Celebrating My Little Man: Highlights From My Baby Shower!

It’s hard to believe that my son was born just twelve days ago and my baby shower was only thirteen days ago! With my son’s unexpected early arrival, I’ve got my birth story and baby shower blog posts flipped. Surrounded by family and friends, I had a wonderful planned shower (in addition to my surprise shower) with a Little Man baby shower theme. Here are my baby shower photos and highlighted moments of the day!

    The little touches of macho mustaches made me smile; what made me chuckle was noticing that someone (who I promised would remain nameless) put the mustache decals on the balloons upside-down!

    My sister made me a stunning custom cake – from scratch no less! – to match our retro outer space nursery theme. She sculpted the rocket ship out of fondant and even airbrushed the cityscapes along the bottom!

    Guess the Onesie Baby Shower Game

    My shower game consisted of guests bringing a onesie that represented something about the giver; it was up to me to guess who brought which onesie! It’s much tougher than it sounds.

    And just to make things interesting, Nicole threw in one extra onesie to throw me off, but I guessed which one it was right away.
