What if I get several packages of bleached sposies or bottles or a copy of Baby Wise? THAT is what's scaring me about the gift opening part.
UPDATE!!! The shower was actually really great. Yummy food, homeade limey margaritas (I had my own virgin pitcher) and lots of beautiful flowers (I love flowers in the winter, the're such a rare luxury) I guess the invitations told people to bring books in lieu of cards. So, I got all of these wonderful baby books that everyone wrote personal notes in for the baby. I thought that was really neat. Also, my stepmom knew how nervous I was about opening all of those gifts in front of everone so she did this great thing. She handed out blank baby bingo cards and had everyone fill them out based on what they thought i would get as gifts, so as I opened each gift, if they had written it in their card they could cross it off. It took some pressure of me and it was fun for them to watch...... I got some great things (even a diaper shower from my mom !) and mostly just felt loved and celebrated...SO....the dread was all in vain. Still, it was alot of attention, I'm still recovering and I am glad it's over. Next Sunday my mom is having a blessingway for me...I'm excited for that. Gifts are only from the heart (poems, stories, etc)...so no unwrapping! She made me a beautiful belly cast that she mosaiced into a gorgeous picture of a woman breastfeeding her baby. She's giving it to me on Sunday so I'll update you mamas with a pic then. It's so beautiful!
Mama to my beautiful Ana Carolina (2/07), Isabel Cristina (6/10), and #3 on the way in August 2013!
