Baby Shower Goodness!!

Here is our little sweetie at 9 days old. She was almost back up to her birth weight. Such a good eater! The dress was WAY too big. Britt's mom took it in at several places so it wouldn't fall off of her. She looked so pretty for her party, wouldn't you agree?!!

Ian and Britt got lots of baby goodness!! I would guess around 35-40 people attended the shower. It was great to see all of the support that the kids have! Really what a tremendous blessing...

We had plenty of yummy food, too! We kept it simple with finger foods and sandwiches. Thanks Mom and Karm!! And we had yummy bubbly punch too!

I managed to sneak a photo of the proud parents too. Let me just say it wasn't easy with a houseful of guests. They were very popular!

The group gift that Mom, Karmyn and I gave the kids. Obviously she can't use it for awhile, but we thought (rightfully) that most people would provide things they need immediately.

She was one sleepy little girl after being passed around. But that's ok, she's just as gorgeous sleeping as she is awake. I could and do just sit and stare at her. She is beautiful!!

I am so amazed by this little girl of ours. She is such a tremendous blessing to our family. So healthy and so alert. Ian and Britt came over for dinner tonight and I loved every minute of spending time with them! She is almost back up to her birth weight at 4 lbs 14 oz. She eats like a little champ! Here are some new photos of Baby Stephani at 5 days:

That's all I have for today. Off to get some rest! Good night!

Happy 4th!

I am looking forward to hanging out with family today and eating some yummy BBQ. I love summer for these reasons. Getting together, hanging out and eating.

Saw Ian and Brittany last night. Amazing how fast her tummy has grown. Baby Stephani is sure to make her arrival before too long. I can't wait to meet our newest addition. I felt her moving in her mama's tummy last night. What an awesome reminder of God's miracles!

Today also marks the end of Boy Scout camp for Brenden. I have missed him so much! I know he must have had a blast! The lake was so inviting and peaceful when I dropped him off on Sunday, I truly wanted to just stay there.I knew the kids were going to miss each other tremendously. They aren't use to being apart for so long. I will have just enough time to get everything washed and re-packed as Little Miss leaves for Girl Scout camp on Sunday.
