Babies, Babies, Babies

That is my world right now - BABIES! And not just mine, but everywhere I look! Right now in my Sunday School class, there are 6 - did you hear me - 6 babies due! It was 7, but Heather had baby Lane 2 weeks ago. Last week there were 3 at my office, but one lady had baby McKenna on Sunday! If you don't want a baby, then don't drink my water! But I will say that I have had so much fun living in Babyland.

Last Saturday, we had a baby shower at my house for Leslie and Baby Baylor. Baby Baylor is due about 4 weeks before Emmalee. Leslie and I have loved sharing great bargains on clothes with each other and helping each other prepare for motherhood. I can tell you that it has been so wonderful to have friends that are pregnant at the same time I am. Leslie and I can't wait for our baby girls to grow up together!

As the southern Baptist say, here is our "spread."
Baylor's room is decorated in owls, so we decided to keep the theme going. I found these great paper owl templates online, and just used different patterned scrapbook paper to create these great cake toppers.

I used the same pattern and technique to create these decorations. I just glued a clothes pin to the back, went into my backyard and found some good twigs, and put them in a vase with green Easter grass!

This is the name banner we used to decorate the living room!

Today I got the pleasure of going to lunch with a dear friend of mine, Jessica Cowart. Jess and I have been friends since college. We had a delicious lunch at La Madeline - their tomato basil soup is to-die-for! Well Jess isn't going to be able to come to my baby shower this weekend, so she gave me my gift at lunch. She and her mom handmade this special blanket for Emmalee Caroline. It is simple beautiful and matches her room soooo perfectly! I just LOVE it!!

Well Sister and I are going shopping all day tomorrow in Canton! I'm a litter nervous because I'm SURE my ankle will be swollen to the size of mangos by the end of the day, but there are a few more things I would really like to get to finish up the nursery. As soon as I'm finished, I promise to post some pictures.

Then I have my first baby shower on Sunday. I am so anxious because I received a FaceBook message from one of my great aunts this week that said I had a package on the way from Hon. Hon was my great grandmother who passed away about 20 years ago. I still remember her and her curly white hair! The message said that I couldn't open the package until the shower on Sunday so that my MeMe (my grandmother) could tell what it was all about. I am so excited to know that I will have something so special to share with Emmalee.

Well I hope you all have a fabulous weekend! I know I plan to!

You better post a picture of what you get from your Hon. I love presents like that! I got a gift from my husband's grandmother when we got married and she had passed away about 10 years ago.I never met her, but she made sure to mark this particular item as needing to be given to my husband upon his wedding day.
