Baby Shower

We had my shower at my sister Shelleys house. THANK YOU SHELLEY!!!

Wow that was a fun time for me. I got to see a lot of people I haven't seen in some time. Matt's mom even surprised me and came down from Snowflake. I got such wonderful things. I am so appreciative of everyones generosity.
I got some of the cutest little outfits. I hope I get to use them all. To many people have been telling me they have all this stuff but never get to put them in them before they grow out of them.

I got to use the Chocolate Fountain I got for my wedding for the first time. That was a fun touch. I know my nephews were thrilled to have it. It was probably a little messy but Chocolate is Chocolate.
This is the stroller and Car Seat I got from a coworker out of Texas. I finally put the car seat in my car and I've got my hospital bag ready. Anytime now Kathryn...

I only have a few pictures as my camera's batteries failed by my sister has more so if she has come cool ones I'll get some more posted.

Thank you cards will be coming shortly. I really want to have the baby and get a baby annoucement with picture /thank you card out to everyone.

Matt's mom helped up get our crib. We found this one on Craigslist. It has three drawers down the side and two long drawers underneath. I like storage space.

I'm so excited to have this baby. Also other news Matt and I have decided that I don't have to go back to work when the baby comes. My last day at work is the 8th unless she comes sooner. Which I'm hoping because I just found out that if she does, Short Term Disablity still applies and I'll get paid for part of the first month that I'm gone. We're not counting on it but that would be a great added bonus for us. So any suggestions on how to make this baby come out quicker that would be appreciated.
Thanks again to all those that have supported me and made me feel like I can be a great mom.

How fun- I'm sorry I wasn't able to make it!! Mine and Brandon's schedules just weren't working to our advantage that day. Isn't it so much fun taking all that stuff home and putting it in the baby's room? I remember how much fun that was after my baby shower!

Cute pics Heather. Here are some ideas in helping baby come...walk, jump, run, intamacy w/ hubby :)(sorry if that embarasses you, but its true), their are also some herbs but I dont remember what they are called, Helen would know because she took them and it worked for her....I am so excited for you!

I wish I could have been there! Your present got packed into our 10 X 10 storage facility that is packed literally to the ceiling. Sorry about that...I guess you have to wait till I move back to get it! Don't worry it was books, so she won't have outgrown it.

I have loved reading your comments on my blog, it is fun to be blog friends! And OF COURSE I would love to share any of my experience or ideas with you - just call or write anytime! I thought I was so prepared for a baby since it was my major and my career, but holy cow Heather it is incredibly hard and there's just really no way to be "prepared" completely. I wish when I was single that I had spent all my free time running around helping new moms! But I've vowed to make up for it by being EXTRA-special helpful to any new moms I can from now on. So let me know how I can support you!

And p.s. I guess it just depends on the baby 'cause our little one still fits into some of her 3 month old outfits and she just turned 6 months!!

Have fun and see you on the blog!

Hello Heather, it is good to hear from you!! I'm so jealous that you are so close and i still have 4 weeks!! Yes I'm dying and so uncomfortable!! but I know in the end she will be worth it!! Looks like you had a fun shower and got lots of great things. I'll keep checking to see when you have that baby!! Good Luck!! =)

Hi Heather! Kayli came a week early... I walked around and around AZ Mills and took castorol oil with orange juice. It was sooo gross, but I went into labor that night and had her the next morning at 6. It is worth a try! :-) I will get on making you a cute headband. I will take a picture of it and email it to you to make sure it is what you want. Email me at: and let me know your email!
