Monday Mayhem - Lil' Pumpkin's Growing Stash & Baby Carnation Status

The highlight of my pregnancy so far has been the showering of gifts for Lil' Pumpkin. Although all these things are for our baby, I am greedily enjoying these presents for myself! But I'm sure Lil' P will appreciate them just as much :)


I headed to The Resort this weekend to attend a friend's wedding and spend some time with the fam. While I was there, I received so many fun things! (PS...pay NO attention to the make-up-less preggo woman...focus on the cute baby gifts!)



The G's (my grandparents) got me several summer maternity tops in pink, peach and blue!




Mom and Dad gifted us some fun and super cute baby items! I've already cracked open the book, learning what to expect and what to purchase! They also got Lil' Pumpkin its very first book! And of course, every child needs a RUBBER DUCKIE! (rubber duckie, you're the one. You make bathtime so much fun!)

Based on this next photo, you might think I've lost all self control in eating healthy, but there's a reason for 4 boxes of cookies. I LOVE Archway Molasses cookies! And last time I was at home, my parents discovered that Archway has discontinued making them :( But apparently my super shopper parents were able to find the 4 last boxes known to man :)

LOOK how cute this reindeer fleece is! OH my goodness. Our baby is going to be the CUTEST thing ever! Look at the little reindeer heads on the feet!

After all the gift opening, we headed out back for the first fishing of the season. We were very sucessful in catching many "baby fish" and getting the bass to come around, but unsuccessful in catching the bass :( but at least we know they're here and hungry this season!

All cleaned up and ready to go to the wedding! It was a wonderful ceremony at a beautiful church!

And finally, to make up for all of my NO make up photos, here's another one of my super cute maternity dresses my parents got me! I wore it to church on Sunday and got SO many compliments! Its good to feel beautiful when you're not feeling so thin anymore :)

BABY CARNATION UPDATE!!! Well, the weekend provided some activity of the flowers. It is harder to see on these pictures than in person, but it appears we've got some wiltage going on here. 2 blue and 1 pink have turned toward the wiltage side. And below that, you'll see that 2 pink and 1 blue are standing strong!

what fun baby gifts! I am a bit jealous that you are now receiving 9 months worth of "birthday and christmas" presents :/ atehehehe. I have to admit, though, that I too want to buy LOTS of stuff for the little one, but am reigning some self control until we know if I should be buying pink or blue! Your flower dress is SO pretty, no wonder you got so many compliments! It was great seeing you, I had such a good time!

Meg said...

I've never tried Archway cookies but I just cut out a coupon for some! Now I'm excited to go get some.

You look amazing in your pictures! The lil pumpkin is going to have so much stuff!
