As promised...

The shower!
A few days after I got to Louisiana I had a baby shower - so much fun! It was perfect, tons of friends I haven't seen in a long time, delicious food, and lots of pink baby stuff. Here's some pictures...

I was so happy to have both of my grandmas there! 
The party planners - thanks again! Everything was so fun!
I LOVE the little hats and headbands with the huge flowers/bows. So cute on a little newborn's head!
Really cute (and surprprisingly super soft) Levi's outfit - jeans, shirt, and jean jacket.
Soft bear rug from my mom- These girls held it for the rest of the shower, it's too soft to put down.
Here's everything - look at all the pink!
Since we've used the extra bedroom as a storage room, and we don't really have anywhere else to put our 'stuff' (Calder uses that closet for his dress clothes and the dresser in there is filled with winter stuff and miscellaneous computer stuff) Anyway, he turned one of the bookshelves into a closet thing.
(I had a picture but my comptuer is apparently no longer reading SD cards, I'll figure it out later)
We took out one of the shelves and put a bar across to hang all the baby clothes. I'm trying to find some cute baskets/boxes to put everything else in. It looks really cute and nice to have everything accessable. 
Calder is a little sad to part with his books but I've assured him that he'll see them again someday, and he can always walk to down the hall to our storage room and look at them if he needs to.
I'm a little behind on posting belly shots... this was last week. Let's call it a 21 week picture. I feel so much bigger.
(what happened to the spell check button at the top?)

Loving the shelf! Perfect....I'm cracking up at the random things, though, like the Glen Beck book and the box of colors! haha

Haha - it's still a work in progress. The other half of the bookcase is our stuff. Calder suggested that we keep the colors for the baby to use - I'm thinking by the time she's able to color that we can buy her some fresh ones. (He did say that he thought a baby could scribble on paper at 3 or 4 months...I'd like to see that!)

gwen said...

With your collective smart genes, I guess that could be possible....haha (He probably thinks that because he was so impressed with the book you wrote and illustrated at age four!) LOL -

It's precious Ivy! But be aware, baby stuff takes up a LOT of room, and some of the gadgets you don't need at all so choose wisely. :)

Oh and as for the party planning, that was fun - glad we knew it's a GIRL in time for the shower!!
