allen shower

Last weekend was my baby shower in Allen! I was overwhelmed with the love and support of wonderful family and friends that came together to celebrate our baby girl. It was a packed house.  I had 6 amazing hostesses {shout out to Lynley, Meg, Kels, Lezah, Katie, and Nikki! You guys are the best!} that carefully thought out every tiny detail. It was the perfect way to celebrate baby E! There is no way I could do it justice with words, so go ahead and see for yourselves. Sidenote: we had to buy a new car to get all of our goodies home, but more on that later...


As they say, "it takes a village," and we are beyond blessed to already have our little village rallying around and loving on baby E before she is even here! Thank you Lord for lifelong family and friends.

30 weeks: head of cabbage

You're 30 weeks this week and 3/4 of the way to D-day {delivery day}! You are roughly 16 inches long and weigh about 3 pounds. Hmmm, I've gained about 22 pounds thus far, so not sure where that extra 19 pounds is hiding...oh wait! Yes I do, it's in my thighs. Whatevs. It's a small price to pay for our little head of cabbage. You are still kickin' and groovin' away and apparently have regular waking/sleeping cycles now. However, I still mostly feel you at night when I lay down...you gotta get that figured out. Laying down= night time. We will work on that later, I guess. Your room is almost finished! I'm having some seriously crazy acid reflux and am feeling pretty exhausted, but I am told that is completely normal, so I think that's a sign that things are going well! 10 more weeks!
