Baby Caleb's shower

Remember baby Caleb?
Last weekend we had the pleasure of throwing his baby shower for my best friend Anna as they prepare for his arrival home!

Caleb's little life has been so amazing to watch. 
He's only 4 (almost 5) months old and God has already used Him mightily for His glory.
Caleb is proof that God is the Creator and Sustainer of life
and that He is full of mercy and grace.
What a great God we serve!

Here are a few details from the shower.

One of our friends made the cute "Mighty Mouse" onesie to represent Caleb's nickname in the NICU (the doctors called him mighty mouse because he was tiny but strong) and we decorated the mantle with some fabric bunting and pictures of Caleb over the past 4 months. 

The backyard was also decorated for the occasion but since it was sooooo hot we pretty much stayed indoors. 

We asked each guest to write a little note to Anna or baby Caleb and then a few of us shared them during the shower. 

It comes in handy to know a baker. 
One of our friends made the most delicious lemon cupcakes ever. 
Seriously I could have ate them all.

Oh and I totally forgot to take pictures of the rest of the food but we had lots of yummy brunch things...egg casserole, potatoes, french toast casserole, muffins, fruit, croissants, etc.

We also played a couple simple baby games. 
Because what's a baby shower without games.

And the best part of any shower...presents!!!

Anna finally got some BLUE in her life with tons of cute boy stuff (she also has two girls at home so they are overwhelmed with pink right now). 

It was so fun to be celebrating Anna and baby Caleb and we are all counting down the days until he is home.

I love the idea of writing something for the mother or the baby... Now I can't wait until someone has a baby shower so I can use this idea!!! :)

Thanks for sharing!
