40 Weeks

I'm officially due TODAY! We've pretty much finished up everything we need to. We hung these Alphabet cards in her nursery this weekend and all we are waiting for is the bedding to arrive on Wednesday (it was on back order for months).

The mobile is hung.

The mural is done above the changing table.

The Bookshelf is built (I still have a few finishing touches left to put on it).

So Grateful

A few weeks ago my friends Ashley and Ranchel threw me a wonderful baby shower, I can not thank them enough for all the effort they put into it, they truly outdid themselves and it exceeded my expectations. . Here are just a few details:

Ashley made the wreath and hanging tissue balls, I thought they were so adorable.

Peonies from a local grower in Great Falls (this was the only thing I did, the girls did all the rest)

Diaper cakes made by Ashley and my sister, Elise, how adorable and useful:)

So creative, sugar and cream in sippy cups with baby spoons!

Most of my guest painted a onesie for Peanut, some were better than others, let's just leave it at that.

After is was all over I got to relax and enjoy some time with my friends, Ranchel and I go way back to middle school and Ashley and Kristen and I met in college through ADPi.

I also want to thank my sister who wrote down all the gifts and helped "hurry" it along since apparently that's the most boring part of a shower and no once wants to sit there for hours.

Good Belly shot, she's a big one!

I also want to Thank everyone who came to the shower and brought a gift for Peanut, Chris and I are so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends and we can't wait introduce Peanut to you all.

One of the most special gifts we recieved was this handmade quilt from Chris' family. Each Whinnie the Pooh character was hand stiched from 4 generations of women in his family. The Pooh Bear was done 10 years ago by his Great Grandmother, it is a tradition in their family that each great-grand-child recieve a blanket for their children, I know Peanut will love hers!
