Tuesday, they threw a baby shower for me at work. It was such a sweet gesture by my co-workers, and I was again overwhelmed by the generosity of people.
A few of my students helped set it up and one of them even made the most beautiful cake with a fondant ladybug on top! It was amazing and again, I feel so blessed and lucky to have the life and friends/co-workers/students/family that I have. Jamie is going to be part of a wonderful world, and I couldn’t be happier for her to get here and meet them.
No seriously, I couldn’t be happier for her to get here and meet them. My sciatica has got me in so much pain, I’ve actually felt sick most of this week. My severe edema (my midwife’s words) is making my fat little snausages burn. The acid reflux is well, you get the idea….
But, back to the baby shower. It was so wonderful, and a beautiful ending to a long school day! My generous co-workers got me even more beautiful gifts for Tiny. Many of them were things that were on my registry and I hadn’t received, yet. I now have a bumbo, an activity gym, a baby backpack (as Matt calls it- that one is his favorite), toys, burp cloths, bibs, a bottle sleeve (It’s like a coolie for a baby bottle), a cart cover, etc….
Check out the ladybug that was at the top of the cake. I’m going to freeze it and do something with it. I don’t know….maybe we can take it out on Tiny’s first birthday… (It’s missing antenna’s- they stayed on the cake.)
Here’s a little peak at some of the gifts my coworkers got me.
