On March 14th, we had our first two showers in Nashville. The first was a Family Shower hosted by Jeremy's family. Our sister-in-law Elizabeth did a wonderful job with the decorations. Pictures of Jeremy and me from when we were babies surrounded the room and little onesies hung over the fireplace.
Two of our favorite gifts were a quilt that my mom made and a Baby Blessings Book that contained prayers of blessing from each person in the family. Before the shower began, each person read their baby blessing to Nolan. Bre put all of the blessings together in a scrapbook that will always be one of the most treasured items in Nolan's nursery.
Having my Pa there was very special to me. He even got to feel Nolan kick. Pa exclaimed with surprise, "He bit me" and then told me Nolan would have to get a spanking.
Our next shower was hosted by some of my dearest friends from Lipscomb. The shower honored Keely and me. These girls have been apart of so many milestones in my life. It was so neat to share this occasion with them and be blessed by their love for our new baby.
Keely is six weeks ahead of me and we are both expecting boys! Caleb Thomas is set to arrive on Mother's Day while Nolan's due date is on Father's Day. It was so special to share this celebration with Keely.
Kristy and Addison also came by to help us celebrate. One of my favorite parts of the shower was getting to catch up with friends. Jeremy and I both felt so overwhelmed by all of the love shown to us on this day. We are truly thankful for all of our family and friends.
