I was very excited when my friends sister e-mailed me about a surprise baby shower she was holding for my friend Rosalie, as you know this is not a tradition in Ireland to have baby showers and originates from USA.
However Rosalie has American blood so it was very apt to have a baby shower, her sister organized loads of games for the shower, old wife’s tales to guess if the baby was boy or girl. Also guy name, weight and length. Also whether the baby will pick up mum or dads traits… hair, colour eye, feet obviously if its a boy he doesn’t want his mum dainty feet!!
Long story short the poor girl nearly went into labour when she arrived home to a house full of woman and children!
I saw a cake ages ago with a bump, its really cute and prob only opportunity that i’ll ever have to make baby shower cake. It was funny watching Rosalie slice it, she thought it was like doing a C-section on herself!
