This was during the week that mom came to visit before the rest of my Utah family came up, so she got to be at the shower too. She had a hard time letting go of Ty so everyone else could hold him.
Ty slept for most of the shower.
Everyone had a fun time holding him. Kathryn, my former sunday school teaching companion, informed me about breast milk helping with baby eye gunk. She was right! Ty had lots of gunk in both eyes, and mother's milk always made it dissolve and take longer to come back.
Here's my visiting teachette Corinne. She was about 20 weeks pregnant with her second baby. She's due next month.
And Cari holding Ty like a natural with her little boy Liam.
Waleska (left) took all these lovely pictures and Marianna (right) helped out with the games and the food.
We played some shower games, including fill in the blank nursery rhymes and guess the candy bar in the diaper. It was hilarious seeing people sniffing what look like poopy diapers!
Ann Wilson gave me a cute boppy cover and hand painted this adorable Tyler sign that hangs over his door.
Cathy Watkins gave Tyler a baby towel and a hat. Even though the hat says infant, it nearly fit me!
Marianna bought Ty this adorable baby gym, and Wendella Porter send this cute crocodile outfit.We had a great spread! Marianna made the punch and Lia picked up a delicious cake. The frosting was slightly salted, which I loved! It had "raindrops on roses" to go along with the theme.
The food was delicious! Marianna made "crisp apple streudel" and a breakfast lasagna, Cari made french toast kabobs and cinnamon rolls, and my sister made the lovely fruit bowl coming out of the watermelon.
It was a great shower! Thanks Cari, Marianna, and Malia for making it happen, and thanks to everyone for coming and for the all the great gifts.
Several people from Oscar's work sent gifts including the picture frames on the left and right. Oscar's brother Will and his wife Camille sent us the one in the middle.
I'm not sure about this outfit (complete with bib), but I believe it was sent by someone at Oscar's work.
Mike and Shannon bought us this wipes warmer, several outfits, and some cute bibs for when he's eating solids. Josh and Rebecca Robertson and several others gave us baby diaper care products.
We were given another expensive thermometer, so we took it back and got loads of baby wipes. We can never have enough.
And several people gave us bibs, burp cloths, receiving blankets, and hats. One gave us matching hats and bibs like the ones above. They also match some burp cloths and mittens we had already since Gerber reuses the same designs. I'm sorry I forgot to record who gave us everything, but thank you so much everyone. It is all greatly appreciated!
