Sophie's Baby Shower


On Sunday we had a family baby shower for my sister Alicia.  We had it only 2 days before her due date so that my other sister could attend when she got back from Honduras.  So we were cutting it really close, but thankfully Sophie waited to come until after the shower.

We had such a great time and she got so many wonderful gifts.  Here are a few pictures from the shower.


All the gifts!
We sent this poem out with the invite and everybody brought books.

One small request that won't be too hard, please bring a book instead of a card. Whether Cat in the Hat or Winnie the Pooh, you can sign the book with a note from you. Baby Sophie will be very smart indeed, if we start early she will soon learn to read.

My aunt and cousins made Sophie this bookcase to hold all of her books.  So cute!

One of my gifts for Sophie.  Do you think it'll work? :)
