Patty, Julie and I hosted Jacqueline's baby shower in Rockford this afternoon. We had a casual brunch with all kinds of foods, ham, bagels, egg strata, egg casserole, french toast casserole, quiche, fruit lasagna and more! Let's just say, it's too bad eggs don't make better leftovers. Our centerpieces were classic toys - I'm sure you all remember the rainbow xylophone, dial telephone, and rainbow stack'em toys. Patty also found some of Jeffrey's old toys to clean up and pass down to his son. There were also flowered centerpieces with baby booties blossoming from the center.
Jacqueline received many nice gifts - definitely a lot of cute clothes! I told her it frightens me to think how many clothes I may get since I'm having a girl and those cute outfits are even harder to resist buying. I just worry she won't be able to wear them all before she grows too big!
Here are the token belly photos. I think Jacqueline is far better at the posing than I, she belongs in a Motherhood Maternity catalog.
We also met the newest addition to our family - Chewee. This is Julie and David's new 4 month Papillon. He and Maggie got along splendidly. Although she couldn't roll and tumble with him, she was very curious about this new little cousin and loved to eat his food.
