Over the last couple of months, Ricky and I were the lucky recipients of 2 awesome baby showers. The 1st was in March in Winston-Salem and thrown by his family. It was so nice spending time with family and NC friends and we were truly showered with love, gifts and yummy food. And check out the cute centerpiece my MIL made--so creative!

I am NOT crafty/creative at all, so I'm always impressed by those who are. Basically she just took a branch off of a tree from her backyard, painted it silver and then attached ribbons and little baby socks to it. So smart. I never would have thought of it; like I said, sooooo not crafty!

In mid-April, close friends threw us a shower in Chicago. Not only did we have some of our favorite Chicago folks here, but my mom, aunt and BFF all came from TX for the festivities. It was another great day of love, cute little baby things and delish treats!

Our friends truly went all out on the food and the piece de resistance? The cake with animals inspired by the artwork in the nursery! How cool is that! Cake Girls made our cake and it was beautiful and delicious! I have watched the Cake Girls win competitions on the Food Network so I was excited to try one of their creations. I was NOT disappointed.

And as proof of all of the recent spoiling, check out Little Ricky's closet and drawers. Gosh, what will the poor child wear????

So as you can see, Little Ricky, Ricky and I have been completely and thoroughly spoiled.

And we have loved every second of it! What great friends and family we have; I can't wait for Little Ricky to meet all of them!

Love the cake! And Sabrina's closet looks pretty much like Little Ricky's. I'm actually at the point where I'm sick of getting gifts. I know, sick huh! Can't wait for your big day!
