Pretty in Pink!

Two weeks in between posts....we're getting better! :)
I'm so lucky that my sweet sisters and girlfriends wanted to make sure that Kendall was set with some ruffles and pink before her big birthday on Thursday! Otherwise, our little girl would've been swaddled in baseball blankets and sucking on blue pacifiers! :) They threw me the most adorable pink pajama party complete with pink feather boas for each guest, a princess Kendall cake that left me speechless, and more girl clothes than we could've ever hoped for! Unless you've been 9 mo. pregnant, you can't understand how amazing it was to have a baby shower where it was acceptable to wear your pj's!! Check out some of the pics....
All the adorable hostess'

Little blurry....but still so cute! April found all the Disney "baby" princesses. Kendall will be in heaven when she's old enough to play with them!

Natalie's fireplace was decorated with Kendall's initials (on glitter paper :)) and 4 of the most adorable outfits I've ever seen!

Joel and I stayed up so late that night going back through everything and oohhhing and awwing over all the fun gifts. Ok, so I did all the ohhing and awwing, but Joel did stay up late. :) Thank you to my sweet friends and family who were able to celebrate Kendall at the pj party!

Here are some pictures of Kendall's nursery!
The little sign to the left of the window says..."Child of God, Child of Mine"


All her furniture, except the crib, was mine growing up...so that feels really special! Mom worked really hard to make the fabric covered stool for her vanity.

We're definitely girlified and ready to welcome our daughter into the world on Thursday at 7:30 am! 5 more days!! Yikes! Ok, I realize that it's really 6 days, but it's my blog and I get to count the way I want. Today is almost over, so you can't count Friday. Thursday is the big day, so you can't count it either. See how that works? 5 more days. My goal is to get one more post on before then....but you know how that goes! If not, Joel will be on at the end of the week with pictures of our baby! Love you all!

Can I say that I CANNOT WAIT for my little Kendall to get here?!?! It's been SUCH a long wait for a little girl... And I TOTALLY get the countdown theory... Based on that, you only have 3 days left - you can't count today or Thursday, so 3 days... yeah!! You know I'll be there ready to kiss her face, pinch her cheeks and put her bows, ruffles, tights and stilettos on! :-) Love you guys!

What great girlfriends! You are so lucky to have them! I'm so excited for you all and will be thinking about you as the week progresses! I need to head up to the clinic to drop off a gift. If I don't get it up there before Thursday, I'll try to mail it to you! Good luck...can't wait to meet sweet Kendall! Her nursery is absolutely adorable:)

Camden loves to smile, laugh, and be a busy boy. Kendall has her daddy right where she wants him!!
