Evan is technically not due until the 12th of August but all reports indicate he will be here the first week, if not sooner!!! His big sister Sidney will be 3 the last week of July so Lindsay and Nathan will have their hands full!!
As soon as I found out Lindsay was pregnant, I knew I wanted to give her a shower. Why not?!?! I love her, I love babies. Bring.it.on. I also have the wonderful blessing of a ton of people in my family who wanted to help me give this shower.
I wasn't really going for a theme but Lindsay is doing a jungle theme in Evan's room so when I came across this cute invite I latched onto the monkey theme pretty quickly. I just LOVE Etsy. it really is one of the best websites on the planet!
We did the clothesline with all the cute onesies, hats, burp clothes, etc.. AND Lindsay's sister-in-law Jaclynn made, yes MADE, the diaper cover and shoes you see below. AHH-MAZING!The flower arrangements were nothing short of awesomeness. This picture really doesn't do them justice as they were about 4 feet tall. Very cool!And the cupcakes. Melt.my.heart! How stinkin' cute are these?!?!
If you know me, you know I love making diaper cakes. The boys are a little harder because they aren't as "cutesy" but they are still adorable.. I need to do a post of just my diaper cakes --note to self. Again, with the monkey theme. I love how this one turned out. Super cute!!
I love this.. and just had to get a picture. As hostesses we purchased a dual stroller for the Adam's family. It is super cool and I would be registering for one if I knew my older offspring would ride in something other than his Razorback stroller. Anyways, Jaclynn brought it in the house and we quickly realized that 1) it would take a forest of wrapping paper to get this puppy wrapped and 2) it may take several.. SEVERAL.. people to accomplish this goal. SO, we used some covering and called it a day. I really don't even think Lindsay noticed until it was time to open. Good plan girls, good plan!
In the midst of opening gifts I look back to see Kelsey getting a relaxing massage.. Way to take full advantage of the moment kiddo!
Hostess picture: Sandra, My momma, My Meme, Michelle, Lindsay (guest of honor) Jaclynn and me.
Yes, that would be a booty shot. I won't go into the explanation of this but just tell you that there are MANY accidental booty pictures this day, which quickly became a running joke.
We had to get some belly pictures!
We can't wait to meet you, sweet baby Evan. AND a few months after you are here we will have a little buddy for you to play with :)
