Baby Shower

We had our first baby shower on Sunday afternoon. Out of all the hostesses, my house is actually the most centrally located. Knowing that I was having a shower there for my friend Leslie the week before, I knew that the house should remain pretty clean. So offered to have it our home and then everyone could see the nursery. It worked out wonderfully.

Michelle made the cake to match the design and color-scheme of the invitations. She is so creative!

We had a ton of gifts. I cannot tell you how overwhelmed with gratitude Brant and I are.

My sister made me a photography book with several of the maternity photos she took. It was beautiful. I love having this as a keepsake.

My friend Jalah gave me this adorable giraffe outfit! I can't wait to dress this baby girl up in all of her new clothes!

Sister found this at Canton - how irresistibly adorable is this??? A zebra and pink rose cross onsie with the perfect pink tutu! And, she already has a zebra and light pink bow to coordinate!

My Aunt Laurie, Nanny, and cousins Amy and Amanda gave us the swing - an essential item!

Emmalee's Diaper Bag with her name embroidered on it! I also got the coordinating insulated bottle bag (which when be a lunch bag when she gets older) and a coordinating travel bag for trips...it has her name on it too!

This was the special gift from Hon, my great grandmother. Hon made each of her grandchildren when they were born. It was so that each of them could use it for their children. My 2nd cousin, Bryan, and his wife Cindy, were never able to have children, but Bryan still had his blanket from Hon. They decided they wanted someone in the family to have the blanket, but also that it would be greatly cherished. I was honored that Bryan and Cindy wanted Emmalee to have this blanket.

My Meme brought pictures of Hon and I when I was about 3 years old. It was definitely an emotional time for me.

Brant came home with about 20 minutes left in the shower so he was able to see everyone and enjoy the company.

Me and my WONDERFUL friends and hostesses. (From left to right) Michelle, Mary, Me, Jessica and Jill.

I am so blessed to have such amazing friends and family. This little girl's closet is getting quite full and Brant and I cannot wait until she is here. 33 weeks down, less than 7 to go!!!!!!
