A New Era?!

School starts this morning. I know that because the calendar tells me so, because I'm up at 5:00 AM and because the radio told us to look out for school buses. This year has a definite difference: with Baby Boy due this week, I have barely noticed the dreaded "end of vacation" as I'm all wrapped up in "whoa, something big (or little) and new".

10 people in the shower?! It must be a party

Tonight, Lisa's book club threw us a baby shower. (IMPORTANT: Thanks to Jessica for all the planning and beautiful scene and to Jeremy for the location and the amazing food!).

I've been to one or two baby showers (I think two) and have certainly seen more on TV or in the movies and heard about the important as a rite of passage event - tonight was nearly unrecognizable to those familiar with the clich├ęs - drinks, a gourmet meal, and a cake that could have come from a reality show.

Again, important thanks to Jessica and Jeremy for making it happen :) I hope someone sends me all the photos (my fancy new camera is great in every situation but low-light.
