Baby Shower!!

While I was in Texas, my mom threw a baby shower for me. It was all pink and white, very elegant, very perfect. She invited a dozen or so people who have known me for a long time and come from just about every circle of my East Texas life. It was wonderful to see everyone, some of whom I haven't seen in years. It was a beautiful shower and a special time to share with those who have had significant roles in my life. Here are some pictures and commentary on the evening...

The gifts went in the crib - an antique crib my father and grandfather slept in as babies. It was painted white, with pink tuille around the top edge - absolutely adorable!

Instead of cake and mints, my mom served petit fours and raspberry sherbet. It's all about the presentation!

Opening gifts... need I say more?

The gifts - I brought home two suitcases FULL of baby stuff. Oooodles of pink clothing! Scads of pink blanketry! Plus a variety of baby care washes and lotions and diaper creams - and a baby bouncer! Oh - and The Belly Button Book. Don't forget that. Nor the baby sunglasses. "Phoebe" will be the cutest baby ever. If she's not born that way, we will dress her that way and put sunglasses and cute hats on her and she will be the cutest dressed baby ever. :)

Did you have to check that crib on the plane?

Well, no, we left the crib in Texas. Lead paint and all - didn't think it would be a good idea for the baby.
