"No one will ever know the strength of my love for you. After all, you are the only one who knows what my hearts sounds like from the inside."
Wow, what an adventure this first month and a half have been. I can't believe it's already been a month and a half! Clearly I've been busy since I'm just now getting around to posting Jovi's newborn photos! My heart has never been so full and I have never been more happy/EXHAUSTED. Mama's please tell me this gets easier!? A friend of mine recently told me that the first couple months with a newborn you are in survival mode and I couldn't agree more. My day revolves around her eating, making sure she's happy and trying to get her to take a snooze! Mainly, so I can get some rest too haha. When she finally does take a nap I always find myself going through my camera roll and looking at pictures of her because I miss her! Being a mommy may be hard work but when she's snuggled up in my arms and gives me a cute little smile it's all soooo worth it! Anyways, these photos are incredibly special to me and I will cherish them forever! I'm crazy in love with my little family and could not be more grateful!

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star Oh How Very Loved You Are Baby Abbott!
Our baby girl was showered with SO much love from all of our closest friends and family over the weekend! My mom, mother in law and a couple of my best friends came together and threw us the most perfect party to celebrate the little love in my belly! The decor was absolutely adorable and the party was so much fun! We decided to have a co-ed shower because it's not very often that we can get all of the people dearest to us in one place. Having a co-ed shower made playing games a blast as well!
The majority of my close friends all traveled to be there and it meant the world to me. I cannot believe that baby girl will be here in less than 2 months! I am so ready to meet her and start my journey as her mommy. I also can't wait for my heart to melt when I see her in her daddy's arms! The best is yet to come!
Sadly, the dress I wore is sold out on Forever 21. But, good news! Below I linked a few other pretty lace and white dresses that are just as cute! There are some maternity and non maternity options! I also included the low nude heel I wore as well as a similar moon necklace to the one I wore. Just click on an image and you will be directed to the site where you can purchase!
Most of the decor was crafted by one of my best friends Amanda! She made the adorable "Thank Heaven For Baby Girls" sign behind the dessert table, the photo backdrop that said "Oh Baby", she wrote with her perfect calligraphy hand writing on the white mirror as well as the chalk board and she made the 'Baby Abbott" sign and strung images from our maternity shoot! She is so talented! If you live in the Las Vegas area and need someone to plan your wedding or special event email her at Amanda@becauseofdesign.com!
The Mom-Osa Bar sign is from Etsy and the floral welcome sign is from Zazzle.com! Both are linked below!
