Baby Shower

This past weekend I was honored with my very own baby shower! During my struggle with infertility baby showers were honestly the hardest for me! As happy as I was to celebrate friends upcoming babies, knowing that having a baby was something I may never experience never left the back of my mind. I would often fight back tears during the showers and on the way home I would definitely lose some. I honestly was convinced that this day was never going to happen for me.

But this past weekend was the very opposite! It was a small shower my sister and Mom hosted with my closest friends and my side of the family. It was perfect, nice and intimate. Getting ready in the morning I lost a few tears in the shower and a few more on my way there. I honestly just felt soo blessed to be able to experience having a baby shower for my baby, the baby that has opened our eyes to our very own miracle. It is crazy how easily it was to convince myself that this day would never come, and then when it did, I was just overwhelmed with peoples kindness, support and generosity!!

I am bummed that I didn't get a pic with all the ladies whom attended, but I do have pics of pretty much everyone there!! My MOH from my wedding took some great pictures, and to make matters even better, she came all the way down from Sudbury - 7 hour drive away!! It really did mean a lot that she took the time to attend, especially since we don't get a lot of time to visit. Hurry up and move home C!!! Do you think I got a pic of her? Nope of course not!

On to the details:

My sister tried her very best to stick to the same colors in our nursery, which is aqua and grey. 

My shower invites and game cards:

These were made by sisters neighbour, who actually runs an etsy shop called Crease Studios. The cards were adorable!!! They really did turn out great!!!

Each guest had to fill out the "who knows mommy best" quiz and wishes for baby. 

The cake:

Was made my other sisters neighbour!! 

What I wore: 

The gifts: 

The books: 

Each guest was to bring a book instead of a card, so Baby V's library is well stocked!! 

Needless to say Baby V was spoiled!!! We are soo grateful for everything we received!! The Moses basket above had been a family airloom in Mikes family for years, Mikes mom made the chevron cover for the mattress and she also made me the quilt!! Kelly gave the other homemade blankets!! Soo cute!!

Each guest was given a clothes pin with either a moustache or bow to determine what they guessed Baby V will be. Then they couldn't cross their legs or someone could steal their pin. It was funny how many people were stumped on the sex of Baby V! I guess I'm not the only one!!  But the guesses were once again right down the middle. 

Overall everything was perfect!! M, I and Baby V are so blessed with great friends and family filled with love and support. We are soo very grateful for the generous gifts we received!! 

Now I just need to get organizing everything, which I figure I will do after our babymoon this weekend. Crazy to think after this weekend we should have just about everything we need!! Then it is just organizing and waiting for baby!!
