Bowie's Baby Shower

Today was Bowie's baby shower!

We had Clementine's baby shower when I was just under 8 months pregnant, I'm 9 months pregnant this time around but I wore the same dress again. It's hard to feel confident in clothes when you look like a sack of potatoes in everything you put on, so I really didn't want to go through the drama of shopping for something new to wear this far along in my pregnancy. I didn't try it on first (which I should have) I just assumed that since I was so much bigger last time that it would fit again, but a 9 month belly is a whole different monster than an 8 month belly no matter what size you are, and it's not even a maternity dress to begin with so it's not meant for any kind of bump really.

it was a bit snug in the belly, but I was lucky that it fit at all.

Big sister and little brother outfits! Clementine was stoked about these!
Me, my girlfriends, and all of our nuggets!
It was a really great day! I was kind of nervous about it because I'm somewhat reclusive and don't do well in large social settings, but it ended up being a very small group of people who I love dearly so I felt really comfortable.

Now it's time for more chocolate covered strawberries and some TRUE BLOOD! :D

  1. We had Rowans (2nd) shower today! I didn't take any pictures myself but Sara took some and my SIL took some. I do horrible in large social settings, and I didn't know half the people there!

    We had chocolate covered strawberries with cream cheese filling, but they got eaten and I didn't get any D:

    Looks like you had fun!

  3. To be honest I would have much rather had a small baby shower. I don't really like big parties very much either. It looks great though and the cupcakes look PERFECT! :)

  4. My babyshower was really small too. I had five friends (and the kids!) and it was so nice as I was able to relax rather than make conversation with a lot of people. I'm awful in big social settings too. I prefer a close-knit group!

    The dress looks lovely on you. And I completely agree with not buying anything at this late stage. I have to squeeze my 9 month bump in to a lot now, but it's not worth buying anything else when I could be in labour any minute!
