it’s raining babies!



Can you tell?? The baby posts are JUST beginning. I promise not every single post on this blog from now on will be on the topic of baby, but even that may be only a handful a posts! My brain is in full-fledged BABY.


I got the chance to go back home to the hills of Eastern Kentucky this weekend for a sweet Friend’s Baby shower.

Mrs. Katie is due April 4th with Edmond Kayne, but with last week’s appointment, little Edmond was measuring 36 weeks while momma’s only 33… I’m so glad I got to see her before he made his grand debut which may be a little sooner than she was expecting!

The shower was gorgeous in teal and brown, the colors of Edmond’s nursery. The hosts truly outdid themselves with decorating and making loads of delicious, BEAUTIFUL food for us to scarf down. I had a blast catching up with friends from our old church and town where we spent our first year of marriage before moving to Lexington.



It has to be said that baby Edmond only has one uncle… can you spy with your little eye which article of clothing his uncle may have gifted him with???


The cupcakes… the cookies… we were in HEAVEN!


Baby cupcakes and “rattles”… genius!


THANK GOODNESS for loads of food… who would have thought there would be 9 preggos in the building for the shower?! In this picture we’re all lined up according to due dates. I’ll help you find me: I’m the tall, awkward one looking decidedly un-pregnant. I was so happy to be next to Jody {in purple} to help me feel just a little less out of a place =)


And a blurry picture of Katie and I: 33 weeks verses 13 weeks!

I promised her a retake in August when she’ll be completely deflated and I’ll be ready to burst, 9 months pregnant in humid 100 degree Kentucky weather – can’t wait!



My first “belly bump” pic on the blog♥


I promise it’ll get better.
