Today I went to a baby shower for 2 of my friends: Kristin and Ashley (no, not "my" Ashlee, but a different one). This Ashley was lucky enough to get a month cut off of her pregnancy and went ahead and had her baby a few days ago. So we were lucky enough to see her and the baby at the baby shower! Kristin still has a while (until January). And 2 other girls at the shower were pregnant, as well! AND Ashlee (yes, the "Ashleye" Ashlee) is still pregnant, too. I think I should be careful not to the same water they've all been drinking.
Here are Kristin and Ashley opening some gifts that we showered them with, and then Sandy holding cute little Brady, and my favorite face I've ever seen Sharee pull:
My beautiful friend, Erin, and me, Erin showing me her tiny prego belly, then Kim and Kristin laughing at something that must have been incredibly clever, and then Erin's beautiful boy, Zenneth.
My gift to the mothers: a diaper cake (one for each mom)
It's made out of diapers (obviously) and there are bottles in the middle to hold it upright... and hair elastics and rubber bands to keep the diapers rolled up. It looks a lot harder than it really is. And no, I didn't come up with this idea on my own. I'm not that creative.
And here are my beautiful friends:
I'm so glad I was able to see all of you!! I had SO much fun. We definitely need to get together more often. It's extremely refreshing. I love you all!
Oh- Ashlee update. She is almost 35 weeks along, and is scheduled to be induced on the 22nd. Both babies (girls) are growing very strong and healthy, and Ashlee is feeling as good as can be expected. Tired, but good. She's been on bed rest for 2 months, which sucks, but it's been fun for me, because I get to go visit her! Every week I bring over some Gelato to keep us both very healthy and sane. So, that's the update. I'll post more info when I have some.
