A Bun in the Oven

Tonight some of my sweet friends gave us a baby shower and it was precious! Mom and I couldn't believe how creative and thoughtful they were with everything. The theme was A Bun in the Oven complete with a little red retro oven, sliders, hamburger cupcakes, sugar cookie french fries and lots of other yummy treats! They all even dressed to match the theme and without knowing it so did I. It was a shower for all my sweet Beltway friends from Bunco, bible study and Life Group. I'm so blessed by the relationships of these women and thankful that God has brought them into my life these past 2 years. They have covered me in prayer, encouraged me, made me laugh (especially Sherry) and shared life with me! We had a wonderful time fellowshiping together last night, playing a fun little Q&A game about my wishes for Jett and looking at all the precious things they brought for our sweet baby boy!

Showering Andrea & Baby Slate

I had the privilege this weekend of helping shower a special friend Andrea and her sweet baby boy Slate. Andrea and I have shared the journey of infertility together and althought our stories aren't identical it has been neat to become mothers together and to get to be pregnant together this time around with our baby boys. I love getting to see God's miracles come about in other couples who have shared the deep longing for a baby! Thank you Lord for the blessing of sweet baby Slate and his big brother Stone!

Her First Date

Ava Kate went on her first date tonight with her daddy! She got all dressed up in the outfit of her choice, she picked out her accessories and mommy even let her have some lipgloss and perfume. She also got to pick out daddy's outfit. Daddy even rang the doorbell and had some flowers when he picked up his special date (yes they were fake ones from the living room but she didn't care). They went to Chic Fil A for a daddy daughter princess date night they were having. They got their a little too early so they made a detour at Target to kill a little time. Target is one of Ava Kate's favorite places to go so I'm sure she didn't mind.
