I was totally stunned. I mean, who has a shower for a 2nd time mom?

They got me the Ergo Baby Carrier with the infant insert and the caryring pouch and the backpack, and also two outfits and a picture frame. And some yummy cupcakes.

I am still shocked. And embarrassed! But also happy! it is just crazy!

Awwwwww, that is SO nice! I'm so glad they had a celebration for you! Doesn't that make you feel great. Yay on the Ergo carrier!!And I just love surprises!

I don't know what to expect at work- they didn't do anything last time, although afterwards they did give me a few gifts at a luncheon they were already having for another reason. This time, since I am quitting the job, my boss did say something about having a going away party/baby shower so who knows....but I would hope, honestly, that after being there almost 4 yrs and working my butt off and losing tons of sleep over this job, that the least they would do is have a potluck- they do usually have a big party or lunch for anyone who leaves!

yeah I get that sort of embarrassed feeling when people get me stuff by surprise. How exciting! And bonus on getting things you'll actually use.

I wondered about the whole no shower for 2nd time moms thing. I know lots of people who have (including me but it was supposed to make up for the fact that I didn't have one the first time around).
