Baby Shower

This is our good friend Kim and her daughter, Rebecca, who is going to be a mom in September! Kim hosted a baby shower at Sorrentino's this afternoon and we had a great time together. Apparently it's an East coast custom to host a shower before the baby comes and a Western thing to have the shower after the baby comes. Kim's from the Rhode Island/Maine area so we celebrated Eastern style today! Rebecca just found out yesterday that she's going to have a baby girl (she had a 3-D ultrasound, which sounded fascinating) and she's even got it narrowed down to just 2 names already. Is there ever cool baby stuff out there these days! She's registered at
Toys R Us - which I didn't even know you could do! This baby was showered with beautiful clothes (but no dresses because the guests didn't know it was a girl until we arrived!), blankets, toys, books, dishes, bottles, shoes, a medical kit and many baby washcloths (I think every gift had some).

I'm looking forward to going to baby showers for Naomi and Heather, according to Western traditions - in a few months!


  1. I've never seen a photo of Rebecca! She looks a lot like her mom! Sounds like it was fun!
    A baby shower for me sounds like forever away but I can't wait to have one for Naomi!!! Every day I wonder if you'll call me to tell me she's had the baby! Hopefully it will stay in there a little bit longer!

  2. Sounds like a blast. I think there is good and bad things with the showers before and after. The before shower you know what you have got so you don't go buy it in preparation and then get duplicates. The good thing about the shower afterwards is the guests get to see the baby.
