Because it wasn’t practical for me to have a shower before Tateym was born, my sister-in-laws, Lisa and Kimberly, decided to throw me my first family baby shower. Tateym came with me and was the life of the party. Before I knew it Tateym was whisked away from me and was being passed around like a little doll. However, in the nick of time I rescued her and she went right to sleep in my arms. (That’s right, she knows who her mommy is.) We played some very fun and interesting games. One of the games was called “Guess What Made That Poopy Diaper?” Actually I don’t know if that’s what it’s called, but anyway it’s a game where Kimberly passed around 10 or so different diapers and inside each diaper was a smashed up candy bar. The guests then had to smell the “poopy diaper” and guess which candy bar was inside. We all got a kick out of that one. I then opened gifts, which were very thoughtful, nice , and useful. Lisa gave me a “diaper cake” it was a three tier structure made of diapers with baby spoons, bibs, and toys tucked in between. It was adorable. Next, we all made our way into Lisa’s beautiful kitchen and had a delicious lunch of either chicken noodle and taco soup in a bread bowl. Dessert was a wonderful pumpkin cake with cream cheese frosting. Thank you Lisa and Kim! Tateym and I had a blast!
