loving every minute of becoming a mom

It's Baby Shower time to celebrate Maggie Claire!

This shower was actually 2 weeks ago, but I've just been a little too exhausted to post pictures and updates!
This was mainly my small group friends, student ministry volunteers, & some girls from the church. We had such a great time, I don't think I have laughed that hard in a very long time!

This is me holding up Maggie's first monogrammed gift! I loved it, and ever since then, I have been getting so many things with her name and initials monogrammed and I love all of it! :)
These are the wonderful ladies who threw the shower for me!
Sara, me, April, & Lauren- Thank you so much girls!!!
Such lovely sweet treats, the cupcakes are from "the cupcake store" where my friend Sarah works, but she couldn't come, so she dropped off some adorable cupcakes!!!! I wanted to taste the green one with pink icing. It was watermelon flavored!!! So good! This is actually the first cupcake from their that I actually like!!
{In case you were wondering, there was no way I ate that whole cupcake, I think all the sugar from the icing would have put me in a sugar coma!!!}
The food table: notice the ragged fabric/ribbon decoration hanging on the front of the table,April made it and I'm going to use it to hang in Maggie's room! It's so cute! I'll have to take a picture of it when it's hung so you can see it!
This party was so fun, and I loved how they served a meal instead of a bunch of finger foods! We had lasagna, salad, and bread!
Me and Bethany, we both had "embellished necklines" on our dresses! We were definitely rockin it! hehe.
These are just a few of my crazy friends, Kelly & Brittany(Sparkle). They are too funny!
me & my pretty momma, I just love her, and all she is doing for me during this pregnancy! I think even if I didn't have any showers, we would still be set on everything she has given to us! I love her!!! {oh yes, and she let me wear her cute jack roger sandals} She is so funny too, she told me the other night that it looks like babies-r-us threw up in my house! Well, that's what happens when I don't have any time to organize all the baby stuff and put it away! hehe. But thanks to her, she is helping me put everything away!
Diaper Bag! If you remember back to this post, I was super excited about the petunia pickle bottom line diaper bag at target! Well, two of my fashionable friends{they have great style and the cutest clothes} gave me the diaper bag! I am in love with it and already have a few things packed in it for the hospital! :)
We played a game where everyone was asked to bring a baby picture of themself and everyone at the shower had to guess who was who as a baby! It was so fun! {Mine is the second one down on the right}
I cannot be more grateful for all my family and friends who have been throwing me showers!!! I have actually already had 3 showers and I still have one more that some of my besties are thowing me on Sept. 11th!!!! I just can't wait, the invites went out this week, and when I saw them I just fell in love! I'll have to post the invites afterwards when I have pictures from the event! I just can't wait!!! :)

Mike and I are getting so excited about becoming parents, we have been going to doctors appointments & getting all of the things we are going to need for her, and everything seems to be falling into place! It is still so crazy to me that she will be here in less than 6 weeks!!!! I already love her so much! :)
