Tammy R's baby shower
This is the quilt I made for the little Eli. Just a quick little thing but it turned out nicely.
(The pictures are bad cuz I didn't realize it was on Manual!)
We had it in the gym of our church so the munchkins could run around with their bikes and scooters. It wasn't cozy but it was still good.
I didn't think to get pictures until people were packing up to leave.
Bobbi and the girlies, Bethany M., Andrea K. and munchkins, Taron D., Anna, Lindsay J and Mrs. R were all there. Oh and of course, big sister Elora and mommy!
I love me some Costco cake!! (It was Mommy-to-be's only request!)
We had the baby shower just in time. Mr Eli was born just a few days after!
This was my first baby shower that I helped plan. I didn't have a baby shower with Bee, and I'd only been to one before so it was really fun!!
And instead of gifts, Tammy wanted frozen meals. I thought that was a great idea for a second child baby shower.
I have mixed views on baby showers for second/third babies.
Sometimes I think you get one baby shower and that's it.
Other times I think that if you are having the other gender, you can have another shower.
And some more times I think that baby showers are suppose to be about celebrating the little baby's life...not presents...so why not have one. If you have friends that wanna give you a gift, they are going to whether or not you have a baby shower.
What are your guys' thoughts?
