It has been one whole month since my little prince was born! Yes, today is his one month birth-versary. Having an abundance of time to embrace my renewed life as a mother, I wanted to share some photos and details of everything babyshower related!
We have felt so much love from family and friends from all around the World, and have never been more grateful for the selflessness and invested time that everyone has put into our little Prince Heru. He is truly a special baby boy, and will grow into a man that he and all of you can be proud to see! Honestly, there are no words that will amount to the insurmountable love and respect that I have for each and every one who has been a part of Heru’s life thus far. Our little Prince has been showered with gifts and love, from friends that we have not spoken (on a regular basis) to in months, years…I don’t know about you guys but that’s true love right there! And the love keeps on pouring in! I am making sure to have Heru personally thank everyone for their gifts…To those that we have not seen yet, trust me – We are making our way!
The day of Prince Heru’s babyshower was somewhat of a doozie! It was hectic, and my amazing party planner (also a close friend) showed up to set up on time, yet no one opened the door for her so she had to leave and come back! FAIL! Other things had happened before guests trickled in, which by the way, we were still setting up as this was happening! If this isn’t a true reflection of my procrastination and time management issues, than I don’t know WHAT is! Nonetheless…The energy of the party was nothing short of pure love. IF anyone did notice the mishaps, they left happy and with bellies full of yummy snacks! The shower itself was quite simple, just as planned! Inspiration thanks to Pinterest – What a great app! The guest list was small, as my parent’s home (place of party) is quite small as well. I thought the day of his shower would be cooler weather, but it ended up being warm! Lots of guests + warm weather + small house = SWEATING.
My party planner, Anna, did such an amazing job that every guest left letting her know how beautiful everything was. My mother’s cooking was so delicious, that many guests took home to-go plates. I had not seen many of my gal pals in SUCH a long time, that I and I’m sure they also felt the love – So so SO happy to see all of you! The gifts are still being mailed in, dropped off, and Prince Heru is so, so grateful for everything! He is growing so happily and is my greatest joy and blessing. Thank you, ALL. I love you all so much!
Enjoy the photos, mostly courtesy of my sweet friend Anna!
