The ladies took their inspiration from one of our "announcement" pictures and it was sooooo adorable! I certainly didn't expect this and was pleasantly surprised. Unfortunately, I didn't bring my "big girl" camera (cause I really didn't expect this) so all of these are from my phone.
It was a superhero theme with a female twist! My son LOVES superhero's and there are times when he insists that we call him by his superhero name and he even has his own super powers. I don't know why I didn't think of my little girl as a superhero as well. I know girls likes superheros too but it just never occurred to me that she might like them too. It was an awesome theme- I loved it!
Each of my co-workers wrote out wishes or super powers for our little girl. The link provided is a recap of all the super powers they gave her. I really hope she ends up with many of these...
Then of course there were games. We played 'name that baby' because well... our little girl still doesn't have a name yet. Everyone wrote their name suggestions and I had to guess which person suggested it. That was harder than I thought! And there were lots of similar names too, many of which are derived from our grandparent's names (which they requested to know before hand). And we ended up with some really cute suggestions! And as you can see I only got 3 correct... shameful, LOL!
- My husband did get a chance to come by which I was very very happy about. This guy is quite the charmer and had everyone cracking up with his Batman 'through the movies' impersonations. He does a pretty funny Christian Bale as Batman. He was super sick but came anyway (he said the short walk across campus nearly did him in) and for that I'm grateful (and still in love).
-We had lunch at one of the local restaurants that I had never been to. When they made the reservations they indicated that they had gluten free breads and pastas available but when we got there they only had gluten free penne (two of us are gluten free). One of the girls who made the reservations felt awful. I kept telling her not to worry about it (because we both still ate) but she really felt bad. I keep reminding her that she isn't the kitchen manager at that place and it wasn't her fault!
-We were gifted a few lovely items including a new stroller. I really wasn't expecting that! We are so grateful that they thought enough of us to purchase such a large gift. I was floored. And did I mention grateful?!
- I didn't want to cut my cake. If I had my way it would still be intact, LOL! It was so cute but there was something disturbing about cutting into a pregnant belly!
Here a small picture video recap. When I say small, I mean small. I didn't want it to be overwhelmingly long because who wants to sit through that?!
