Today, my class had a surprise baby shower for me and Saunders IV! My room mom and my paraprofessional had put the whole thing together with the help of a few other parents. It was so sweet, and the kids were beyond excited about it. We started the festivities with a little breakfast of sausage balls, donut holes, fruit, and drinks. Then, I got to open all the presents my students had brought for SJ4! He got lots and lots of diapers and wipes, several cute little outfits, a Target gift card, baby booties, and a handmade blanket from Jonnathan's mom. We had a great time celebrating together!
The kids think my belly is huge, so this is a picture of them staring at it in amazement:

That night, Katie Anne had a great time going through all of SJ4's gifts with me and helping me organize them:
