My first baby shower.....

Today I had my first baby shower....
I must say it was a really strange feeling.....Don't get me wrong-I LOVED it! Tiffany[the hostess] did an amazing job but it just felt weird for me....Let me explain
This whole process has been a learning experience....and there's been so much to do. So at times I feel like I'm just going through the motions but can't see the end....That's how I felt today. Like I'm preparing for a baby, but there's no emotional attachment yet, no baby, and I don't know when there will be. So I felt like I was receiving gifts for something to come but no idea when that time will come...Does that make sense? I really enjoyed the shower a lot and got some really great stuff...it was just a different feeling than I've ever had. BUT I'm so thankful my wonderful friends came and pampered me with love, food, and gifts! This baby[wherever he or she may be] is already loved by so many wonderful people!
Below are a few pictures....
The decorations were so cute! AND the colors were perfect:)



Me and Mom
Me and Kristen[college friend]
Me and Amber[My Jamaican wedding bride AND friend]
Me and Sabrina[we are inseparable at work!]
Me and Amanda[next door neighbor and friend]
Me and community group girls
Everyone!
and just for fun....Me and my 2 pregnant friends:)
Thanks everyone for making me feel so special:)

I remember when my mom was given a shower for my sisters adoption. It ended up being after we adopted her, but it was so great that everyone came together for that special time. So glad you enjoyed your beautiful shower!
