If nothing else, this gives me a chance to catch up on some blogging I meant to do DAYS ago.
Many months ago, two good friends, Molly & Kristina, approached me about throwing a baby shower...there are like a GAZILLION women pregnant in the ward and this is my THIRD baby. I felt a little glutenous, but they, being the WONDERFUL friends that they are insisted and came up with the idea of a Diaper Shower. BRILLIANT!! I didn't feel as bad about that. So, last week, they threw me the most ADORABLE shower. They are so crafty and clever it BLOWS MY MIND! They made the tiered food trays out of platters and candle sticks, an adorable diaper cake (now in the "nursery") and those super cute hanging balls (not sure what to call them) out of tissue paper (now hanging in Jemma and Carter's room over their little table and chairs).
There were so many good friends who took the time to attend, even though there had been like 3 other showers within like a week.
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
All the diapers are stashed away now...in every nook and cranny known to man! I seriously think I received enough diapers and wipes to keep me goin' for six months. I'm NOT kidding.
What a HUGE blessing.
Thanks again Molly and Kristina for making me feel special and taking the time to help me celebrate this new little one!
Here's a close up of that diaper cake...SO CUTE...it's on the dresser in the nursery now...which is a perfect transition into my next blog post...
I had NEVER intended to redo anything in the room the baby would be moving into (once it's out of me and Brandon's room)...but somehow, I ended up finishing all my projects and felt up to the task...so, the crib was the first thing to get a make-over.
There's a view of the nursery from the doorway...it's a little tricky getting a decent shot through there into such a little room. But anyway, there you go!
(There...now, if nothing else, still being pregnant allowed me to do a little catching up on my blogging...)

We actually celebrated Carter's birthday last Sunday (May 9th) because Brandon's parents and grandparents were in town, and let's be honest, a birthday really is more fun if you have a crowd! Carter got TONS of fun stuff; both Buzz & Woody, a REAL trike from Nina & Papa, an AdOrAbLe quilt from Nona & Papa (made by Nona), cars, clothes, & a little motorcycle. I made his cake with a little road on it and Jemma got to place the cars on it...it looks a little like a traffic jam. :) He LOVED it all!
