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! They had a picture board that everyone signed and wrote nice messages on. Once baby is born, a family picture will go in and it will be framed 🙂 Love it!

Baby Shower #2

Decorating: the bathroom

We live in an apartment now with only 1 bathroom. After seeing this set at Target, we decided to pack up all our fancy “adult” bathroom decorations and set it up for baby. But who are we kidding… we love it too!!! Plus, it matches our entire theme of jungle/safari animals.

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!
