For those of you tiring of looking at baby things, please bear with!  This is the last of it!  –You know, until the little man comes along and we force you to look at pictures of our kid all the time! ;o)

This past Saturday was the day for our Franklin baby shower.  Little Man loaded up on the goods and I had a great time visiting with close friends and family.  Thank you so much for the wonderful shower ladies!!  We love you!

– Mel and Sean

p.s. Thank you Bekah for taking pictures for me! :o)


Shannon’s diaper cake – she made it herself and she was so proud!  You may now ooo and ahhh


I managed to snag these before the camera was taken away from me. :o)




Sean’s grandmother made this for him before he was born and it has now been passed on to the next generation.


Rose, Sonny, and Andy (the kids I used to nanny for) all made special art for the baby’s room.  Rose painted canvasses for him and Sonny and Andy painted pirate ships.  Between that and the shark bath towel, I think the bathroom is officially pirate themed!  Now we have to get on digging out the “throw it in there room” and transforming it into a home for baby things!  We’ve still got time…right?

    and there is the matching baby eating shark towel!!! LOVE IT! Looks like it was a fun shower. Sharks and Pirate Ships = Perfection. I can’t believe the next time I see you he will be here. :) Brad probably won’t even notice there is a baby in the house as long as he gets to spend quality time with Dirtball.

    You look so beautiful in the picture where you’re holding up the quilt. We’ve watched your website daily ever since you did Brandi and Mike’s wedding 1 1/2 years ago and enjoy every minute of it. Congratulations on the new baby boy!

    Hey Becka – isn’t that fun? It’s like wedding cake that’s functional! :o) Mel – I know! Between that and the sharky washcloth you got him, he’s totally set now! And tell Brad not to worry – Dirtball will be in need of love when Little Man gets here. :o) Hey Brenda! Thank you so much! We really enjoyed all of you throughout the whole process of Brandi and Mike’s wedding and it’s so good to hear from you! Hope you’re all doing great!

    The quilt is so sweet! We can’t wait for Georgia to have another friend to play with. The pictures are great.

    I’m so, so sorry that I had to miss it! I sent little man’s gift off to Shannon though, so I could be there in spirit. xoxoxox

    dude, seeing these pics makes me feel like you are me in a different dimension. our baby is 4 months old now, a bit late to make a blog post of it – but i imagine it would have looked almost identical! great shots!
