The Baby Shower

We had our co-ed family & friends baby shower on Saturday. My Mom did an amazing job. It was so surreal to be celebrating our baby boy!

At the entrance to my parent's house

The seating in the backyard

I loved these cards. My Mom wrote questions relating to babies on one side and the answers on the other. She spread them on all the tables and all over the house. Everyone enjoyed guessing the answers. I learned that, on average, Dad's change diapers faster than Mom's do :) She also put cards in the buckets for people to give us advice on being parents. I was laughing so hard reading them after the shower. Such a great idea!

My best friend made lemon, carrot and chocolate cupcakes. So yummy. I cannot get enough cupcakes!

The food; chicken skewers, potstickers, ahi tuna wraps, mini sandwiches, crackers & cheese, fruit, veggies, salmon pastry puffs, and some desserts.

Soon-to-be Nana :)

Being silly with the bestie.
Our wonderful family and friends

I love the giant zebra. He and I matched :)

We got a ton of books! I'm so excited to read them to Grayson.

My sweet friend Jade made this for Grayson's room. Something about handmade items like this just melt my heart. She was so thoughtful and incorporated a few of my favorite ultrasound photos and the safari theme in his room.

 Today I had lunch with my family and then my Mom, sister and I went to the spa for massages. I could have laid there all day having my feet rubbed. You really appreciate a massage when you are 8 months pregnant :)
