Yesterday was my second baby shower. I had two because there were too many people to have in one place, so last weekend was one with my friends and my parents’ friends, and this weekend was one with all of mine and Yannick’s family.
I’m not going to get into all the gifts that we received, or into who gave what, because I truly feel that everyone was more than generous. I never would have expected half of the stuff that we received, and it is so heartwarming to realize how loved and how blessed this little baby will be (not to mention how spoiled!). You will all get cards in the mail, but if any family or friends are reading this, thank you, thank you, thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. You overwhelmed us, you really did.
I have some FOs to post, but they deserve their own post, so I will get to them later. Plus they’re still in the dryer.
In the meantime I will leave you with a video of the baby gift that won the prize for being the most…um…inappropriate? wrong? Yannick and I couldn’t stop laughing at it, and trying to figure out the thought process behind its design. Fun toy, or wince-inducing torture idol? You decide!

You dare mock the shaking balls?? Oh ye of little faith. This will probably end up being baby’s favorite toy for at least the first year of his life.
Actually, I had something similar for my Erika, and she loved it. Then again, it was more girly, not pulling on a cord attached to a ball in some teddy’s nether regions!

That is one weird toy. Really. Wow. Strange!

It’s supposed to teach you to leave the balls alone! (Or you will shake in pain). 😉 I have to say, the design does leave much to be desired.
