We were so blessed to be able to celebrate with Mike and Natassja and help them prepare for the arrival of their first child, Jack Michael Prose. Natassja looked WONDERFUL at her baby shower- so adorably pregnant. How every woman wants to look when they are pregnant- just a sweet baby bump!
Mrs. Teresa, my mother-in-law, did a great job getting everything together for the shower, and I was so glad that I was able to help. I was so blessed by the shower that she and Natassja threw for me that I really relished having the opportunity to kind of pay it back. Natassja's nursery colors are baby blue and white, and her theme is world travel, hence the Eiffel Tower diaper cake, by yours truly.
I do have to give credit for the Martha Stewart pom-poms to Dana from the Orange Cat Photo Halloween party- such a fun decoration!
My highlight of the shower was watching Mike and Natassja play the 'diaper the baby' game where they see who can diaper the baby fastest while blind folded. Of course Natassja won, so we set up a consolation prize for the loser, a 'Daddy Diaper Tool Belt.' It was hilarious. He'll be ready next time for sure!
We are so excited for James to have his first little boy cousin and our first nephew!! Yeah Jack! coming sometime around January 12, 2011...
James was playing around with Daddy and his 2nd cousin Amelia while we were having the shower. We got a kick out of James' balancing act with Daddy, and we couldn't believe how much taller he was than Amelia- such a petite little thing! But she can walk already, so there James. :-)
