Baby Shower & Father's Day

First of all, Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there. And especially to my husband, who I know will be a wonderful Dad.
Yesterday was a blast! It was so good to see everyone, get together, chill out, and of course have baby chat. My Mom and Stephanie did such a wonderful job putting together the whole shindig, and I couldn't be more thankful to them! The food was delicious, the cake was adorable, and the company was wonderful. My great aunt came and it is always so nice to see her. Since she is my grandmother's twin sister, it definitely makes me miss my Mimi more whenever I see her, and it's almost bittersweet because I see so much of Mimi in her as well.
Melissa, a life long friend of mine, stopped by. Which is also someone I don't see as much as I'd like, and it was so nice to be able to catch up with her. And of course it was good to see everyone else. My step-mom and step-sister came, and it's been awhile since I've seen them.
The general consensus is that I'm having twins, since I am the size of the side of a house. Pregnant women tend to get big when they are growing a person in their bodies. I guess people tend to forget that. I've learned to let it slide.
And as far as the gifts go, we've definitely got Mason started off with a LOT of goodies. He definitely has enough newborn clothes now, and blankets, diapers, wipes, pacifiers, bath stuff, and more. It would take me awhile to list it all, so I'm sure you can get the general picture. My nursery is packed full of things, that's for sure.
I'll post pictures of the party later on today, so check back.
And in baby news, Mason is kicking the crap out of me as usual. My heartburn level has soared through the roof, and I'm beyond ready to meet him. My next doctor's appointment is July 2nd, and then I'll have my 3d/4d ultrasound on July 12th. Exciting! Things are happening fast!
