    As if I weren’t spoiled enough, I had another baby shower on Sunday! This one was for members of Mark’s family and hosted by my sister-in-law Stephanie, two of Mark’s aunts Rhonda and Cheryl, and his cousin Nina.

    The theme was a “diaper and tea shower.” How cute were these invites?

    In proper tea style, we were asked to don hats, pearls, boas and whatever else we needed to style ourselves appropriately. Mom and I showed up in style!

    The house was decked out in begonia plants, boas, tea cups and, of course, tea.

    There was a handmade wreath with lots of birds…

    And a custom made diaper cake from Sarah’s aunt Stephanie!

    The cookie was designed by Stephanie’s friend Jennifer.

    Towards the end of the shower, Stephanie came up to me and whispered conspiratorially, “There’s a surprise inside the diaper cake.” We walked over, she picked up the flower on the top and told me to look inside.

    Yes, that is a bottle of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay, my favorite. Do I have the best sister-in-law or what?

    There were also lots and lots of great presents from all of Mark’s aunts, cousins, grandmother and mom. See:

    And another smocked outfit courtesy of my mom. Ice cream cones this time!

    (Please ignore my crazy faces).

    This is going to be one well diapered and dressed little kiddo! Thanks to all the wonderful family who gave us so much!

    Also, I think I may take to wearing a hat on a regular basis. It’s rather fetching is it not?
