We were SO spoiled and loved. Our little one is incredibly lucky to have so many people that already love him/her so much. I'm not good at receiving gifts, I never have been. I was always the girl that didn't like making a list for Santa. I'd rather give gifts than receive them, but we all know how these beautiful little babies get spoiled!
First two of my sisters, Angela and Ashley, and my mother threw us a Family shower at our house. It was a great time! We got to see family that we don't get to see often, and all of the little ones got to play together. It was really fun. Having all of my sisters there was great, and we even got a good sister photo! Both sides of our family were there, and everyone got to mingle. It was a beautiful day for a BBQ!
Here's a picture of me with my sisters:

That Friday at work, there was a baby shower for us at work! My boss and two of my team mates did a great job. I was blown away! Unfortunately we didn't get any pictures (it was a surprise so I didn't have my camera) but it was great. Everyone was so generous and caring, I would never expect something like that from coworkers. I felt truly blessed!
A couple of our friends, Cindy and Tiffany, threw us a "friends" shower that weekend. It was crazy! There were so many people, and we were happy to see friends we don't get to see very often. Everyone was so excited about the baby, and were so generous. We have a very spoiled baby! We were mingling a lot, and didn't get enough pictures, but we got a few!

All in all, it was an amazing few weeks. There were people that weren't able to come, and we totally understood that. We love everyone in our lives, and feel so lucky to know each and everyone one of them. We can't wait for the baby to come and get to know everyone and love them too! We just can't believe how lucky we are. A special thank you to Angela, AnnMarie, Ashley, Beth, Cindy, Jocelyn, Tiffany, and my mom for organizing our showers. Thank you to everyone in our lives!!!
