Happy Panda is hosting a giant Baby Shower for Janice and Susan at 5m4m. They are twin sisters who
are were pregnant at the same time. Little Olivia was born this week and Sophia is due very soon! So, to join in the fun (and gifts!) of the shower, I’m going to share a little of my baby story! They’re asking everyone to share a picture of their baby bump, their birth story and even a l&d picture. (I don’t have one of those…)
I loved being pregnant. I felt beautiful even while my body expanded! It’s fun because everyone else is so excited. I didn’t even mind people rubbing my belly. I wanted them to love my baby! And I felt so loved at my baby showers. My sisterchicks threw me the most fun one–a pink & green shower. Everything from the decor to the food was pink and green to match Lydia’s bedding. The guests were instructed to wear pink to the shower! They even made a scrapbook–from everyone at the shower to Lydia. Each person signed it and wrote a note to Lydia about me. What a precious gift.
I remember looking in Lydia’s room after the shower–there was no furniture, just mounds of presents, gobs of giftbags! It was like Babies R Us had exploded in there. I loved looking at all the precious gifts. They were little pieces of love to me.
My birthstory was pretty normal. I had an check-up on Wednesday, they kept me because the amniotic fluid was low, my water broke Wednesday night. I started having contractions about midnight. And she was born at 9:31am. And I was in love. Here’s a picture of when we first got to hold her for a long period of time. You can see her little hands are still blue. The blood had not even made it there yet! She was brand new!
Anyway, that’s a little of my baby story. If you click over to 5m4m you can join in the baby shower by reading more baby stoires, sharing your story and hopefully win some fun prizes. (Uh, like a million fun prizes. Including a few of my favorite things I’ve ever owned. And a ton of stuff I wished I had.)
