In preparation for my very own baby shower (unbelievable!) I’ve been reading what other bloggers have posted about their own experiences. I’m not sure what to expect and when I think about the baby shower. I’m most excited to be sharing some of my favorite foods with the best people around. So, to get me in the mood, here are some baby shower stories from around the web:
“Overall, I was amazed by how tribal it felt. Up until then, my pregnancy had felt individual and a little isolating (…), I suddenly felt bolstered and empowered by a community of supportive women who had been through all these stages before and were excited to meet my baby.”

“Baby showers come in all shapes and sizes and they all have different things that I love about them. But I have to admit that sharing the experience with your partner is pretty special. Don’t try this if you are going to have a traditional baby shower, the boys will want to suffocate themselves with cloth diapers if they had to come. But if feel like just making it a party, then there is no reason that fathers shouldn’t be there to celebrate the entrance into parenthood, too.”

“As a thank you, today I’m going to show you how to make these Thank You Baubles. Rather than just writing a card, you can make these little necklaces to send to friends with a thank you note to show how much you appreciate their gifts or for hosting your shower. The best part is, they are super easy to make but look like you spent way more time than you actually did! And your friends get a little keepsake they can use and wear regularly!”
