Blessings for Briley!!

April 18th was the first baby shower for Briley and it was wonderful! It was given by a wonderful group of women (Priscilla Horn, Sarah West, Lacey Franklin, Jamie Cunningham, and Faye Alldredge) that I am so thankful to have in my life! It was so nice to visit with friends and we received so many wonderful and fun gifts!

This past Saturday, was the family shower given by my sweet Aunt Paige, my best friend Tracy, and my cousin Tiffani. It was SO BEAUTIFUL and I am so thankful for all that they did! It was once again a wonderful time of visiting and opening presents to spoil Briley with!

If you click the link below you will see pictures from both occasions. Thank you again to everyone...Briley, Daniel, and I are truly blessed.

My friend Tracy finished the letters for Briley's room and they are amazing!! I can't wait to hang them above her crib :)

Here are a few updated pictures of her room...

The aftermath from the showers!!

We have ALOT to do!

Her closet is getting pretty full...she won't wear the same thing twice the first year of her life :)

Daniel put the stroller together and Goose and Gracie wanted to help...thank you to Grandma, Pop, Nonnie, and Papa for her car seat/stroller set!

The changing table/dresser is done and ready to be stained! Daniel is working so hard to get everything finished in time...he is planning on starting the last piece of furniture very soon! It has been a lot of work and with his busy schedule he has still managed to do so much...I know Briley will treasure it later that her Daddy built her furniture for her.

I will be 34 weeks on Tuesday :) I can't believe how close it is...yet not close enough! My plan for the next two weeks is get her room back in order and get my bag ready for the hospital.

Congrats to our friends Amy and Brandon...they welcomed their little girl Eleanor into the world a week ago (check out their beautiful family on my friends list...The Cox Family Blog)!! 2 deliveries down (Jamie and Amy) and 4 more to go (Myself, Trish, Morgan, and Tracy). Lots of blessings coming soon!!!

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!!

It looks like you had a great time and got some wonderful baby items. I am so sad that I missed the shower. We can't wait to meet Baby Briley soon!
