Showers...

Baby and SNOW!!
My sweet friends threw Kate a shower on January 17. We had a luncheon at The Silver Caboose (my fav restaurant in Collierville), and had an absolutely wonderful time! The decorations were precious, the menu was yummy, and everything we received was fabulous!!

The hostesses: April, Lindsey, Heather, Me, Laurette, Mims, & Megan The Aunts and Grandmothers

When I got home from the shower, my dad and Luke had been painting all morning! Luke did a wonderful job picking out her paint colors (she will definitely never be gloomy), and matching them to her bedding! Three walls are green, and one is blue. Her bathroom will be the same color blue. He also picked out fabric for and recovered a rocking chair that was my mom's when she was a little girl. It is precious! You can also see the finished dresser and dressing table. There is a mirror that will go above the dressing table.
Last Friday, the Behel/Tucker/Cosby family came in town to shower Kate with gifts. I told my mom I needed a larger vocabulary because everything I opened I said, "It is so cute/precious/adorable!" I need some new words, but everything was cute/precious/adorable! Mama, Hayden, Patsy, Me, Vicky, Sherrie, and Ashley A bonnet for the summer (made by Ashley's grandmother!)!
Sherrie got a monogramming machine...everyone will know our precious' name! Bandit couldn't figure out why nothing was monogrammed with his name on it. Get used to it, Buddy! The next morning, Mom, Nana, and I loaded up and headed to Tupelo for a shower at Luke's aunt's house. As always, the food was fabulous! We had a recipe swap after the shower :) The hostesses: Aunt Lisa, Callie (with Baby Boy # 2!), Jennifer, Aunt Hilda, and Me! KK, Me, and Grammy
Me, Nana (who refuses to be called a great-grandmother), and KK Aunt Katie, me, and Grammy
Handmade gown from Aunt Hilda...it has tiny bluebirds on it! Nursery monitor from Aunt Katie (Luke researched it, and it is The Best :)
Christmas goodies!! A stocking that I am sure will be overflowing at KK's next year! (Sorry, Luke, I don't think you are going to be the favorite this year!) And, of course, we couldn't leave without leaving our mark! Oops, sorry Uncle Mike! I felt so bad...I grew up with a yard that people were always getting stuck in, and it is a pain to mow the grass with huge ruts!
As you can tell, we are getting so ready for this little girl to arrive! Seven weeks and counting!

Babies are...

so much fun! Kate moves around all the time, and I love it! I can feel elbows and knees, although I can't distinguish what is what. I think she is practically taking up my abdomen from one side to the other.
My sweet YoungLife girls threw us a surprise shower on December 30. We received so many cute PINK things! It was fun to come home and add them to the nursery. It is also coming along nicely.
The girls
Madison...who is now a KD at State!
And Katie...mother to Thea, Kate's new friend!
Luke "redid" two pieces that were my great-grandmothers. Here are before pics, and he finished them on Sunday while I napped. I will make sure to get some after pics soon...they look AWESOME! Isn't he the best Daddy already?
(Note:Please ignore me and the sour look on my face...I didn't know my pic was being taken, but I wanted you to see the changing table "before!")
And last but
not least, my
sister's new baby.
Isn't he precious? A mess, but precious! His name is Cooper! Bandit is not sure about his feelings for little Cooper yet, but Coop loves Bandit!
"A baby girl...one of the most beautiful miracles in life,one of the greatest joys we can ever know,and one of the reasons whythere is a little extra sunshine, laughter and happinessin your world today."
