222/365: A Baby Shower Kinda Day

Today is a day that I can't choose a POTD. There are several contenders because we had Safira and my brother's baby shower. Our sweet baby nephew is due in just a few short weeks... we are so excited!

For their baby shower we did a vintage baseball theme (well... vintage Phillies!). I have been SO busy with photo shoots and being a mommy (such a good busy to be!) that I wish I had had more time to plan and prep for this shower. Regardless, everything came together quite nicely.

Having Hannah with me, and being one of the main people to throw the shower, I didn't get nearly as many pictures as I would have liked, but here are a couple of the details.

The favors

A baseball for guests to autograph

Mason jars filled with flowers.... okay, nothing to do with baseball, but cute!

And of course the awesome invitation done by my mom
My mom did my invitations, too; her work is amazing! Check out her site. Some of the details I wish I took: hot dogs wrapped in tin foil, cracker jacks, peanuts, dubble bubble, and philly soft pretzels.

Here is the glowing mama opening a couple of the gifts!

Everyone was so happy to see Hannah. I wish I got a picture of her with each person! She was very mellow and relaxed until she got over tired. Woah can that kid put up a fight!! She went to bed as soon as we got home :).

With PopPop... this is when she was dead tired right before she started screaming for an hour straight!

After almost everyone left, I walked around my parents backyard and took a couple pictures of the sunflowers. Ya gotta love sunflowers!

Happy baby shower day, Michael & Safira!! That little boy will be here before you know it.
