Baby Shower Number 2!

Today was my non "surprise" baby shower and it went great! My mother in law and future sister in law were the one's who planned and hosted it and they did a wonderful job. It was a lot of fun and everyone once again was so generous with the presents. Unfortunately the gift registry at Target wasn't working properly and we ended up with double and even triples of certain gifts. Luckily people saved the receipts and there is still stuff we need that we can purchase with store credit. Along with shoving our faces most the time, we played three games for prizes. One where my crafty mother in law made a diaper cake and everyone had to guess how many diapers were in it. The second was an awesome baby food tasting where we had to guess what flavor of baby food was in the jar. (I always wanted to know what turkey and pea mush tasted like.) The third was a "guess how fat mommy is" ego boosting game where everyone cut a piece of ribbon that they thought was close to the size of my belly around. Most people were off by two or three inches and one person got it spot on. My darling husband, however, cut about eight feet of ribbon. I'll never forgive him for thinking I'm that big. I didn't take as many pictures as I would have liked to but here are a few that I thought I'd share. For some reason I looked disgusted in all the ones of me opening presents, so I left those out. (I assure you I wasn't grossed out or offended by any gifts given!) Hope everyone enjoyed their Sunday as much as I did!

Adorable cupcakes
69 diapers were in the cake! I guessed 45.

Delicious baby food! Mmm...

Okay, you can't tell how many presents are there but they're stacked and people put a LOT in just one bag.

Looks like fun! I love the chairs! :)

LOL at your husband cutting a huge amount of ribbon to measure around your belly. That's funny, but I can see why you wanted to kill him! :P

Sean it looks like it was perfect. I love the diaper cake. Im so bummed I had to miss it :( I don't know if our gift arrived yet but it should have came yesterday or today. I'm sending Dom to work tomorrow with your card from us. So sorry I missed it, I wouldn't want to get a pregnant woman sick!!!

That looks like a ton of fun! SO CUTE! I love diaper cakes! The cupcakes are adorable. My favorite is the pictures of you though. You are one hott mommy! You are getting closer to the end! Hang in there! That's awesome about the ribbon and your husband. Aren't husbands the best sometimes? Ha ha. Love it!

Sounds like a good time!
Your diaper cake was super cute. We played the 'guess my size' game at my shower. It was my least favorite game.
Love the pink chairs.

How fun! I love baby showers and it looks like you had a great one. (I was shopping for wallpaper today for a project in our living room, and all I could think about was your blog's background. Haven't found one that I like yet, but I'm keeping my eyes out for something similar.) :-)

Glad you were "showered" with love, attention, and gifts. It makes it very real once you have all that baby stuff in your house huh! Your little one is just around the corner, enjoy these last few weeks :)
