Last Sunday we had our second babyshower/cookout party (G's work family threw him a surprise one earlier) and it turned out great. Although the weather was a bit more gloomy than we had hoped for with a sharp chill in the air, it didn't stop us from following our plans. Our friend Nicole gave us her big yard for the day and everyone brought their pups, including our Bentleys of course, to celebrate their human brother coming soon and to run around and mingle together all afternoon. G cooked fajitas on the grill, along with spanish rice + beans, and his famous homemade salsa and guacamole that was gone in an hour. There were beers, babies and babes and even though I couldn't drink I had a good time. Plus someone had to drive my over-enthusiastic husband home who may have celebrated the babe just a little too hard. It's one of his last chances to do it for awhile though, so I'm not mad about that. We got lots more clothes, cards, diapers (both cloth and disposable), and even a baby food processor! G is so excited about that one, being a chef. He's been talking about making the baby his own homemade food since before there was even a baby in question. I loved seeing so many of our friends from different groups, ages and even states come together to celebrate this little boy in my belly, and I can't wait until he's here in just 3 short weeks to meet them all. Plus all of these new things have me so much more anxious and excited for him to come so I can dress him in his adorable clothes and read to him with his new books and watch his face light up when he rattles his toys. I am so thankful for our friends!
