Erin's Baby Shower

The count down is on - T-minus 6 weeks until I'm an Aunt!  Last weekend we celebrated Erin and little Eli with a baby shower hosted by her cousin Joy.

A wonderful group of friends and family gathered to shower the soon-to-be Mother with love and gifts on a spring-like Saturday afternoon.  Erin's 33 weeks pregnant in this picture and has a beautiful pregnancy glow.

The shower had a jungle theme, with lots of jungle animals and creative titles for all of the munchies.

The "Safari Sandwiches" were croissants filled with curried chicken salad - a family favorite recipe.

The "Jungle Fruit" was a mix of melon, pineapple, strawberries, blackberries, and apples, and was served alongside a decadent lemon marshmallow dip.

Erin received many adorable onesies and outfits that are sure to make this little boy a contender for best dressed newborn.  Other thoughtful gifts included handmade blankets, crib sheets, a baby monitor, car seat, and high chair.  My gift to Erin and Eli was a BOB jogging stroller.  I can't wait to take the little guy out for a run!

 One of Erin's friends made this adorable diaper cake complete with the cutest pair of shoes.

We're down to the final 6 week countdown to Baby Eli's arrival and our whole family is bursting with excitement!  It's hard to believe that my baby brother is going to be a Dad, but I have no doubt that he and Erin are going to be amazing parents to a very lucky little boy.
