Lots of friends joined us last weekend for a very fun and memorable baby shower. There was baby food tasting, Scrabble tile baby naming, name-that-young-celebrity games, lots of laughter, cupcakes, snacks and hot apple cider. Our friend Debbie made her famous artichoke jalapeno dip that is so indescribably good, that I can’t describe it. With all the fun and warmth in the room, I’m surprised the baby didn’t want to come out a little early to take part. We are very grateful for the welcome our baby girl is receiving.

We are inching towards being more prepared for the arrival. We miraculously figured out how to put together the crib… so that’s a start! I hate when directions say to use C3 to link P2 and P6 in the text- but then the diagram shows C3 linking P2 and P5… and there isn’t even a piece labeled P6. I also hate when there’s extra pieces at the end, even though you followed all 46 steps. If I ever end up doing premarital counseling (as the counselor) I think I will have the couples build a crib together. After that I will tell them if it’s going to work out or not… or maybe they will decide for themselves after the experience. Couples that can survive building furniture together, can ____ (you fill in the blank… almost anything goes!).
