In my quest to stay positive, I decided to let my mom and BF plan a baby shower. I really hope things don’t back fire on me now. My husband was a little ticked that I decided to have one but I asked him to pay attention to my mom running around with her head cut off planning this shower and explained that it was more for her than me. Sometimes you have to let others do things even if you don’t want to, because it makes them very happy. It’s only one day so I’ll survive. I thought about having the shower after the baby was born but the thought of 15-20 people holding my baby that soon after birth makes me cringe, so I chose this option instead.
In addition, my mom and my BF have gone in together and got me a belly photo session. It isn’t my ideal present since I’m not a huge fan of photos of myself but hey, this may be my only chance so I’m going with it. The photographer is also a friend so I reserved her talents to take newborn shots of our little guy. Since I try to dabble in photography I’ll take some shots on my own and who knows, maybe a few will make it into the albums we make for the grandparents but at least I don’t have to worry about it.
