33 weeks and baby shower!

33 weeks (last week)

We had our first baby shower this past weekend, hosted by my wonderful and dear friend (more like a sister) Nora and it was an absolute blast! Ryan and I cannot get over how blessed we are to have such amazing friends and family. It just blows our mind how excited everyone is about BB! I mean, why shouldn't everyone be excited right? Our kid is going to be a spoiled bucket of awesome.

For the weekend festivities, Ryan's cousin, Kyle, wife Amy and kiddo Konner, came in for the weekend and we had such a great time. Their baby is such a sweet and happy little boy. We think Zapato will take his role as big brother very seriously. He came running (RUNNING) into whichever room Konnor was in anytime he would start to cry.

3.5 generations

Me with the wonderful hostess, Nora.

Finally, we had our rocking chair repainted and reupholstered. This particular rocking chair rocked all three generations of women in the picture above. All rocked by my great-grandmother.
