Chattanooga Baby Shower

We got together with friends and family in Chattanooga last Sunday to celebrate little Lucy. My mom and brother hosted the shower (though what Randy did as a co-host I will never know!), and it was a great party. When I woke up Sunday morning, my mom was already hanging decorations in the living room and former dining room. She must have known I like a lot of decorations!

My grandma wanted to help, so she put the favors together: little boxes that said “Itty bitty hugs and kisses” with “It’s a girl!” Hershey’s Kisses inside and an “It’s a girl! lollipop taped to the top. They were so cute!

There was a dog that everyone signed. The funny thing is that Joe and my dad both signed it “Dad”. Haha. When Lucy’s born, I’ll write her name and birth statistics on it.

And, my mom got a large bottle like she did for Oriona’s shower that came with rattles. We put the advice everyone wrote for us in it, and we plan to read them every year on her birthday.

My mom had all my favorite munchies (well, except for the cheese, of course!), and the cake she got was the cutest cake I’ve ever seen. I loved it! My parents said the girl who made it was really proud of it, and she definitely should be. Joe took the picture before all the food was out, hence some of the empty bowls.

We got a lot of great gifts, like our Pack n Play, umbrella stroller, travel system and a bunch of other neat gifts. We also got two handmade blankets, which was awesome.

We also got a cute card with a gift from Ryan, Ori and Harry in Taiwan.

My grandparents from California were in town, which was such a coincidence, so it was neat being able to have two sets of Lucy’s great-grandparents at the shower. After everyone left, we took some family pictures.

It was such a fun day. I can’t believe I still have two more showers to go! By the time they’re all over, we’ll only have a couple of weeks until Lucy is due to make her appearance!
