Over the weekend, Baby Girl & I were spoiled with a Jellybean baby shower by our dear playgroup friends to celebrate her pending birth. These 5 friends I met when I was pregnant with my son in early 2009 and we’ve been together since celebrating all those milestones from births to birthdays. Baby Girl will be the 13th baby overall and 4th girl to join the group.
The theme came from my son’s nickname for his sister – Jellybean. Ok, so he honestly thinks we should name her “Jellybean Fire Hydrant.” I guess we better pick a real name for her soon! But back to the shower and the lovely job my friends did decorating for our afternoon tea out at the Washington Duke Inn in Durham.
They picked up on the nursery colors in all the decor from the invite to the diaper cake and the flowers. The party favors were cute little baby food jars filled with jellybeans and finished off with navy fabric and yellow ribbon.
Baby Girl and I were completely spoiled. Not only with gifts, but with a fabulous afternoon. As our children have grown and our lives changed in the last 5 years, I feel truly blessed to have moments like this – just us girls. A chance to enjoy and reconnect. They’ve helped me be a better mom and are always there when I need to share a funny story or a shoulder to cry on. The best of the best.
Thanks, girls, for everything. Especially your friendships. I’m so blessed and can’t wait to introduce you to Baby Girl soon!
