Ellie Mae's first shower

My mom and mother in law gave Ellie and me the sweetest shower.  I am loving all the cute pink and gray or pink and brown with elephant prints I keep seeing.  So that was kind of the theme.  Basically my mom and Julie were so excited to finally be able to use pink to decorate that everything was PINK!  It was a great time with friends and family and Ellie racked up in some cute clothes but also some essentials
Zeke helped to open the presents.  Ben slept through most of the shower.  Zeke had a blast opening each gift.  When I said who it was from he scanned the room and said "Who's ____?" Once he fuond them he pointed to them and told them their name.  Then he got down to business with throwing pink tissue paper and yanking the gift out.  He was so excited about each gift, it was so very sweet.

 Flipping awesome cake made my my sister in law Tori

 Napkin (too lazy to change the direction after loading it, sorry)

 Look at that belly! 

 Ellie's first ballet item, a bib!
Quick sidenote: Z had just opened the milk storage bottles and I thought they were bags.  He asked what they were and I was trying to delicately tell my 3 year old what they are used for.  He declared them "MILK BAGS!" after I tried to explain.  He was probably most excited about them.

 This was Zeke's "it's adorable!" face

 He got a little excited and threw the presents at me after he opened them

 He also swung any clothing/blankets around in circles

This was my face while he was swinging everything

Thank you everyone who came and showered us.  We feel much more prepared now with a good dose of pink.  Well, I feel more prepared.  I think Spence feels a bit more overwhelmed looking at all those super cute outfits!

Like you, we had 2 boys, lost a baby, then had our daughter. We always knew that we would not have had our daughter if we had not lost the other baby (who was "short circuited into Eternity" and I know now awaits us).

We always said she is the "icing on the cake." It is so good for boys to have a sister and also for a girl to have brothers. As young adults, they have helped each other in so many ways.

Blessings to your family as you embark on a whole new PINK adventure! Dolls, ballet, and all things soft and frilly !!!
