I had an amazing weekend. Aaron and I drove about 160 miles up north to have a baby shower that my family put together for me. Most of my friends and family live up in the northern Indiana and Chicago area. I was born and raised in Chicago, and I miss home so much. I have to say, it was so wonderful getting to see so much family, and my old childhood friends! Best of all, my 90 year old Grandmother came to the party! I was smiling from ear to ear when she came up to me. She rubbed my belly, all smiles, and said, “So precious! So precious!”
We had a pot-luck baby shower, and there were so many delicious foods to eat. We had a beautiful pink and white sweet table, with yummy cupcakes and candy. I made the cupcakes, and the floral centerpieces. I had so much fun putting the flowers together, and making 72 cupcakes the day before the shower! My kitchen smelled soooo goooood! ♥
Aaron and I went picture CRAZY of course! There were just SO MANY beautiful things to capture! Food, candy, flowers, gifts, balloons, tons of family, friends and hyper kids! We just could NOT put our camera down! We wanted to capture every single moment!
So here are the pictures! Don’t forget to click on the pictures to enlarge them, and to also read captions!
After we got home, we unloaded our gifts from the car. Put them all on the living room floor, and literally went straight to bed. We both were exhausted, but happy. The next morning I snapped pictures of each baby shower gift I received, and also the adorable gift bags, and beautiful cards I got! This baby blog is pretty much my baby book, and I love to document every moment and every picture. I don’t ever want to forget the great gifts I got from my loved ones! And I want to thank every one of you for all of the gifts. Aaron and I couldn’t be more happy, and I feel so blessed!
Several weeks ago I told Aaron I want a pinwheel for my flower bed. He laughed at me and said I was silly. He’s not a fan of pinwheels, lol. I came home from work just the other day, and while I was driving up, I saw a pinwheel on our mailbox. I smiled. He’s so sweet. Then, as I was pulling into the driveway, I saw more! I started laughing! Aaron was kneeling by a tree and started snapping pictures, haha!

My next baby check-up is Wednesday. I will be having an examination this time, and a Group B Streptococcus screening. Wish us luck!
