Circus Baby Shower

Last weekend was our family/couple baby shower that our parents threw for us. My mom came up with the theme and made all of the decorations, favors, cake topper, etc. We had cotton candy, cupcakes, peanuts, white chocolate popcorn,  and animal crackers all decked out in the cutest containers you will probably ever see. She even chalked the background to the sweets table and the welcome sign at the front door. Yeah, she is kind of good at this stuff. The yummy food, (which was of course your typical circus food... hot dogs, chili, and chips) was provided by my dad and mother-in-law. We had such a wonderful time with our family and friends. Thank you to our amazing parents who put it on for us and to everyone who came over to love on and support us!

Oh! I almost forgot! The last gift that was handed to me to open didn't have a card so I didn't know who it was from, then Robby looked at me and said, "that's from me!" My absolutely precious husband surprised me with the sweetest gift, a pink pearl ring! Ummmm, someone scored lots and lots of points with that one! He's the sweetest! (You can see my beautiful new ring in the picture below where I am holding the cupcake)

26 weeks

I am 26 weeks and about 5 days now. This picture was taken on the actual day of 26 weeks but I am just now getting around to posting it, and I swear my belly has doubled in size in 5days. We had a doc appointment yesterday morning and this little girl had a bit of a growth spurt (and so did this mama...eeeeekkk).

This has been a super busy week already. I have sooooo much in line to edit, I am throwing (along with three other lovely ladies from church) a baby shower for my precious friend Taylor this Sunday, and my husband's parents are coming in this Monday to stay with us through Thanksgiving. So lots of photo editing, decoration making, and house cleaning is going on this week.

The crib should be delivered sometime tomorrow, and I could not be more excited to see it put together and set up in her room. We are also hoping that the nursery will be getting some new paint on the walls this weekend. I am ready to get her little room all put together. I know this probably sounds really weird, but I go into Violet's room and browse through her 13 (yes I have counted) little outfits she has so far and imagine getting to dress her in all of it in 3 short months. I am ready to have some new nursery items to go look at and daydream about! 

We are now in the double digits of the countdown...whoa. 93 days to go!
