Franklin Shower #2

After the first shower, the girls ran around cleaning and preparing for the second shower. I ran home and made a wardrobe change, thinking this would be cuter. Looking at pictures, I realized I'm big either way you look at it..oh well. Here are the two pregnant ladies starting up the food line. Notice the big smiles at all the delicious food choices.
I think I must have mentioned to everyone how much I love monogrammed baby gifts, and everyone granted my wishes. I got tons of great gifts with Eli's name on them. There's just something about seeing his name or initials on his little things...
Here we are with Zachary, who is leaning over to give me a sweet kiss. Zachary was born around week 23 and just recently had his two year birthday--such a blessing!
Here are most of my sweet girlfriends who were at the shower. The two on the far left, Christa and Corinne, threw me the shower at Corinne's beautiful home. I love my sweet friends and wish we could see eachother all the time. I hope they'll all be planning a trip to visit Knoxville really soon!
This is one of my very best friends Katie. She and I have been friends since we were around 9. We have gone to every school together, and were roommates in college. She's wonderful. Did you notice? She's pregnant too. I could not be more excited to share this with her. Baby Aiden is due June the 2nd, and we can't wait to meet him.
See the framed invite? It matched the two cakes perfectly!
Here I am again, smiling and swollen with love and gratitude at all the amazing people who came to our baby showers and gifted us with great baby gifts and love. Matthew and I are extremely blessed to have such wonderful family and friends.


  1. Yay! Glad I will be able to track your daily events with Eli so I can see what is about to head my way in a few months! You look wonderful by the way!!
