Showered - Parts 2 and 3

*warning- photo overload*

Since I am trying really, really hard to be better at updating on the Little Miss Thing (and no, that won't be her name.. we're deciding to keep that a secret), I wanted to share with you all pictures of my other two baby showers!

Two Saturdays ago, an incredibly sweet group of girls threw me a tea party baby shower. I feel so blessed to have friends who would coordinate such a wonderful event for me, while working AND while living in different cities. Thank you Nicole, Molly and Cassy! I love and appreciate you all so much! Below are just a few of the hundreds of pictures we took. And how cute is this little tea house? I loved all the time and effort they spent working on the details.

Thank you again to all my girls who threw the shower and the ones who came as guests! This little girl is very lucky to have such sweet aunties. :)


And this last weekend, hubs and I packed up our car and headed home for a baby shower his family had planned for us! We had the best time. It was nice having hubs there with me as we opened gifts. Watching him 'ooooh' and 'aweeee' all the little dresses was priceless! : )

I feel very blessed to have so many people in our lives who love us and are excited for this baby! Our families and friends are just the best.

Mr. Photographer, I think I'm ready for my close-up!

We had our 3/4D ultrasound two weekends ago and seeing our daughter was amazing. We were so excited to see her again, since we had not seen her in almost 12 weeks! I have been looking forward to this for two entire months and it was the best 30 minutes of my life. :)

I am still in awe of just how much she already looks like a little person. And seeing her smile at us melted our hearts completely!

And now, when we think about our baby girl we can actually visualize her adorable, precious face! Not only did we get to see some of her sweet little features, but best of all we got to watch her move and play the whole time! It was an incredible experience. We saw her play with her feet, try to put them in her mouth, yawn, move her hands and, of course, best of all flash that little grin over and over again! She's definitely a crowd pleaser. Even our ultrasound tech could not believe how much she was smiling! I hope we have one happy baby! Or maybe she felt her Mommy smiling at her. :)

Any ideas on who she looks like? So far, the popular majority says that she looks like her Mama. ::blushes with excitement::

And now that we've had a chance to see her, one thing that’s been really getting to me lately is just pure excitement. I can’t wait to meet her! Who will she be like? Will she be blessed with her mother’s witty, fabulous personality and amazing taste in shoes? ;) Or is she going to be a sports loving, beer drinking, genius/computer geek like her dad?

I can’t wait to meet this amazing little person and spend every day getting to know her. 7 MORE WEEKS!

My new view?


Where did my feet go? I can hardly even see them now. While my baby bump might have taken a while to show, I definitely think that it's making up for lost time now! Every morning when I wake up it looks and feels a little bigger than the day before. And I am loving every second of it. Except when it's time to put on my shoes, and after minutes of grunting, I realize that I can no longer bend over and have to sit down. And yes, I am still wearing heels. I keep saying that I'll have to retire them soon, but it's so much harder than I thought :)

Happy Monday, all. Hope it's the begging of a wonderful week!
