Say, Sam-I-Am, I Really Do Like Green Eggs and Ham

Over this last weekend, Eva and I hosted a baby shower for my good friend, Elizabeth at our house.  Elizabeth and her husband, Sam, are expecting their first child (a baby boy) this June.  Elizabeth had thrown my baby shower for Eva last year, so I couldn't wait to return the favor when she became pregnant.  Me, along with two other close friends and her sister-in-law coordinated the shower on Sunday, which turned out to be a perfectly beautiful day and well planned overall.  Here is the coordinating group, along with the mommy-to-be (me, Kristen, Elizabeth, Bertha, and Jaime):

The day was lots of fun.  It's always nice getting together with a group of girls to have some fun.  And, it gave Dana the opportunity to get out and have a little guy fun (don't ask me what that entails, all I know is he was out being a guy, doing what guys like to do together).  Anyway, we had a great spread of food, played some fun games, and watched Elizabeth open a great variety of gifts from everyone.  Some of us even got to feel Baby Agia move!  I have to admit, it kind of made me miss pregnancy (don't get any crazy ideas).  Nothing like feeling your baby moving around inside (I know, Ashley, no need to reply, I already know what you're thinking (wink,wink)). Here we are, getting some baby action:

Baby Agia was kind enough to share some of his attention with Eva during the party.  Being that she was the only baby girl there, people couldn't wait to get their hands on her, including Grandma Agia, who is welcoming her first grandchild...she was so good with Eva.  And, she made a prediction that our next baby will be a boy...Hmm

Eva couldn't wait to get into Elizabeth's arms, for she got all dressed up just for her...you can tell she was so happy to be held next to her future friend.

And, of course, a picture of me and my baby girl.

 

Eva updates for the week:  She has been an extremely happy baby, who has been given several compliments on her calm, happy, smiley demenour.  She is becoming very active and moving around in any way that she can.  She is really focusing on things to grab, and show interest in just about anything that she can get into her mouth, including her feet:

(Despite what the pic may look like, Dana is not helping her by shoving her foot into her mouth, she really is doing all the work.  Quite flexible, I would say)

She is also moving around alot in her crib.  She ends up in the funniest places sometimes, but at the same time, seems to be able to entertain herself more while hanging out in there when waking up from her naps.  Here is a pic of how I found her the other day.  When I set her down, she was perpendicular to what you see here and in the middle of the crib.  How she got to where she is is beyond me.

Well, back to being a mom.  I hear Eva letting me know she is ready for some cuddlin' :)
