Baby Shower: Omaha-Style

Last weekend, the Gardner/Mango girls, Grammy Jan and Patricia put on a great shower for Cruz and I in Omaha - they rented out the Waterford Clubhouse and invited many family, friends and co-workers to attend. It was a great shower - gorgeous decor, yummy food and best of all getting to spend time with some relatives and friends I don't get to see very often....and of course, those we get to see a lot, but love seeing!

Once again, this little guy was absolutely spoiled by all of the gifts that everyone carefully chose for him and I really felt so much better after that day because we received so many items from the registry that we needed, plus it just puts me at ease to know that if he decides to make an appearance now, we will be prepared.

Hostesses: Britt, Carly, Marcy, Morgan, Patricia & Grammy Jan

The Grandma's

Pint-sized helpers for the day: Dayvaney & Liam

Gorgeous Cake

Opening gifts: personalized towel for Cruzer

Dessert table & gorgeous roses
After the shower, Mom, Tessa and Dayvaney came to our house to help me put gifts away and go through everything in the nursery. We washed up onesies, receiving blankets, washcloths, towels, socks - you name it - and figured out what drawers would house which items. We went through all of his clothes to figure out if we had enough sleepers and gowns in newborn & 0-3 months and organized the closet. It was so helpful having them there and asking their advice....I definitely wouldn't have figured it out on my own!

Nick and I are so lucky to have such great family and friends in our lives and we can't wait to bring Cruz into this world to meet all of these amazing people who already love him so much!
