Baby Shower: Roots & Wings Style!

We call ourselves "Roots and Wings." I know it may sound silly, but these are my high school friends- a group of 11- and we all still stay in touch. We have "wings" because we live all over the country: Chicago, Fort Wayne, Boston, Tennessee, Indianapolis, Michigan, and Alabama, and “roots” because we always get together at least once a year in Fort Wayne to reconnect. Plus, we stay in touch via phone and email all year long, it really is an exceptional group of women and unique that we all still like each other!! :-)
Well, this year, three of us are pregnant…all due within a 2 month window…so we had a super fun “Roots and Wings” shower this past weekend. Megan is due Dec 3rd, I’m due Jan 6th, and Heather is due Jan 30th! It was so great seeing everyone and getting to celebrate together!
The icing on the cake….Jody’s mom is doing so much better! She is out of ICU, sitting all day and even standing for short periods of time, talking clearly and making progress every day! Answered prayers for sure! She is still struggling with phenomena and she is in some pain, plus in the next few weeks they’ll put in a pacemaker to keep her heart in rhythm so this won’t happen again! I know I’m missing specific details, but the bottom line is that Julie is a miracle! Praise God but please keep praying!
We're all having, 6 months ago Jody had her 2nd boy, Eli.
The three sets of blue cute!

Opening Gifts

Super Soft blankets and rattles

The Wee Blocker!! That's right...a little "cup" to guard our poor faces during those boy diaper changes. Machine Washable! Jody has 2 boys and thinks these are essential!

We played the string game...where you guess how big each Mommy to Be is around by cutting a piece of string. Well, Janelle, Angie, and Nicole were a little off...the strings they cut were taller then they are! Come on guys...we're not THAT big!

Angie's guess was so overly big, we all fit into her string. Yikes.
