what's better than a week at the beach? getting adorable gifts for your baby at the beach! that's what! david's mom and sisters threw me a beautiful baby shower during their family reunion at pacific beach with all his aunts and cousins. they were all very generous and I'm so grateful to have such cute things to wrap, dress, clean, feed and cuddle my baby in when he comes! the shower was altogether wonderful to every detail. proof:

let’s start with those adorable mini cupcakes beth made you already saw and these adorable whale cookies as a thank you.
