Baby Shower Success!

Couldn’t resist a cheesy pregnancy photoshoot with Em and Jordy!

On Christmas Day 2014 I found out that I was going to be an Aunty, and, once I stopped blubbering with joy, I cast on for a baby sweater and started planning the baby shower. I couldn’t have been more excited if I tried! Emily and Jordan (you may know them from their prolific work as TCK models) kept their pregnancy a secret for 3 long months so I had to get busy. The shower was last weekend and it was a great success, we had games, activities, and delicious food. There is nothing like a gathering of family and friends to welcome a new person!

A young Emily groovin’ in her undies. This photo just screamed ‘Emily’ to me as soon as I saw it!

Adorable Jordy in suspenders and a turtleneck. A fashion statement that has held up!

The shower had sort of rainbow and photos theme. The photos were black and whites of Emily and Jordan as babies, as well as some obligatory cheesy shots of the happy pregnant couple. We strung the photos with ribbon and clothes pegs all over the house…I may have gone a bit overboard!

For food we went with a sort of 50’s theme (I know, we had too many ‘themes’). Crudites, tea sandwiches, and deviled eggs amongst tons of other goodies. We had an italian soda bar and Emily requested ‘bumps on a log’ – that’s celery with either peanut butter or cheeze whiz and raisins, for those who don’t know.

For activities and games we decorated onesies with numbers 1-12 so Emily and Jordan could take a pic of their little one each month until his first birthday. We played ‘guess what mum and dad would say’ (a word association game) and ‘guess that children’s book’. We also had each person write some words of advice for the baby to be on his 16th birthday. My favorite entry was ‘your parents might not seem very smart now, but don’t worry, they will be by the time you are 21’. Hilarious.

Jordan, hopefully his skills at baby books will improve!

There might be woolies in this box….

It was fun to see people get creative with their numbering!

I’m not sure if Jordy really is going to catch but Em is definitely ready to POP!

 

The happy couple were thrilled with the event and it really went off without a hitch. I big thank you to my parents and Emily’s parents who contributed so much to the day as well! Congratulations to Emily and Jordan, I am so looking forward to raising our babies together.
