baby boy mcphee

the moment a child is born, the mother is also born. she never existed before:

last weekend one of my best friends threw me
the most beautiful baby shower.
ah, it was perfect. i loved everything about it.
she nailed the decorations, the presentation, the food, the drink, the party favors...
pretty much everything.
i loved it.
{did i already mention that?}

my mr. mcphee came with my little tiny to capture the event.
they left mid party to take care of some father daughter business.
but i am going to let the photos speak for themselves.
shutterfreek photography did an awesome job
{no surprise there}

{me & jessie}

& might i add that, every time jessie & i hang out or chat on the phone. i usually look like this.
she is an awesome friend.
& when i mean awesome... i mean
totally AWEsome.

{the party tent, & one of my absolute favorite shots}

{decorations & table tops}

{me & limes}

{delicious drink, scrumptious food, & delectable treats}

{gifts: aka baby loot}

{friends & family}

love this candid photo of jessie & my mom about to hug.
my mom looks so happy & relieved that she didn't have to throw me a baby shower.
{wink wink!}

{my beautiful sister & me}

{my family}

these are some of my absolute favorite people.
so grateful to have so much family in farmpit.

sister, little tiny, mom, aunt mimi, grandma, me, & aunt melissa.

meg, me, & tara plus baby ryleigh.

me, flat niece bella, & grams

my all time favorite shot of jess & salony baloney.
yes, jess is that hott.

{cake pop "thank yous": by melody ellis}

yes, cake pops are this delightful.
my favorite flavor of the afternoon...
carrot cake.
so so so yummy!

last but certainly not least,
my little tiny.
she is my best friend.
we do everything together.
i just plain love her.

i feel really spoiled.
jessie went all out for me
& "thank you" is simply not enough.
but thank you.

the woman existed, but the mother, never.
a mother is something absolutely new
