On Saturday, I attended baby showers for two of my good friends. The first was for Jessica. She and I met when I moved to Pompano Beach with my mother in 9th grade. She and I are 1 year apart and our birthdays are 10 days apart. We became work out buddies and, today, she shares my interests in eating non processed foods and doing things as natural as possible. I am living vicariously through her in her hopes to have an all natural delivery with her baby boy, Christian Alexander Mora. I find myself wanting to teach/warn/ prepare her for experiences that I had and wish that I could redo. I wish her a beautiful and natural delivery. I could not be happier for her and her husband-to-be, Mike!
Here are some photos from her fun "Monkey themed" shower. Christian's nursery is adorable! It is tan and green, monkey themed as well. They all did such a great job with the decor.
Here are some photos from there special day:
And then I was off to Chelsea + Steve's Baby Shower. Chelsea is the reason I met my husband over 17 years ago. She and Mark lived on the same street and waa-laa... I met my future husband when I was about 8 or 9.
Chelsea met and married an amazing man, Steve. As I was taking a million photos at their baby shower, I really was able to see how well they interact, laugh, and share these moments together. They make a beautiful couple. I know they will make amazing parents.
Here are some photos from their special day:
|I had to wear my garnet and gold Tory's for game day - Go Noles! (Janey and her gold flats had the right idea too! And of course, we let the mama to be in with her close to "garnet" toe nails. haha|
Well, there you have it. Two beautiful baby showers and two beautiful baby boys that are on their way.
Jessica and Chelsea, you two are going to be the greatest mothers. Both of you are already so maternal, smart, and loving women. Enjoy these precious moments of feeling those baby boys move inside of you (you will miss that!)
I love you both and thank you for letting me be there with you both on your very special day.
