Anyway... last week my sweet friends had a little shower for Baby Lia!! And - they actually surprised me, which is not easy because, in our group, I'm the planner. I plan everything. They were smart and had the shower on our Book Sharing Club night. (We don't have rules about reading one book - we just bring books to share and talk about - it's fun and no commitments!) So while I was sending out emails to remind everyone that our BSC was coming up, they were planning on a surprise.
I wish I could say I had a ton of cute pictures from that night... but I don't. I did take a picture of the beautiful cake though - it says, "Welcome Baby" in Amharic.
Hmmm... that set up looks vaguely familiar...
Oh wait, wrong party. (But seriously - check out that cake that Kevin made for us. He is pretty amazing.)
I do have Lia's bed put together. We inherited a brand new bedding set a while back from my friend Christina. It's adorable.
We also inherited a car seat from my friend Dawn. (She's a very trusted source and it is nowhere near expiring, so it's safe.) The car seat had a blue cover so I searched for a cute cover to make it a bit more girly. I found this one and I love it. Even though it took me thirty minutes and a good sense of humor to put on...
And amidst all of this crazy, Micah had his last day of regular school. (He starts summer school while we're in Ethiopia - poor little guy.)
Micah with one of his teachers. Is that not adorable??
Okay, that's all I have time for this morning (behind schedule already). But, I have more so hopefully I'll have a chance to post this week before we LEAVE!!!
