Love for Avery

Yesterday was our first baby shower and it was AWESOME! I seriously could not have asked for a sweeter gift from these sweet ladies who threw me and Avery a shower. We were so blessed yesterday by everyone who came and we are so thankful to everyone who showered us with love! It was so fun to catch up with so many people i hadn't seen in a while, and eat some yummy shower food of course. My sister, Ashley, planned it and had the help of all these sweet ladies!

Kathy Liner, D'Arcy, Dana, Ash, Roch, and Debbie Buchanan all helped out!

Ash did an incredible job, especially since she planned it from another city! There was this beautiful diaper cake that she made for us with tons of diapers, spoons, receiving blankets, passies, and bup clothes.

She printed out pictures of me that Jonas took on our beach trip...

She had the sweet idea of having everyone who came write a sweet note to Avery and put them together in a book for us to have to read to her one day!

The food was incredible and so so good. She brought my favorite peti-fores from Savages in Birmingham! How cute are these? I wish i had another one right now, but i did have like 3 yesterday :)

Rochelle made a baby carriage our of a melon! She is so stinkin crafty

beautiful flowers put together by Ash!

Sorry, the rest of this is picture overload! My dad came and took pictures for me so of course we have lots! Thanks again to my amazing sister who raced around cool springs so many countless times on Friday and Saturda to make Sunday beautiful! It was so fun!!

And yes i am this big!

Aubs came too!!

Ashley made this hate for Avery! She makes these in no time in case anyone needs one! :)

This is the quilt that goes with Avery's bedding. Uncle Jan and Aunt Lisa gave this to us!

Tia Rochelle made this awesome scripture picture for Avery's room.  It matches perfectly and has the fruits of the spirit written in front of her name.

So im pretty sure this is where I was trying to recite my favorite scripture that Debbie had scripted on a blanekt for Avery and i couldn't even remember it! awesome...

Last but not least, mom and dad got us a Bob stroller!!! UT orange of course...its amazing! Probably the coolest jogger stroller out there for those moms-to-be who may be reading :) Its the lightest thing you will ever push in your life and the car seat snaps on!
