It's Raining Babies!

That's what baby shower means, right? Haha :)

Last weekend, my mom, my sister Katie and I threw my sister Mary a baby shower. She is due at the end of May and we are all so excited to meet "Baby J" (as-yet unnamed, and likely not having a name starting with "J"...we're actually not sure where the nickname came from!).

We had some games, good food, and great times with friends and family.

Mary looks BEAUTIFUL and has such a cute baby bump!

Here are some pictures of our day!



Mary's mother-in-law gave her some really sentimental gifts ~ a pooh bear that had been Jason's (Mare's husband) and the locks of hair from Jason's first haircut! It was so sweet :)


Go Bucks!


A hand-stitched blanket from Jason's aunt:


"Mary had a little lamb"


Maya wanted to help open all the gifts.


Grandma with a soundly sleeping-Charlotte...apparently all that partying wore her out!


The group:


Grandma and Grandpa with Maya and Charlotte, and Great-Grandma Sugar:


Great-Grandma Schaub with Maya:


My mom made a diaper cake ~ it turned out so awesome!










Mare with the girlies:




Maya was a very good guesser in the "how big is Mary's belly" game!


Grandma Schaub apparently thought it was twins! :)


Caitlin, too!

Maya wanted to see how big her own belly was, as well:


Charlotte gettin some love from Aunt Katie:


Yum!


People were so generous! "Baby J" will be well dressed, safe, clean, and comfy!


The whole gang:


Mare, Charlotte, me, my mom (sorry mom ~ your eyes were closed in both pictures!), Maya, and Katie:


Isn't she lovely?






Congrats, Mare! Love you!
