Baby shower! (pics included)

We had my baby shower yesterday. I got a lot of stuff! Here are some pics... there are a lot, sorry!


Me and my grandmother (I'm huge)


Yummy food!


Close up pic of some decorations/letters my sis did


One of my sweet nieces (she will be having heart surgery this summer and this terrifies me. I cant stand the thought of them cutting on this sweet little baby)


My husband and our friend Brad used the "man cave" as a daycare for the day, the kids loved it and DH actually had just as much fun I think.

There were so many people there! I was shocked at the turn out. I didnt post all the pics b/c that would have REALLY been a long post. LOL I am very blessed to have so many great friends and family in my life. Smile

I feel like a fat cow but thank you. LOL I've gained about 55 lbs (give or take). I cannot wait till the baby gets here and I can try and get this weight back off! I know it will be hard but I plan to do whatever it takes. I got the dress from Old Navy on their website, they didnt have it in stores but I loved it and then when I got it I loved it in person even more! I was so excited.

Thank you all for the sweet words!

Oh and no I havent started washing and organizing yet. We worked so hard to get the house ready that today I have been relaxing... everything is still on the table (except for the carseat, we opened it last night b/c I was so excited I wanted to see it outside the box!) This week it will be done I'm sure. Actually it will partly be done... we still havent gotten the dresser yet. :oops:

That's wonderful that you got so many of the things you needed, and so many homemade gifts too! It's so wonderful to have lots of friends and family around to shower you with love. Smile

Don't worry - your body will be yours again before you know it. I know it's hard because we're getting to the point where we just feel so big, but you really do look lovely in your pictures - glowing and healthy, which is exactly what a pregnant lady should be. Smile When we all get the go ahead to start working out and dieting (I think that comes at your 6 week post natal appointment) we should start an April 2013 Biggest Loser team. I'm sure there will be lots of us looking to get back into our fighting weights, and I think it will be helpful and fun to support each other. I definitely will be looking to do that. Smile

You look lovely and the shower looks like it was a lot of fun! I'm glad you got so many things for baby, and homemade gifts are extra special-those are the ones you will treasure!

You look amazing! Glad you had a good shower. I got a handmade blanket that made me tear up because she put so much effort into it - and I don't even know the lady! She was MIL's friend. LOL My mom is making a blanket and pillow, but she's hand sewing everything, so it's taking forever..haha.
