Via Twitter, Teen Mom 2 star Leah Messer Calvert announced that she was the guest of honor at a baby shower over the weekend.
“So excited to see all of my family and friends today! #BabyShower,” she tweeted. “I truly appreciate both my momma and mother in law!”
Leah and husband Jeremy Calvert are expecting a baby girl this winter, and they’ll need plenty of supplies. Big sisters Aliannah and Aleeah are already 3 years old, and chances are that Leah gave away their baby things a while back. There are only so many onesies you want to hang onto, and once your little one starts sitting at the table and eating with the rest of the family, that high chair really gets in the way.
The one thing Baby Girl Calvert probably didn’t get at the shower: an infant car seat. Leah and Jeremy already bought a Britax model in a cute cow-print pattern two weeks ago.
Now, of course, there are a few things we’re curious to know. For instance: Will the baby have her own room, and if so, what will the nursery decor be? It’s always fun to come up with a fresh color scheme when a new family member comes along.
Since her big sisters are twins who often wear identical or complementary outfits, will the baby be getting “little sister” ensembles to make them a matching set? Or will she make her own unique fashion mark?
And – the big question – when will she get here? Maybe not quite as soon as you hope…
Back on January 7, Leah announced, “It’s so crazy our little girl weighs over 3 lbs.” That would put her at about her 31st week of pregnancy. Assuming she carries to a normal 40-week term, the baby would be due the first week of March.
But the baby shower was timed perfectly. Now Leah can set up the baby equipment at her leisure and enjoy a few more weeks of the nesting period – and the relative calm of having only two children! In a couple of weeks, she’ll be seeing the doctor weekly and watching for signs of labor.
Hope Leah posts some shower pictures soon! We’re all just suckers for those itty-bitty baby clothes.
