Pink Overload!

We had a nice weekend as usual. On Saturday, we had the first baby shower for little miss (she's having another next Saturday), given by our good friends Mike & Holly. It was a really fun, casual co-ed affair where all our friends spoiled our little one and us shamelessly. Matt's step mom, Sherrie, even braved our cruddy weather and flew in from TN to celebrate with us.

As I mentioned, little miss got a ton of great gifts. She has tons of awesome clothes … lots of pink and some purple and green and yellow too and some great stuffed animals and we've got lots of practical things for her care and up-keep. Everyone was so generous. We're very lucky to have such awesome people in our lives!!

    I love pink baby girl clothes. Lila's closet is basically a pink explosion as well. I figure she'll grow out of it eventually, so I might as well dress her how I want for now .
