When we were surprised with the news of another baby joining our family, I never imagined we would have a shower. This is our second baby so we fully expected to do this on our own. Then, offers from so many sweet friends at church started pouring in. I reminded them all that this was our second baby and then they quickly reminded me that this is the first baby born while at Stetson.
Our widows ministry does a monthly gathering to have lunch and watch a movie. They sent me an email back in May saying that in September, they would rather "watch" me open baby gifts. The coordinator of that group, Ms. Louise, stopped me at dinner a few weeks ago and said "now that you know it is a boy, could you please register. These ladies are itching to shop!" It will be fun to share this first shower with such a sweet group of ladies!
Since I had forgotten to order the conversion kit (for down the road when we convert Micah's bed) when I ordered the furniture, I had to go back to Babies R Us to do that last week. I decided to take Jonah with me so he could "help" me. WOWZERS! I did not have enough energy for that! :-) The kid loved the scanner gun and wanted to scan everything in site. I had to contain him to the shopping cart and hand him things to scan.
I didn't finish because I needed to have my bedding with me so I could match colors for sheets, changing pad covers, etc. I'll go back soon but I'll either go alone or take reinforcement to help with "Mr. Scanhappy!"
