Showered with gifts!

Dylan and I are so blessed!  We visited the cold north (where we are both from) and were given two baby showers!  We were beginning to get a little nervous when we realized just how much stuff is needed for a baby.  A few months ago we thought you buy a crib, and a few diapers and you are good to go.  Apparently babies require a lot more!  After our weekend and many extremely generous friends, we are feeling much more prepared. 

Our first shower took place near Pittsburgh at the church in which Dylan grew up.  It was given by his mom and aunt.

Trying to guess the size of my belly.

No one guessed smaller than I am.

Apparently I look bigger than I am.  Is that a good or bad thing?

They thought of every little detail down to matching the napkins and favors to our colors!baby showers-19 baby showers-20 baby showers-21

We were given so many clothes that really match our style, including many ‘rock star’ items.

I can’t wait to meet our little boy and use all of our new gifts!

Cruising at Grand Turk

When I saw the theme for Photo Friday, I figured it would be the perfect opportunity to share a few photos from our cruise.

I can’t think of a better way to spend the day… especially since the beaches were pretty much empty.

We were fortunate that both Dylan’s and my parents were able to join us, which gave us the perfect opportunity to share our baby news.  This picture was taken after we had been snorkeling all day.

We were planning a cruse for next November, but found out that they have a rule that babies must be 6 months old :-(  Our little guy will only be 5 months.
