I don't know if it's something in the water, or if I'm just at the point in my life where my friends are all starting to have babies, but I'm invited to an insane amount of baby showers this summer (maybe this is a result of the insane amount of weddings I attended last year?). When the invites started rolling in, I got nervous. Shower games are, by far, some of my least favorite things in the world.

"What kind of candy bar is melted inside of the diaper?!?" I don't wanna guess. I think it's gross.

"Guess how many safety pins are in this jar!" Why?

"How big is mom's belly?" Well, that just seems like a rude question to ask in the first place.

Maybe I have a general dislike for games? I don't know. But, I decided to do some hunting for some fun, new and different baby shower games. Our friends at iVillage.com came to the rescue!

Some of the new, and seemingly fun games they suggest include "Baby Paparazzi", where you look at a bunch of celebrity kids and have guests guess who their celebrity parent is. And, my personal favorite, "Diaper Change". Where you pass out newborn diapers and have guests write funny and sweet messages of encouragement on the front of them. Those laughs or helpful hints might help mom and dad on some of those sleepless nights.

iVillage has several other fun sounding games listed on their website.
