We celebrated new life with two of our Jaycee moms this week. Anna Lucas and Amanda Wilson are both expecting baby boys, though Anna is due in October and Amanda still has a few months until her December due date.
The baby shower was a lot of fun. We rarely have time to just kick back and enjoy each other’s company without worrying about what project is coming up next and what must be done immediately or the world will collapse. So just sitting around the table with friends was a refreshing change of pace … and who doesn’t want to talk about babies? (Okay, perhaps people without children – but they need the heads up!)
The theme for the shower was paper, so we showered Anna and Amanda with diapers and wipes … two things you can’t live without when a newborn enters the pictures. Two of our members turned up the talent factor: Shannon made two gorgeous diaper cakes and Dana crocheted two soft and fuzzy baby blankets.
Suffice it to say, we’re all very happy and excited for our Jaycee moms. And we’re already to cuddle those sweet new babies … when they’re ready to be born!
