Our 2nd Set of Belly Pictures

Will and I were blessed with another pregnancy! We found out that we were pregnant with twins, but a few weeks later we found out that we lost one of our babies. We are very thankful for God's mercy for our surviving baby and to let us be the parents of our sweet baby for eight weeks (baby was only measuring eight weeks at our twelve week ultrasound). 

Now, these pictures are a true snapshot of my life with two year old twins. Often my hair is in a mom-bun, I have no make-up, and I'm probably in clothes that are half a step up from pajamas! So I ask for grace and humor for the pictures where I look like a mess.

Nautical Baby Shower

I recently threw my best friend, Aly, a baby shower for her baby boy, Lincoln! It was so much fun to make all of the decorations and to see it all come together!

For favors, I made Sea Salt Scrubs (Sea Salt/Coarse Salt, Coconut Oil, and Essential Oils). I used grapefruit, orange, lavender, and eucalyptus essential oils.

 The centerpieces are my pride and joy! I made diaper cakes with cute little whales on top. (Bases are 9 in. cake boards covered with cardstock, ribbons are hot glued on, anchors and whales were cut using my silhouette, and the final touch was the crinkle blue paper).

One of the activities we had was a Late Night Diaper Station where we had sharpies and diapers for the guests to write on. The Poop Deck sign was a funny touch.

For the guest book, I bought a wooden anchor, painted it white, and painted Lincoln's name on it. I bought thin sharpies so that guests could write a sweet message for baby Lincoln and sign their name.

The large backdrop is actually a shower curtain!
