Maryland Baby Shower - 2/5/11

It's been way too long since the last post, but it's been a crazy month and a half!  Jeff and I have been busy not only preparing the house for our imminent arrival (only about 6 1/2 weeks to go - yikes!), but also enjoying house guests and baby showers, and spending some quality time together.  Over Martin Luther King weekend, we went down to the Charottesville, VA area and stayed at a lovely B&B for a couple of days.  It was nice to just enjoy each other's company, without the stress of our everyday lives.  And since the B&B didn't have TVs, radios, or computers, we certainly got to spend plenty of time chatting, reading, and relaxing. 

Rachael (Jeff's sister) came to visit us the last weekend of January and she was a HUGE help in painting the nursery and our den/office.  Since paint fumes aren't great for pregnant women and the physical act of painting is a little more difficult at 7 months pregnant, Rachael was a lifesaver.  It would have taken Jeff twice as long to get everything done.  Now the nursery looks great and we only have a few things left to do in there before it's "finished".  Stay tuned for pictures of the nursery to come, once it's REALLY completed.

And now I finally come to the first weekend of February and the real point of this entry- my Maryland baby shower!  It was so amazing.  My mom, sister-in-law Brie, mother-in-law Felicia, and Rachael all came in for the big day, as did my college roommate, Lisa Munger.  In addition to my family, there were women at the shower from all different parts of my life - work, synagogue, our "posse", and even grade school.  The day was unbelievably special and I feel so blessed to have such amazing women in my life.  Our sweet boy is so loved already!  Here are a few of my favorite pics from the day.
