Shower #1

*Edited to add pictures!*

On Thursday afternoon Clio and I had our first shower. My co-workers threw it for me; it was jointly hosted by the English department and the Theology department because I'm good friends with all of the theology teachers and have been a regular adult leader on the senior "Kairos" retreats. And, of course, I'm a member of the English department (I love these guys!):

And here's a pic of me with my friend Mimi (one of the theology teachers), who just told me/us today that her sonogram on Monday revealed she's having twin girls! :) They will get only the BEST Clio hand-me-downs.

It was a great party; the food was scrumptious and the gifts were perfect, but more importantly, the company was wonderful. I am still feeling sad about leaving, and it is fun to enjoy these last opportunities to hang out with my talented and caring co-workers.

The food: pear tart, fresh fruit, chocolate cake, brownies, banana chocolate chip muffins and punch. Here's a pic of me opening presents that shows the food table:

The "loot:" I got several things from my Target registry in the Classic Pooh theme that I'm using for the nursery, and also several books! Clio is going to have an impressive library; I can see it already. My gifts include:

And Clio's library has several new additions, including:

I hope Clio likes Pooh, because she's going to be surrounded by it. :)

My second, and final, shower will be on May 31st and will be friends and family, hosted by a friend from church. There will probably be a lot to say about that shower because M and her mother are invited and are attending.

Happy Mothers Day to all of you...mothers and mothers-to-be. This will be the first Mother's Day in a long time for me that doesn't sting a bit. To celebrate, my in-laws are in town and we are going to see Wicked! at the Kansas City Music Hall tomorrow evening. I can't wait!

Also, today J and his dad went to Nebraska Furniture Mart over on the Kansas side of the city and picked up our crib!
