On my mother's side of the family, Ashton has a lot of girl cousins. Miss M who is going off to college this year. Miss E who is 7. Miss E who is 5. Miss M who is 3. Well 7 year old Miss E will be getting a baby brother this September. Mr. L. So there will finally be a boy on this side of the family and Miss E will have a sibling.
So before we set off to the baby shower, Ashton came to me very concerned. "I don't want to go to the baby shower" she said. It was a much different tune than earlier where she was excited and wanted to ensure her cousins would be there to play with. I asked her why. "I don't want to get wet."
She thought we were going to bathe the baby together. I told her it was a party instead, and she wanted to know the party theme. But she was still a bit unsure, curious about the baby.
When we arrived I showed her Miss J. and her belly holding the baby. I showed her all the gifts and cake and Ashton seemed satisfied. Then she went off to play with her cousins.
She had a great time. She played, she ate, she was disappointed to leave at the end of it.
We can't wait to meet Mr. L!
