Oh, Baby!

Last weekend, I hosted my little sister's baby shower at a lovely restaurant. I'm so excited that my sister is going to be having a baby in June - a baby girl! This means, of course, that I have already been buying lots of 'pink' stuff - you know, to get my fix!

We all had a lovely time - the food was amazing...







All our friends were there to celebrate with my sister...



And the favours were especially delicious!



The best part, of course, was having a memorable time with our wonderful grandmother who baked most of the yummy desserts there...



And of course, our awesome mom!





I brought my boys to the shower too - and they had a great time! Of course, I wasn't as relaxed as I could have been, but it was all good. I even had a chance to sit down and eat my lunch. That's rare, you know.







My sister had fun opening up all her beautiful presents, too. It's amazing how much one receives at a baby shower but the truth is - everything you get at your baby shower is actually used!







We had a blast playing a few baby shower games, and the biggest hit was the baby shower poem I stole from Pauline. Everyone loved it!



A huge thank you also to the talented Cherie-Lynn - she is the most amazing photographer and if I could afford to have her take pictures of me everyday, I would hire her! She is awesome! She recently took some new headshots of me, too - of course, I'll be sharing those with you as soon as I get them - I can't wait!
My sister's baby shower was a blast. Now, the countdown can begin until I get to hold her sweet baby in my arms!

Congrats to your sis on her upcoming baby (what's the correct word? upcoming sounds like a movie... impending sounds doomsday... pending sounds like an application... oh well)!! My wife's baby shower is this weekend. I hope she gets cupcakes too. And takes them home for me.
