3rd Trimester, Baby Shower, and JOY!



I did not fall off the end of the internet, things have been soooooooooo busy around here. 
First, we are in the third trimester!  I really have a hard time even thinking that without getting teary.  I never thought that we would be here, so close to holding our son.  Guess I forgot to do that whole big post.  We are having a boy and we could not be more excited! 
Second, I had the most amazing baby shower EVER!  Being surrounded by so many people who love us and who already love our son was just amazing.  We are so lucky that so many people in our lives have been so accepting of whatever fertility decisions we have made.  Really, I could not have designed a better group of people if I tried.  Having so many of them in the same room was just something I will never be able to describe and I am not even going to try.
I will give you a few highlights and pictures!!
My sister and mom playing Mad Hatter Croquet!  My sister is also wearing one of the aprons I made for my guests.

Just pure joy!  The night before the shower a bunch of my friends came to my house to get the final touches done.  Nothing like making centerpieces with 2 pairs of scissors and 1 wire cutter!
My sister, my Nana, Sabrina, my mom and me!
I am so lucky that I still have my Nana to share this with us.  She kept looking at Sabrina and saying, "That is my baby."  Nothing could have made that moment more perfect!

I am just so lucky to have so many amazing people in my life.  3 of my friends from high school came from out of town, we had a blast being together.  So many other people were there and it was a BLAST!

I have so much more to talk to you all about and I promise I am going to get better at coming by here.

Jaymee, I can not begin to express how happy I am for you. Both this post and the last one gave me chills (in a good way) to read.

Jaymee, I am so elated and tremendously happy for you. I can remember back being where you are right now. It still did not seem real. And sometimes even though Emma is here, it's still unbelievable. They are such a joy and true miracles. As I look at Emma over there in her swing, I know you will have so much joy in your heart when your little boy comes. I loved the pics, you all look so very happy. You are looking great!

Can't wait to see your new baby boy!

Big hugs!!!!!!!

I agree w/ Circus Princess - it won't be long now!
So happy for you and so touched by your wonderful shower. Too bad we don't have the same tradition here in Sweden...
I might just have one myself just for the party! :)

Becoming a Surrogate Mother can be rough at times, but the challenges are rewarding. It takes a lot to be one, however, surrogate mothers should be proud of what they are doing.
