Pregnancy Photos

Mom's good friend, Melanie, agreed to take some pregnancy photos of Mom and we think they turned out pretty great! They were taken on Melanie's parents property and Mom and Melanie had a lot of fun finding different places to take them. Thanks Aunt Melanie! I can't wait to meet you!

Almost Ready

I guess my room is pretty nearly ready for me and my family (especially Mom) is ready for me to come too. I know I still have a good month before I will be ready, but it is good to know things are in place so that I will be as comfortable as possible in my new home. Mom has a few simple things she wants to do (i.e. replace a knob on a bedside table she found at an antique store and then re-painted) before posting a final picture of my room, but it will happen soon.

My family went up to the Seattle area for the 4th and Dad took this photo of Mom relaxing in the grass while my brother, Jonah, danced along to some music that was playing in downtown Bainbridge Island.

A Baby Shower

Mom's friends, Mary and Sara, threw her a baby shower this past weekend. It was a fun time for everyone with lots of yummy food (all Greek!). I wish we would've gotten a group picture, but I think there were a total of 14 women there (not including me). Mom feels so lucky to have so many wonderful girlfriends in her life. I got totally spoiled by everyone and will be wearing the cutest clothes. It's a good thing Mom and I love pink 'cause we've got a ton of it now! Here are some photos from the shower.

Here is all the yummy Greek food Mary and Sara made. It was so delicious!

Here's a close-up. You can also see Mary decorated the table with different pieces of fabric. Mary and her mom are making dresses for me out of the fabric as a gift. What a creative idea! The fabrics are all so adorable.

Here's a photo of Mary and Mom. It's hard to believe Mom and Mary have known each other for almost 15 years now, but we can hardly imagine our life without Aunt Mary.

Thanks for throwing such a wonderful shower, girls!
