Easton's Baby Shower

This past Saturday was Easton’s baby shower. My dear friends Mel, Tara, Jules, Erin, Tiffany, Kathy and Jaime were the hostesses and they did a fantastic job. The day was absolutely perfect. Thanks guys - - what would I do without you???? The invitations were amazing, food was delicious, and the decorations were absolutely adorable. I have been so excited for this day to get here and it definitely didn’t disappoint. Easton got soooo many cute things and we fortunately got most of our “Big” items. It is a wonderful feeling to walk in the house and see all of Easton’s “Stuff”. It makes it start to feel really “REAL”!!!! I just imagine him sitting in his little swing or his highchair and it just gives me goose bumps. I am sooo excited for him to get here. I look back at the past few years and all the heart ache, tears, disappointment of trying SOOO hard for a baby just makes me soooo appreciative. All that was 100% worth it. In just a few short months all that effort is going to bring us our little boy. I am so thankful to all my friends and family that have prayed so hard for us and given us so much support. It means the world to us and I am so thankful that Easton is already so loved. Well enough of my prego emotions….I am sitting here at work and don’t want to get too teary eyed. HA!

Here are some pictures of the day and a link at the bottom will lead you to Easton’s shutterfly website where I will keep everyone updated on his pictures. You can click on it now to see all the pictures from the shower. (If you want to).

On a side note, our dog Sage definitely knows what is going on. She has been sooo sad lately. She keeps sniffing my belly and when we got home on Saturday she didn’t like the fact we were bringing in all the gifts. When we started putting things together, she went in the other room and would not even look at us. She is my ultra sensitive dog that gets jealous very easily. She is very much a “mamma’s girl” and she is definitely having a hard time adjusting and Easton hasn’t even gotten here yet! Poor Sage…this is going to be hard for her. However, she is also very “motherly” and I am hoping she will bond with Easton. It will just be a matter of time. Grace on the other hand just thinks all these new toys are for her. She came walking in the other day carrying one of the bows from the gift wanting us to play fetch with her. I doubt she even notices Easton when he gets here…she tends to be happy in her own little world.

Sage - I promise I will still love you!
