First things first was the wonderful baby shower that Mum was here for.
I woke up on Saturday morning with almost butterfly-like feelings in my tummy. It was my first baby shower. My Mother-in-law, Sister-in-law and my Mum had been in cahoots to plan the event ever since we knew my Mum could make it over for the event.
It was a mix of family and family-like-friends. It was a special time. My Mum brought over a bunch of British chocolate and sweets (not sure how it all fit in her luggage) which were mixed with some American candy on a table decorated with Union Jack bunting and Star spangled banner lanterns. The table was a great conversation piece and guests were invited to make up candy bags as party favors.
My Mother-in-law had commissioned her friend to make a special cake for the event. It was lemon raspberry and so delicious. My favourite part of the cake was the little sugar figure pregnant me.
I am so glad that before she left we were able to pose on the finished window seat cover. It is just perfect, it makes the window seat such an inviting place. I cannot wait to sit on there are read stories to our little man. At the shower., one of Jeremy's cousins gave us a recordable story book of 'Goodnight Moon.' Before she left my Mum recorded herself telling the story. I know she did it for the baby but I think that I will have to listen to it a few times when I am really missing her. I am glad that it is only a couple of months until she is here again.
