Shower Time!

The past two weeks have been busy with baby showers. Patrick and I feel so blessed to have so many people in our lives that we love dearly and that care for us and our little girl enough to throw/come to these showers! It has been so good to see and connect with friends and family that for some I haven't seen in a while. 

Our first shower was one that my grade level threw me at school. I am so lucky to work at a school with such wonderful people and an amazing team to teach with. Here are a few pictures...

The next shower we had was in Columbia thrown by my wonderful mother-in-law. It was mostly family with a few close family friends. Delicious treats, sweet friends/family, and lovely gifts for our little girl.

My sweet Mema

 This was the present that Cayden was most excited to open because of its size. He was a little disappointed by the cardboard box inside the bag...I on the other hand was very excited!

Letting Caroline hang out with her girl McGuire likes to kick her when she's on my stomach-little love kicks that is :) 

Since it was Mother's Day the next day, we decided to take some family pics...4 generations

Sweet Mother's Day gift from Patrick...great read! 

 Patrick's dad is just a little excited about our little girl's arrival and so he had a little fun with the power washer in the driveway. 

The next weekend, my college roommates threw me a shower in Atlanta. Take a look at these pictures-love all the little details that they put in to it. The best friends a girl can ask for...I hope our little girl is just as lucky as I have been to have friends like them in her life.

Cayden was my little helper again...this time he got a little distracted by the books as you can see in some of the pictures.

And to top off a wonderful school year, my students and room moms threw me a surprise shower! 

This weekend we head to Destin for a last trip before little Teagan's arrival. Only 7 1/2 weeks to go...and that's if she comes on time! Could be sooner or later...hoping for not too much of either of those options. 


  1. I loved reading and catching up on your amazing journey. Please, let's get a date on the calendar, so I can come to ATL and spend a little time with you and little one this summer. Love and miss you. brenda
