Cute As A Button Baby Shower!

If you know me well at all you know that I am not the best pregnant person. That's probably saying it too kindly. I'm pretty miserable. I'm SO sick the first 16 weeks and then SO tired and uncomfortable at the end that no one needs to come into my line of fire. Not to mention the current stress of Ally's last few weeks, Ryan's new migraine symptoms, Mark having to miss his trip this year because a 35 week prego can't go on a Caribbean cruise.... blah blah blah. Bottom line is, this time has been really hard and I am ready to be D-O-N-E. I know that I shouldn't complain and I am forever reminded that women do this every single day but I am never going to be one of those blissful, joyful, non-swollen, "oh my goodness this is the best time of my life" kind of girl. If you are one of those women that's awesome for you, just don't rub it in!! Strangers constantly telling me I look so cute, or WOW you still have 5 weeks, no way!! It's comical the conversations and comments that I've gotten this time around. Please know that I LOVE the results of pregnancy and I can FINALLY see the light at the end of this tunnel...or birth canal. :).

{Total side note: my kids have been asking 1 million questions about how that baby gets out of my tummy so that has been my "official" answer. Never thought 'd be talking to my 8 and 5 year old about the birth canal, but so be it. They are awesome, inquisitive little people and I can't wait to see them with Brady.}

Basically I am SO thankful that I still have friends and family to call on after the last 9 months...HA! Seriously, I don't think I could have made it without you, so THANK YOU. Some of my very favorite people on the planet insisted on throwing a baby shower for sweet Brady, and I'm so glad they did. I was really hesitant to do it at first simply because it's a third baby and all, but I am grateful they talked me into it because it was the perfect little shower. And, I even managed to take a few pictures of myself pregnant :). I had the best night and felt overwhelmed with gratefulness.

The super cute shower invite done in Brady's nursery colors. LOVED every single Button detail of this night!

Big sister got to join me for the night. She was SUPER excited to go to the shower.
The Button wreath on Kacey's front door---that blue button now sits in Brady's nursery and I love looking at it.
