You may remember back to the day we found out we were having a baby girl.
Side note: This theme is even more fitting because Alex and I used to sing "You Are My Sunshine" to one another all the time when we dating. It became a little joke between us and we would buy each other silly things like plastic roses that played the melody of the song. It is so adorable that now it is our song to our little girl!
It was soon gift-opening time and Eleanor and I were absolutely showered with presents. So many cute little girl outfits, important necessities and many amazing homemade gifts! I have no favorites, they are all my favorites, but I am blown away by the generosity of our church friends and the creativity of Julie, Whitney and Shannon! Our baby girl is already so loved and so blessed to be part of an amazing church family and network of support! I am not sure how I could ever do this without them!
Not only did all the ladies from church make it to the shower, but Alex's mom came in from Winston Salem, and then my aunt arrived from South Carolina. I was so surprised she made it and so excited to have so many loved ones around!
