Showered with Love

Today, I was lucky enough to have another baby shower and what a shower it was!!! Two of my best friends, Kristin Fisher and Holli Adams teamed up to host a fabulous event here in Fort Wayne for many of the special women in my life. I can't begin to explain how touching it was to be surrounded by over 20 of my closest family and friends and receive such amazing gifts in order to prepare for our baby boy. We had beautiful weather, fabulous food and plenty of presents!

Thank Heaven for Little Boys, indeed! (And yummy cakes, too!)

What a delicious spread!

With Grandma Judy, Nana Connie and Grandma Dawn. (No chance this baby will be spoiled by them, right??)

With the hostesses and wonderful friends...

Baby Erb was blessed with so many fabulous gifts once again! He now officially has more clothes than Kevin and me combined, and has also received lots of the essentials off our registries. Truly, everyone there was beyond generous and we are repeatedly reminded of how fortunate we are to have so many caring people in our lives who are also anxiously-awaiting the arrival of this sweet baby. His aunts got his swing (yay!), my friends got him a fantastic myriad of toys, books, clothes, bath gear and accessories, and his grandmothers and great-grandmothers have contributed to things for his room, including the gorgeous crib bedding, much-needed closet organization, and even the changing table. (Although the changing table fiasco is another story for another time!) Thank you again to Kristin and Holli for all their planning, to Robyn Fisher for lending her beautiful home and to all my family and friends for their love and generosity in making this such a special day!

We are definitely counting down the days until September 3rd- less than 50 to go! I begin week 34 tomorrow and other than some new-found joint pain, have been feeling pretty good. We've recently gotten a slight break from this July humidity and the cankles have been much better this week! I obviously get tired easily, but thankfully, Kevin is constantly coming to my rescue and helping with tasks around the house. We begin our set of childbirth classes this coming Tuesday night which should be interesting- we'll keep you posted!
