Baby Wilson: Showered with Love

In case you haven't heard, the hubs and I are expecting a wee babe. Because of the sizes of our family, we split up the baby showers. His family threw us one and my mom threw us one. We really are so lucky to have such wonderful family and friends that helped make both days extra special. Words cannot begin to express all the love we feel! Everyone was so generous with what they gave us. I don't know what we would do without our family! I just thought I would share some of the photos from both days. :)

This baby is already so loved and it hasn't even arrived yet! I'm so excited that he/she will be arriving very soon. :) We can't wait! Next up, I hope to be posting photos of our finished nursery...


  1. Aww I love the turtle motif for the first shower! And I looooove how everyone looks so happy. You look amazing lady!

  2. You are so beautiful, and have such beautiful families! I love the turtle diaper cake and real cake! :)

    Hey! You forgot the "Kelly tearing up" pic! ;)

    Love the turtle things, so cute!!!

  4. Thanks so much! Both of our families totally embraced the turtle theme and we got some really adorable things. :)

  5. I second Xaarlin's comment - you all look so happy! And I love that dress you had for the second shower! :) It sounds like you both have wonderful, supportive families, which is going to be so awesome as you navigate life as a new parent.

  6. Thanks! Oh yes, there are some of those from both showers. I just couldn't help it!

  7. Thanks! Turtles is the nursery theme so I'm really happy that our families totally embraced it! We got so many adorable turtle gifts! I'll have to highlight them when we get the nursery finished. :)

  8. Thanks! Yes, we are very lucky and feel so fortunate to have such wonderful and supportive families that will love (and spoil) our little nugget. :)

  9. Ahh! I absolutely love all of these photos! The favors and cake are so cute, too! I had a bridal shower at Cooper's Hawk and I absolutely loved it! I'm so excited for you, Kelly - you are so close!

  10. Thanks! The food at both showers was delicious. Both of my families know me well and totally catered the food options to be things that I like. It was really sweet.

    We are getting excited! I might do a post for all the baby prep stuff that has been done. I'm hoping to get the carseat installed today! :)
