Sunday Jigsaw Puzzle - Baby Shower for Avery

Our young friends Mike and Amber are expecting their second child in about a month.  Their families and friends had a nice baby shower for them.  Since this is number 2 the theme was more humorous than sentimental.  The new baby will be a boy and they plan to name him Avery.  Number 1 son Gavin will be a big brother and have to share the spotlight with the new guy.  Gavin helped with opening the shower gifts which were mostly little outfits and lots and lots of diapers.

Mike's sister Rosie is a Registered Nurse and had a special gift for brother Mike. It was a special Hazmet Suit to be used for those really scary brown diapers. It was complete with surgical gown, gloves, cap, face mask with eye shield, and special apron with the inscription Stand Back, Professional at work! Mike was a good sport and modeled it for everyone but reminded us that since Gavin is 3 1/2 Mike has had plenty of "hands on" experience with brown diapers.

Pardon the quality of the photos but all I had with me was my old iPhone. These are just for fun snapshots, and the shower was definitely lots of fun.

That hazmat suit is a classic. Love it.

That is so funny. We don't have baby showers in England - at least, not that I know of. We do tend to follow everything America does so I could be wrong on this!

I'd of been glad to have had a hazmat suit when SPB was younger.

What a wonderful gift. It's so good to have a giggle with friends, especially when they're the ones you can have a moan to or a cry with too.
