    Default Baby Shower = Success!!

    My family and friends baby shower was yesterday and I feel so lucky to have such caring people in my life! We were given all of the big stuff plus many little things. There are really only a couple of things that I feel like we really need to purchase, and with the gift cards we've been given, we should be able to get them! So now, my husband is fixing up LO's closet and I'm sure he'll do the crib soon too. DH was even sweet enough to go by fragrance free detergent earlier so that I could get started on all the baby clothes washing. I'm going to end up doing two loads!! I got a whole bag of hand me downs from a friend yesterday plus a pretty good amount of new clothes from people!

    Next Sunday my church is throwing me a shower, and I hate to say it like this, but there are a bunch of generous, wealthy people, so we'll see what happens there! They ladies in charge of the shower gave out my registry information plus they are having a money tree! LOL Oh yeah, and surprisingly, I only got one package of diapers and wipes, so hopefully I'll get some from the church!

    This is definitely feeling more real having almost everything here and now we just have to get everything organized for her!

    That's awesome. You are truly blessed to have such people in your life. I've never had a baby shower, so we had to buy everything ourselves. I hope you get the rest of what you need and then some from the folks at your church.

    Wow you made out good! That's fantastic that there's so many wonderful people in your life who bought you these things. I'm surprised you didn't get many diapers too! But maybe next weekend!

    What a blessing to have such caring people in your life. We have bought all the big things ourselves this time. We mainly need clothes/wipes/diapers etc.

    That is awesome to have so many people give you gifts for new baby girl. It totally helps save $$$ with your first when people are generous like that.

    Yes, we are very lucky. We never could've imagined the generosity!!

    Well, we opened the crib last night and unfortunately, a piece was broken, so now we have to call the company and hopefully get them to send us a replacement part. I also washed all of her clothes and blankets and it took 3 large loads! Geez!!!

    I was so blessed with my first, too. It was great to be able to settle in, do lots of nesting, and get the world ready for the most beautiful person you will have ever seen.
