Chelsey's Baby Shower

On March 1st, we celebrated both baby Corabelle on the way and Big Reed's birthday. I didn't take any birthday pictures for some reason, but I did get a lot of good ones at the shower!

The shower was held at Lake Forest Country Club in Hudson in one of their beautiful, open rooms. Laura had the most beautiful center pieces for the tables, one of which is now in our dining room!

The lunch was excellent and Halley ordered some great cupcakes from Main Street Cupcakes.

Halley was also in charge of keeping track of gifts as Chelsey opened:

How cute is this blanket?

This is part of my gift, I got the same outfit for our baby so they can be little twins!

Mom and Dad to be!

This was back at Reed and Laura's house after the shower, haha! 

And a (blurry) group picture of the ladies. 

Happy to be a Stith lady (and so is baby!)  :)

Heron Workshop

Last Saturday, we had the unique opportunity of going to a metal sculpture welding workshop in Mt. Vernon. Big thanks to Reed and Laura because it was such a great experience! It was a great time with family and definitely a day to remember. We made metal heron sculptures for the yard and loved how they turned out!

RJ absolutely loved welding! Well, he loved the bending and cutting too. I liked the bending and cutting but was a little too nervous to try to the welding. 

Here's the two of us with our finished product: 

And the whole gang, including our instructors:

It was such a great day and the hosts were wonderful. The workshop even included a really delicious lunch which was an added bonus. Especially with two pregnant family members!

Thanks again, Reed and Laura!

A Growing Baby!

So I thought it would be fun to show a series of pictures documenting the growth of our baby and my belly! 

This one was taken around September 15th, a day before I took the pregnancy test! I've almost forgotten what it's like to have a waist ;)

I really didn't start showing until around 18 weeks. Our doctor had told us that she thought I would take awhile to start showing because of the placement of the placenta. 

I've been lucky and so far it's been a really smooth and easy pregnancy. Keep growing, baby girl!
