37 weeks.. where in the heck did time go???? I cant believe within the next few weeks we are going to have our little boy in my arms.

A lot has happened in the last few weeks and I am going to try my best to catch up with everything this week.

Let's start off with our baby shower... My amazing Mother in Law hosted the shower with the help of my sister, and I helped with all the decor and set up. My Mother in Law is such a sweet, amazing, caring, humble mother that I am over the moon to have her in our lives.

The shower took place at her house on a Sunday afternoon, we wanted to keep the nautical theme to match his nursery.

Here are a few pictures of the details...

My Dad's advice -

I had an amazing time and we received almost everything we needed! This is one lucky little boy.

I'm 37w 2days today and as of yesterday am 2 centimeters dilated.
