So it has taken me a week to finally get this post up but I got the Flu last week and have been busy (unmotivated, really) and stuff! BUT, I had THE best Baby Shower a girl could ask for or dream about! Honestly, it was PERFECTION! Like a dream, for sure! It was a tea party theme and Court and Jenni went ALL OUT on EVERYTHING! Spending countless hours making everything and finding all the stuff for it! I felt so loved and special! It really meant a lot to me to be surrounded by so many people who I love! We missed a lot of people who couldn't be there (Mostly my Mama) but there were still lots of people there and we all had so much fun! I got SO much fun/cute baby stuff and DIAPERS!! we got TONS of Diapers! YAHOO!! it made it all seem so real that we are going to have a baby so soon! Here are some pics from the night!
Everett was such a good little helper! He loves Uncle Jarom!
These two ladies made all the magic happen!
Courtenay made me the cutest bow board FULL of beautiful, fun, sassy bows! I love it all SO much! I can't stop looking at all the bows and thinking they are all mine! This baby is set and will be so stylish!
Lindsey and Lauren won the present opening game. What is my biggest fear of becoming a mother? It's true, PROJECTILE VOMIT!
Jenni made me this beautiful quilt! It's seriously perfect! I am so impressed with her skills! I love everything about it! I can't wait to snuggle our babe in it!
Most amazing Diaper Cake I have ever seen!
Just a glimpse of the magic before everyone started showing up
They played a couple of games while they ate the delicious food!
And last but not least, me at 35 weeks.
I honestly had the BEST night! Thank you so much Court and Jenni for EVERYTHING! And everyone who came! I am truly grateful!!
Life is moving on and I am starting to feel like time is going by so fast but so SLOW at the same time! I have mixed feelings about not being pregnant anymore, soon. I am mostly just excited to get this baby out and hold her and be able to sleep on my stomach and back again. My feet and hands are starting swell. My back hurts and I pee ALL. THE. TIME! But I think I will miss feeling her move inside of me all the time. She's my little buddy. I know she will be when she comes out, too, but...I don't really know how to explain it! I have so many feelings, I just don't know how to say it. Don't get me wrong, I am SO ready for her to come! I keep dreaming about how it will be when we first see her and bringing her home! It's going to be a dream come true!
One year ago today, we found out we were having twins. Crazy how fast time has gone! I just keep going back to that day and remembering how we felt and now to be expecting our new little Evelyn. We feel so blessed and cannot find words to explain how grateful we are for her already! She is so special to us!
Today also marks one year that we have lived in our apartment! We love it and we love our neighbors!
I didn't realize that it was our "1 year" mark when we took this picture today, but I thought it was appropriate! We call it the fantastic fourplex! :)
Anyway, we are happy and excited for new adventures ahead!
