Baby Showers!

I have been blessed with three AMAZING baby showers!! I can hardly believe that my husband and I have only been in LA for a little over a year and a half. We already have a great community to call home here.

My first shower was thrown by one of my girlfriends at work. She started one month after I did and we bonded quickly. I actually look forward to getting to work and seeing her in the morning! We frequently bounce ideas off of each other about patients we are seeing, and the collaboration is so much fun.

She recently had a little girl who just turned 7 months old. We already have plans for their futures together. As long as we are in charge of their play dates and friends, our girls will be the best of friends!

My mother-in-law and my sister-in-laws also had a baby shower for me. I’m not sure I ever imagined I would have a poolside baby shower, I’m so lucky!

Every baby born since then has spent their first few weeks in this bassinet. My husband, his sisters, and his nieces have all been here. The last three babies were boys, so the bassinet got a baby girl update.  Our girl will be baby #20!

My nurses had an incredible surprise baby shower for me at work. Check out these adorable little containers, they were filled with pink m&m’s.

  1. This is so exciting Erica! Congratulations. Having a baby is so exciting and you deserve to be spoiled – the baby too 🙂 I love the tradition of the bassinet too – so special.
