April Showers Bring...Babies?

Well, I hope April will bring me a baby!  I don't think Baby M can incubate much longer.  It is time for her to arrive.  The nursery is still awaiting it's finishing touches, but I am too afraid to puncture holes in the newly painted walls to hang my art and framed prints without a second opinion.  Alas, I think this final touch will have to wait until my mother gets to town, which means after baby comes.  Not sure that I trust the husband on this one.  If I could even drag him in there to hold things up and ask for his opinion, he would barely look up and say, "Yeah, looks great there.  Now can I get back to the game?"  Sorry, honey, but you know it's true.

In the meantime, Happy April!  Here is my ode to April Showers....

I love the idea of using an umbrella as a motif on a bridal or baby shower invite.  The literal interpretation is always fun.
