Laura and Jay's "sprinkle!"

So, as you may have read in a previous blog post, my brother and sister-in-law are expecting baby boy #2 very soon! Since they already have a baby boy and all the fun things that go along with one, they opted not to have an elaborate baby shower. Instead... we just had a "sprinkle!"

We honored them Sunday afternoon at my mom's house with a casual dinner with family and "sprinkled" them with diapers and baby wipes. Because what mother and father-to-be again could not use diapers and wipes??!

We had a fantastic "barbecue chicken on the grill" dinner with baked beans, potato salad, poppyseed cole slaw, garden salad and bread. In the words of Rachel Ray... Yum -O! We also had a little game for anyone who wanted to play. We decided that since Laura had such a LONG and involved labor with Max that we should all guess how long it would take her to deliver this little guy. Her labor with Max was roughly 3o plus hours. So, everyone wrote down their guess on a slip of paper and placed it in a jar. Whenever Baby boy Upchurch #2 makes his debut we'll see who won the "prize!" Let's hope for Laura it is less than before.

We are so excited about meeting this new little one Jay and Laura. And excited to see how Max will respond to being the big brother! We'll be anxiously awaiting October 11th!
