Baby Shower

This weekend my friends threw Grayson a baby shower!  It was a was so wonderful and we were blessed with so many gifts.  I loved having my friends and family come and celebrate!  My friends captured who I am to a tee haha!  Even though Gray is a boy, the shower was a yellow theme.  It turned out so beautiful, I did not want to leave!  

I stole this from Audra-
Some of the details..
Suzan made the little bees! 

The beautiful flower centerpieces

This was at each place setting and 
the rose was a pin that each guest could take

It would not be a party unless we had a candy table!

My mom and mother in law

Tracie and Courtney

So silly

Audra and "Avatar" (in her belly)

Amber

Rebecca and Baby Callie
Is she not the MOST gorgeous baby ever?

Lauren

Tyler!  He could not wait to help open the big gift and
it was the stroller we registered for!

The gift table

It was a wonderful day!  I can not believe I did not get a picture with Suzan! Arg.  I also can not believe he will be here in 8 weeks or less.  Ahhh!  I do not feel prepared and am starting to get nervous.  Not about the adoption but about being a mother.  I pray every day that I am the kind of mother that God wants me to be.  Those who have adopted- What were your feelings right before you received your child?  

Well I hope you had a restful holiday!  I am looking forward to a low key week and weekend.

I can't answer the adoption question you asked but I can say that stroller ROCKS! I had it before it became known that it is the best out there. I loved it!!! I actually just sold it to a soon to be mommy and I about cried. Silly I know but two babies came home in that car seat and were strolled with love. Who wouldnt be kinda sad to let it go.

Party looked really fun!!

Still looking for that story of how you got to where you are now.

Grayson will be a very lucky baby indeed.

I don't think there are enough words for how I felt right before meeting my son - but nervous, excited, worried, overwhelmed, thrilled - come to mind. I was of course so ready for him, but at the same time I had concerns about what kind of mom I'd be and just how the whole thing would go.

But I can say that once I held him I was engulfed with pure, sweet, amazing love for him and incredible gratefulness that we were being blessed with the opportunity to be his parents. To this day I sometimes look at him and burst into tears because I feel the same way I did that wonderful day.

I think you will be an amazing mom because you have such love for Grayson already. And it will only grow and get stronger!!
