No, really. This one was fun. A couples' baby shower at a Chinese buffet that has some of the freshest food in town. No silly games. No streamers and frills. No horrid baby stories about the mother-to-be. No terrifying, and usually uncomfortable, labor pain stories. Just a bunch of friends sitting around, eating good food, and laughing. There was even cake!
As far as her presents went, I took pictures of ours before we left. I figured some of you would like to see. ;-)
I didn't have a lot of time to make things when I wasn't feeling terrible. So I bought some clothes. This one is my absolute favorite dress. I bought it to be worn next summer. I knew so many people would buy dresses for this summer.
I adore the smocking on this one! One of these days I will learn how to do that.
Then here's one for late summer, or mid spring new year.
A 3-pack of onesies. Can't ever have too many of those!
Now for the really good part! I did have some booties in my "stash" of baby girl gifts, so they got wrapped up too!
Slipper-style booties: pastel green polar fleece, trimmed in pink.
Crocheted booties: "Roman sandal"-style, pink bedspread weight cotton, trimmed in white.
Ta da! You knew I wouldn't give just bought gifts, didn't you? :-)
