Pics from the baby shower

Thanks to Heather, first of all, for taking these pictures! I think they turned out great.

It was great to see everyone at my shower. There were friends from college and my singles ward, like Jodi on the far left; my family, sister Elisa, nephew Charlie, sister Cynthia and mom from left to right; and members of my ward like Winnie on the right. I feel so blessed to have such great friends and family.

Friends from previous places I'd worked like Kimmee and Mary on the left and more good friends from the ward Claudia and Kathryn.

Here are my two great friends that threw the shower, Lindsay and Kathryn. Thank you both so much for a wonderful shower! I couldn't have asked for anything more.

Ahhh! Great food! Thanks to everyone who helped provide all the eats! They were wonderful!

Geoff brought Mina by at the end of the shower so everyone could see her. She's asleep in this picture but they got to hear her cry, too when she got hungry! She's my sweet girl and I love her so much.

Mina with family

Gramps feeding Mina. We're grateful for all the help we've had from family.

Jacob loves to kiss her! He'll come up and say "kisses?,"kiss her on the head, then ask again. We have to remind him he has to wash his hands before he touches her, though, so now whenever he sees her he says, "wash hands?" and runs to the bathroom to wash his hands!

Sierra is such a good little helper! She fed Mina while I was eating dinner the other day and it worked out great!

Minas photo shoot

I've tried several times to get Mina dressed up and take pics and I did get some good ones. As you can tell by some of the photos further on, however, she wasn't really in the mood to get all dressed up for photos! This outfit is a preemie outfit, one of the few that fit her the first few weeks.

Elisa found this dress at a garage sale and thought it was a cute doll dress. Then she looked at the label, which said "preemie." It fits Mina just great, though she wasn't very happy when I was taking this picture!

We got this cute hair bow from our neighbor.

I got lucky and caught her smiling. A "gas" smile as Geoff likes to remind me, but a smile none the less!
