Virtual Baby Shower #2!

Congratulations Megan on your baby boy!

Due: February 20, 2008
Location: Tennessee
Baby Name:

Well I can try to make this short! I joined the army at 19 and met my husband while serving. We got pregnant and married within our first year together. He's sill ARMY so i got out after serving for 2 years to be with our daughter. 13 days after she was born he left for Afghanistan. Making it back for her first birthday was lucky! So we wanted another baby and decided to try about 3 months after he returned and got pregnant RIGHT away! Finding out it was a boy was exciting! He almost had to leave for Iraq but has had a messed up ankle since Afghanistan and got switched to another company for a little more laid back job while he awaits surgery. SOOOO lucky this time he won't be going to Iraq....which would have been only a month or two after the baby is born and he would have missed everything again! Well both our families live far away and on opposite coasts so we wont be seeing them much after this baby...it's expensive to fly! But we are very happy about this second child and I can' wait.....really! haha!

Here are a few things we suggest for your shower:

Centerpiece (check out Hostess with the Mostess' website for more great ideas), Ducky invitations, Egg place settings and favors, Baby Bunch (gift for mom and baby AND decoration), Well Wishes tree...

And, to drink...
We recommend:

Lemon Shake

6 oz can frozen lemonade concentrate
2 c. vanilla ice cream
1 1/2 c. club soda

  1. Combine all ingredients in a blender & cover.
  2. Blend till smooth & serve immediately.

And, now...on to the gifts!

From Sweet Taia, 2 hair clips for the "big sister." We wouldn't want her to feel left out (After all, it WILL be around her birthday! So, congratulations "big sister" and Happy Birthday!)

Boca Beth would like to give a Boca Beth Beginner set! Let the learning begin!

Tots on the Go would like to give a Royal Heinie Diaper Bag - Perfect for all of baby's essentials...

Now It's Personal Confections would like to send you a half dozen ducky cookies!

Pretty Posh Princess would like to send a lime green tutu for the "big sister."

Mere Minerals would like to give a $15 gift certificate for their store!

Megan, Congratulations from all of us. We wish you only the best!

¡ Felicitaciones Megan ! That is, congratulations Megan from Beth Butler, founder of the Boca Beth Program. We will be sending out your Boca Beth bilingual fun that will sport a hand puppet BOCA for your daughter to use as she 'teaches' her new brother Spanish with our sing along songs! And maybe she will even let him color in our bilingual coloring/activity book as he gets a bit older!

Happy Educating! ¡Sea feliz educando!
