Hello girls! I hope my post finds all well with everyone! As most of you know Saturday and Sunday were my baby showers this weekend, needless to say, I've been quite busy over the last 48 hours. We must have had about 40-50 people at each shower and feel VERY blessed with all the gifts we’ve received. I feel MORE than ready to have a baby now than ever before. I cannot believe how generous people are, especially our families.
Anyways, it would take me practically forever to mention every single item we received, but lets just say the next few weeks before the delivery of our LO will be spent writing thank-you notes. As for the loot - here is a basic list of the items we received from both showers.

I am very tired…so I'm heading off to bed after posting this - what a weekend! I just spent about 2 hours with my mom in our basement tonight trying to organize everything into piles (I will have to post pictures of the stuff once I get those taken too!)
