One of the many fun games we played. This one is where the guests try to guess my waist size.

This one is guess the baby food. We actually had a tie so the two winners had to see who could eat a jar of baby food the fastest. It was hilarious!

Then my camera died. Boo. One of my favorite games that wasn’t shown here was when they passed out advice cards and we read them as I opened each person’s gift. Some really funny stuff…mostly how I should make Minh do everything :)

Thanks to my sister and cousins for throwing the best baby shower and thank you to all of my friends who came and “showered” us with love and such generous gifts. We can’t wait to meet our little one!
