My Baby Shower in Anguilla

I remember the excitement I experienced for my bridal shower and my wedding day. No feeling can take its place.

This new feeling is something different, something special. I felt such joy and contentment when first the Optimist Club of Anguilla and later on my family hosted a baby shower for me to celebrate this new chapter of my life.

Baby Shower by Optimist Club of Anguilla

I have been a member of the Optimist Club  of Anguilla for about 10 years. I consider the members my family. This shower was a complete surprise. It was a dual shower to celebrate Njeri (another member) and me. Our due date is only one day apart.

I almost did not go to the Optimist meeting because I was feeling tired. Nash volunteered to drive me and strangely enough no warning bells went off. I was surprised to see balloons and decorations and it clicked immediately. I was so surprised, maybe because I thought it was still ‘early’ days so a shower was not on my mind. Thanks to Optimist Gina for hosting the shower at her home, Optimist Avon and all other Optimists who helped in some way. I was surprised to see my mom and sisters there as well. I was impressed that the persons closest to me were able to keep the secret and that I did not pick up on any suspicious clues.

The Baby Shower was fun. There was lots of laughter, fun games, gift and food. My Optimist family is amazing. Thanks for the love.

 

My Second Baby Shower

My second baby shower was organized by my sisters, mom and other family. It wasn’t a surprise. I knew the date and location but the other details were carried out by Sherise, mom and other family. They did a terrific job.

From the decorations, to the catering, to the games, to the cake, I loved it all. Thanks to all my family and friends for celebrating with me and for ‘showering’ me with so many gifts and expressions of love for our son. Nash and I are incredibly lucky to have you in our lives. Some persons could not make it but yet still showed their love and support. Thank you!
