This past week, I was honored to attend an event put on by the AMAZING organization Operation Shower!
This incredible organization throws baby showers for military families expecting a new bundle and are experiencing or have recently experienced deployment. Many of these moms are going through pregnancy, labor and delivery all by themselves! Truly an invaluable organization to help celebrate those that are fighting for our freedom.
The event was held just a hope, skip and a jump from the local military base Camp Pendleton. It was sponsored by both Operation Shower and Babies-r-us. The Bistro Baby themed party was hosted by two party planning extraordinaires: Jenn Sbranti from Hostess with the Mostess along with Jeanne Benedict.
Within 10 minutes of sitting down, I was in tears. Tears of joy of course! Seeing these deserving families being celebrated with all kinds of treats, baby gear, clothes and so much more. I was fortunate enough to be flanked between two incredible shower honorees! One had just two weeks to go with what I would consider the cutest little belly ever. (I’m pretty sure I was twice the size of her at 38 weeks =)) On the other side, was a sweet mom with a new born baby boy who was just a few weeks old. *** I totally got to snuggle and smell his sweet little head ***
As with any shower, we sat and chatted like old friends about how their pregnancy was going or had gone, how their are feeling and what to expect. The room was filled with all kinds of cute bellies and a few little babes that had their own timing and came a bit early.
Thank you Operation Shower for all that you do for these families!
