So when we found out baby G was on the way... I kind of got bummed. I mean I live in Georgia.. almost EVERYONE I would invite to a baby shower lives in Kansas. Kind of a problem. I went home in August when I was roughly 3 months pregnant but didn't know what we were expecting yet. And I don't plan to go home again until May when my sister graduates college... and the baby will already be here. So what's a girl to do?
My parents and my husband came up with the genius idea of a virtual baby shower. Essentially we registered at Walmart and Buy Buy Baby for our sweet girl. We then sent out a baby shower invite to all of our family and friends simply asking for a gift, card, special thoughts or prayers to be sent to our house in Georgia.
And our loved ones came through for us and baby G. Gifts started rolling in... and piling up. Silently mocking me for sitting there unopened.
Roughly a month after sending out the invitation... we got to open all of the sweet gifts.

Now I'm off to find a special home for each little item, wash tons of baby clothes and work more on perfecting that nursery!
