Baby Z's Shower!!

On Sunday my SIL Stephanie threw me a baby shower for Baby Z. She spent so much time going over the details and everything turned out perfect. The menu was so yummy....veggies, fruit, BLT bread bowls, spinach dip, chip and salsa, cheese, nuts, Jelly Bellies and cute little footie candies. It was all so yummy and the best part was she sent me home with tons of leftovers! :)

Stephanie's friend Kelly who made her wedding cake made this cake for the shower. I had requested the same flavor that part of Ryan and Steph's wedding cake was...raspberry and lemon. THE BEST!!!

I love that she used both pink and blue since we don't know if baby is a boy or a girl.

I really wanted to bring Ella to the shower, but I wasn't sure how she would be since it was right after church and she is usually dying for her nap by then. I figured she would spend a bunch of time with Ga-Ga, but no way! She only wanted Mama, but at the same time she was really good for not getting a nap.


Sherry (Stephanie's Mom), Ellen, Norean and Ga-Ga!

Paige and Michelle

Ella, Jen and Logan. It was so cute to see Logan and Ella since I'm no longer watching Logan they won't be seeing each other as often. They gave each other the biggest hug. Precious girls!

Erin, Becky, Rachael and Lilyann

Stephie, Kim and Tricia

By the time we left Ella Bean was definitely ready to go, but she never once had a meltdown...until it was time to get strapped into her car seat. Thankfully she didn't scream the whole way home.

She crashed in the car! Don't you love the scraped and bruised legs....she is totally a sister with two older brothers. Anyways when I got her out of the van she was saying "nigh nigh" so I just took her upstairs, changed her into her pajamas and put her to bed. She slept from 5:45 Sunday night all the way until 6:45 the next morning. She was party pooped!

Stephie had these pink and blue balloons hanging outside the house and she let me take them home for the kids. I thought it would be fun to take pictures of the boys with the color they think the baby is.

And here's Baby Z in all his or her glory! I got these cute new pajamas from Ellen at the shower and I LOVE them. I also got diapers, wipes, bath stuff, nursing pad, baby blankets, a couple gender neutral outfits and gift cards. My mom and I went shopping on Monday night and spent the gift cards getting more diapers, nursing pads, nursing bras, stain remover and a play mat for the baby. Now I just need to pack my bag! Baby Z you can come any day now! :)
