We are so far away from what has always (up till now) been home and yet... We are home. Our Colorado home - filled with an abundance of our Colorado friends.
My friend Mrs. Smith hosted the most lovely baby shower for Bryce on Saturday, and since he is a wee bit small to eat Chocolate Eclairs, Cheesecake, and Custard Tart; and since his coordination isn't up to par with playing games or opening gifts yet... I generously applied myself to all those things in his stead so I could tell him all about the experience when he is old enough to appreciate it :-)
I am so good to him! ;-D
Here are a few of those I love: Lauri, Chloe, and Sadie. These ladies (delivered to us by Lauri's Great Guy) couldn't stay for the party but came early to exchange hugs and kisses, and to help Mrs. Smith put the finishing touches on things. THANK YOU dearest ones!!
This is Mrs. Smith.
See the beautiful Cheesecake down in the left corner? Mrs. Smiths mother made for me (er, Bryce) and it was a delectable in taste as well as appearance! (THANK YOU Mom of M. Smith!!!)
(Shhhh... don't tell AJ about the dark chocolate!)
Gramsie (and Carolina) sucking on... BOTTLES?
For a game - you know, who can slurp all the water out of one the fastest. Well I'll tell ya, it wasn't me! I really don't know how a baby gets liquid out of one of those things!
And honestly, this is when I realized why men avoid "Showers". It's all becoming clear;-)
Do take note of my jewelry. Zachary Christian made this necklace and bracelet for me particularly for this occasion. It was just beautiful! I loved wearing it and thinking of his kindness towards his ol' momma:-)
I felt so loved upon. So cherished by my Lord through all these precious women. I know some others that would have liked to be there and I missed them sorely. My mom and sisters especially.
I also consider so many of you blogging ladies my friends and would have loved for you to join in celebrating with us!
When I thought of being a mom, I never dreamed of THIS! ~Five heart melting smiles ~never getting tired of midnight feedings ~having all the answers ~not minding dirty faces ~enjoying watching the boys eat! ~falling in love with pigtails ~appreciating overalls ~appreciating a washing machine! ~wanting to do everything better ~falling in love a million times
