Last Sunday I attended my first ever baby shower. None of my friends in the US have kids yet, but it seems like everyone I know in Finland already has a few at least. So I was very excited about this baby party and even had to Google the baby shower etiquette, because I had no idea what to do and what to expect. Cake was done by the lovely Gracie.
We ate, chatted, played games, watched Rob tear a NYC phonebook in half in 20 seconds, did one arm push-ups and the other usual stuff people do at baby showers.
Sippy cup chug competition with iced tea. Guys won, of course...
I won Guess the size of Mommy's Tummy! I never win anything so you can see how sincerely happy I was.
We gave some great advice for the mommy-to-be. Like "Try not to drop the baby".
She also got tons of lovely gifts, but I think the winner and the stunner of the night was the Bugaboo. I learned during the course of the night that these Bugaboos are the "it" accessory for the modern NYC mamas. So all and all besides being a fun night, it was also very educational one.
