This was a lovely idea from our last baby shower. The hosts had guests bring a bead with them (or pick one out once they'd arrived) to be turned into a necklace that can be worn or held during labor as a reminder of all of the people thinking of you and sending love and support.
We certainly appreciate all of the positive thoughts and good energy sent our way, and feel lucky to have so many people excited for us and our soon-to-be expanding family. Thank you all (and thank you Cara for turning them into a necklace!)!
