Catch-up post: A shower for baby B!

About a week and a half ago (Friday, 5/14), we threw a shower to celebrate Hilary and the impending birth of baby boy B!  Hilary is due at the end of June, and we couldn't be more thrilled for her and Steven.  :)

The shower was such a fun commingling of two of Hilary's Princeton "worlds" -- our small groups, and the psych department.  Everyone there was united in their love for Hilary and their excitement about this precious baby boy -- and it helps that there was a ton of good food, some silly shower games, and a bunch of adorable little kids to play with!

Among the decorations at the shower: baby-themed name tags (gotta love free internet clipart!), a beautiful diaper cake on the gifts table, and Joshua's old newborn-sized clothing, which he's lending to his friend-to-be.  :)

Silly shower games!  Close your eyes and draw a picture of Hilary's family; estimate how much yarn it takes to get around Hilary's belly.

Babies, babies everywhere! Joshua and Caleb, the littlest guys; Jemina and Ishaan, the toddlers (and Ishaan took his very first steps at this shower!); and Aliina, one of the happiest babies I've ever met!

And just some of my favorite shots of the beautiful mother-to-be, opening gifts and with her labmate Ann Marie (also a recent new mom!):

Hilary and Steven, we are so beyond excited for your family! Can't wait to meet baby boy B!!
