Baby Shower!!!

I am more than just a little excited about the upcoming birth of my first grandchild-- a boy!!

My daughter is in her last trimester and every week that goes by makes it more exciting!!

Here she is a little over a month ago.
Two of Anne's longtime friends gave her a baby shower a couple weeks ago.

Emma and Jenny have been friends with Anne since high school. Actually, Emma was friends with Anne even in grade school. Both were in Anne's wedding, as the maid of honor and the matron of honor.

They put on just a beautiful shower.

Aren't these cupcakes adorable? They made them themselves!!  And the delicious looking star cookies too. (I say delicious looking because I can't eat gluten. But I can tell just by looking at these cupcakes and cookies that they were indeed delicious!

The table was beautifully set. And they even made sure there were gluten free hors d'oeuvres and sandwiches and plenty of things for me to eat. How totally sweet was that?

Look at this table. I love it.

And then there were the gifts, and the games, and the fun!

In the foreground: My good friend and Anne's mother-in-law, Colette, then Monique, my favorite niece, and Liz. 

Here on the left is my friend Diane, who is Emma's mother, holding Emma's youngest baby. I love these three generation photos.
The clothes are adorable even without him in them!

And some are so cute you can barely stand it! haha.

Zach is an avid Detroit Tigers' fan so Baby must have Tiger gear. (Thanks to my good friend Mary Ellen.)

 The baby books. Yes!!
 And Mary had to buy the little guy his first sports bag!
 Complete with little soft soccer ball, football, baseball, and basketball. (We were hoping for rugby, since Zach plays and coaches rugby, but football is the closest we could get.)

I love showers that include more than one generation, as showers usually do. The older moms learn about all the new fantastic baby products and sometimes share a little wisdom too!

 Young moms sharing their experiences.
Monique with my daughter Mary. Did I mention Monique is my favorite niece? (She's the only one, but she is, nevertheless, my favorite.)

Anne has such great friends. These moms will be a great support for her! And their children will play together!!!

So excited for it all to begin!!!!
