We had our second baby shower today, thrown by my wonderful friends Kim and Karen, with Mandy helping on the flowers (of course!) and the super talented Jana and Matt of Jana*s Fun Cakes contributing our rad cake (just wait for the pictures below...). It was such an awesome party, we are so spoiled. Thanks friends!!
35 week bump! And it's hard to tell here with the tree in the background, but yes, that is another fascinator that I'm wearing. My mom found it and sent it to me, and I love it. It's black and feathery and fantastic. Thanks for my piece of flair Mom!
Okay, take a deep breath. The cake. Are you ready for it? Did I mention it's a red velvet newborn baby cake with the umbilical cord freshly cut?
Yeah... that's our idea of an AWESOME baby shower cake. Does that make us terrible people? And not only was it super creepy, but it was delicious. They did an amazing job.
And the face looks like her 3D ultrasound pictures! Look at that cut cord and bloody scissors. What that girl can do with fondant is incredible.
Her foot and little baby butt...
Jan took all our pictures by the way because Jeff can't be trusted to memorex an event with the camera. He did a lovely job.
Kim and Andy's backyard is so perfect for a party. They rented tables and chairs from the Mexican party store in our neighborhood which was perfect because we had such beautiful weather so everyone was outside pretty much the whole time.
Karen did such a good job with all the party decorations, and I stole a bunch to bring home with me, including this banner:
Joie and her new baby Jacklyn came!! It was so good to see my dear friend, and so nice to meet her new 12 week old baby. She was the sweetest thing ever, it made me so excited to have a little baby girl of my own.
If you didn't think I was an awful person for ordering the cake above, these next few pictures of me cutting into the baby cake might change your mind.
I gave her a craniotomy and was horrified/delighted to find that she had a mid-sagittal line of frosting between her red velvet brain hemispheres. So anatomically awesome!
This is probably where my camera battery died... more good times were had. Everyone promised to send me their pictures so I'll probably have more to share later in the week. Thanks again to everyone who came and partied!
