Jimmy and I had our baby shower on Saturday, and wow, what an amazing day it was!
Our families planned this sweet afternoon for us, and we could not be more thankful for their hard work and dedication to making the shower so fun, beautiful, and filled with joy.
The shower was hosted at our church, and was catered by a local Italian restaurant. My sister made cookies, we ordered some from a local bake shop, and I made strawberry cupcakes with vanilla buttercream.
My sister-in-law was in charge of decorating, and she made such beautiful arrangements of daisies and mint sprigs in vases with lemons.
My mother-in-law and Jimmy’s sister made adorable succulent favors, and my mom and I came up with a little advice card for each guest to fill out. Jimmy and I have loved reading through all the funny and wise advice our guests jotted down for us.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch and caught up with all of our guests. We were so overjoyed that so many people wanted to come and celebrate the impending arrival of our little girl. What a huge blessing!
We also spent some time opening gifts for our daughter, which was so much fun. She has been provided for in so many ways, from her basic necessities, to cute clothes, and the immense love our friends and families have for her.
Most of all, God has sustained her sweet life for 33 weeks now. It’s just incredible to think about how cared for and loved she already is.
What a sweet, sweet day! Afterwards, we headed home with our baby girl’s gifts and started to go through everything and felt crazy blessed and spoiled all over again.
Things are definitely starting to feel more real, and we cannot wait to meet our little one. God has been so, so good to us!
