Baby shower!

Last Sunday some of the ladies at work threw a baby shower--there are 3 (!) of us who are expecting our first babies, all girls, within a few months of each other, so we got to enjoy a joint shower! Which was great for me, 'cause secretly I fell incredibly uncomfortable opening presents while 20+ people sit around and watch. At least that's how I felt at my bridal showers. Anyway, it was nice to have reinforcements, so it wasn't just me that everyone was watching! Everyone was so sweet--I even got gifts from people who I've never really talked to. I forgot to bring my own camera, but luckily I was able to snag some photos from one of the girls who helped plan the shower. Here we go:

The scrumptious cake...white, with raspberry filling. Yum!

And where were all the pregnant girls? Parked in front of the cake, of course!

And here are the 3 of us in ascending order: Me, of course, due in 2 1/2 months; Anne, due in 1 1/2 months; and Molly, due in 2 1/2 weeks!
