Baby Shower #2 | Anchors Aweigh


Baby Shower #2

I had my second and final baby shower just before Christmas on December 18th! It was thrown by my sweet Virginia friends, and I was so excited! I really appreciated them throwing it before Parker got back, and it ended up being the most beautiful 65-and-sunny day. My friends kept joking that it was the perfect day to throw me a party because they know how much I love weather where you can wear shorts. They know me so well! 

The amount of effort they put into every little detail touched my heart and made me realize how truly blessed I am to have such a wonderful support system on the East coast. I love our city and I love our squadron for giving me these sweet friends. 

Baby Phelps was so spoiled and loved on! He received so many cute little outfits, books that I can't wait to read him, and lots of necessities for those first few months of life. I so want to show all of the adorable decorations, but they have his name written all over them. Since we aren't ready to share that yet, I'll stick to the pictures I can post! ;)

Here's a group shot! So many bare legs on December 18th... best weather! Of course, it was freezing the next day. 

The food spread was on point! Baby and I ate our little hearts out and didn't regret it one bit. 

This girl makes the best Italian Wedding Cake. She also happens to have a heart of gold and be one of my absolute favorite people. Love her!

This was one of my first friends in Virginia and also one of my favorite people! She is the other mama of the group, and I've loved watching her babies grow up. We are excited for playdates when my little guy arrives!

Time for gifts! Baby Phelps is going to be the smartest little man with all of his books. I can't wait to read them to him! The rocking chair is set up and the books are on the shelf... all we need is him!

I'm so thankful for friends that have become family. I felt so blessed getting showered with love for our little guy. He is one lucky little boy to have people who love him both near and far.

I'm so glad that you were surrounded by so much love and support while Parker was gone.

"Blue Hat, Green Hat" is one of my favourite Sandra Boynton books! All of her stuff is clever and adorable. :)

Yum! There is so much to drool over. Ladies, all of you look amazing and as far as I have seen this is one of the best baby showers. I will also book one of the San Francisco venues for my sister’s baby shower and am also thinking about keeping a theme for it.
