Showered with gifts!

Saturday was so much fun! My wonderful friends hosted a shower for Baby Zane and he got so much great stuff. The kid is already spoiled rotten and hasn't even made an appearance yet. I felt so blessed to have lots of family and friends share the day with me. Zane had two grandmothers, three great-grandmothers, one aunt, two great-aunts, one great-great-aunt, and seven cousins there!

I feel a little more prepared to bring a baby home after the shower--he actually has socks to keep his little feet warm now!

Gwendolyn stayed with me Friday and Saturday night and it was so relaxing to just have girls' nights and hang out. I owe her a big thanks for helping me put together the swing (please let raising a child be easier than following those directions!) and organizing all of his clothes and other goodies!
The hostesses: Sara, Amy, (me), Allyson, Whitney, Gwendolyn
Zane's diaper cake that Amy made and yummy food that Allyson made

Candy bar diaper game. Gross, huh?

Showing Matt the goodies! Excuse his hair--he had just woken up. Is that really my belly?
It felt like Christmas morning!

And of course the pups had to test drive the swing

Looks like you racked up! Isn't it so fun to get all the stuff home and put it in their little room! BTW, I keep hoping to see pics of the nursery, is it done yet?
You look great! It is going to fly by...I can't believe I only have 1 week or so till my due date! You'll be there before you know it!

I love it! Daniel put both of the dogs in William's crib the other day-they seemed a little confused:) Ophelia's too big, but we definitely need to let Ernie test-drive the swing! So sorry I couldn't be at your shower. You look precious and I can't wait to bring William to meet Zane!
