Showered with Love

We have been so very blessed with baby showers for this sweet girl (who will hopefully arrive tomorrow!).  We have some very special people in our lives who sure know how to love us well.  

Our first baby shower was for our church family at the Butler's house.  :)  The Butlers are like our Arkansas family.  This is where our cow, Mack, stays and we have become very close to all of the Butler family.  

It was such a wonderful day with delicious food, fantastic people and so many things to get us ready for baby Caitlyn.  People have been so very generous and we are so thankful.

One woman at our church made this sweet blanket with the colors we're using for baby girl's nursery (yellow and gray).  I love having handmade things.

Thank you to Ronda, Hilary, Mandy and Nikki for all of their hard work for this shower.  It means so much to us!

Our second shower was put together by my sweet sis-in-law and we got to celebrate with family and friends.  My parents, Julie and Zoey, Claudia and Nick's grandparents traveled from out of town to come.  We appreciate it so much!  It was also great to see so many other ladies we don't get to see as much as I'd like.  Friends and other family.  :)  We played a fun game of guessing who's baby picture belonged to who and Robyn made some delicious food for us to enjoy!  

I loved seeing all the pink!!

Before the party, we made a family stop in to Freddy's to see Nick's brother, Tyler.  Jack and Caleb make sure to keep a close eye on where Tyler is at all times while we are there.  It's very cute.

Caleb was so excited for Zoey to come that he played in her pack n play all morning.  

He loves Zoey so much.  He will be a great big brother!!

Again, words can never express how grateful we are to everyone who came and sent gifts for our girl.  We are blown away!!  

Last week, my boss and another co-worker, Amy, threw a diaper shower for us.  It is amazing how many diapers and wipe we received!!  We are all set for a LONG time!  This is an incredible blessing and majorly helpful.  We also got some cute outfits and bows.  Caleb got to come to this party and he had a blast.  He was so polite and helpful.  What a sweet boy.  One of my thoughtful co-workers even got a gift for big brother.  It had candy, bubbles, trucks and a coloring book with crayons.  We are so very fortunate to work for a company with all these wonderful people!  

My boss made this cute diaper wreath.  I hope to use it in Caitlyn's room!

It is not lost on Nick and I how incredibly blessed and fortunate we are to have all these wonderful people in our lives.  We feel so loved and we look forward to telling our sweet girl how many people love and care for her already!

Thank you so much to all of our friends and family!
