I am incredibly grateful to have such thoughtful, caring friends here in Amman. They organised such a lovely event for our little baby to be. It was a book themed shower with many colours. My friends here know that I love rainbow, bright colours not nasty pastel colours so they made sure that no one bought anything pastel :-) In the middle of the shower, I got quite emotional and blurted out, "I just hope that this little one likes rainbows as much as I do!" One of my friends said, "She'll probably be a goth and like nothing but black!" Oh dear - I can't imagine a child of mine not enjoying colours.
Our friend, Jill, had her baby boy. Here, Arthur is a week old and dressed in stripes. He is a little cutie!
This is my dear friend Lindsey who helped organise the party :-)
Amazing cupcakes made by my friend's sister. They were so good, no one wanted to eat them so I took them in for my students who enjoyed them.
This is my dear friend Lisa who hosted and organised the party.
Two more lovely ladies from my school knitted a blanket for our little baby to be! I am so touched by their love, generosity, kindness and creativity. This little one is going to be very lucky indeed :-)
