Robbin Visits!!

Our lovely friend Robbin came for a visit from LA. She had been to Seattle before when we lived in our apartment but had not seen our house and pup Winston. We have been having a lot of fun hanging out seeing some sights.
The neighborhood of Fremont had a street fair this past weekend. Not sure what the theme was since we missed the solstice parade the day before. They had a display of whacky cars. This was our favorite, loaded with teeth and dental products. We think Joel might needs this for his next company car.

This is what happens to a husband who does not listen to his pregnant wife!!!
This is Robbin as angry kitty?
We spent yesterday downtown at Pike's market and shopping. We really liked this sign at one of the boutiques. We took the message literally!! Robbin goes home to LA tomorrow. Thanks to husband Jason for letting us borrow her!!!

Seattle Shower

I know it must sound like I am talking about our weather!! It has been a bit gray and dreary (more than typical) but I am speaking about baby shower!! My girl friend Hillary threw a wonderful baby shower for me. A group of our co-worker friends in the ER came over for an afternoon of good food, mocktails and cupcakes.
Yummy alcohol free "mocktails"
Three flavors of cupcakes
Hillary did a great shower game you can "steal" She copied photos of celebrity babies and you had to guess which baby belonged with which celebrity. The tie breaker was to be able to name the baby as well. We have some real people magazine readers among us!!
Shannon's girls help to open the gifts
Cute summer outfit for next summer from Laura
Thanks Hillary for all your hard work and ER girls for the gifts and well wishes!

Baby Girl's Boudoire

Sorry it has taken me so long to post. I could not get the lighting right for these photos. Maybe because I was too lazy to use the real camera and so I used the camera phone. I think it turned out ok in the end. This is our "guest room" now turned baby boudoire!! We kept the double bed in there and put the baby furniture on the other side . Thanks to everyone for all the great baby gifts that completed her room!! The Bebe sign above the crib was made by my great friend Jenn for our baby shower. She was kind enough to let us keep it for the room!!This is her little music/library/toy shelf. Alex's co-workers threw a little shower in the office this week for us and for another co-worker who is expecting in July as well. They had everyone in the office bring in their favorite children's book so now we have a great library!!
It is getting super close now and we are excited. I am really done being pregnant. Only 3 weeks to go and we are having my mom come visit next week and then my girlfriend Robbin the week after. I have two more weeks of work left as well. Winston will be super excited to have us home all summer. He loves when we are home with him. I will post pics from my shower up here soon!! More pics to download!!
