|FSE Baby Shower|
In December, when Chris’s company, FSE, found out I was pregnant (he announced it first thing in his annual “Message to the Company”), two of the engineers’ wives immediately offered to throw me a baby shower. It was so kind of them to organize a couple’s shower for me, Chris and baby Renoud. I kept trying to help but they wouldn’t let me. All we did was show up and enjoy our special day; there was lots of laughing, lots of advice and lots of anticipation.
|Of course there were cupcakes!|
|But not just ANY cupcakes! Baby Cupcakes!|
They had fun games that mostly involved making fun of Chris. He was a really good sport though.
|Notice his practical footwear? High heels, size 11!|
|Eeek! Cradle the baby’s head!|
There was also a game where people had to guess the circumference of my waist. Obviously, I don’t look as petite as people keep saying because some of these men picked sizes that could have spanned a kitchen table! My husband did it right though and picked the smallest size he could.
We got some adorable gifts. And we felt so thankful by everyone’s generosity. We’re just thrilled to have a celebration of our impending arrival and then to get gifts? It was very sweet.
|Just a little small for Chri|
We were especially delighted with one very practical gift that came from the youngest inspector at FSE. His name is ‘Guy’ and he’s also expecting a baby girl – just one month after us! He bought us a Pack’n’Play in a great color – gray and black.

Some of the other hightlights were a hand-knit blanket, handmade bibs + receiving blankets and of course, another cute outfit from Grandma and Grandpa Renoud.Our little baby boy will be the most stylin’ newborn in Bellingham with the amount of snazzy outfits his Grandparents are getting him.
We were so thankful for the love and joy of the day. It was so much fun. Stay tuned tomorrow for the Girls-Only Baby Shower report =)
