i did not ask for! They say not to register for toys or clothes because those things are always a popular gifts. That came true for the toys I won't need to buy any more, but not so for the clothes. I got a couple of cute dresses, but only a few packs of onesies and that was it.

I know more gifts will be coming, Ihave another shower or wo, an Ians buddies are throwing him a pamper party (perfect for guys they bring a package if diapers and beer and hangout to razz the future father about how much his life is going to go down the drain)

Did anyone catch Notes from the Underbelly on ABC last week? A complete riot, and the absolute truth. I actually made me feel abit better about the lack of reason behind wanting to have a baby...I think it will be on wed at 8:30...If you have ever been pregnant or are even considering it, I think you will enjoy it.

Looks like fun! I was looking at the photo of you sister, and I was thinking, dang, I know her from somewhere! And then I realized - it was from your photo at Christmas when you gave her Peaceful Ways! LOL

I forget - do you know if you are having a boy or a girl? My friends said that they got lots of clothes at the shower if they knew the sex (and were telling others), but if they waited til the birth, then they mostly got clothes as new baby gifts.

I'm so glad they are starting to do parties for the dad's. That sounds like a fun time for Ian! I'd love to be a fly on the wall for that one!
Glad to hear you had a good first baby shower. You'll be amazed at all the stuff you think you have too much of and then end up needing more.
