Baby Shower, Daddy Shower!

At Kelly's Korner this week it's all about baby showers. Now, I fully realize daddy showers are WAY less common than mommy baby showers, but I was lucky enough to get one!

I work in a Neonatal ICU, and of the 50 or so people I work with, a grand total of 3 are men. So that means the rest are women, and they all threw me one heck of a great daddy shower!

It was sports themed with little pink footballs, baseballs, soccer balls, tennis balls...if it was sports related and pink, you can bet it was there! The cake was a football field. Perfect! GO COWBOYS!

My co-workers were extremely generous and knocked out just about everything we had remaining on our baby registry (Brit had her baby shower a couple weeks earlier). Thank you so much ladies (and gents)!

Needless to say, I had a great time. They really went over the top and I was so thankful and appreciative for all they did! Couldn't have imagined a better Daddy Shower!

Brittany came too!


I had to wear my 'daddy' medal all day.

Gifts!
