Kevin's Shower

My friend, Betsy, made this delicious cookie for my baby shower this weekend. It really was a good party! Kevin got a lot of adorable clothes, some useful hand-me-downs, and quite a few handy little baby things like teethers, rattles, diapers, and toys.

I enjoyed talking to other pregnant moms and playing with the babies that were at the party. Daniel and I were able to get the last few things we needed the day after the party and now we feel fairly confident that we are as prepared as possible for Kevin's imminent arrival. I've been having so many contractions that it's hard to believe he's not due for another 3 weeks!

It was really a good feeling to see all the gifts and cards from ladies at church who couldn't make it to the shower but still wanted to send something special for our family. Looking at those and the women around me at the shower, I realized that I'm truly blessed with alot of good friends!

Hey Jessica! I have been following your blog for quite a while now and haven't seen a post lately. Has Kevin arrived? Praying that everything is ok.

Oh, I am from CHFWeb. You posted your blog address there.

Thanks for motivating me to update. I was getting behind. I'll either post or have Daniel post when our new little Elliott arrives.
