This weekend I celebrated the coming arrival of Beansy with my girlfriends and family! My friends were dear enough to throw a baby shower for me. I was really nervous. I'd only been to one other baby shower in my life but I should have been doing this all along because it was awesome! It was so lovely to be surrounded by such loving and supportive women. It meant a lot to me, especially being so far away from my Mom, my Grandma, and my sister. Plus, the girls had a special surprise in store for me. We Skyped with my family and magically it was like my Mom, Grandma, and sister were there! It was the best.
We got some lovely and thoughtful gifts! I feel more well prepared for the arrival of the Bean. Speaking of which, I need to finish organizing the baby room (pics soon!) and start packing our bags for the birthing centre... but a slice of leftover cake and a cup of tea sounds much better.
A HUGE thank you to Jess and Renee for making me feel so loved and throwing me the baby shower! I can't thank you girls enough.
