Other Rachel Happenings

My friends at work threw an awesome shower for Rachel.  There was so much delicious food that I couldn't come close to trying it all but everything I had was great. 
My co-workers are the best!  Rachel got lots of cute stuff.  I opened her first newborn size outfit in this picture.  It looks so small!  I can't believe she'll wear clothes that tiny.  I washed her first load of clothes on Friday.  I know I won't be excited about that after it happens on a regular basis but it was fun to try to fold all the tiny clothes.
Caroline and I worked hard to arrange Rachel's closet.  I had been cramming everything in there because I really wasn't sure what to do with it all.  With Caroline's help, I got it all organized and put away blankets and 0-3 month clothes in her dresser.
She even has her own luggage tags.  A friend from work got two of these for Rachel.  The other one just says Rachel and it is on the same background.  Too cute!!!!!!

My New Baby!

No, Rachel's not here yet but I do have  a new baby.  A group of my wonderful friends all went in together and got me a Kate Spade diaper bag.  It's amazing b/c I would NEVER buy it for myself but I have drooled over it since I found out I was pregnant.  They gave it to me at my work shower.    I am so lucky to work with such thoughtful and generous people.  My friend, Sally laughs and says Rachel won't need anything until she is 16.  I'm almost ready to agree with her.
