NYC Baby Shower

A New York City shower was thrown for Baby van der Meer and me earlier this month. The house was filled with fresh flowers, gifts, virgin mojitos and good friends. Thanks to everyone and all the lovely presents, this little one is ready to enter this world in style! (I am 30 weeks pregnant here).

Wedding/Baby Reception in Holland

We traveled to europe at the end of April to visit family and friends. We spent a majority of our time in Holland and hopped around the country visiting Marike & baby Thijn in Amsterdam, Mark & Hesje in Nederlangbroek, the Petten's in Leidschendam, and of course Oma, Tineke & Erik in Velp. Freddy and Sandy organized a lovely family reception for us while we were there, which was a wonderful way to reconnect with those who joined us at our wedding and to see those who couldn't make it out to Missouri in October. When then headed to London for our friend's wedding and to see our darling niece, Alexandra Apple.

Below are pictures from the family reception in Holland...








28 weeks here

Missouri Baby Shower

In March my dear friend, Christie (Steward) Dawson, threw me a baby shower when I was home in Jefferson City. It was great seeing all of the girls from high school and I was touched by everyone's generosity. I am about 21 weeks pregnant at this time...
