here is just a few pics of the shower gifts i've received so far...i can say with this baby i have had to buy very little so far and still expecting more gifts before this kiddo arrives. i had a little time before work to upload some pics, i will upload more after i get all of this organized!
(to explain the pics. i have gotten so much clothes for this baby it is crazy. the pics did not do justice to really how many clothes i've gotten so far. i took a few pics of my favorite ones. the camo one is adorable, it is one of my absolute faves. the 2nd would be the onsies mommy's allstar and daddies little fishing buddy and the 3rd is the wvu cap with booties.) the only thing i've really bought so far was the travel system the little pack n play and a few outfits, everyone has been awesome to get me the essentials. my mom got the bassinet, the winnie the pooh infant tub, outfits galore. my dad got me the car seat, diapers, diaper genie, bottles and so much more.
on my wishlist still is the swing, which i know someone has already bought. gonna bring it when i have the baby, got a bouncy seat off a friend, and i think that is about it. just needs organized and whatnot. the shower itself on my moms side went fairly well. granted there were some family there i did not care for it was nice for them to show up and for once make it about me, and my baby not about them. the shower was held at a park, kind of a picnic setting which was cool, the only downside was having to walk a good distance to go to the bathroom, after the second trip to the bathroom i gave up and took my jeep after that. lol everyone got a kick out of it.
the next shower which i am looking forward will be at my dads next week, he is going to throw a cookout/get together...don't know if its really gonna be a shower, the whole fam will be there, men included, but they are all bringing gifts from what he says and always a good time with this side. i grew up with them and are very very close, plus my little sisters are so excited to be aunts. anyhow thought i'd share my expierence with you guys!
