Celo Baby Shower

Thank you to my mother in-law Marilyn who organized a baby shower for me in Celo. Even though we don't live there it is still such an important and supportive family of people to us. It is so special how many people have known Gabriel his whole life and it is so exciting to see so many of his peers from childhood now also having children of their own. The shower was over the 4th of July weekend which was while my dad, Carolyn and Addie were still in NC so it was fun for them to meet the greater Celo family.

Pee pee tee pee
Laugh so hard it hurts
This face and the laughter that was the laughs so hard it hurts brand was due to the present gifted in the photo above this one. We were given a set of Pee Pee Tee Pees. Things I guess that come in handy when you have a baby boy. The instructions on the label read "place the pee pee tee pee on the wee wee." Totally laugh worthy.

Presents from Emily
I had to put this photo in because of the expression on my dear sister in-law Emily who is in the right side of the photo hiding her face in shame because she just couldn't control herself buying the most adorable things for her first nephew.
