We had our second shower a week after the first. Having been to one the week before made it no less weird. I still walked in the door, admired the decorations and felt like I was celebrating for someone else.
The first thing I noticed was the super cute (and deliciously yummy) cake:
How cute is that food table? I especially liked the cupcakes with the Oreos for eyes. Unfortunately I didn’t get a close up picture.
The game we played I have to say was totally unfair as it required a functional memory. She had put an assortment of baby things in a cute bag and we had 10 seconds to commit as many to memory as possible. Considering I can’t even be counted on to pay my electric bill consistently, I felt I was at a distinct disadvantage.
But its cool, because I (well, the babies) still got presents
A few of my favorites included some personalized stuff and the MamaRoo– it came highly recommended by a friend of Bryan’s step mom and so she bought us one. I have to admit it looks awfully comfy and a friend already commented on how she’d like to try it except it probably has a weight limit. 🙂 We also got tons of diapers – never in my life did I imagine excitement over diapers, but I squealed YAY DIAPERS every time. One of many strange firsts to come I am sure. (I’m particularly excited about our first squeal over baby poo. Bryan laughed at me when I mentioned it. I told him to just wait)
It is amazing how much stuff we got. In fact, by the time my parents get us some of what we didn’t get, there honestly won’t be that much left we have to buy. Except my one picky item – the super expensive Bob double jogging stroller.
The showers were exactly what I’d imagined they would be. Our babies are spoiled already and I wouldn’t have it any other way.

OMG. Those owls. So adorable. Isn’t having a baby shower for yourself such a surreal thing?? Those are two lucky beans you have!

We , too, got the Momaroo and were so excited about it! Unfortunately, our baby girl? Not so much. We ended up exchanging it for a higher end, but more standard swing (which she loves!) and a bouncy activity chair thing- yes both for the price of the Momaroo! But we miss the Momaroo- it’s very cool. Hopefully your little ones will love it!
You’re looking beautiful! So close to the finish line now! 🙂
