To be loved, to be loved, to be really really loved


Showers are a pretty amazing thing, don't you agree. I mean you have these friends, who the minute you get pregnant, start planning a baby shower for you and your little family. They plot, plan, and e-mail for months about what food will be there, what gifts to buy, how to decorate, and it is ALL in your honor and for the new life that is about to enter this world. Hollings will surely be one loved little girl, just as BellaRose is by all our family and friends.
As I told you our Couple's Baby shower to honor Hollings was this past weekend at Matt and Margaret's house. It was also given by Annie and Dan, Becky and Jeremiah, Jennifer and Ben, Heidi and Richard, Nick and Niki, and Rachel and Seth, goodness, talk about the love! We truly felt so blessed! We also got some wonderfully beautiful things for Hollings, and even BellaRose got some gifts!
BellaRose was our main photographer of the night. I share some of these pictures simply because she took them.



The following three were taking by our sweet girl. She actually did a pretty good job!
Look how cute this one bag we registered for was decorated (from my mom and sisters)! White onsies and socks, my favorite! I just adored seeing BellaRose in a plain white onsie. I am not sure why, but I loved it, and now Hollings will have the same experience, rather I will have the same experience!
BR took this of the other bag that Jennifer (Worth's sister) got us. I did not realize how large these bags are, but I LOVE them. Jennifer had it filled with diapers, wipes, and other goodies! It was really amazing!

This is just a funny picture of BellaRose, she wanted the camera back so badly! The final picture is of the flowers that are just GORGEOUS! I wish I took better pictures, and took pictures of the food that surrounded the flowers, but alas I did not. This is a the day after picture of the flowers on my messy table, but you can still get the idea of just how outstanding these flowers really are and the vase that Annie made. No I do not get to keep the vase, but do get to enjoy it for the life of the flowers! I could keep going on and on, and I know I will once the room is all together and I go show off everything! Thank you all so much, words will never do justice to how grateful we feel.

What a wonderful shower and I am dying that BR is becoming a little photographer!!! :-) Oh the diapers! I laughed when WDP was born I thought we'd never go through all the diapers because they use 3 or 4 a day right??? Hahah- now I know it's 10-15/day :-) So glad your shower was perfect! PS- what a vase- love it!!!!

I can't believe we missed this! I hate being sick. You know we love you guys and can't wait to meet that sweet Hollings. I am so impressed with BellaRose's pictures. She just wants to be like her mama. So sweet.

Everything looks so fun!

This is reminding me of all things we need to get before Baby comes... teeny diapers, wipes, all the little baby stuff. IT's crazy to be starting over again.
