Baby shower and nursery pics

Sunday I had yet another fabulous baby shower! This one was hosted by some of my girlfriends as well as Amelia's aunts, Katie and Mar. Katie was brave enough to host the shower at her new home less than a week after moving in! Everything was so so pretty and I had such a good time seeing friends and family and of course opening more cute gifts for Amelia! Aunt Kathryn even came all the way from Arkansas and surprised us. Amelia is so spoiled already being the first grandchild and niece on both sides of our family. Everyone is just so excited to meet her.

Hard to see the cake, but it has Amelia's monogram and a sweet bible verse on it. Check out the tiny painted pumpkins and the ribbon on top of the green ones. Such a cute idea!

Katie and Kathryn were sweet enough to help me put things away when we got home. Kathryn even fixed the dresser after I broke it while stuffing all the clothes into it!

Oh and here is photo evidence of Aunt Mar putting together the bouncer. She was a big help after my work shower Friday.
Don't know how Katie avoided being in any pics, but she has been a big help in preparing for Amelia so I have to give her credit too! Here are some new pics I took of the nursery. We are pretty much finished, but I have a couple of canvases for the walls that are being painted, and a floor lamp is on its way, but otherwise we are ready for Amelia to move in!

The teapot chandelier is one of my favorite parts of the room, but I couldn't get a good photo of it. I had to turn the lights off and use the flash to get this pic.

Look at all her clothes and bags! This child has been given so much already. We are going to do our best not to let her be a spoiled brat, but it is going to be a challenge with all these grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends who want to keep buying her things. We appreciate everything so much!

Can you tell I am having fun with my new camera? I used to never bother taking pics, but I knew I had to step it up with a little one on the way. I am ready to take some sweet baby pics!

Amelia is going to love her room. I certainly do! It's great that you are essentially finished with all of the preparations... now you can relax and enjoy the last couple weeks of your pregnancy... and build up on your rest!
Congratulations again. All is looking great!
