Shower Recap

I have photos from my camera and photos from Ingrid's camera, so a few of these are repeats.

In a move that would make even the most thoughtful party planner say "Wow! What an excellent idea!" Ingrid picked all of the food from my Pinterest boards. Seriously. Everything we ate was hand picked by me. How amazing is that? I didn't even know.
Hold for the closer up photos.
How do you add to the excitement of a baby shower? Give wine to the expectant mother (adoptive moms only!).
I wish I could go back for the food.
This is us after the shower. It was so much fun, but also pretty awesome to be over with.
We got the rug for SuperBaby's room, and Amico was excited because it makes it easier for him to sit in there.
Ingrid had a quote game going on and this is one of them. It so made me cry.
I was overwhelmed by the generosity of our friends. It is such a blessing to have such wonderful people in our lives.

The onesie station. I was impressed by the talent of our friends! (Talent not pictured.)
The guest book is this awesome frame that will go in the nursery and will feature a newborn photo.
Alright, here is the food.
Appletini punch and specially decorated waters.
Enough said.

These are the most amazing things in the world. We kind of made an agreement that Ingrid would make these for me when I got pregnant. Close though, right? Seriously, they're delightful.

Festive balloons.
Gifts for the baby!

My brothers handmade cards for me. I love when they do stuff like that.

Me: "Gosh Ingrid, did you have to wear the same exact boots as me?" Ingrid: "Yes, Whore. Just sit there, open your presents and get over it."

It really was a pretty amazing day. SuperBaby got lots of amazing gifts and I feel all that much more ready to be a mom. The whole shower thing made it really feel real. Opening the packages and cutting tags off of clothes, realizing that we're really going to have something that small in our house and that we're really going to be parents. We've always been excited about the adoption, but it's less of an idea now, and more of an OMG reality. We're really doing it and we're really going to be in charge of another human. Lord, help us.

I'll end with my favorite quote from the whole day:

"Little souls find their way to you, whether they're from your womb or someone else's". - Sheryl Crow
