This weekend was my babyshower I'm always nervous when the attention is turned to me, but I was surprised to feel at ease the whole day! I only had about a dozen people show up, but we had great food and had fun just sitting around chatting for awhile I got TONS of awesome gifts from the people that did show up! Here are a couple pictures to show what we got! The crib is LOADED down with diapers, wipes and bathing supplies!

And in this one you can see more of what is inside the crib (you can't even see 4 BIG boxes of diapers that are on the floor in this one! (Well over 1000 diapers if you counted them up probably!) Oh yeah, and the blanket on the front (pink/grey) was made by a girl that works for DH! It is sooo pretty!

I would have to say my favorite gift was from one of our neices that is a nurse. She filled that pink basket with all the essentials for mom and baby postpartum including diapers/wipes, diaper rash cream, medicines, pads - for me, bottle brush, chapstick - for labor, pacifiers, and bathing supplies! Basically just a little of everything! PERFECT gift!!!

And of course since everything was going so well, I've started having contractions. I'm pretty sure they are real ones (not just BH), but luckily they are not real strong yet, and haven't been coming at regular intervals - yet I have an appointment on Tuesday, so we will see what the dr has to say about that on Tues! But after 2 days of contractions, my back is REALLY starting to get sore...Keep fingers crossed that little girl holds on a little longer!

WOW that looks awesome!! I am glad that I started buying diapers very early in my pregnancy because I did not get any at my shower lol. I LOVE the idea of a postpartum mom and baby stash that sounds like a great gift! BTW I love the blanket I have a pattern for a blanket like that but I could not get started lol

Yay, Amy!!! You got a lot of great stuff! I absolutely love the blanket. Hope your appointment goes well and the BH aren't doing anything just yet!

Yeah when I was asked what we wanted/needed I made sure that everyone knew that we had everything from our other kids still, but we could really just use the necessities that you tend to run out of alot, like bathing supplies, nursing supplies, an diapering stuff. We only got 1 outfit and 1 pkg. of onsies (which I really did need the onsies too) and most everything else was exactly what we needed...USEFUL stuff!!!
