I went to a baby shower last night for a young couple from our church. She is due in just a couple of weeks. Baby showers are not popular over here, but I’m glad that they gave her one to celebrate the new baby. They don’t know what they are having yet.
Midwives are super popular over here. I haven’t heard of one person that has had a doctor deliver their baby- I think midwives only call the doctor if they need to go to surgery or have an emergency. Since I watched the BBC show “Call the Midwife” , I wish I had been a midwife (and lived in London in the 1950’s). It is one of those shows that you feel like you know the characters personally and wish you could be friends with them in real life.
It was a surprise so that is why the second shot is a little fuzzy.
It was fun to spend an evening with friends. I am really savoring the time here now that it is coming to an end.
