Can we say Baby Fever.....but not for me. :)

So I think I can officially say I have moved on from the 'wedding phase' and am sitting comfortably in the 'Baby Phase.' Now, let me preface this post by answering the question I always get EVERY TIME I mention babies.

Q: Tonya, when are you going to have one of these.
A: Not yet, we are enjoying our time of being married. We look forward to the day when we will have a little one of our own, but for the record, it won't be any time soon. :)

Anyways, back to babies. This past weekend we hosted a baby shower for my roommate from college, Lori. Lori and I have been friends since Middle School and have grown up together, both in life and spiritually. She is such a special friend and I am so excited for her and her husband Josh. They are having their first daughter at the end of August. Here are some pics from the shower.

Beautiful Lori and her parents

I dont think Lori has gained anywhere but in her belly. Not fair.



Lori and I and Mom and Dad!!


Sarah was in town for the shower too. I got to hang out with her on Friday afternoon at the pool with her son Benjamin. I will post those pics once she sends them to me. Sarah is such a great friend. She is having her second precious little boy in November. Those boys are SO lucky to have her as their Mommy.

Lori has probably seen me at my worst more than anyone I know.



B-E-A-UTIFUL Cake.
Lindsey made this by hand--it looked amazing and tasted even better.



Lindsey also crafted this great Diaper Cake
She is a jack of many trades.







I made a Diaper Wreath for the shower. It turned out pretty cute.
Up close with the bow - I love that the "Lovey" is the center of the bow.

Stacey needed to make a diaper wreath for a baby shower she is throwing
Here we are hard at work...this was only two days before Stacey got engaged


Here is the full picture of my wreath.


A few weeks ago, my sweet friend from college came in town to visit. She, as you may guess, is pregnant and is having her sweet pea in September. Her little one is a surprise, but I am officially guessing that it is a girl. It was so much fun to see her.
We went to this Shakes and Sliders place called Lil Bigs to celebrate my neighbor Kimberly's birthday.
Cute belly shot

In addition to these three pregnant ladies, there are at least 5 others that have informed me they are pregnant or trying. Not to mention a couple have just had their little ones....seriously...its raining babies. :)
I am way behind on my blogging. I have a few other posts I am hoping to get done this week. I am at a interstate tax seminar in San Francisco beginning tomorrow evening, so it should be a nice relaxing week, well until Alex gets intown and has our free time packed with activities. I can't wait. Have a good one!!!
