The first shower is under our belt and it was a success! It was especially nice to spend time with some of my best friends from home, as well as some of my parents' friends that I hardly ever get to see. The food was absolutely incredible (as if I needed any extra encouragement to eat!), and I received some much needed baby gear.
As I was driving home, I was thinking about how thankful I am for good friends and family members who love me, who are excited about the birth of my first child, and who are willing to help Brian and I provide for her needs. An absolutely overwhelming feeling of thankfulness came over me and I was so humbled by the generosity shown to me earlier in the day. I pray that I will show the same kindness to others!
Here are a few pics from Saturday:
We had 7 hostesses for this shower! Here are Mom (bottom right) and I with 6 of them.
Our 7th hostess, Lindsey, couldn't make it so we took a pic with her mom as her "stand in!" And yes, I am chubby. Let's just get that out in the open. You know you were thinking it anyway.
