Surprise Baby Shower

If you follow me on twitter you may remember me talking about if I wanted a baby shower or not. I was in two minds about it all. When I was pregnant with Paige, Mark organised a surprise baby shower for me at our house. It was such a lovely surprise but I didn't expect him to do it again this time. I know that some people don't bother having a baby shower for their second baby but apart of me wanted to, mainly because I wanted my pregnancies to be as equal as possible. Sounds silly I know. Anyway my lovely best friend was reading my tweets and text me to say that she was organizing something for me but it was a surprise so I'd have to wait and see.

At 35 weeks I finally got let into the secret, well kind of. She told me that she would pick me up and we would go out for a meal to catch up. I was so excited. We arrived at the restaurant and sat outside were some of my friends. It was a total shock.

After I was over the shock we all went inside and sat down. We had a lovely meal, chatted and played games. It was lovely to relax with old friends and celebrate baby boy.

My friend even had personalised chocolate bar wrappers made and also put together little thank you boxes for guests which were filled with sweets.

Baby boy got given some very lovely gifts and clothes which we are very thankful for. The gifts we received actually ticked off the few remaining items that we had left to buy. I later found out that my friend had asked Mark what we still needed.



It was so much fun and a perfect way to celebrate the little human growing inside me. The games were so much fun, even if they got a few funny looks in the restaurant. A pregnant woman shouting my waters have broken would do that!!

Thank you to everyone that came and a big thank you to my lovely best friend.

Did you have a baby shower?

Thanks for reading,
