Not only has it been showering in the sense of nonstop rain in Norfolk, but Jackson has been showered with love from so many of our friends in the last two weeks.
On September 18th, I had a shower in Springfield hosted by mom's best friends, Mrs. Dutton, Mrs. Hallah, Mrs. Chenoweth and Mrs. Chapin. It was filled with special details, like an amazing diaper cake, delicious homemade food and rubber duckies in the blue punch. I am so grateful for how these women have loved me during my time at First Baptist in Springfield, how they love mom now and how they already love Jackson so much! Jackson got a ton of books, which we are so grateful for! We can't wait to read to our little guy and to use all of the practice and cute things we received at this shower. Thanks mostly for the prayers for the three of us.
Then, on September 24th I had a great shower from all the ladies at work, hosted by Michelle in Virginia Beach. Jackson got some great onesies, sheets and the most precious North Face winter outfit so we can pound the pavement as soon as my doctor allows us to! Jen Paet amazed us again with her homemade cake that was cute and delicious. Michelle organized games that I had never seen at a shower before. One was drawing a picture of Jackson on a plate that was placed on top of your head....we had some ugly looking babies! :) Next, we played 'guess the baby food'....bananas, plums with brown rice, and peas....gross! Luckily, I got a great cookbook from Shannon about making homemade baby food!
Thanks to everyone who has surrounded us with support as we get ready to officially welcome Jackson into the world sometime in the next month!
