Feeling So Loved {Baby Shower}

Yesterday was our first baby shower and I cannot put into words how loved our little family feels right now. You always know it'll be a day with lots of gifts and love, but until you actually are there amidst all these people who are celebrating with you, I don't think you can fully grasp it all. It was overwhelming (in a good way) at times seeing all of these women gathered around to welcome in our little guy to the world. We were completely spoiled!

My MIL and SIL put together this shower for Jared's side of the family and some family friends as well. They went with a storybook theme and completely outdid themselves with the entire thing. It's also safe to say baby's library is officially stocked! We got so many great books from everyone. You can never have too many books amiright? ;)


The food was delicious and book-themed as well which was so adorable. I helped myself to seconds with no shame... You only get to be the pregnant chick for so long!!

We got so many wonderful gifts and received so many encouraging cards and words throughout the day. The women of Jared's family are pretty darn great if you ask me. I'm so thankful to have married into this big, fun-loving family. The day was just full of laughter and excitement. We got some really sweet handmade gifts, more clothes than I thought I'd ever see and a good stash of diapers and wipes started.
One of Jared's aunt put together this fun clothesline that I kept pulling out of a laundry basket- it was never ending!!


My mom was invited to come to this shower so it was fun having her there; and helpful when we had to cram our cars full in order to get all the goodies back to my house ;) My mom also made this awesome rag quilt for our little guy which I'm pretty obsessed with- it's SO perfect for his room with the pops of green and orange we are trying to work in!




I am excited to finally start organizing the nursery now. My goal is to find a place for all the gifts we got this weekend before we have baby shower round 2 in a couple of weeks with my family! How does one little person need SO much stuff? ;)

  11. What a great shower! I love the decorations and theme! I went to a storybook themed shower once, and they asked everyone to write in the front of a book instead of bringing a card...I loved that idea!

    Have a wonderful Monday!
