Overwhelmed by pink...

So thank to everyone who made it out to the baby was a great day! I probably spent most of the time opening all your precious gifts! Aunt Jen probably got carpel tunnel from writing everything down for me! Barney and Allie you two are amazing and I really can't thank you enough for throwing Avarey and I an amazing shower! And of course extra thanks to my mom an Jen, I don't know what I would do without you guys!

Well now that the shower is over John and I are trying to put Avarey's room together! It's almost there! Were still working on a special painting for her. John has been amazing painting, shelves, letter's, picture frames etc! Manda and my mom are also adding little touches to her room! Avarey is super lucky to have so many people to already love her so much. Jen has been on the hunt for a cute diaper bag...and I believe she finally found one that meets her approval! It only took 2 months! I love her and really don't know what I'll do without her come July. For those of you who don't know, Jen my other half...besides John and Avarey will be leaving us in July to teach abroad in Japan! I'm super proud but sad at the same time!

In the meantime, I'm finally 36 weeks...4 more to go! I feel like a planet, I don't sleep very well otherwise everything is perfect! Avarey and I are both healthy. As fun as it is to feel her squirming around in my belly...I really can't wait to be done with this whole pregnancy thing! I'm very anxious to meet my precious little girl!


  1. awww mel!! i love you mama!! i can't wait to see my little girl....and i'm dreading the time away from my girls...but so excited for the adventure upon me! annnnd yes i found the perfect bag!! i can't wait for you to see it!! LOVE YOU!

  2. I'm glad you've jumped on the blog wagon! We'll have to stick together when Jen's gone and keep each other's spirits up 'til she gets back! I can't wait for our play dates!
