Baby Shower #3

Ok, third and final! This one was thrown for Steve’s side of the family by his sister, aunt and cousin (in law). Wonderful ladies!

We guessed how many pacifier candies were in a jar… and each gift was given a random number and when I opened that present, everyone had to mark

Baby Shower #2

Everything was given to us as shower gifts—thank you!! There’s even a hooded monkey towel that has a little tail on the back end!! I don’t have a picture of it, but it’s hanging in our bathroom. TOO CUTE!
