WE ARE SO EXCITED!!
Tim and I are beyond excited to become an aunt and uncle! We're so excited we threw a party.
It started off as a baby shower, but then it couldn't be just for girls because Tim HATES gender-specific gatherings, LOVES this baby, and would never stand to not be included in this. So it became a co-ed baby shower. Then we decided to ditch the traditional baby shower games, so it was a co-ed baby shower with no games...and by then it was starting to not seem like a baby shower at all so we wondered if we could bring wine? Amanda didn't have a problem with us toasting to her baby so we just decided to turn it into a dinner party with presents for the baby and wine for everyone but Amanda party.
And it was a blast! Girls, when you get knocked up, come to me. I will throw you this kind of party.
We normally have a big flat screen TV sitting atop this credenza, but I didn't want it's foreboding presence in the room during the party, so it was banished to the guest room and I thereby gained enough room for 4 people to sit! Win.
And since we needed a picture of the four of us together, here we are clutching confetti and then throwing it everywhere:
And don't worry. As soon as this baby is born I will plaster his or her picture all over this blog for years to come.
