Kaitlin’s 2nd baby shower

As I type this Kaitlin is basically due any time…. But I still have TWO baby showers to show you!

In mid-April, Julie hosted a baby shower for Kaitlin involving all of the old family friends from when she was growing up … all ladies that Julie just loves and have been part of Kaitlin’s life since she was little. And me. And I was invariably introduced around as “Andrew’s wife” …. But everyone loves Andrew so I guess it could be worse.

One of Julie’s friends finagled her the use of the community building as part of their neighborhood HOA … This HUGE room with lots of natural light, a kitchen attached AND all these tables and chairs included…. It ended up working out perfectly.

Plus it was only a mile or so from my new house, so I could head over early to help without having to set my alarm for 6a!

Julie did the colors in this bright blue and red …. with a cars/trucks theme on the cake and favors. SUPER cute for a little boy :)

The shower started at 11a or so, so we did lunch and a couple games before opening gifts.

That lion bag in the image below? About 5 people wrapped their gifts in one! They must have been on sale at Target :)

homemade quilt from Kaitlin’s aunt…

Joey’s room is jungle themed, and a LOT of the clothes Kaitlin has been getting are animal themed too … I kind of love this shark outfit!

I can’t believe Joey is going to be here any day!!

    Hey Andrew’s wife, thanks for all the help with the shower and for taking these wonderful pictures. You really were my right hand, helping me so much, watching out for things that needed to be done. I appreciate you so much, and everything went smooth because of your help and advice.
    Everyone at the shower knew Andrew growing up, so being introduced as his wife is like introducing them to someone precious. I’m pretty sure I said Andrew’s wife, Amy. (my mouth runs like a faucet though, so, I don’t know what I said, I probably rambled on and on, kind of like i’m doing now).

    I love you girl.
