Samantha’s Baby Shower | Hendersonville, TN Photographer

When Steve and I got married back in 2011, almost none of our friends were married and/or had kids.  It’s been so fun to watch relationships grow from dating to engaged, then married.  And now, we have the pleasure of watching our friends have kids of their own!  It’s about time, you guys!  Haha!  Last weekend I attended a baby shower for my friend Samantha, and was asked by the host and my dear friend, Jenni, to take some photos while I was there.  I normally don’t photograph parties and events, but since it was for a friend, I made an exception.

The shower was early in the day, so we were provided with an amazing brunch spread!  Even though I’m in the middle of a 21 Day Fix program, I still splurged a little and had one of the delicious chocolate frosted donuts.  Shh, don’t tell anyone!

We also played a baby shower game where everyone wears a clothespin and is instructed not to say the word “baby.”  If you catch someone saying it, you get to take their pin.  As you can see from the bottom of this post, I won the game by taking 8 pins!  Haha!  I’m so competitive when it comes to baby shower games.

My friend, Jenni, did such an amazing job hosting the shower at her beautiful home.  All the decorations were so adorable, and the food was delicious!  Her co-host, Darilynn, unfortunately had to stay home sick , so we made sure to Facetime her so she could see how everything turned out.  It certainly was a great time with an amazing group of ladies!  Congratulations on your little baby boy, Samantha!

Our Family is Growing!

It’s true!  I’m almost 12 weeks pregnant with our second child!  This pregnancy has not been an easy one.  I actually ended up in the hospital yesterday from dehydration.  6 hours and 2 bags of IV fluids later, I was feeling much better, and was able to keep down my dinner.  The reason it took so long is because my veins were so flat from being dehydrated that the fluids had trouble flowing through my IV.  (Well, that and the fact that I had to wait 2 hours in the waiting room for a bed to open up.)  I was put on a new medication and will hopefully turn a corner soon.

This baby is due January 21st, and we’ve already had our first doctor’s appointment and seen our little peanut via ultrasound.  At first I was positive this baby would be another boy, but since I’ve been SO sick this time around (much more than I was with Grayson), now I’m wondering if this one is a girl.  I guess only time will tell!

Here’s a couple pictures of our little munchkin.

We’re going to try to find out the gender around 15 weeks via elective ultrasound.  But if we can’t tell then, we’ll have to wait until our anatomy scan at 20 weeks.  If you could spare some prayers, please pray that I will have some relief from this morning (all day) sickness soon!
