last week was party central around here. on thursday night my MIL threw me a lovely baby shower for all of b's family in the area [some of whom i swear i had never even met...thanks for coming, peeps!]. food was delicious, we got a ton of clothes for baby dub, and this is the sole photo representation i have of the night -- oops:
i think my stomach looks HUGE in that picture...maybe it's just the shirt? i hope?
THEN my wonderful friend erica threw me a shower on saturday for a few of my college friends. we had it outside and it was such a gorgeous day -- and it was so so fun to catch up with people i barely get to see these days. plus i have way better pictures because i gave my camera to a designated photographer [thanks britt!].
you can never go wrong if there's a delish dessert spread [and please note the adorable giraffe toy]:
my cute grandma, aunt & cousins all came:
everyone ate and opened presents and had a delightful afternoon just chatting and hanging out.
i have the most amazing friends! thanks again to everyone who came. little baby wells is already stocked up on tons of fun things...now his momma just needs to figure out how to get half of it to denver and how to store the other half until the fall. two weeks till colorado!
btw thanks for all your well wishes on my last dismal post...im still feeling kinda crappy but a bit better than before. i would also like to throw a request out into the universe that i stop being a veritable black hole for terrifying, depressing baby stories -- for some reason, last week everywhere i went i heard a super sad story about stillborn babies, dying newborns, families with tragedies, etc etc etc. i could barely sleep for two nights out of paranoia and a constant need to make sure this baby's still kicking. no one ever told me how STRESSFUL motherhood is -- so much to worry about and he's not even freaking here yet! oy. this is going to be quite a transition.
