Baby Shower

I haven't been the greatest with blogging and I apologize. I always have ideas in my head of what I want to write about but never have the time to do it. Today was unexpected time off since I came home sick. Bleh!

This past weekend was wonderful and I couldn't have asked for anything more. When you are surrounded by family who is truly over the moon for you to finally be here, pregnant, after all our struggle is quite tearful. SHOCKED could not describe what I felt after everything we received during our baby shower. It made me realize that being so open about our struggle has not gone in vain. People were more than willing to celebrate Baby JR's arrival, since J and I cannot agree on a name everyone is referring to him as Baby Jr.

Here are a few pictures of the day I honestly never thought I would be able to experience.

My Aunt C made this for us

Before we found out the gender of our son I told my cousin I wanted a Dr Seuss theme if it was a boy. If it was a girl I didn't care just as long as it wasn't all pink. Little did I know it is extremely difficult to find Dr Seuss decorations at stores. My cousin was planning my shower that she became overwhelmed since she couldn't find anything. After my family announced they were flying in from California for Mother's Day weekend they wanted her to change the baby shower to that weekend. I could see she was at a lost so I took the wheel on the decorations since I wanted this particular theme. My mom, aunt, SIL, cousin, and I came together and made the decoration. The cake was decorated by my SIL as a surprise, my cousin made/ decorated the cupcakes, my SIL also made the diaper cake. Although I helped with the decorations I was not part of setting anything up so seeing it all put together made me extremely emotional.

I was extremely surprised to see someone got us a crib!! Who does that??!

Yes there was even Volleyball at my shower

My cousin's youngest son

Can u see how disgusted their faces look? How do babies eat this stuff?

My Fam Bam that I love so much!

Seeing everyone come together to celebrate our little man was wonderful. J was shocked to see that we got almost everything in our baby registry. (He said I was wasting my time creating one. SMH) Now all we have to do is get his nursery put together and organize all his belongings. I can't believe there's only 12 weeks left until I meet this little one.
