Randolph Baby Shower

There is one surefire way to get over your “bump slump”: baby showers. This past Saturday, Ryan and I had our first shower with his side of the family, and to say that they spoiled us is a bit of an understatement.

The spread, which was all inspired by a different book. And yes, that is a Green Eggs and Ham cake, and it was every bit as tasty as it was awesome looking.
Going nuts over all of the girly gifts.

Books were the theme of the shower, and in addition to coordinating books with the food, like the Green Eggs and Ham cake that Alison had made, each family member brought a book with a note for Charlotte. We came away with quite the haul — 46 books total! Now, if all of that literature at her disposal doesn’t make her a baby genius, I don’t know what will.

The happy parents — Ryan just loves showers.

We also got lots of other wonderful gifts like our highchair, bottles and all of the necessary accessories, (Ryan, however, would argue that the bottle sterilizer is NOT a necessary accessory, but whatever, he already lost that battle.) and lots and lots and lots of girly clothes and shoes. She even started her college fund at this shower!

It was such a great celebration of what is to come, and if one thing is for sure, it is that Charlotte is going to be so loved by the Randolphs/Markwiths/Longs. I can attest to the fact that they’re amazing at making new additions feel so welcome and loved, and I’m so blessed to be a part of the family!
