The BEST Baby Shower EVER!

Yes, I realize I sound like a 12 year old, but I can't help but brag! I had my baby shower this morning, and everything was so perfect, every detail coordinated. I'm so lucky to have such wonderfully talented, caring friends that would go to such lengths to throw such a great shower for me. I got a few pictures of the decorations and details, but my friend Heather has more of that and the guests that I may have to post later. (Oh, and yes, I am posting some pregnancy pictures of me below. Don't judge, surely I'll look normal again in a year or so.) The adorable invitation...(Faith hosted the shower at her new house 2 weeks after moving in, and everything was AMAZING!)
The SWEET baby banner which was precious and this picture doesn't do it justice at all. Me and the girls in front of the cupcakes and drinks.
The hostesses w/me: Kyler, Faith, Tara, Me, Shannon, Heather
My family that came in for the shower: Mom, Anastyn, Grandma Del, Me, Erin and the girls. (My sister-in-law Kesha would've been here too, but she is also pregnant and gets carsick which is magnified by pregnancy, so we missed her, but are looking forward to another baby in the family to love.)
The girls helping me open the gifts. They LOVED digging into the presents for their new little brother. I'm pretty sure they thought the shower was for them. There was a little confusion that the baby would also be arriving today, but I think we got that worked out.
We got lots of great things for the little man, and I am now more excited than ever for him to get here. Thanks again to all of our friends and family for being here and helping us celebrate the arrival of the still nameless Baby Boy Lawrence. We are so blessed to be surrounded by such a great support system.

Looks like a great shower and you look great! I noticed one of your girls is holding Babywise. I used that with all my kids and I highly recommend it!
