March 3rd was the day to celebrate Baby Halbrook and Baby's Daddy! "Nacho Average Baby Shower" was thrown by soon-to-be Auntie Julia, Auntie CC, soon-to-be Grandma Michelle at the Halbrook home. With margaritas a plenty, this was indeed a very different baby shower!
Mexican themed decore engulfed the Halbrook home while Latin American tunes filled the rooms. Guests feasted on shrimp tacos, tamale pies, chips with homemade guac, homemade salsa, cupcakes, brownies and cookies. Yes, there were beer and as we mentioned earlier margaritas, made with jalapeno infused tequila! The soon to be dad was the center of attention as he opened the thoughtful gifts friends and family gave us for our baby boy. Pete and his buddies got to experience what was once a type event given only for new mamas, and it was a riot! Baby Daddies deserve a little celebration too!
After all, the man that helps his preggy wife feel good about herself, makes sure she's comfortable, fixes her back pains, deals with the mood swings like a champ, and cooks healthy meals to make sure she and baby get all the nutrients they need. Pete, you're going to be a great dad!
We'd like to thank all our friends and family for showering us with so many helpful and fun gifts for our little guy. He's going to be one very stylish little man, just like his dad. We're overwhelmed with all the love and excitement everyone is showing - it feels really good to have all this support!
This lucky boy has many Tios (and Tias) lined up to teach him how to dress sharply, how to play sports, make him laugh with silly jokes, and even how to speak/read Spanish! What a lucky lil' dude! Tio Luis even got big sister, Jolene, a gift so she wouldn't get jealous that all the toys weren't for her and she got a lot of attention at the party as they know she's got a big role coming up too!
The night ended with the gang dancing up a storm in the family room into the wee hours, not unlike any other Halbrook party. This kiddo will have some big dancing shoes to live up to!
Thank you, thank you all, for your love.
What to pack when you're going to Michigan in the dead of winter for your baby shower? Well, first and foremost, a fun party dress to show off the bump. Secondarily, warmest sweaters, snow boots, maternity jeans and comfortable clothing for the airport - god forbid I get a middle seat on the plane at 7 months pregnant, need to make it to the bathroom and be sitting with restrictive clothing. I flew out of Baltimore late Friday night, only to return Sunday night (aka Super Bowl night).
All in all, everything went off without a hitch despite the snow massive snow fall that started Saturday afternoon and did not stop even after I left. There was about 4 inches of snow when I left and they were getting even more this weekend! Baby shower? More like Baby Snow Storm.
Finally, we're exited to share with you....
if we're having a boy or a girl...
joining Mama and Jolene with April birthdays...
