We had a beautiful, sunny weekend here in Charlotte. Friday night was a low-key evening, much needed! Ian and I made our favorite flatbread pizzas and watched a Dateline episode. We also did lots of tidying up since I was hosting a baby shower the next day!
My sister and Mom arrived in town around 11 on Saturday, and Laura and I went to a consignment sale while Mom stayed at home with Camille. I did score several new little outfits for Camille, mostly playclothes in size 2T. Since we just went for the half-priced portion of the sale, I was getting some little t-shirts for $0.50 or $1, and I think the most I spent was $6 for a Tea Collection dress. Laura picked up some adorable little blue clothes for her sweet baby boy, due at the end of May.
The shower was so lovely and relaxed, and I'll be posting photos tomorrow! Here's the mama-to-be with me and my fellow cohostess, Laura's sister-in-law.
Once all of the guests left, Ian and I took Laura and her husband T to Chuy's for dinner. You can tell that Camille is a BIG fan of her uncle. :) Worships him.
Sunday was nice and lazy, but the highlight was a family "picnic" outdoors for supper. Typically, Camille will eat around 5:45 and go to bed at 7, which is when Ian and I will eat. I have started thinking that it may be really beneficial for us to all eat together when possible. I did notice last night that she CLEARED her plate, and I think part of that was watching us eat the exact same food. We grilled out hot dogs and had coleslaw. Camille and Ian also had some baked beans. This morning when I picked her up from out of her crib, her first words were "Eat ... picnic!" so I think that she just really loved it and it made a positive impression on her. So sweet.
It was also a big crafting day for me yesterday, making more hairbows to gear up for a trunk show happening in Greenville, SC later this week! I am so excited to have one last show opportunity before the new baby comes. I'll be 37 weeks pregnant for this show, so cutting it mighty close, but the midwives I see are checking me on Wednesday to make sure it's still kosher for me to travel 1.5 hours away. They did point out that some mothers have that long of a drive to the hospital, and I haven't made any progress as of yet, so they weren't concerned in the least as of last Wednesday. Baby seems to be staying put. :)
We have already had a great playdate visit with friends this morning, and Camille's currently napping. It's back to making more bows for me, and gearing up for the craziness of the Bachelor finale tonight!
