Baby Shower #2
~ THIRTY-FIVE WEEKS ~
Yesterday was the second, and last, of our two baby showers - this time thrown by Stacey's mother, Patty, and my step-mother, Sue - at Knollwood Lodge inside Northampton Park --- ironically there was also another baby shower at the same time at Northampton, for somebody else named 'Stacey'. We were blessed to have many family and friends in attendance, along with an over abundance of awesome, mostly homemade food and desserts - thanks to all who contributed! Grace is now even more spoiled (and also very much loved), as she received many more gifts, clothes, and everything else... If this baby is not a girl, we are definitely going to be in trouble with this large, predominately female-only wardrobe!! Many thanks to everybody for all of the gifts, everything is greatly appreciated for sure --- and luckily we didn't get anymore Bumbo seats!
A couple baby shower games were played --- 'guess the belly size in string length', and 'baby bingo'. Maggie Kolcon won the string game as most people's strings were way too long, and there was a bunch of different winners for bingo. I surprised Stacey by inviting one of her good childhood friends, Christina Morganti, who she used to dance with among other things, and hadn't seen in a long time, to the shower. When Stace saw her walk around the corner into the building, the look on her face was priceless, and she was definitely very surprised and happy to see her!
A few shower pictures are below, but you can check them all out by Clicking Here! Also, the nursery has pretty much been finished, as both sets of doors are now up - but I'll post more on that in the upcoming days with some updated nursery pics. We have spent last night and the first part of today putting everything together and away, and pretty much all that's left is Grace's arrival (tentatively Oct. 5)! Stacey is still feeling well, still getting kicked every so often, and ready for baby bump to be gone! Hope everybody has a great Labor Day.
