Boy, Oh Boy Shower Weekend!

This weekend I felt overwhelmed again by the amazing family and friends we have surrounding us in this season of preparing for Jude. What a HUGE blessing!

My Mama and Sister threw a shower for Jude and it was so special. Here are some of the moments...

 
Hostesses! My mama and sister :)

 Amazing cake... so delicious and beautiful!

 
Praying for Jude... a sweet, sweet time!
 
So special... many wonderful ladies!! :)

 
 My Grammy! She is turning 80 on March 23rd... two days before Jude's due date. Fun!


So many nice gifts for Jude - we are blessed!


Entering week 37... and realizing that means only 3 weeks till our "official" due date. Patience is really becoming something that I have to daily choose to think about. I am working on "surrendering" in these moments and soaking up the time with Josh.

Organizational plans are in full affect and we are so blessed to have everything we need for Jude all ready to go! God is soooo good!

We had an awesome weekend! Hope you did too!!

Ria, you and Jude are so blessed, to have so many family and friends who love and pray for you both is a blessing.
You are in the final stretch. I am excited for you. Try to soak in the last few weeks, I always looked so forward to the end that I didn't soak in the end of my pregnancies. So soak it up and enjoy it and how it makes you feel.
