This past weekend was EVENTFUL! Literally! Paul and I headed up to Tallahassee on Friday, where we met our friends for dinner. Then Saturday morning was my first baby shower, that night we headed to an engagement party, and on Sunday we headed to a gender reveal party! So much excitement for one weekend!
On Saturday morning, my sister hosted a baby shower for me with some help from my mom and a couple of my friends. When I walked into her house, I cried… on more than 1 occasion. I think the tears were triggered, because 1. This is happening. I am really having a baby, and I never thought I’d see the day where someone was throwing a baby shower for me! 2. It was perfect. The entire house looked like a party you see on Pinterest, but it never works out that way when you do it yourself. The pictures don’t do it justice, because these are off my iPhone, because I’m just too impatient to wait for my sister to send me the pretty ones.
Let’s pause for a second to admire this cake… have you ever seen a more beautiful cake?! My brother’s girlfriend has become the family cake baker/decorator, because I mean obviously she’s good at it! Not to mention, once we cut into the cake, she had each layer a darker shade to match the outside of the cake. Perfection.
Now that we’ve admired the cake, let’s take a look at this onesie. My sister is the crafty one of the family. I draw stick figures, she makes things. Lots of things that are always adorable. So I saw this onesie, and I thought she bought it from a store or off Etsy… No, she made it. Of course she did. So I see the onesie, and I cry. Again. It’s a little hard to read, but it says, “This little light of mine”.
Paul and I received so many amazing gifts for Aubrey, and we were so blown away by everyone’s generosity. We are so lucky to have such amazing people in our lives, but I think Aubrey is even more lucky, because she isn’t even here yet, and already she is loved more than she knows. We cannot thank everyone enough for everything! We love you all!
My niece, Kennedy, might just be the best present helper. She was so excited to rip the paper off, I don’t even think she ever saw what was wrapped. She just loves tearing into the presents. At one point, my sister said, “Kennedy, let Auntie open her present okay?”. Kennedy looked right at me, and in the sweetest voice said, “MAY I help you open the present?”… Not can I, but may I! There is no way I can say no to that! That little girl is just adorable.
I’ve mentioned before that 3 of my friends in Tallahassee are also expecting. I think it is so exciting that there are 4 little summer babies all due within 2 months of each other! Here are three of us, but Whitney had already left and we missed the photo op! All three of them are having little boys, and Aubrey is the only little girl of the group! It’s so fun getting to experience pregnancy for the first time, with 3 other first time moms. I just wish we lived close to them all again!
It was such a beautiful and fun baby shower. I couldn’t have asked for anything more! It was so great to see all my friends in Tallahassee, and to celebrate the precious little girl growing inside of me! Thank you so much to everyone!
