A Shower for Knox!

On September 17th, several of my sweet friends hosted a beautiful baby shower for Knox!  I had such a great time getting to visit with everyone and playing with all the fun baby stuff Knox now has.  Everyone’s generosity has definitely helped me feel like we’re more prepared to bring a baby home in a few weeks. 

With the hostesses:  Lori, Jacqueline, Whitney, Shara and Rachel. 25.  Shower hostesses

Lori made her famous fruit salad in the watermelon carriage.  3.  Watermelon carriage
I loved this – guests wrote little notes to Knox in a Dr. Seuss book whose main character is also named Knox!  19.  Dr. Seuss Knox book
Everyone also wrote Logan and I messages on diapers to cheer us up when we’re doing those middle of the night diaper changes.  So cute!1.  Diaper notes

This picture is incredibly special to me.  It’s the last picture taken of Joyce before she passed away unexpectedly two days later.  I am so thankful I got to visit with her at the shower.  She was such an amazing lady.  20. Joyce, Lorin and Mamaw 9-17-11
