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!
