Unabashed Baby Worship was Going On . . .

Yesterday my friend Sue and I hosted a shower for Josie at Sue's house. The guest of honor slept through much of it.

There was lots of food -- with a Southern theme -- cheese biscuits, chicken salad, pimento cheese, black-eyed pea hummus, to mention a few, and three desserts.


And still she slept -- there were any number of willing baby holders.

There were presents galore . . .  from a tiny hand-carved wooden spoon to books and stuffed animals, hand knit western wear, several quilts . . . and even a SnotSucker (yes, this is really a thing.)


And then there was The Quilt -- the 'surprise' wall hanging quilt made for Josie by friends and family. (The only surprise would have been if there hadn't been one but we maintain the fiction.)

I'll do another post on The Quilt tomorrow -- with up close pictures.


At last Josie awoke and took some nourishment.


She then stayed awake to entertain her admirers.


She is changing so quickly . . .


More and more personality . . .


HERE's a link to a web album of more photos from the party. (I think it works now -- and I've posted the album separately on Facebook.)

Great community, where all will be there to support her as she grows up. I do hope her life has much happiness and satisfaction, love and laughter, and that she may change the world, at least as much as she wants to.

Babies bring such joy with them! And you sure have a darling baby there bringing the joy!

p.s. the link to the album didn't work for me. Not sure if it was me or a glitch somewhere else.

I've posted the album separately on FB -- will try to figure out how to make the link work her . . .

What a fortunate child Josie is, to be surrounded by love and happiness -- not to mention her adoring internet fan club. She is perfection.

Vicki, the link works and the photos are beautiful! Especially the one where little Josie is holding your finger. And the last one of you holding her while she is sleeping is awesome! So much love! ��

Of course the greatest gift is her continued good health!

How lovely. What did I notice? - how well wrapped all the parcels were. When I saw the quilt, I wondered who had made it up so quickly and with such complicated pictures. I'm looking forward to reading all about it next time. Josie is doing just fine and we are still waiting!!

She looks like a very contented baby.

Josie is a little doll and so photogenic. It must have been such a great little party. The quilt looks very pretty from the glimpse you gave us. Enjoy your little one as she will grow very fast.
