31 weeks and counting

it's hard to believe i have less than 9 weeks to go with this pregnancy!! it's gone by quickly. i feel so lucky that besides a few aches and pains (and quite a bit of insomnia), it's for the most part, been really easy. in fact, i've so enjoyed the experience. the little kicks and punches are pretty constant these days- and they are magical. i love feeling her wiggle around! fingers are crossed that my good luck continues in the final stretch.  this weekend, my mom threw me a shower for our family and family friends. she included so many cute little details! i was really impressed and incredibly grateful! of course, i was too busy to take a lot of pics, but here are a few i managed before everyone got there...

one of my mom's oldest friends (going back to high school days) made the sweet little chocolate animal favors in the back. they were adorable - giraffes, lions, elephants- i just wish i got a better shot! she also assisted my mom in making the owl cupcakes. they were almost too cute to eat (almost)!

i love this vintage baby scale that my mom got for me (and from what i hear, they're actually quite useful). the little owl tags were made by my friend janey. people wrote down advice for us- something all 1st time parents need!

taking cues from the shower we threw for our friend maggie, she made this adorable banner out of old fabrics of mine that she's held onto since i was in high school. i didn't even recognize them! i really love how she wove the ribbon through..

these log stands were re-used from our wedding. mom stamped the cards and labeled the dishes. love those stamps!

this was the cutest guest at the shower. love this dog!

and here i am a few days before the shower- exactly 31 weeks. i've probably gotten bigger since then (especially with all the yummy foods at the shower)!
