Preparing for Peanut

Yesterday, Peanut and I were invited to a little tea party - for us! While Andel and I were doing very little preparing for Peanut, Ashleigh and Dominique spent the better part of the last few weeks planning a baby shower!

Most of our closest friends and family were present to participate in the fun and share in the excitement. We played games (the golden oldies beat the pants off us at Baby Bingo), did foil-art (who knew it required so much brain power) and tested my baby knowledge (I think it's safe to say this mommy-to-be is still in the teething phase of motherhood!). The family and friends overseas were sorely missed, but fondly remembered as Ash shared the letters they sent for us.

Even Peanut got a name tag :)

Can you spot the other pregnant fairies?

Of course, a tea party just wouldn't be complete without something sweet to eat, and boy, these organisers did not disappoint. Despite not really having much of a sweet tooth, I think this was my favourite part of the afternoon. The thoughtful attention to detail that went into each little creation warmed my heart (and nearly wet my eyes) as we tucked into the most delicious cupcakes, biscuits, chocolates and pastries - each uniquely linked to the baby theme.

Aren't these the cutest cookies you've ever seen?

Yummy cupcakes

I know a few kids who'd like this kind of pacifier!

Towards end of the afternoon, I was given a table full of gifts and goodies for Peanut - clothing, toiletries, nappies, a bath, a feeding pillow, blankets and much, much more!

So now, with just over a month to go, we're very much on that last stretch, and inbetween exams, work and everything else, we're preparing for our new world of baby blues... No, don't worry, not the postpartem type; the kind that inevitably accompanies the arrival of a much anticipated little boy...
