Baby shower

In April my mother and sister threw a baby shower for me. Here are my Mum Lorraine and sister-in-law Jen with the decorations Mum put up - the signs read "Let's celebrate Baby Drew". 

We had a lovely supper. I had to take care of a doll for the evening, as practice. Thankfully the doll did not cry or need its nappy changed.

One game involved tasting a variety of baby food options and trying to guess what was in them. Everyone who played decided that bought baby food was revolting! The only kind of nice one was berry and apple. Homemade baby food, here we come!

My sister Janelle served punch in a unique bowl!

Of course, there was "one of those games" that involved guessing my tummy size. Guests broke off the number of toilet paper squares they thought would measure baby and me. 

I was allowed to leave my baby in the care of others, and often made use of their willing arms. Yvonne is expecting, so she needs some practice :).

I am thankful for the friends who attended, for those who brought food, for the effort put into organising the shower, the presents, and especially for the special prayer time we had. 


  1. I haven't been able to visit here in over a month and wow...I missed alot! What a wonderful blessing your shower was! I'll bet you are getting excited to hold the real thing!!! Will keep you in prayer....

  2. How fun! Looking forward to your baby announcement: sorry you couldn't oblige for the 4th May! lol

    Blessings and prayers,


  3. That looks lovely! Sherrin, will you pass along my congrats to Yvonne?
