Baby Shower #1

As I drove to this baby shower I kept feeling like I'd forgotten to bring a gift and I had to keep reminding myself that this shower was for ME! I've spent the last 5 years going to and hosting baby showers for others all the while wishing that it was my turn. And now here I am reminiscing about my very first baby shower--it's finally my turn! K, her mom, L, and her SIL, A, did a great job--the food was great, the cake was adorable, the games were fun, and the gifts were plentiful. A made K and I corsages--mine said "Mommy to be" and K's said "Oven". They were so cute! Not only is K carrying our babies, but she worked hard to make today a very special day for me. I really am one lucky girl! Here are some photos from the day:












K was pampered a little today too. She received several gift certificates for spa treatments and other items in addition to the scarf I gave her. K continues to look beautiful. As my Aunt N said today K is "all belly":

On the way home from the baby shower we saw a huge, stunning rainbow spanning across the sky. My dear friend, D, said "aww, it's Myles ... somewhere over the rainbow". It gave me goosebumps to think of my sweet little angel Myles sending me a message on this special day. We stopped to take a photograph:

What a great shower! K looks just radiant, too! I would agree that Myles was there with you to celebrate the anticipation of his little brothers' arrival!

Continued best wishes! God Bless you all!!

You both look amazing. I always make the mistake of reading blogs in the am, when its too early to have such sweet posts to read- I started crying when I saw the rainbow. How amazingly PERFECT!

Kris said...

You and K look absolutely radiant in these pictures:) How fun for you to open gifts this time rather than give them this time! K is all belly and absolutely beautiful and you are a glowing mommy-to-be!

Niki,

I have been following your story for some time as I am a fellow SC..Im not sure if you remember me but we were on the IVF thread together :)

It brought tears to my eyes to see pictures of you at your long deserved baby shower. I am so thrilled beyond words that you are being blessed with two more miracles and cant wait to see the two little rascals!

Little Myles is always in my thoughts and heart as are you and your two little ones on the way!

Love Always,
Mikhaela

Niki! I'm so glad your shower went splendidly. That cake is probably the cutest I've ever seen, and both you and K are glowing. =)

You deserve all this happiness and more!
