We went back & forth on when to do the shower. Do we do it before we got get LP, do we do it before referral, do we wait til we come home & let people meet LP at the shower?
There were so many reasons why each situation would be better than another, but when it came down to it, we decided to do it now.
The shower will actually be the first weekend in May & will be a coed party. A party to celebrate Colombian culture & LP joining our family.
I talked to a lot of adoptive parents about when they did their shower & when it came down to it, they said to do it whenever was best for us. So why did we decide to do it now?
We felt by doing it now, there would be no rushing around & trying to fit it in before travel, after referral. We knew we would have a lot of people traveling in & also felt it was better to give them more time. We also thought that having a party after LP was home could be a bit overwhelming for our little one & I have read a lot about not wanting to have too many people around right after you come home with your baby.
So that is why! So May 8th we will be having our baby shower...I cannot believe this. I cannot believe WE are having a baby shower. It seems so surreal & when working with the BFF the other day & going over things, I was brought to tears....this was real! This was really for us, I am getting my baby shower.
Now to only figure out where we will be putting everything..lol!
