A Surprise Baby Shower

So in the past few days Kevin was acting a bit weird. Especially last night; he was dashing round, up and down from our loft a few times like a secret agent on a mission.  As usual, I was in bed watching telly and was too lazy to check what he was up to.

But it all became clear when I got up the following day and went downstairs.  Our living room was beautifully decorated with blue balloons and cute garlands, completed with a whole table of finger sandwiches and freshly backed scones all made by my darling Kevin!  There were a pile of nicely wrapped gift boxes as well…  I have heard the term ‘baby shower’ before and since all my close friends were actually quite far away, I never expected one. But there it was! Organised by my love and kept it so sweetly intimate, I was extremely touched by the effort Kevin had gone through to show how much he cares for Flynn and me, and how ready he was to meet our bundle of joy!

Like Christmas morning, after breakfast there comes the gift opening time; how exciting!  Oh my, Flynn and I were so spoilt with all these cute and beautiful presents from Kevin! I won’t go into details to list what they were but we were definitely showered with the greatest love from this golden-hearted man!
