Avery's Library Themed Baby Shower

Pin It!

Saturday was our baby shower and I feel absolutely overwhelmed by everyone that came to spend the afternoon with us and shower our baby girl with love and generous gifts. My best friend Kandi and my mom hosted the shower at mine and Brandon's house and we decided to go with a library theme :-) We found the invitations on Etsy and they were made out of old library cards that used to go inside the front of the books. 
We asked everyone to bring a book instead of a card, and now we have quite the little library started for her!

Now for picture overload

My dad was caught sneaking food before anyone had arrived
A picture of my mom when she was pregnant with me
We had the taco man come and cater all-you-can-eat tacos, and they were delicious.
The amazing hostess Kandi who not only put the whole shower together with my mom, but also gifted us not one, but TWO Bumbleride strollers.
The red one is lighter weight and breaks down smaller than the turquoise jogger stroller. Could we be any luckier?

 It might just be pregnancy hormones, but I get teary-eyed every time I think about how blessed we really are to be surrounded by such amazing friends and family. I keep thinking about how lucky little Avery will be. Our little family is so lucky.

I'm also thankful for Brandon's mom who snapped the only picture I have with Brandon before the boys left.
8 more weeks baby!!
