nerdy excited.

This weekend my lovely sisters from church threw a party to welcome our baby girl to the world!

What a blessing it was for our family! I was so incredibly excited. Nerdy excited. I had to laugh when I looked through the pictures from the shower and realized that, along with nursing a baby in front of everyone, I'd made total goober faces while I was opening gifts.

Good thing she was adorable enough for the both of us. Have I bragged lately about how beautiful she is?

I love having a community of women who love me. My mom, auntie, and sisters, and the wonderful friends in the women's organization that I so treasure; The Relief Society. These women give of themselves so willingly. I hope to follow their sweet examples and pay it forward through my life to those women who need me.

At the next baby shower I'll be glad to be behind the camera, witnessing such nerdy excitement on the face of another lady.

I don't think you look nerdy, you look beautiful and excited and so happy! I know the joy you feel. I have two boys and then a girl and I felt that same exuberant joy to have a daughter.

What a beautiful thing to have women come and shower you with love. And what a beautiful baby girl!

I'm so so happy you got your sweet little girl. She is beautiful!! I bet you named her something so sweet too! and I knew I loved you! We had our sweet baby girls the exact same day (I think) I just had Navy on October 6th. They must have been good friends in Heaven.
