On November 20, the Embassy held a baby shower for myself and the 2 other ladies expecting babies in the next month.
Lots of people contributed and we each received a diaper cake, a basket of baby essentials and a nice stash of cash.One of the games we played had all of the moms-to-be feed the dads-to-be (and one stand-in Marine) a baby bottle filled with beer. Ronnie and I came in a close second, but the Marine won! Three dyas later on the 23rd, my girlfriends here in Quito threw a shower for me at Rachel's house. It was such a nice day and we really were showered with great gifts!These are all the adorable clothes and toys we received that day:One of my friends couldn't make it to the shower because she was back in the States. We were so surprised when we received a package at the post office from her. It was actually the first gift we'd received from our registry! We were so excited to put it together.We can't wait to see Kaitlyn enjoy all of the great gifts we received! Thanks everyone!
