Last weekend, my good friend Cat hosted a baby shower for me at her apartment. It was a brilliant afternoon filled with sunshine, good friends, good food, and plenty of fun!
I didn't have a proper baby shower when pregnant with Liam due to moving from New Zealand to Malaysia at the time, although I did have a lovely afternoon tea back then, organized by my friend Kim in her garden, together with our hubbies and my sister-in-law.
This time around, Catherine, together with the help of another good friend Michelle, went all out to throw me the kinda shower I've only ever read about or seen on TV. She'd decorated her living room with streamers, balloons and yellow ducks, prepared a whole lot of delicious food and snacks, organized drinks and we even had baby shower games!
There were plenty of gifts for Baby N including some items that were on my Baby Wish-list awhile back, and a beautiful Nappy bouquet as well as a Nappy cake! They all looked so pretty I almost didn't want to open any of them - almost - except opening the gifts are a ritual at baby showers too.
No matter how many more months or years this German adventure may be, I'm truly glad I've had the fortune to meet some of these lovely, amazing women along the way, and to be able to call them my friends. This baby shower is definitely going down as a personal highlight of my time in Germany. Thank you all again for such a wonderful day!
