The baby shower for Harper Elizabeth
was beyond anything I expected.
Before we started,
Christy's grandmother, my MIL
read a poem to her about mothers.
She had found it in a calendar several years ago
and held on to it believing for our miracle.
She wanted her to have it when she became a mommy.
Grandma has 5 children and 3 children by marriage.
She has 12 grandchildren with 9 more by marriage.
She has 17 great grandchildren.
When we all are there together there are 47 of us.
The hostesses were mostly family
and a few good friends.
Left to right:
My nieces, Dawn, Robin, Sharon
Christy, my sister, Beverli,
a close friend Beverly and cousin Dale
and her grandlove, Tanner.
Two other friends helped but weren't in the photograph.
The girls, the little nieces helped too.
Christy saw friends she hadn't seen in awhile.
There was so much good food and fellowship.
I honestly had as much fun as she did.
A couple of times, I found myself pulling out things before she had a chance to.
Chrsity doesn't like being the center of attention.
I told her I didn't mind.
I don't like photos of myself at all!
I tried doing some major photo chopping/cropping/
whatever you call it.
It didn't work.
I cropped some head shots.
I wanted you to see some of my most ridiculous faces.
It's no wonder I have wrinkles.
Yelp, this did it!
I'm back on track for Weight Watchers after seeing these!
I gave my special order to one of our friends.
She wouldn't let me pay her.
She said, "It's my gift."
We love it!
My niece, Dawn had everyone decorate onsies.
It was fun!
"I hope you like foo-foo."
There were lots of dimonds and divas and buttons and bows,
ribbon and roses and flowers and yes, foo-foo.
This little girl doesn't stand a chance.
I dressed my girl in a different outfit everyday.
My mama said I acted like she was a baby doll.
She WAS my baby doll
and still is!
God has blessed her with a healthy pregnancy.
She hasn't been sick.
Harper's vitals have been perfect as well as hers.
She's had very little swelling and no other problems.
God has given her His favor.
For this we prayed.
