Baby Showers

I have amazing family and friends who have been so supportive and extra excited that baby boy is on his way.  We wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to join with us in celebrating and we did that through four baby showers.  This was another one of those things that I always wondered if I would get a chance to have.  Although I don't love being the center of attention, I do love that we finally had the chance to have baby showers for OUR baby!  It was awesome and just so much fun.

So cute!  This is where I got the name banner that is now hanging over Benson's crib.

I love shower games, measuring how much water a newborn diaper holds.

Jenn is going to kill me for posting this, but seriously, the best picture ever!

Thank you to everyone who came to one of the showers, bought us gifts and amazing items for the baby and just for all of your love and support.  We are SO blessed!
