Anyway, way back when we were worried she wouldn't even make it 28 weeks, some dear and lovely friends (Russanne, Emily, Sarah) threw me a shower. Since I was on bed rest, they did it at my house, and the loyal Russanne came and cleaned up the place and decorated while I sat on the couch. This was only slightly awkward, since I so longed to help. But Russanne is an absolute professional at organizing and decorating. It was a marvel to witness. And didn't it turn out beautifully? It was sort of a woodland theme, with the snails and the owls. And see those big puffy things? I love them so.

|There's the little lady herself, in that frame. I haven't posted any ultrasound pictures, eh? Well, there's one.|
|Here I am opening a giant present. Even my toes are excited.|
|These are the three shower throwers. They are some of my favorite people in all the land.|
|The quilt in its glory. And it is glory, no?|
