A few weeks ago my amazing mom flew out to visit for a week of catching up, and for her to attend my baby shower! It was so much fun. We went for walks and explored the new neighborhood, went out for mu shu, and caught up on lots of missed time. I'm so glad she's coming back in about a month when the baby arrives!
My dear friend Autumn threw me a shower that totally blew my mind! She and my friend Taylor transformed our house with paper bunnies and duckies, streamers and pom poms. Ian's mom, Suzanne, brought vases of tulips, and both my mom and Suzanne cooked a tea party feast for all the guests! Suzanne even made a bunny cake!
It was quite overwhelming, but in a good way. I never imagined that so many people would come and shower us with such love and generosity, after knowing us for a mere 6 months or less! We also had family and friends drive up from Federal Way, Tacoma, and Olympia! Ian and I are extremely excited about the little one's arrival in a month, but even so it's a little scary moving somewhere new, and then almost immediately finding out you're pregnant for the first time. God's been so good providing lots of support and encouragement through everything! Baby Girl Brown now has almost everything she needs (clothes, teething rings, blankets and sheets, binkies, thermometer, sunglasses... you name it!) but most of all, she has a second family to love on her, even before she's seen the world. What a gift!
