Over the past two weekends we've been lucky enough to have not one, but two showers thrown in our honor.
|The Bristol, CT posse (including G-Pa and the Godfathers)|
Our "friend" shower was a joint effort with many people pitching in. It was so wonderful and we felt so loved!
Our good friends (all of which Meg and I met through our gigs working in the Boston arts scene) came together to throw us a party. And we must say it was "us" to a tee (a baby T in fact <rim shot>). Grandpa Curtis came in from CT with cupcakes, adorable onesie cookies as baby shower favors and a boozy concoction called a Mamatini (virgin version was also served for Kate).
While opening the many lovely and heartfelt gifts from friends, baby shower bingo was enjoyed. Guests wrote in what they thought we'd receive on each square, which certainly got them invested in the gift opening! I think their cheers were louder than ours. "A BINKIEEEEEEEEE! Bingo!"
The onesie making station was a hit. Guests were provided with an array of onesies in all colors and sizes and iron-on decals ranging from LGBT themes to musical theater references... actually that's not quite a large range. But you get the point. By the end of the party we had upwards of 30 onesies for BGC made with love (and sass) from our friends.
Awash in pink and green, we were surrounded by family! Our sister Jess made a 3 layer cake with accompanying cupcakes. The whole place was covered in handcrafted decorations by Jess as well.
Meg's side of the family is also VERY talented in the Arts and Crafts department. Meg's cousin (and goddaughter), Laura, made this adorable elephant! We named her Barbra (mostly because, as Meg's parents are both Speech Pathologists, Bs are easy for babies to say early on), but I also like to sneak a little Babs into BGC's life whenever possible.
