I'm so glad shower games have progressed beyond the "guess how big around she is" and "guess how much she weighs" games we played at my showers! Instead we played along with Katie as she tried to guess how Rob answered 14 questions ranging from "how many diapers will the baby go through in a day?" (10 they both said), "will the baby have lots of hair, no hair or some hair?" (lots they both said) and my favorite one of all "which trait of Katie's do you hope the baby gets?" (her smile! how sweet!)
I didn't take any photos of the gifts, but we all ooh'ed and ahh'ed over cute, practical, fun and handmade. Not counting Sara (who gave Katie handknit tend gifts before she left), there were seven knitters represented (I think) and my sister-in-law quilts, too. I counted four hats, including a game day white and gold striped cap, two sweaters (one from me), a toy pig and a play quilt.
For decorations, they used baby photos from Katie and Rob.
I think "lots of hair" was a pretty good guess...Rob had really blond hair as a baby, but there was still plenty of it!
They also hung newborn onesies. It's hard to believe a tiny person will be wearing those is just two months.
The food was delicious. Vegetables and hummus, fruit and cheese, pimiento cheese sandwiches, sweet potato biscuits and savory cheese scones...and strawberry cake with cream cheese frosting.
and with me.
...and a few peeks at the little sweater I knit. The first of many, I'm sure.
It was all a lot of fun and I am so glad I got to share the celebration with Katie, her friends and mine.
(and now I'm in Madison...stay tuned for more "moving to Madison" posts...soon!)
