This Saturday, I was able to help host a shower for Jessica and soon to be here "Baby Girl Whitworth." Jessica and her husband, Ben, are good friends of ours that are originally from Birmingham and moved to Jacksonville right around the time that Josh and I were married. We met them in our newlywed class at FBC. Ben completed the same program that Josh is finishing up right now - Master's of Health Administration at UAB. Apparently their enthusiasm for both Birmingham and the program at UAB rubbed off on us - because now here we living in their home town while they stayed in ours.

I was so excited to be a part of this shower - several of Jess's college buddies threw the shower and asked me to help host and helpt to decorate for the shower. Her wonderful Mom offered to let us have the shower at her house and it was a beautiful (and convenient for Jess) place to have it. I really enjoyed doing this for Jessica. Here are a few pictures from the shower this weekend...

My First attempt at a diaper cake - so much fun decorating it for a little girl :)

Clothes line - getting BGW ready for Florida - personal fav: the pink ruffled swim suit :)

Jess with all of her hostesses

Funny side story that Jess shared on Saturday - she and Ben are still deciding on a name and have decided not to share the name until after she is born. One of the names that Ben offered up for consideration - "Sunshine." I think it was Ben's aunt who said - "When did He turn into a hippie?!?!" While Jess did not endorse this name, she explained that Ben was trying to come up with a name that would be "happy."

Jess - Josh and I are so excited for you guys and can't wait to meet BGW. Considering who her parents are - she will surely be a well-loved and "happy" baby. We miss you guys but I am so glad that we got to hang out this weekend!! Much love.
