Thanks for all your kind words yesterday, my friends. Both me and my little GIRL are feeling very loved! Here are some pix from the pop-up baby shower my mom, sister, aunts and cousins threw for me last weekend in Miami.
My aunt Nancy pawed through hundreds of antique baby block beads to make us all an adorable name necklace.
I got three: one for me, one for Baby Lagro Fletcher and a bracelet to bring home for Angus. They’ll look cute layered over the corner of a family picture in the baby’s room!
Poufs, baby bottles filled with candies and amazingly good sugar cookies. The girls brought everything with them to Miami and transformed the restaurant table in minutes.
Shamrock tissue paper covered an Irish sweater
…exactly like the one Angus wore in 1977.
Happy cousins. Katie on the left is responsible for actually getting me to the party. I wanted to sleep through what was supposed to be a family cocktail hour (pregnant ladies are tired!), but she texted my sister, who was about ready to kill me for ruining all their hard work, that Martha Stewart was in the bar. I was only about 10 minutes late and very surprised to see a party and, alas, no Martha. Clever girls.
Thank you, ladies, for such a beautiful and thoughtful surprise! I loved it!

Hooray! A baby girl! Love the little Irish sweater and the sneaky text from your cousin. I wonder if Martha knows she has the power to make even a tired pregnant lady rally?
