Here we are at the photo wall. Rocco will be the new baby's name. Rocco means "rest" and I find that especially calming and meaningful especially after all the yearning and waiting that his parents went through. Now Nikki and Bern's hearts can rest from the yearning because now a new emotion will fill their days: delight!
|With my own baby boy. My other baby boy preferred to play with his Papa and cousins.|
|With dear friends, Nicole and Kat.|
|The pennants are book pages printed with silhouettes of farm life.|
|Centerpieces are balls and flowers made of yarn, wood blocks, bottles wrapped in twine.|
|The gift table. Mine is the one with the flower!|
|Lamb cookie souvenirs! The signs are for the photo wall.|
Actually, Bern is the same way. He doesn't bake (at least I don't think he does) but he's very maasikaso kay Nikki. So maalaga. These guys are soooo devoted to their wives! My hubby's devoted to me, too, ha. This is not a read-between-the-lines thing! But Vince is more of a practical carer. He makes sure we're all safe, he'll fix whatever's broken in the house, he cleans up after us, he makes sure we're all fed and bathed. But he doesn't hold my hand if I'm feeling out of sorts. He lets me sort that out myself hahaha.
Anyway! Back to the shower! There was a lot of yummy food. Of course! Mom & Tina's never disappoints. There was a lot of games and prizes. There's guess the celebrity pregnant mommy, what's the baby animal name, which kid belonged to which popular TV family show, etc. In these next photos, Nikki and Bern had to compete against each other and show who's more ready to have a baby. Like, how do you burp a baby? Nikki won. Or Bern let her win haha.
Nikki and Bern, we're excited to meet Rocco! It's the final stretch so get a lot of rest and sleep and couple time. Pretty soon, you'll be suffering sleepless nights, exhaustion and delicious, delirious and addicting love!
