I love babies. I love to celebrate them. Therefore, when I find out someone is expecting, I am sure to check in and see if anyone is planning a baby shower for them yet. If not, I always offer to help in some capacity. Usually, it's a very simple affair with some streamers, balloons, cake and silly games. And of course I love to take lots of pictures.

My favorite part of all was the blessing and prayer that Jessica's mentor, Susie gave. Susie has prayed for and with Jessica since her youth group days and had many very meaningful things to say. I'm so thankful for Jessica and was delighted to see her and her almost-here baby celebrated in such a special way.

|My levi's note of "encouragement" for Jessica and Madalyn during those 2AM feedings. Can't tell whether it says "Jesus loves you too" or "Jesus loves your poo." He is 9 after all. I didn't read this until I was editing pictures. Oops.|
