Storybook Shower

My friends, Sharon and Yvette, hosted Baby R's very first shower this past weekend. Knowing me well, the theme of the shower was books. All of the guests were asked to bring a favorite storybook as a gift for Baby R. There were so many wonderful books. . . some I had never heard of, some were favorites from my childhood.

The first thing I did when I got home Saturday afternoon was plop down in the baby's room and started reading. Josh came home to find his wife sitting cross-legged in the middle of the floor surrounded by storybooks. He just scratched his head and gave me that look that says, "I love you, but I think you're weird!" Hahaha!

The shower was perfect. The weather was wonderful, the food was delicious and it was so good to see friends I hadn't seen in a while. Thank you, Yvette and Sharon, for your kindness.

(P.S. I'll try to get some pictures up as soon as my mom sends me the files)

That's so great! It's a perfect choice for you. My sister-in-law's baby shower in March was the same theme; it was the first time I'd ever heard of doing such a thing for a baby shower, but I love it. More people need to read and grow up loving literature!

Yeah for books! I'm all for getting them started with reading young. sometimes I have to remind myself that it's a good thing when my 18 month old brings me book after book all day long!
Sounds like a fun shower.
