Last weekend we celebrating family and new life with a baby shower in honor of Kaela, Gintas, and their soon-to-arrive little nugget.
Sadly, Gintas – who is an Marine officer currently in training to be a pilot – wasn’t able to get time off to come to Chicago, but we were still excited to see Kaela and spend time with her. I love these photos of her snuggling with her niece, Eila.
Kaela’s family did a beautiful job creating “A Very Hungry Caterpillar” themed food and decorations! If you’ve ever read this adorable children’s book, each page is filled with a different type of food that the caterpillar voraciously devours.
I think everyone’s favorite dessert was this cupcake caterpillar, created using cupcakes from Chicago Cupcake.
TWO new nieces had been born within the past few weeks and all the family was incredibly excited to meet Maja and Freya.
I love this look on Vija’s face as her older sister, Lina, meets Freya for the first time.
Everyone wanted to look at the babies.
…not to mention pose with all the cute nieces!
BABIES. Seriously, is there anything better?
Congratulations, Gintai and Kaela! Can not wait till August!
