Our Baby Shower

Our family planned and hosted the most beautiful baby shower for us last weekend at the Dolphin Bay Resort and Spa in Pismo Beach. We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the love and blessings! We feel so fortunate to have so many amazing friends and family members that have stood with us through the years as we prayed for our little miracle to come. I’m still feeling so overwhelmed with all of the love from last weekend. Dan’s mom planned and arranged all the food and games, and she hand made us a beautiful baby quilt, crocheted a blanket, crib sheets, and burp clothes. My mom and sisters did all the cute decorations and details. My sister made the cute diaper cake and my mom made us the adorable baby deer cake and cupcakes. There was so much heart and love put into everything and I loved it all so much! I’m 35 weeks pregnant today and feeling great. (Huge, but great!) We just got our baby girl’s car seat and stroller travel system a couple days ago, did some baby shopping, and we’re finishing up our baby corner this week. I have all her clothes washed and ready to be put away and organized, we took our baby care basics class, and we’re feeling more ready for our sweet girl to come into the world. Here we go! Let the countdown begin!


32 Weeks Pregnant

I can’t believe we get to meet our baby girl in less than 2 months! We’ve been having fun lately at our prepared child birth classes, all our doctor visits, and ultrasound appointments. We got to see our precious girl a few days ago and we learned she is healthy, has my nose and her Daddy’s lips (from what we can see), and is weighing in at a healthy 4 pounds and 13 ounces. Both Dan and I were 9 pound babies so we wouldn’t be surprised if our baby girl turns out to be the same! We’re getting really excited for our baby shower next weekend. Our family has been planning it for us and we are so eager to see all of our friends, family, and loved ones that have been there for us throughout our journey. Our hearts are so overjoyed and we can’t wait to share our excitement with everyone and celebrate our miracle. Daniel is getting ready to complete our baby corner renovation in our bedroom next week. He already installed a new light fixture and I can’t wait till we get to put the finishing touches on the space. I plan on heading over to my moms house soon to go through all of my old baby clothes. I was one of five girls growing up and my Momma always had us dressed so cute all the time. She has boxes full of clothes that I wore when I was baby, including some special dresses my grandma made for us. It’s going to be so fun going through it all. June 17th will be here before we know it and we can hardly wait! We had so much fun on this maternity shoot with my Daddy –Michael Kinney Photography. We are so thrilled that he could capture this special time in our lives and we absolutely love how they turned out! My mom came out too to assist. I love my family so much 😄❤️ We’re so blessed to be surrounded with so much love and support.
