baby girl, you are loved

A baby shower brunch with all the family and a few friends was held at GiGi’s house last Saturday. GiGi, Nonie, Auntie Em and my dear friend, Brittany, did such a great job! The house was covered with flowers, photos from our maternity shoot and just an overall sweet girlie theme. We had mimosas in mason jars {with nonalcoholic champagne for mommy}, chiche and french toast. I most definitely had two cupcakes {and took the leftovers home} but they were SO yummy! 

You got so much good stuff! So many handmade blankets and personal touches that made me teary. Auntie Em went way overboard and your baby bag filled with clothes, toys, hair bows and she got you an “E” necklace to match the one she had when she was a baby. She also wrote you a letter I’ll give you a little later. So sweet. Oh, and I told you I was obsessed with lambs, right? I think you have 4 already. One was daddy’s when he was a baby 🙂 

My friend Amber came in town also and stayed for a few days to help me paint the stencil on the wall in your room. After several trips to Lowe’s and Home Depot, we finally got it all finished and it looks AMAZING! Thank goodness Amber’s determined and patient. I never would have finished it all without her. I dropped off your crib to be refinished and painted and it should be done next week. I just need to get your dresser now. Things are coming together!

We also had a doctor appointment on Tuesday with Dr. Peakes. She thought my belly measured a little small she had us get an ultrasound. You are about 4lbs 2oz. Little, but not abnormally small or anything. You just may be a little baby! However, in the ultrasound they also detected an arrhythmia (where your heart double beats or skips a beat). So, I’m seeing a specialist on Friday to look at it further. Dr. Peakes isn’t worried about it though. She said most babies that have this outgrow it before birth. I’m not gonna worry unless the specialist  finds something worth worrying about. Just stinks Daddy is leaving for the Tickfaw poker run in Louisiana today and won’t be back until Sunday. I’m super bummed I’m not going. Like suuuuuuuuuper bummed. But there’s no way of knowing how the water will be and I can’t chance it being too rough for me to ride with you in tow. Everything would probably be fine, but Dr. Peakes said I need to take it easy and rest. Just you, me and the puppies this weekend!
