Along with all the precious gifts, we also asked the guests to write a letter to baby girl. Each guest pulled a number out of a jar that represented an age. We then got to write her a letter full of wisdom, humor and encouragement for that year of her life. My sister-in-law will keep the letters in a baby book and present them to my niece at each birthday. I picked the number 5, so my niece will read the letter I wrote to her at her baby shower for her fifth birthday. Pretty sweet, huh?
Tomorrow I'll post some of my favorite shots from the maternity shoot that happened right after the shower. That Julia sure knows how to take some pretty pictures!
