Babies EVERYWHERE

In the last 4 weeks I have been to 5 baby showers one for Nicole, Miranda, Kim, Christy, and Jennifer. There will soon be three boys, one girl, and one unknown that will enter this existence we like to call life. Babies everywhere, tis the season, I guess.

I love little people and I love their parent's too. But the best part about showers is the food, I LOVE shower food. I love that it looks almost too pretty to eat, and that we put it on pretty little plates and have pink and blue and yellow everything. I love little favors that look like diapers with candy in them. I love that hardly anyone plays those silly games anymore. I love that we ooh and awe over onsies.

This is the food at Miranda's shower... Yummy!
There are lots of great things about showers but two things I'm not quite sure about are:

  1. I used the word "darling" in reference to a baby something or other. As soon as it escaped my tongue I cringed and thought to myself "I'm one of them".
  2. I still don't know how I feel about diaper cakes. I know they are all the rave these days, but why? They are cute and all but what's the purpose? Could someone please explain?

Wendy!!! How are you! You look GREAT! I haven't talked to you for sooo long! Is this baby shower you are talking about for "our" Miranda? Is she pregnant with number 2? Keep me posted! Thanks for always being a great friend!

It's me again! I have a favor...Melissa commented on our blog that she is coming to Hawaii. Can you ask her to invite me as a reader to her blog so that we can get in touch? Thanks!

OH Wendy, you are too cute! Had I known that you had to go to so many showers, I would have told you to stay home and take a break!!! Just kidding, I LOVED seeing you, and I really appreciate you coming down. Love your guts!

I have been to a few baby showers myself. I think that I share the same fondness as you do towards them. I had to play what's in the diaper a few times. I wonder why it's that a need to have game. Three or Four different people almost lost their cookies.

The food looked like it was yummy. Hope things are going well.
