A Storybook Shower

IMG_0030_Layers_v1

Last Saturday I was down in Maryland to celebrate a baby shower for my sister-in-law and future baby nephew!  It was adorably themed as a storybook shower, with many of the food options based on some of our favorite childhood books.  We each also brought a book in place of a card to shower the momma-to-be and start a library collection for her little guy.  I am so excited to meet my nephew, and looking forward to introducing our boys so soon!  Of course, I had to get our last bump-to-bump shot as well.  It’s crazy to think that the next time I see my sister-in-law, we will both be moms!

Happy Bump Day 😉

It’s been a busy week here with long work hours, doctor’s appointments, a dinner date with a friend in town from Detroit, and more.  Hope you are all having a good one as well!

Monkey Business

When we came up with the name “Little Monkey” for our future babe, we never realized how much this name would take off!  When we started using the name, we didn’t know if we were having a boy or a girl.  Once we found out, we decided we wanted to keep his name a surprise until his arrival, so again the nickname, Little Monkey, stuck.  It seems that is has stuck with everyone else as well!  My mom, sister, and aunt threw us a beautiful monkey themed baby shower for our little boy, and I swear, I didn’t know this much monkey stuff existed!  Monkey cake, monkey diaper tower, monkey onesies (for many different months and hardly any duplicates!), monkey sheets, monkey towels, monkey blankets, monkey backpacks, monkey toys, and the list goes on and on.  At this point, it literally looks like a monkey exploded all over our living room.  Our family and friends have spoiled us with many wonderful gifts for our little guy.  We are so grateful and appreciative to have so many great people supporting us and loving us and our little one on the way.  And one thing is for sure…he is either going to really love or really hate monkeys at the end of his first year!  Here are a few photos from the shower.  Hope you enjoy!

The ladies behind it all! Thank you so much!

We had our second prenatal pediatrician consult this morning, and still have one more to go before we decide on a doctor for our little guy.  Had a good doc appointment yesterday, and it looks like he is growing strong!  Still working on “project nursery”, and think it’s going to take quite some time before it’s complete, so hopefully he continues to hang out inside for a little while before making his grand entrance.

Hope you are all having a great week!
