Adoption (Open)

Baby Shower

My sweet friend, Lorraine, threw me a baby shower today and I was so excited!


I walked in the door and couldn’t believe my eyes! There were so many women who came to celebrate with us. Women who are very special to me.

Including my mom and Mike’s mom and sister. And Mini, the guest of honor, was there too but she was a little camera shy.


After we mingled and ate yummy girlie food like finger sandwiches and mini (uh-huh) cheesecakes, we made our way into the living room. Lorraine gave me an opportunity to share about our adoption with everyone and I re-lived some of the journey all over again. God is so good.

When it was time to open presents, the cutest thing happened. All the little girls in the room came over and sat at my feet and handed me present after present, gift bag after gift bag. Ooh, that was fun!

You can tell I got just a little excited over every single outfit


Oh, that’s nothing – look how happy a pack of pink and purple onesies made me.


I was down right giddy over things like Pampers (although my girl Shelby didn’t seem to have the same level of excitement)


And gracious, guess what a little Gymboree box did for me?


And then there was all the scrapbooking stuff! Oh! All the scrapbooking stuff! I was just a tad excited about getting new scrapbooking stuff!


If you’re wondering if my cheeks hurt from smiling this much, the answer is yes. Yes, they do.

But totally worth it. I had a lot to smile about!
