Kara is one of my oldest friends, oldest as in we have known each other since we were...8 and 9...now we are (almost) 26, and 27. She's expecting her and her husbands first baby due in mid July. So today we had a final hurrah for her...pretty much a baby shower, and men folk were invited too.
...Alys and Nathan
and we had to think of boys names for all the letters of the alphabet...there were some interesting ones! And there was a sweep to see when the baby would arrive (date and time), length and weight!
Kara has asked me to be her back up birth partner...in case Nathan faints or something. Which is a little nerve racking but a huge honour. It's an exciting time, and it was wonderful to have an afternoon of fun to celebrate with Nathan and Kara. They requested we didn't by gifts, but that we gift in another way, like offering to make a meal, or coming to wash the towels, clean the toilet whatever, to help out while they settle in to parenthood. So we're probably going to make them some lasagne! :)
