Baby showers can be funny things. I didn’t know if I wanted one. But we were privileged to have a very pleasant baby shower thrown for us on Saturday by The Sister-in-law and her helpers. My basic instructions were:
1) There must be food.
2) It will be for girls and guys.
3) No kooky baby games.
What ensued was a very nice afternoon of chilling out, eating, opening presents, some crafty activities and eating cake. I think The Little Twiglet knew there was something going on as he/she had a super-fidgety day, barely stopping moving all day long, which wasn’t so fun for some of us…
The decorating job was simply marvelous. I wish I had thought to take some photos of everything set up. Here is a glimpse of the creativity and thoughtfulness of The Sister-in-law and her helpers. I’m sorry to say I don’t even have a photo of the cake! I will track one down though. It was a lovely chocolate cake made by The Cake Queen Sister-in-law.
The activities that went down were decorating buntings and onesies and writing in the parental advice book.
I was overwhelmed with the presents we received, especially the ones that were lovingly made by friends and family. I have to say, I am surrounded by so great a crowd of crocheters. The Little Twiglet will not just have one homemade blanket, but a further four crocheted blankets! And some crocheted clothes. I am so proud of these creations. Excuse me while I attach masses of photos.
Well, what an event! This baby is going to be so loved. Now I must get back to my own craftiness and finish knitting my booties for the Little Twiglet. One down, one to go. Also, did I mention I bought some more yarn? Oops…
