I know this is my third baby-but it has been a while since I have done this baby thing so my aunt wanted to give me a shower. I am glad now that she did. I don't really need anything in particular so we gave the guests free reign on what to buy. I have no other relatives in this state besides my aunt-but filling out the guest list made me realize that I have got some wonderful friends. I am 32 now and many of the women on my list have been my friends for years. It made me realize how blessed I am. ITs not a huge group of friends but the are the kind of friends who would help you in any situation no matter how dire. Right now here at my house still sleeping are my best friend and my siter and her girlfriend. They both drove in from out of state to be here. I don't even care what gifts I get-I don't think they realize what a gift it is that they are just here. I just had to share I because I am so excited about this shower-just because all my friends will be together and I am going to take tons of pictures!<br><br>

Oooh, that sounds sweet- especially getting to see some old friends and family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Let us know how it goes!

Hope you have/had a great time! I KWYM about friends and family, I really enjoyed that aspect of my shower (last weekend). I just wished I'd gotten to talk to each person a little more! (Kind of felt wedding-like in that way!) Though the gifts were helpful (this is my first), it was really secondary to getting to see a bunch of people who are wishing me, DH and the baby well. Plus it's fun to show people the belly! (I had to travel across the country for my shower, so I would not have gotten to see most of those people otherwise.) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

The baby shower was so much fun! One of my friends cross stitched a poem for the baby. My other friend put together a bag of all of the supplies I needed for my homebirth-including new towels because I told her that we needed 7 towels for the delivery and after looking in my linen closet I realized I only have 10 towels in the house LOL! My siter and her girlfriend bought me the one thing I really had my eye on but would never have asked for-the natural touch papsan swing. I had been having some serious swing envy after seeing one at someone elses house. I don't buy a lot of fancy gear but a swing can mean you actually get to take a shower! THe shower was so much fun they all came over to my house after and we ordered to much chinese and watched walk the line. Afterwards we told stories about our younger more stupid days and ended up in bed after 11:00. I am going to be so sad to see them all go this morning.<br><br>
oh and my mom made a baby quilt for this little guy! Ds #2 will want it bad because it has frogs on it! I will have to hide it <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
