Baby Shower 13 April 2013

"Do you want a baby shower?" - was all it took to put it into action, by my dear cousin and sister. These two gals are one of the best people in my life whom I truly can rely and depend on when all else fails. It was also this duo that helped me a tremendous deal through the organization of our wedding back in 2009, and made it fun for us.

Everything was planned by the both of them. All I was asked to do was to provide them a guest list for this shower. I didn't know how many to invite, so I just went ahead with my own estimation and 13 in total came for this party including me. I later on realised that they were planning for a small size of about 8. Oops!

It all turned out well though. I was happy they did this for me. I got to catch up with so many people and friends that I have not seen or heard from in a while.

 So everyone who arrives get a name tag. Mine was obvious.

And everyone got to write my daughter a diaper message. The idea was for her to wear them when she's out. My favourite message - " I like big butts and I cannot lie". We all had some home cooked lunch courtesy of my cousin for 13 people, after which they surprised me with a beautiful cake my sister picked up!

I'm really glad they did this for me. It makes me feel really special. And my daughter's already spoiled silly by all these aunties.

Thank you everyone for making this so memorable for me.

Thank you for supporting me and being with me through every milestone of my life.

I was initially apprehensive about meeting this many people since I have not seen anyone in a while, and I was pretty conscious about the total amount of weight I had put on. So much so Julien calls me his "little whale" now and sometimes "moby dick" just for variation. But who cares really about some bit of fat when they are more concerned about me, and are excited to see my daughter in the near future.

On behalf of my darling girl, thank you aunties. We are very blessed.

Why is there a ball pump in that picture?
