Co-Ed Baby Shower

Last Saturday was our first of three baby showers! It was a co-ed shower hosted by our good friends Leah and Lauren.  The people in attendance were our friends from church and small group. Mostly 20s-30-something guys and gals we've come to know and love over the last three years.

The girls went all out with this brunch baby shower. Seriously! I snapped a few photos so I could share the efforts they went through to make our party festive and fun. Just take a look!

There was french toast, a delicious frittata, yogurt and fruit, mimosas and beer (for the non preggo guests) and of course, cake! The morning started out with a few games and activities like taste testing and guessing the flavor of baby food, writing a message on a diaper for me to read during those middle-of-the-night changes, and a few others. Everyone seemed to have a great time.

The prizes for the games and activities were bags of Saint Frank Coffee, San Francisco's newest specialty coffee company. Sort of a big deal . . . and the owner is a friend of ours! I swear, we had the best prizes for baby shower games ever! (And I don't even drink coffee.)

Later on in the morning, we opened our gifts and I cannot tell you how blessed we were by our generous friends! We came home feeling a lot more prepared to have our baby home with us. Our friends are really supportive of us giving cloth diapering a try and our stash is well on it's way! We also received a lot of very thoughtful gifts, things I hadn't thought to actually register for like books and toys. Chris loved opening up the books and read a few of them right then and there! I think he's really looking forward to reading to our child (and probably making up a few stories of his own).

Thanks to all of our friends who literally showered us with gifts and love! We are so grateful!
