While Kate Middleton can barely even get out of bed, Blake Lively threw an elaborate fall-themed baby shower. Lively exhibited her vegetation-filled extravaganza in two Preserve posts: Bringing Up Baby and Preserve Celebrations: Falling For Family. Adorable children and wooden toy cameras were passed around, cake was eaten, and onesies were dyed.
It appears that most/all of Blake's friends are pregnant, just like her, or they are just props for this fertile-themed function. At least she knows what she's in for, relishing the time before "3am screams, seemingly impossible amounts of poop and having a favorite shirt covered in reflux."
