"Shoot Me" ~ 25/52 Photos of Me (baby shower)


Baby Update:
Emma Lynn has arrived!
Date: May 22, 2010
Weight: 8 lbs. 4 oz.
Time: 4:22 a.m.
Length: not sure (sorry about that)

Mom and baby are doing wonderfully! Thank you for praying. I am looking forward to meeting her sweet baby self soon. I'll take pictures and post them after I do.


A couple of weeks ago, I went to a baby shower for a special friend.
She is expecting a precious little girl named Emma. Her middle name remains a mystery, but some things just need to be kept quiet until the baby arrives. I can't wait to know her full name.

Isn't Jamie a beautiful mama? Liz hosted the shower at her home. It was lovely.


Jamie with her twin sister and mom.

Sarah and Natalie helped to plan the shower with Lizzy.

Inside those packages were some of the most adorable baby girl outfits you've ever seen.

These little girlies loved seeing all of the cute little clothes and baby things. They were oohing and ahhing the whole way through.

Those snacks look good enough to eat right now.

Our church will have 3 new little ones before too long.

Missy & Christina

More friends to share the joy

Sarah prayed a blessing over Jamie & Emma and showered her with words of affirmation.

I love this photo of these pretty ladies!

Dianne & I

For the record, Jamie is due on this very day.
As I was typing this post, I texted her to ask how she is doing and feeling.
She is more than ready to meet her babe.

Lord, be with Jamie as she soon will go into labor. Give her the strength to endure it and Lord we thank you for the beautiful life you are about to bless her and her husband with. In Jesus' name, Amen.

I felt the need to pray.

Sarah, Kim, and baby Kaleah

I posted this a couple of weeks ago, but wanted it in this post for the book I'll have made of this blog.

The silly one has to be included, too.

Jamie, I love you and I can't wait to meet Emma.

Carin hosts "Shoot Me" over at Forever in Blue Jeans. It is a weekly meme designed to get Mom in the picture. So often we are the ones taking all of the photos and not being in any.

I can't read this post. The white on the yellow isn't showing up!

fullertribe said...

Yeah Yellow on my side. But I just tried to print it and it printed so that I could read it. Very nice post. I miss all of you guys so much. We love our church and the direction that God has given us being at the new church but it's more older people than younger ones.

I just love a baby shower, especially for a girl : ) Boys clothes are adorable too but I love to buy for baby girls. We are back into the wedding scene..two this summer/fall so far...everybody's growing up and now it's time for our friends kids to marry. I love weddings and showers both.

Praying for a safe and speedy delivery!

Carol,

Now this is truly a beautiful baby shower. A Baby to be being showered with blessings from prayers from family and friends and God above. Can't think of a better way to welcome Emma!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

How is your friend doing now? How's baby Emma? My friend just gave birth, too, three days ago. I know the feeling of seeing a friend turn to a mother--wonderful!

Thanks for the fun photos! I love the shot of your three preggy friends. I feel like eating the cake too! The Oooing and Aaahing of girls made me smile as well! Oh, words are not enough for this comment. LOL.

Thanks for sharing!

Here's my Thursday Shoot. \(^^)/

Carol,

Please help me spread the word of a sister in Christ who so desperately needs help with a limited amount of time left.
