An English Baby Shower

If you haven’t followed us on Facebook yet, I can break the news to you that we are having a bouncing baby boy come October 1st! The military wives club here in England were so gracious in putting together this beautiful English-themed baby shower equipped with scones, finger sandwiches, and the traditional English spirit, Pimm’s!Don’t forget to subscribe to our blog via email for the most recent AHWTM updates!

The weather was so kind to us this Saturday. For those of you who haven’t visited England, I am here to tell you it is notoriously rainy and overcast. Luckily for us it was cool and super sunny!

We played your typical shower games like guess the size of the bump which was HILARIOUS because I carry super small! In the picture above I was 32 weeks and six days. He’s a little fella!Among the thoughtful gifts received, the ladies also proffered their advice concerning the new life that baby brings. I’ve become quite accustomed to it being just us two, so any insight on how to segway from a twosome to a threesome was appreciated!

Advice ranged from “continue to date your spouse” to “just go with the flow.” While the advice sounds simple enough, each of the ladies expounded on how pivotal it was to their sanity to implement it everyday.
