Even though the shower occurred smack-dab in the middle of Joey's morning nap time, he was out and about in full force, extremely proud to show off all of his new tricks. He did do a little bit of lap-hopping (this is Bret's Granny and Aunt Melissa):
...but mostly he was into everything. He found a little baby doll in the middle of a diaper cake. (Where was that child's mother? I can't believe she let him dig in all of that baby's presents!) This baby doll was obviously something very new and different from anything he had ever seen before. It kept him entertained for quite a long time!But it did eventually get old, so he moved on to the discarded tissue paper:And then he went on to join in on the big kids' card game. (Conner is laying down on top of the cards, screaming for someone to "Get him away, get him away!")Okay, Jo-Jo...back to lap hopping for you!
Tiff had a really cute idea. She has a quilt that her mother made that she has brought to all of her showers. She has asked guests to sign the quilt in place of a guest book. Conner did a beautiful job,but his what-has-always-been-such-cute-just-learning-to-write-handwriting suddenly looked so grown-up next to Micah's-just-learned-to-write-my-name-this-week-signature!That's it on the square with red stripes, if you look closely you can make out all of the letters. On the square below it is the Pokemon that Micah drew while I was helping Joey "sign" the next square over. Oops. Then while I was making sure Micah didn't tackle another square, Joey "signed" his own ear.Aahhh! Enough with the markers! :)
And here's the proud (and ready to not be pregnant anymore) Mommy! Isn't she cute?Oh, and I'll guess we'll include Daddy Kevin too. He was there for a little while, waiting to fulfill one of the Daddy responsibilities of carting the loot out to the car...Kaleb, we can't wait to meet you!
