What's more fun for a Friday than a baby shower!

Today is the Cyber Baby Shower for Colleen over at Classy Mommy, hosted by Pamela from Happy Panda! Head on over to check out all of the wonderful baby gifts that she's received and to enter the contests for a chance to win some great prizes.

This sounds like a fun way to spend some time on a Friday, so I'm in! And on with the shower games...

  • Game #1 is to tell how long the labor and delivery of your first baby took. The quickest labor and delivery will win. Well, I probably have no shot at this one since my first labor and delivery took a full 13 hours - but I have the feeling that's by no means the longest either!

  • Game #2 is to share a 'belly bump' photo. I shared some of these in a previous post, but here's another glimpse of my belly from the night before Becca was born:


  • Game #3 is to share a photo of our baby's nursery. Well, the only one of my children who really had a 'nursery' to speak of was Abby, since we had the money (and time) to spend on it back then. The theme was Winnie-the-Pooh since it was gender non-specific and we didn't quite trust the ultrasound technician all the way when she told us we were having a girl (she said something like 90% sure, but there was just that little 10% of doubt!). Considering that we lived in a townhouse that we rented and therefore couldn't paint or do anything permanent to, I think the nursery turned out pretty cute!

    Nursery5 - Mar 01

    Nursery4 - Jan 01
  • Game #4 is that the person who had the biggest baby will win. Well, Abby was a big baby, but not the biggest I've ever heard of, so we'll see! She was a whopping 9 pounds 2 ounces, well more than either of her younger sisters. Thus the 13-hour labor mentioned above. :)
So head on over and check out all of the wonderful gifts and prizes - you can participate whether or not you have a blog or want to post a shower entry!

That's a big baby bump! I was huge for my last baby, but there is no way I'm putting my belly on here. It looked pretty huge. LOL I'm tagging you with a meme :o)

A cyber baby shower - what a cool idea. I just checked it out today, but I'll have to go back and see who wins.

13 hours? That sounds like a long time to me. I had Beth in 3 hours and 45 minutes, and Cory in an hour and a half. When my kids were ready to be born, they were ready!
