Shower #2

Yay for more baby showers! Yesterday, our sweet church family gave us a shower, and we got lots more pretty things for Amelia. She has even more jewelry now, plus several precious blankets, a couple of diaper bags and tons of adorable outfits! We also got a few useful items like diapers, a wipe warmer, diaper champ and bottle warmer, plus her very first pacis! I think babies are so cute with pacifiers in their mouths, but I hope Amelia doesn't love hers as much as her daddy did when he was a baby. It was quite a traumatic experience for his parents to take it away, ha. I was a total slacker and forgot to ask anyone to take a pic of me at the shower, so all I have is the one sitting at the table stuffing my face.
Thanks to Erin for taking some pics, and thanks to all our church friends who came and brought gifts. Aunt Katie came even though she was feeling sick and Grandma Kathy (still don't know what you want to be called!) made her second shower appearance of the season. Can't wait to dress Amelia up in all those cute little outfits!
We'll have a weekend off this week before showers #3 and #4 next weekend and then the last one will be the weekend after that at my home church. Whew! I am getting tired thinking about it, but I will never be too tired to open presents! We are just so grateful for so many people who want to share in our joy and want to spoil our baby already.
Nursery pics coming up soon. Curtains will be hung this week and then we'll just have to put some art on the walls and then it will be complete. It is finally looking like a baby lives there now!
