Noah's Ark Themed Baby Shower | Staunton, Virginia | Mae's Baby Shower

You may have first noticed it in this post with our family portraits, but my family is growing a lot this year! Not only do I have a precious two-year-old niece, but my brother and his wife will be adding a nephew this fall just one month before my sister is adding her own little pretty lady to the mix! Being an aunt is one of the most wonderful things in the world, and I can't wait to share the love among a few more little ones.

A couple weeks ago, we got to celebrate my sister and the momma-to-be at an adorable Noah's Ark themed baby shower. I can't take credit for a lot of it - our wonderful sister-in-law planned out the decorative details, and my sister and mom helped with food and bringing the necessary supplies to make the day happen. We passed advice on that we have learned, played games (and even made the guys participate!), and watched Mae open gifts for this little girl who is already so dearly loved.

It truly hit me for the first time that my sister is having a baby when I visited her house and opened the closet, only to be greeted by the most adorable row of hangers filled with dresses, ruffled pants, and all kinds of pretty pink things. I'm so thankful for my family and the love we share, and I know beyond the shadow of a doubt that when we add our own little one we will be beyond blessed by the love given to us.

Congratulations, Mae (and Cory)! I love you so much and can't wait to meet little Baby Beasley!

I can never decide...do we look alike or not?! Either way, we are the best of sisters and friends!
