I'm so lucky and blessed by all the amazing people supporting Mark and I in expanding our family. I can't even believe that in a few short months I will be a mom to two perfect children. I feel so lucky even though I wish with all my heart Jaxon was there physically to celebrate with us. We added some personal touches to incorporate him into the shower and I know as he watched us celebrate he was beaming with pride. I felt him there all day and as I looked around he made me know he is always with me. 

We had one white balloon for him (which we let go up to heaven for him after the shower) we also had a picture of him in his big brother shirt (we put the picture frame in Landrees nursery after the shower which is where it will stay), and lastly we had candles lit around his picture. We put all these things on the gift/cake table with a special gift from Jax to Landree, a book all about angels. If you are looking for the perfect book to explain to your younger children about their sibling in heaven it is the perfect book! we personalized it on put me in the story.

I had a really clear idea of what I wanted my shower to look like and it turned out perfectly. Shout out to my sister for the beautiful sign she made and also the small details of the personalized place settings. Everyone got a flower crown to wear and a little mason jar of chocolates to take home with them. It was such a bittersweet day but I know that I can choose joy even when things are super hard emotionally for me. I always saw Jax smile even when he was hurting so I try and live my life the same. 

My shower theme was a boho floral theme. I wanted it to be super feminine and girly with little touches of her nursery too. I feel like with each baby I have I get this picture in my mind of what their soul will be like and every time I imagine Landree I can only picture a little girl who's spirit is filled with freedom and love and joy for life. And her baby shower was not only celebrating her life but all the sunshine and flowers she will add to ours :) 

thanks for stopping by!
