Oh Baby!!

On Saturday, Janell drove down from Rockford, and we made our way to Heather's baby shower in Springfield. It was another beautiful day for a drive, and Heather got so many great gifts!!

An obvious gift from Janell!

The ISU Girls - me, Janell, Heather, and Heather (also due in January)

Grandma (Heather's mom) and Heather
Heather "practicing" with baby Hudson (6.5 months old)

They did not find out the sex of the baby so that will be a complete surprise, and I haven't heard anything about names...guess we'll have to wait and see. She is due January 6th.

I'm sure some of you are wondering so I'll just put this here. I never would have missed Heather's shower even though she told me it was okay if I didn't want to come. She has been such a great friend, and I know how hard it was for her to tell me that she was expecting just shortly after we found out we had to wait another month to do our first IUI. Heather has been completely understanding and supportive of our situation, so there was no way I wasn't going to attend her shower. Now, I'm not going to lie and say it was easy. I was feeling pretty good about everything, until I was asked if we had kids, the conversation was completely about children, and Heather was about half way through her gift opening. BUT, I kept it together and know that my time will come and I am excited for her and Jim!

I love that little onsie! So cute. You are so awesome to go to her shower. I'm sure it had to be really hard. You are a strong women and a great friend. Still praying for you.

I really, truly feel for Janell after Tuesday LOL :).

Great to see you last weekend!
