Baby Shower Recap

Rachel, her mom and Mrs. Yates hosted such a gorgeous and perfect baby shower for the Otto Bean and I on Saturday in Raleigh.  I had to share a few pictures of their hard work and great ideas.  Thank you so much to all the friends and family that showered us with so many gifts and their presence.  I feel so blessed, so thankful, so loved.  It did make the upcoming arrival much more real.  Down to 8 weeks or so...

Caroline and Julia won the onesie cookie decorating contest.
My mom, sisters, mother-in-law and brother-in-laws' ladies
These two don't look like grandmothers to me!

My mom and sisters filled up the elephant hamper / toy bin that I had my eye on for a while with lots of goodies.  I love it!
Jean surprised me with our stroller and filled it up with more baby loot.  She included the outfit Josh came home from the hospital in and I can't wait for our baby to wear it home 33 1/2 years later.  It has a little blue embroidered giraffe on it - what are the chances?!
Rach and her mom filled a basket with all of baby Ryan's favorite items.  Thank you so much to Rachel for all the love and time she put into truly making this such a special and fun day!  I can't wait to raise our babies together.



  1. Gorgeous shower! Do you mind sharing where you got the elephant print (for the thumbprints)? I love that idea and might have to borrow it!
