We have had 3 showers in the last 10 days. 2 in Auburn and 1 here in Birmingham. The love and excitement from all our friends and families has been truly overwhelming. This morning I sat in the glider in Georgia's room and looked around at all the gifts we have received from our loved ones and was quickly brought to my knees in thanksgiving for all we have been blessed with. I cannot wait to share this little girl with each of you who have graciously shared your love and support with us. I long to be the kind of friend that I find in so many of you...I hope I get the opportunity to return the blessing!
Here's some pictures to enjoy...
Here's Cindy, Me, Robin & Susan. They hosted one of the showers in Auburn AND they all are betting that I'll wear themed sweaters when Georgia gets here...That will be the day!Harold's sister, Michelle, surprised me and came all the way from Tulsa, OK to be at the baby shower here in Birmingham with Harold's mom. What a sweet Aunt & Grandma! She also gave me the most amazing foot massage after a long day on my feet. Does it get better than that??? My mom (or Cissy as Georgia will call her) has been making the shower rounds with me. I cannot imagine going through this journey without her. Her mom wasn't living when she was having her babies so I count each day she travels this road with me a true blessing!
Here's Summer, Shauna, Mrs. Downer, Kelly, Me, Aunt Carol & Courtney. Kelly and I go way back to high school and Mrs. Downer is the one who I credit with bringing Harold to me because she hired him to work for Auburn 5 years ago. Deann and I...She had on the most amazing wedges so I figured she could make the blog post ;) Plus, I kinda adore her as well.Here are the girls that hosted the shower in Birmingham. Heather, Kirsten, Lisa, Me, Haley & Dede. Heather & Dede are my friends from church...Lisa and I met through bible study...Kirsten and I met the first day of 5th grade...and Haley was and still is the girl in my life who loves me the way Jesus commands!Summer and I met through work several years ago. Besides being a great friend, she is the most loyal Lina Designs customer around :) She gave birth to adorable, Henry, 12 weeks ago.I tried to be cute...I really did. But after 30 minutes or so, my feet couldn't take it anymore and Summer felt the need to catch the switch on film. Gee thanks Summer ;)Haley decorated everything in zebra print and hot pink for the shower. It was adorable! I love this picture Amber took. I love that you can read the scripture and see my belly in the same shot. This scripture is a promise for my baby girl. I can't wait to share the Word with her. Oh and look-e-here...These are the faces of such goodness. Between me and Courtney, they have been making their baby shower rounds and doing it quite well I must say. What a joy to have them in my life!
Again...Thank you all for celebrating this amazing time in our lives with us. We love you!!!
