My Baby Shower

My baby shower was so fun! My sister, mom, and aunts did such a nice job with everything. They definitely made it a special day for me!

My shower was alphabet-themed, so there were all sorts of adorable decorations: baby blocks, strings of letters, and little signs labeling all of the different foods and drinks.

The menu included sandwiches, salads, and a number of brunch favorites.

Including a variety of (Q is for) quiches.

And, of course, the dessert table was packed with tons of delicious treats. My family knows how much I love dessert!

There were carrot cake and Oreo cupcakes, two of my very favorites!

And chocolate!! So much chocolate! Chocolate-covered strawberries, chocolate-covered pomegranate seeds, and chocolate-covered Oreos!

My sister also coordinated a bunch of baby shower games.

I got 7 out of 10!

And then it was time to open presents!

Oh, there were so many gifts for Baby Haupert. The photo above is just a fraction of them!

Our families keeps asking us about Baby Haupert’s name, but Mal and I are keeping it a secret until he’s born. Right now, we’re telling everyone his first name is “Hippity” as in “Hippity Haupert.”

I received so many amazing gifts from family and friends, but the baby clothes were definitely some of the highlights for me.

Baby boy clothes can be so incredibly cute!

Mal’s epic pug family shirt!


My baby blanket, Harry, also made an appearance at the shower. My mom kept him safe and sound over the years and even had him repaired with a new light blue satin edge.

I was so happy and surprised to see Harry after all of these years, I immediately burst into tears. It was such a nice gift and now I can give it to Baby H!

CrossFit ladies!

My sis and me!

Parents-to-be and a pug who has no idea what he’s in for once Hippity arrives!


P.S. A big shout out to Kate (here’s a link to her Etsy shop), who sent my sister the paper decorations for my shower. Weren’t they adorable?!



  1. I absolutely love that dress! If only they had it in non-maternity ;-). The shower looks like it was a blast — and lots of presents!!

  2. So awesome! I teared up when I saw your baby blanket, because I totally understand how special that is, then I scrolled to the next picture and saw you were tearing up to and that made me choke right up! My children have completely rejected my attempts at giving them my old teddy, Hug Bear, that I slept with until I was 25. But they won’t ever get my blanky, because as a 34 year-old adult, I STILL sleep with it! 🙂

  3. LOVE your dress!! Where did you get it? I’ve been in search for a dress for my baby shower for weeks with no luck!

  4. What a cute baby shower! Your sister did a fantastic job putting together such a wonderful, creative and cute party for you! Congrats!

  5. What a great shower!! And I agree, baby boy clothes can be so fun!! I alternate between putting C in scull and crossbones vs. super preppy clothes. There is little cuter than a baby in cargo pants and a hoodie!

  6. Your alphabet theme was so adorable! I love that idea. And re-gifting the baby blanket was so very sweet. Looks like a lovely time! Congratulations!

  7. That dress is perfect for your stage of pregnancy! I see so many “bad choices” on dresses that people pick because they just don’t look flattering but you definitely picked a winner and I will remember this 🙂 it looks like it was such a special and memorable day!

  8. I totally love the theme of the baby shower! That was a really sweet gift from your mom. Glad you had a great day!
