The Creation of a Disney Baby

Before the birth of my son, my sister and 2 sisters-in-law decided to throw me a marvelous baby shower.  Knowing the name would be Noah, my sister suggested a Noah's Ark theme.  I declined and said "um, how about Mickey Mouse?"  Little did I know, this party would push the love up so many levels.  

so many hidden mickeys!
My sister and mom flew in from Florida, and my sister-in-law, Laura hosted at her house.  The decorations she made would impress Martha Stewart and she left no detail out.  The cakes were polka-dotted, mouse-style, and there were Mickeys and Minnies everywhere.  She made those Mickey cookies by hand and even had enough after her dog ate several..  The pretzels were chocolate dipped and covered in Mickey sprinkles.

Nothing was left uncovered.  The favors (m&ms) and game prizes were decked out Mickey style (below).  Even in gifts, we stocked up on Mickey clothes, toys, and blankets.  Thanks to Adam's parents, we even received the awesome Vintage Mickey bedding set that I had spotted.  Those Mickey and Minnie dolls (pictured right) are now favorite toys of Noah's and he sleeps with Minnie every night!
Almost on overload...

The party was fantastic and overwhelming all at the same time.  And, coming up on a year ago.  How is that possible?  And now, he's most definitely a Disney baby.  He's been sick today and what helped cheer him up?  The theme songs of his favorite shows (the shows don't actually interest him all that much): Little Einsteins, Jungle Junction, and of course, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse.  

If you're interested in seeing some more pictures from that baby shower, I'll add them on our facebook page.  Be sure to check us out!
