I had mentioned to her that I loved the idea of a book-themed shower to add to Clara's scant library. So she made these darling garlands with little pink "books" and she invited everyone to bring their favorite children's book for Clara. Amazingly, every book we received was different - no duplicates!
Ginny had prepared nursery rhyme themed games like answering trivia to questions such as "What did Georgie Porgie do that made the girls cry?" or "What time did the mouse run down the clock." I didn't know that 4 and 20 blackbirds were baked in the pie.
Carolyn (the master of all nursery rhymes), Melanie, and Hailey working on their trivia.
Paul was having a really good time as the only guy there. Clara was true to form and slept pretty much the entire time.
Another game we played that I LOVED was coming up with all the words that you can make using the letters of Clara's name. I'm keeping this for her scrapbook.
Then we opened gifts. Everyone was so sweet and generous and Clara got some very thoughtful presents. These blocks were made by our friend Melanie.
Yep, this girl was sooooo sleepy! You would think we work her to the bone at home or something.
This photo is for my mom who wanted to know what Clara wore to the party. I took this photo afterwards while Clara was doing her
daily exercise regimen tummy time.
