Surprise Baby Flurry

Rebecca was nice enough to throw me a surprise baby "flurry" for Greta. She told me that we were getting pictures taken together, but instead Ella and I showed up in a room full of my family and friends all dressed in pink. I was both surprised and a bit overwhelmed at the same time. Thank you so much for everyone who was there to help celebrate another baby on it's way. Baby Greta received some really great gifts; clothes, diapers, wipes, toys. Even Ella got a few big sister gifts.

Here we are first walking in to Rebecca's house:

There were 12 of us there in total (and Ella and Ellie too). Here we are trying to get Ella used to walking into a room full of people (always takes a little bit to adjust):

First up, everyone had to guess how big a string was needed to fit around my belly. Laura F (my cousin) was closet and won the first prize.

After eating, another game and opening gifts, we were able to get a group shot together:

One more picture of Ella and Ellie playing puzzles with Lori:

Thank you so much for a great time. I'm so lucky that we were able to celebrate another happy, healthy pregnancy.
