|So cute! Even Annika noticed.|
Even so, as we left the port, we knew we wanted to throw Callie a baby shower.
|Usually the baby-to-be gets to keep the diapers. Since we were traveling light however, Annika borrowed them first. Rumor is that Baby Bump doesn't want them back.|
Some of the guests:
|Grandpa's wife Elaine was kind enough to share her stateroom for the party. Here she is (right) pictured with her sister-in-law Beverly.|
|Brooklyn with my cousin Kathryn LaFroscia. Kate will be a high school Senior this year.|
|Sisters: Alison LaFroscia and Cathy Ann Andrus.|
|Party games and favors all ready to go.|
|So the party was almost a surprise. Papa K accidentally let something slip at the last moment, resulting in a comment on how he ought to pitch himself overboard. We're glad he didn't.|
|We originally talked about breaking tradition by inviting the boys as well, but there are only so many people you can fit in a single stateroom.|
|Teeny tiny baby clothes!|
|And who can resist the eensy weensy shoes?|
|I don't remember exactly, but I'm pretty sure this picture was taken after someone said something that hinted towards how Bump came to exist. Sorry little sis, secret's out!|
|The younger generation was far too busy reading all of the great kid books to care about the conversation.|
|A pug in a box. Does it get any cuter than that?|
|Check out the curly tail!|
|And a belly button too. Bee bo!|
|Aw, there's even a hoodie to keep Puggy dry in the Washington rain.|
Do you think she likes it?
We all know who this present really belongs to. Sorry Bump.
And now a photo of the puppy with the creator, Alesia. This lovely gal actually taught herself to knit and made the whole thing. AMAZING.
|Wish my photo were as great as your talent, Alesia!|
Formal night seemed the perfect occasion for the big revelation. Before opening the pink and blue cookie boxes, everybody had to choose either a blue mustache or pink hairbow, depending on their prediction of a boy or a girl. Here we are explaining the process to Grandpa:
We asked Annie to pick a hairbow or a mustache, but she just picked her nose instead.
Team Pink: Adam, Alison, Janet, Elaine, Gregory, Katelyn, NomiAnn, Brooklyn, and Alesia
Team Blue: Callie, Kara, Annika, Talia, Papa K, Uncle Jay, Katelyn, Jeanette, Uncle Bob, Alex, and Jason (who is behind the camera, of course)
Waffling Pink Bowtie: Grampa Grampa.
Pink for the victory!
|Callie, you may have worn blue, but Adam was right. Bump's a girl!|
|Ready or not, Momma, here she comes!|
Congrats again to the growing Wilhoit clan. You've got this whole parenting thing in the box.
