baby shower, round two

Alternatively titled: The one with a whole lot of ridiculously cute baby clothes.
Or: The one with a lot of pictures because I just got a new camera lens and then put my sister-in-law in charge of taking pics.

Don't say I didn't warn you.

This past weekend, Andrew and I headed back to NC for another baby shower in Charlotte - this time with close friends and family. My Aunt Rita, who is also our boy's godmother, hosted the shower at her house.

And y'all? It was perfect.

Not surprisingly, the food was delicious and the decorations were beautiful.


My favorite? The pictures of my mom and grandmother from their baby showers. The cupcakes were also amazing. And the cake bites. And the broccoli salad.

It was all very, very good.

The boys got food, too. Aunt Rita does not disappoint. She had a spread set up for them in the game room.

See how happy that made them?

But it wasn't just about the food! Of course there were games...

By the way, Laura loses for thinking I'm twice as big as I actually am.

And there was a good amount of silliness...


And then there were lots and lots of presents. Cute, adorable, precious presents.


The gifts weren't just for me either. My mom inherited a blanket that my grandmother's Sunday school class made when her first grandchild was coming along (that would be me!).

Andrew got a little something, too...


I can't tell you how much I love these ladies - the sweet women in my family, in Andrew's family, some of my best friends - all of them make my heart so happy.




LOVE this pic, by the way.

It was a good day. It was a very, very good day that left us feeling so blessed.

And now I leave you with this...

Why, who is that woman behind the camera? That would be Aunt Laura, of course! Thanks for being my personal photog for the day!

Happy times, folks. Happy times.
