A Baby Birthday

I turned 29 on Septemeber 17. It was a wonderful day (despite my constant morning sickness)! I woke up to my gifts from Michael: a beautiful glass bead for my Pandora bracelet and the sweetest baby clothes I've ever seen! That sweet man went by himself to BabiesRUs to get "I love Mommy" outfits and our child's first Sox gear. Obviously, I cried.  (Somehow the Pandora didn't get photographed.)

I spent the remainder of the day on the couch waiting for my family to come over. Courtney made the three-hour trek home from school for the occassion which was a gift in itself. Mom brought everything we needed for dinner and dessert. Becky and Randy brought Finn (these days, that's all I really want them to bring anyway!).

Birthday gifts from the family followed the baby theme as well. Courtney gave Michael and me individual gifts, but also a Notre Dame jersey onesie for our future Irish football fan and an AU shirt. 

Mom and Dad got me the cutest maternity shirts, a BeBand, and my favorite organic oatmeal and cookies (things I can actually stomach these days). 

Becky and Randy put together a Pregnancy Survival Kit that included: saltines, 7Up, toxic-free nailpolish, belly lotion, foot cream, chick flicks, the most recent issue of Fit Pregnancy, a scented candle, and adorable onesies for our little one!

  1. What a great birthday! I really liked my BeBand but NOTHING beats maternity jeans. I still wear mine once in awhile because they are so awesome :) This baby is so loved already!
