September 10th - Just A Sprinkle

Saturday, September 10, 2011


I've been postponing writing this post because I want need it to be perfect just like my very special sprinkle. Up until a few weeks ago, I had no idea that showers for babies other than the firstborn are known as 'sprinkles' {due to their smaller scale}.

Apparently Kim & Heather didn't get the memo because their intimate Mexican-themed 'sprinkle' was in fact a torrential downpour of games, goodies, gifts and LOVE {since when did I become this disgustingly sappy?}.
In truth I was overwhelmed with all the thoughtful red & yellow details... right down to the mini-carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese icing {my personal fave - I just don't remember telling anyone that factoid}. 

The sunny Sunday afternoon was sheer perfection...  

Bren's incredible multi-tasking abilities won her first prize in the clothesline game, Lori conned us all with her Baby Scattergories win and Sharmay hoarded our 'don't-you-dare-say-baby' safety pins. The cankles and I certainly enjoyed cooling off by the pool with girl talk and virgin margaritas.

Baby K's guests all went home with tissue pom flowers and bird seed to scatter {Mexicans believe this will bring the baby good luck}. As for me? I went home with even MORE baby clothes, a beautiful card and the twin to Saige's carseat.

The following week my ahh-masing team hosted a brunch in Baby K's honor...

The belly & I were spoiled with a delicious breakfast {Peter brought the juice}, a fun 'baby name' game, a touching card and a much needed baby monitor!


I don't know about you, but we're big on baby monitors around here - probably has something to do with the fact that Saige sleeps on a separate floor from us. Our current one is a 'piece' and our neighbour has been picking up our conversations on his police scanner {not cool, but at least he told us} so this is a very welcome addition.
