Baby shower #1

i had my first of two baby showers on saturday, put on ever so graciously by my mom, my sister, sister in laws, and my mother in law. they all did a fabulous job at making the day a success. so i first want to thank them all again so so so very much. below will be a smattering of pictures from the shower taken by my sister in law and then some iphone pics stolen from my mama. 

my grandma and aunt-in-law freshened up this 65 year old bassinet for me that she used for her kiddos. its so cute! can't wait to put my little handsome in it. 

the two pictures below need some explaining. the first is me reading a note that came with a present from my parents. it essentially says that this little outfit {pictured in the second photo with my mom} was bought for my mom and dad when they were first pregnant with my oldest sister, linsey. it is from a couple that my dad taught and baptized while on his LDS mission in california that he became really close with. it's really special to him and they've saved it for the first boy they would have. well, because my parents had 4 girls, they saved it for the first grandson. and 10 girls later...#11 is a boy. so they wrapped it up and gave it to me. it's really special to my parents and as i read the note, it was all i could do to keep my pregnant emotional self from bawling in front of everyone....ugh.

below is a blanket my cute sister-in-law crocheted for me.

little blue converse shoes and a blanket {over my knee} that my aunt-in-law crocheted.

and this adorable quilt below was made by my cousin, mekelle. i'm telling you, people, my in-laws and my family are super talented people. besides the pics i've shown you of blankets made from family, i think i have about 5 or 6 others not pictured that my mom, mother-in-law, and another cousin made me. seriously.....why are all of you so cool?

it was a great afternoon full of fabulous company, great advice, generous gifts and {the best part...} delicious food. :) thank you for all who came to support my husband and i and for those who made it happen. we are so excited to bring this little boy into the world and couldn't do it without all the love and support we get from friends and family.

next weekend is my baby shower that my cute besties are putting on for me. i'm so excited and can't wait to spend time with some close friends. thanks again to you all!! we love you!
