On Friday, some of the very lovely ladies from church threw me a baby shower.  Both baby girl and I felt so loved and special, and I’m so grateful for their thoughtfulness.  It was so fun to have a night of chatting and tasty treats.

With all the fun, we didn’t even have time to open gifts (because, though I’d asked them to indicate that gifts weren’t needed, I think every single person brought one…), so Dan and I had fun opening darling baby girl things after I got home.  It was so fun to imagine our little lady in them, even though I still can’t believe it’s coming so soon.  People keep asking me if I’m so ready to be done being pregnant, and my answer is, NO!  I actually enjoy being pregnant, and I feel like this pregnancy has gone by so quickly, so I want to enjoy it a little while longer and take some more time to prepare and enjoy these last few weeks spending lots of time with Nat.

In any case, I, of course, forgot to take one single picture while at the shower.  But we did manage to snap a few of my outfit before I left.  I loved how the simple dress showcased the fun necklace and shoes, and how they dressed the dress down.  And I even managed to DO my hair for once.  Not pictured, of course.
