Well, it seems high time that I get you caught up with my life, starting 5 months ago with the baby shower that my mom and sister hosted for me! It was so very wonderful, I'm such a lucky girl and I could not have asked for a more beautiful and perfect baby shower to welcome our little one into the world. I felt that way then and I feel that way even more so now that I'm looking back at these photos.
In keeping with our gender neutral nursery theme, You Are My Sunshine, the baby shower was riddled with clouds, raindrops, and happy sunshine. Not to mention the delicious treats all the ladies in my family prepared! My mom, sister, and I tend to go all out when planning an event... we just love the details (remember Rachel's Bridal Shower?)! I loved that they had several fun activities planned for our guests in place of a whole bunch of the run-of-the-mill baby shower games.
How adorable are these cupcakes?!
My very favorite activity was having each of our guests paint a onesie for our sweet boy. We are still using these every day! Each person put their own personality into their little painting, seeing these every day makes us feel so very loved =]
And among my favorite gifts is this mobile that my sister-in-law, Kristin, MADE!!! It hangs above our little guy's changing table and he loves to watch it gently twist and sway.
Side note– THAT. BELLY!
Lance and I are so deeply thankful to everyone who showered their love down on our little family that day. And ultimately, the very best gift out of all those that were stacked around me, is having such incredible and loving family & friends surrounding us, who we know are there for us– supporting us and cheering us on.
