Baby Shower!

I had my baby shower last Saturday before I left Buenos Aires. It was a BEAUTIFUL, fun event, attended by tons of ladies I love.

We ate.

And then opened presents.

Lots of presents.

Mom, this one's for you. Or for me? Or baby girl? I was so confused by the card that said "Love, Grandma" ...
... I was like, "Oh, this gift is from my grandma!" And someone said, "No, it's from your mom -- you know, grandma!" Wow, that's a mind bender!

I wasn't sure at first what this gift was ...
... I thought it was a doilie for the headrest of the chair and a matching lap blanket. Luckily the ladies straightened me out -- it's a burp cloth and receiving blanket. Duh!

See those pink paper bags at the far left?
Neil helped me make 50 bags of thank-you cookies! I still have to write my thank-you notes. I am so grateful for all the beautiful, wonderful gifts and all the love this little baby girl already has from those around her!

Meg - I'm most impressed that you were able to bend over enough to play with the toy on the floor.

What a wonderful show of love, support and friendship from the ladies! My thanks to them all, too.

You are a lucky person.
