Hospital Bag

Okay, I've been obsessing over my hospital bag for awhile now! I'm sure every new mom gets a little overwhelmed when it comes to packing the "MUST HAVE" items! I just do not want to get to the hospital and realize I've forgotten something super important or something that I can't do without! So, with that said- I've put together a little 'hospital bag' packing guide!

I would LOVE to hear from some of my other mama friends to see if I'm forgetting anything important?! Also, I found this super cute hospital checklist printable on Pinterest! Click HERE to print! Ahhh things are getting SO real!!! :)

My Sweet Boy

Dear Liam, 

You're almost here! Mommy will be 35 weeks on Friday! I literally can't believe it! Time has been absolutely flying by! Your daddy has been working SO hard on getting your room perfect for your arrival and mommy has been nesting like crazy! Besides the finishing touches your room is pretty much complete! I find myself spending most of my free time in your nursery just imagining you here in my arms. You are everything I've ever hoped and dreamed of! The love I have for you already is so hard to explain. It's like nothing I've experienced before. You consume all my thoughts, and make appearances in almost every single dream. 

As these next 4-5 weeks come and go I want to take in every moment. I don't want to forget a single second of this wonderful experience. You are everything to me! Your daddy and I love you SO much and can't wait to meet you!! 

PS- I took a picture of my swollen feet today so that I can add it to your baby book! I figured one day you'll appreciate the fact that I grew "cankles" just for you! :)

Mommy & Daddy love you Liam!!! 

xoxo

Love, Mama!

Baby Shower

AHHH!! I'm finally getting around to blogging about my absolutely AH-mazing baby shower! :) It seriously couldn't have been any better! I decided I wanted to have a woodland/outdoor/camp out themed baby shower and my mom and MIL made that vision come to life!! Liam seriously got everything he could possibly need or want!! He is one, truly blessed and loved little boy! I won't go on and on about my family/friends but they are some
wonderful people! We are SO blessed and thankful!! 

I will let the pictures do the rest of the talking! :) 
Trail mix bar and cake display table! {Thanks to my hubby for chopping down the wood for all the tables!} 
My cake was handmade by Justin's aunt! I wanted a naked cake with fresh fruit and she came in carrying this masterpiece! Literally the BEST cake I've ever seen or tasted! 
SOOOO DELICIOUS! 
We had chicken salad croissants, fruit & veggie trays, chips, fruit & coffee punch, cookies & cake! The food was delicious!! 
The bunting on his cake was SOOO cute! 
Diaper wreath I made for the front door! 
The best cookies from The Cake Ladies!! 
Guest tables!
My MIL made this basket and gave me all of Justin's baby blankets! 
I literally opened gifts for an hour or more!!! 
Don't mind my chubby preggo cheeks but this was right before the waterworks began! My mom gave me a gift from my Gramma who passed away. Before my Gramma passed away from cancer she wrote letters to all of her future great grand-babies! Talk about an ugly cry... I was a HOT mess! I made everyone cry! 
Liam's letter L, my flowers & new Scentsy warmer for Liam's room!! 
Onesies and bib display! 

Such a picture perfect shower!! A HUGE thanks to my mama & MIL for hosting the best shower and thank you SO much to everyone who came and showered Liam and I with lots of love!
