Oh, Baby


Have you ever had a day that was so fantastic, so filled to the brim with fabulousness that you could barely process it all?

I remember at our wedding rehearsal I had my dad walk me down the aisle when things were all wrapped up; nothing was feeling real and I needed a moment to make it all sink in. The entire weekend felt surreal and wonderful and way too amazing to be absorbed as I wanted.

This weekend has been that way a little bit. Bradley and I have known about our pregnancy for nearly seven months, so I've finally gotten the hang of that part. The whole 'baby' element, though, I'm still processing.

So to have a group of my very favorite women on Earth gather to celebrate the impending arrival of baby Mac - well, that left me pretty close to speechless. And absolutely drove home the excitement of having a little boy on the way.

I've spent this weekend, filled with friends trickling in and out of town, in a sort of fog. If I'd really been able to process everything and absorb all of the love and excitement our friends and family were sharing with us, I'd have been in tears from start to finish, no doubt.

I've never seen a baby shower with more thoughtful, lovely details and more excited hostesses. I can't wait to share pictures tomorrow - in the meantime, just know that true friends are irrefutable evidence of God's love. Because surely I could never have done anything to deserve such genuinely giving, supportive, big-hearted women in my life!

I LOVE this cake. Too precious. Your words describe the exact way that I felt the weekend of my baby shower. It's an amazing feeling to be 'showered' isn't it? I love your blog, by the way!
