Baby Shower/Small Weekend Recap

This weekend went by way too fast. I was so busy with stuff, but that's ok. Chris and I are both going into mini-freak out mode knowing that there won't be many breaks until eternity....so, yeah.

Saturday we went to a breastfeeding/newborn care class. It was 4 hours, but it was so informative and I'm  really happy that Chris agreed (he didn't have much choice) to go with me. If I'm struggling with breastfeeding our little girl, I want him to understand and be able to help and comfort me. Newborn care was a great class for him to be at, as well. He doesn't have a ton of experience with kids and everything to expect from raising a little girl. We headed to Chipotle after class (little dolls swaddled brought burritos to both of our minds) and then home for a couple hour break. I met up with Millie, S-I-L and my niece to hit up MOA for some maternity shopping. I had a lot of success and found some super cute clothes there. We also grabbed dinner at Cadilac Ranch. It was a fun night! When I got home, my feet were killing me so I decided a bath was due. It felt amazing!

Sunday was Baby Thydean's big day! For some reason I was a tiny bit nervous for the shower, mainly because I don't handle being the center of attention very well. It really freaks me out. My S-I-L did such an amazing job decorating and finding games that were fun to play. I'm not generally a big fan of baby shower games, but I did enjoy the games we played! Here are some pics from the shower:

Loved these sunflowers, so pretty and fall colored (my fav color pallet)
Yummy egg bake

My mom and I before the shower
One of the games we played we had to hang up clothes on a line while holding our baby and talking on the phone. I'm not sure I will be holding our baby under my armpit, but times get tough with a newborn around :)

                              Millie showing us how much of a multi-tasker she can be, I think we'll hire her for a babysitter :)
This will be me in a couple months
After Laurie won, we decided to bring her husband in to see if he could beat her time
It's hard to tell if Andrew put in a complete effort or if it was just easier to let his competitive, pregnant wife take the win!
Watching the games

 Presents! My oh my is our little baby girl spoiled! I still have not put things away, they have been moved to the nursery but that's about it.

Thank goodness I had my little Batman to help with all of the gifts - sooo cute!

Baby Girl's future partner in crime - the cutest, sweetest little girl!

Opening some presents

Alas, the time came to say our good-byes. My niece and her friend Cambrie

Great group of girlfriends - Tara, me, Megan and Jen (wish we would've taken this earlier to get our other friend Jen in the pic)

Me and Megan - she's due in Feb, can't wait to find out if it's boy or girl on Thursday!!

Millie, Me, S-I-L, and niece C

Me and S-I-L (the girl knows how to throw a great party!)

Laurie and I (she's been adopted into the family since her family isn't here) - she's due in January with another little boy

I can't thank all of my friends and family enough for showering Baby Thydean so much! It was a great day/weekend and makes us more excited to meet our little girl very soon!

  4. Your outfit is so adorable!!! Glad your shower was fun...almost time :)

  5. looks like a great time. You look super cute in your outfit too.

    I love the updated photos of you, the hubby and the pups. so cute!

  6. aw you look amazing! I don't like being the center of attention either, but it's all from a good place right? :)

  7. Look at how adorable you are! I love your outfit! Breast feeding has been interesting.... And quite the learning experience. The classes are a big help though!

  8. Very cute shower! You look great! When I was pregnant, We took breastfeeding class too and even though I knew a lot of the information, it was great for my husband to understand and support me when I was in the thick of it. I really think that having Micah in my corner and know somewhat of what I was going through,helped me succeed to nursing for 19 months and counting!
