Baby Shower Time!

Being away from family during my first pregnancy has been a little tough and certainly our wonderful friends here in Taiwan have helped in so many ways.  My close friend Mary threw me a baby shower a few weekends ago and made me feel so loved and spoiled.  We played games, drank mocktails and wine (except me), ate homemade chocolate cake, opened awesome gifts, and overall had a fantastic afternoon.

Chocolate cake with an elephant on top made by the extremely talented Kerri along with the diaper cake in the background 
Perhaps my favorite game of the day was guess the baby photo contest.  My mom sent over some pictures of me and I can't wait to compare once Huxley joins us.
I was almost 10 pounds at birth, eek!  
I chose this picture for the game and Jeff got it right away
Here's the photo of Jeff.  I totally thought it was one of the girls!

I always loved to dress up as a kid
All the wonderful ladies!

Can't get over how adorable this cake is!
Finally what we'd all been waiting for, cake time!
Present time :-)

With just 3 weeks left until the due date, we're both super antsy with anticipation to meet little Huxley!
