Baby Showers and Blessings

Weinzapfel/Mayer Baby Shower

Aunt Kate's Masterpiece! :)
Sophie Rose-- All smiles!

The Weinzapfel/Mayer family shower was so much fun, as always! The only thing that I regret is not taking the time to snap a picture with Janet, Laura, and Kate because I know how hard they worked to put everything together for the day... The food was delicious, as always!! The Weinzapfels and the Mayers are both families who embrace you with their whole heart, and it was so nice to see everyone! 
Allen's sister, Kate made the cake for the shower, which is not only so pretty, but it was soooo sooo yummy!! Thanks Aunt Katie! Brynn is so lucky to have an aunt like you!
For those that may not recognize Miss Sophie Rose (because she is getting so big!), this is our beautiful, smiley, happy, cuddly niece... And Brynn's future BFF! Isn't she just adorable? And she is just as much fun as her Mommy and Daddy! A big thanks to Laura for everything she has done to help us prepare for Brynn's arrival! :) We love you guys!

Andrew and Amanda's Home
The Wilson/Alsop shower was at Andrew and Amanda's house. Everything was so beautiful! It was the picture-perfect shower! :) Jenna, Amanda, and my mom are all the perfect hostesses, and I know they put a lot of effort into all the details-- mostly because they were able to keep me from sneaking a peak at things before the shower! Haha! That in itself takes a LOT of effort!

Aunt Em's Little Helper-- The Miles Man!
After he finished helping me, he helped Grandma a little... And earned some sweet kisses!

But it doesn't stop there... They put together a Blessing Tree and even a little hair bow holder! I cannot express how touched I was by all of the little personal gifts for Brynn! I love you guys so much! She is truly blessed to have aunts like you, and I am blessed to have you as my sisters! :)
Brynn's Bow Holder-- So Adorable!
The Blessing Tree
Thanks to everyone for all of your beautiful blessings for Baby Brynn!
Miles decided to try out some of Brynn's bows!
Big Miles Smiles!
Miles helped me open a special gift sent from Annapolis!! I was so happy that even though she couldn't be there physically, she was there in spirit! We love you Auntie Roz!

We love you, Auntie Roz!
(Sorry for the awkward expression-- I think I was mid-sentence when they snapped this photo)

P.S. Thanks Aunt Anita for taking all the pictures during the shower!! I wish I could have remembered to snap a photo with you too!! Love you so much! 

Well, I have a lot to get done in the next few weeks... First on the list is a little laundry! I'm so excited to wash all of her little onesies and blankets! 

Only 8 more weeks... And less than 60 days!! Wow!

God Bless,
The Weinzapfels

The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make His face shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn His face toward you and give you peace.
Numbers 6:24-26
