A Few Shots And A Shower

Sweet Henry got his 6 months shots this week. We love his doctor. He is such a blessing to our little family. I am glad he came to our hospital room as the doctor on call when Henry was born, otherwise I would not have known how wonderful he is. We had chosen a different doctor for Henry but I made the switch to him after seeing his bedside manner. I love this picture because it needs no caption!
Our little Daddy with his boy. He met us at the doctor. He is such a sweet little Daddy! Henry and I are about 3 blocks from one another during the week. His doctor's office is right between us. Driving to all 3 places is a little much so I decided we would walk. His daycare director gave me the daycare stroller and insisted I use it. They fixed him a bottle and gave him his blanket. It was so cute watching them pack him up in that little bitty stroller with all his stuff. They then walked me out with him and wished him well with his shots. I think they love him as much as we do....I just love that!

Henry did so good at the doctor. He only cried when he got the shots and I got a little misty eyed myself. This was the first time he was really aware what was happening and felt the pain in a whole new way. Poor little punkin! He was so sleepy when I took him back to daycare, but in true Henry fashion he did not nap very long because it would mean missing out on all his friends. He was asleep for the night at 5:10 and had to be woken up to eat. That's my boy!

I hosted a shower in my office a few hours after Henry's doctor visit. I was a busy girl that day. I even made the cake! I am a party planner at heart, and it is often part of my job too. It is the best part, I think! We had 6 hostesses but I just had them pay me and I did it all. It is also the control freak in me too! It makes me happy.

I loved how it all looked. I told everyone that our office needed to be cleaned so what better excuse to clean...throw a party! We cleaned it the best a marketing office can actually be cleaned and decorated it in the colors the nursery will be in. It turned out so cute, I thought.

Deania is due in less than a month and is having a little boy, Drew. I loved the initial I painted for the cake. She is a precious friend of mine and I am excited about her new addition!
(I thought I loaded a hostess photo, but I must not have. Oh well, you can imagine how cute we looked behind the food table.)

A busy week makes for a tired working mama. I think if I sat real still I might fall over. I am really starting to wonder if my iron is still low or am I just out of shape and over extended? ha.

I love the office shower pics! That's the nicest office shower I've ever seen and a great idea for a cake. I'll let you know the next time I'm hosting a party and you can give me some tips.

I am so impressed with party planning! Green is my favorite color and it made me smile to see how creatively you used it ... Fabulous job!

(And Henry has so many adorable expressions -- that boy is going to melt a lot hearts in his time!)
