Mommy Monday: 34 Weeks and My Baby Shower!!

34 weeks!

Week 34 is in the books! Woohoo! Who would have thought that we'd make it this far?? I am SO happy that my little boy has been able to stay in for so long. Hopefully he'll stay in a few weeks longer! Let's keep going!!

This weekend was my baby shower!! It was SO amazing and fun and beautiful! I didn't think I was going to be able to have a baby shower since I was put on bed rest at 20 weeks. But I'm so stable now and I'm being treated like a normal pregnant lady at this point. While I still have to take it easy and keep off my feet as much as possible, I am able to do a lot more things, so my mom threw together a baby shower!! She did SUCH an incredible job with the decorations, food, drinks... everything about it was JUST like I had pictured and even more. It was gorgeous and so special.

My amazing mom who put together this special day!!

I am just SO blessed by the people who showed up and made the time to come celebrate our little boy! There were close to 30 people at the shower! Seeing so many friends and family members from all different walks of life - some of whom I haven't seen in so long - was amazing! We received so many incredible gifts for our little guy and we were blown away by people's generosity and thoughtfulness. Seriously, THANK you to everyone who made time to be there!! We love you all! 

We are so thankful to everyone who showered us and our little boy with love at the baby shower!

My girlfriends and our moms! I've known them all since grade school! So amazing to have them there!!!
