Hello dear ones! Well, I’m 36 weeks prego now and just waiting for Leeland to arrive. I’ve had some false alarms and it’s a bit frustrating. I just pray that the timing will be right and I’m choosing to trust God to help me.

Meanwhile, my best friend Hannah threw me an owl themed baby shower. You may remember that I threw her a tea party baby shower last year. Here’s the link for that:
A Tea Party Baby Shower for Hannah

I have plenty of pics to show you. First, Chris and I took my 35 weeks prego pics in our back yard. Chris’ parents came in for the shower and his mom helped us out. It was nice because up until this point we didn’t have any pics of Chris kissing my belly. Chris is smitten by our lil one and it truly shows in these pictures. So without further ado..here they are.

Remember the shower I threw for Hannah? Well, it was for Miriam, the lil bundle of cuteness Hannah’s holding in her arms. Miriam is a one year old now!

My dear friend Erin, who watched over Miriam so Hannah could set up. She also makes the best chocolate cookies…just sayin’.
