Back in May 2009, I was almost 8 months pregnant with Emma (my first) and my mother and grandmother threw me a baby shower to celebrate the impending arrival of our baby girl.
I was truly overjoyed and excited. She was our first and I remembered registering at Babies R Us right after I found out we were indeed having a little girl, when I was five months pregnant. I loved the thought of being able to dress up a little girl. My first purchases were pink and my baby shower was filled with more than enough pink for the pink lover in me.
Yes, I admit that I have always been a girly girl and the thought of having a daughter was music to my ears, because now I would be allowed legally to raise a princess in the making. And of course my baby shower was filled with tons of gifts that were indeed fit for my soon-to-be little princess.
Since, i didn’t blog back when this happened and I have been sharing Flashback photos every Wednesday, I thought it was only fitting and appropriate to show pictures from this very special day for our little family.
Sit back and as always enjoy!!
I don’t think this needs much explanation, then to say that even the cake had have pink on it!!
I was so blessed that our family and friends were so very generous and I must have opened up over 100 gifts that day big and small!!
Right after my shower was over, we came home with a few close friends and family. The car was unloaded and this was what the room looked like filled with all the wonderful gifts we received. It was definitely more than packed and a bit chaotic.
With a little help from my very good friend on that same night, we put the whole nursery together and sorted through all the gifts.
So there you have it, my baby shower and nursery just waiting for Emma to make her grand entrance. Hope you enjoyed and will be back next week with more Flashback Wednesday Photos!!
