Diapers and Onesies and Bibs... Oh My!

Well folks, we have officially entered the third trimester! And a busy past few weeks it has been! Hopefully we'll get a little respite before "D-Day," but I won't hold my breath :)

At the beginning of June, we traveled to Tennessee for a real down-home shindig to celebrate the soon-to-be little ones.

As Nishka said, "Golly ya'll... thanks for the swell stuff!" (or something like that...). Thanks to all our great friends and family, we have made great strides in collecting the mountains of stuff that we are told will become invaluable to us in just a few weeks. But what about the cake, you ask? (because what's a baby shower without a cake!) Well never fear, we were well covered in the cake department! Check this out!

Isn't that adorable? The theme was Noah's Ark: Two by Two (get it?), and so we had a cake made to look like Noah's Ark, and then some delicious Cuffcakes ( - check it out when you get a chance) that had the little animals on them. So, I guess I don't need to tell you where Nish hung out the whole time ;)

And this picture? I just had to include it, because isn't he just so darn cute folks? This is Nishka helping write the thank you notes after we got home.

And then Nishka bravely faced Babies R Us for me. I wanted to make a trip to look at rocking chairs, cribs and the like, and so Nishka decided to try out some gear of his own.

Then yesterday, the kind peeps at my work decided to surprise me with a baby shower! We really got a lot of nice stuff from them (hint, hint all you NRCers that are kindly following my have competition now! Just kidding of course!) But check out this adorable cake!

And so it has been a few weeks filled with parties, cake, and shopping! Once the nursery is a little less bare, I'll be sure to post some pictures. And I promise I'll try to do better with the blogging!

Hope all is well with everyone! And Happy Summering!

  1. I know being pregnant can be difficult (especially in these hot summer months), but I bet all that cake helps! I hope you got lots of good stuff :)
