Reality Check

My mom left today. We are settling in for two whole weeks of us being alone with our family. Scary! Anyway, we are going to be getting into a schedule.

We had a baby shower right before she left. Laura put on a pretty good party.

Heather made this beautiful cake. I'm amazed how great she got "my style." She's such a talented person.

We tasted baby food which just confirmed my suspicions that we should never just pick up whatever and feed it to our kids. That stuff is DISGUSTING! Bring on the squash, forget the green stuff.

Got so many AWESOME gifts, both cute and practical. Love my friends. They take care of me.

And everyone fawned over my beautiful new daughter. But don't think that Abby was neglected. That kid made out like a bandit on Christmas. I can't believe how much stuff she got! Everyone wants to make sure she doesn't feel left out. What a great group of people!

Thank you, Laura and everyone. I am so grateful to be a part of such a great group of people and such a loving church.

  1. We never fed our kids baby food. The first time I tried that with my baby girl, she looked at me as if to say, "I don't see you eating it, so why should you expect me to eat it."

    The cake is beautiful. I wish I could have been there. Had to take the baby girl to get some stuff for Junior/Senior. It won't be long, and that's what you'll be doing. They grow way too fast!
