Welcome Rylee Brooke Banta!

Allow me to introduce you to Miss Rylee Brooke Banta. She is adorable!

She was born yesterday at 10:47am and weighed 6 lbs and 13 oz. She is 20.25" long and the cutest little girl I've ever seen! Proud parents Chris and Aimee are doing fine.

Sorry the pictures are so grainy, we were playing with my camera the other day and we must have accidentally changed some setting.

Nashville Shower

There's not a lot of time to write, but here are some pictures from my baby shower last weekend in Nashville. It was a lot of fun! It was so good to see family and friends that I don't get to see a lot.

The always adorable, Annie Farrar

Lovely hostesses

The spread

Delicious cake

The fabulous Courtney Goodman

Mama- and daddy-to-be!

I wish that that floating baby on the right there was a liiiiiiittle chubbier because if he really was that skinny, I would not look like this:

Oh Sweet Baby

If you decided to be born today, I'm not so sure you'd be happy with what you'd see when you arrived home. This is what you would have awaiting you on your way to your new nursery:

First, I would take you up these stairs.....

Keep going.....

Wait for it.....

Wait for it......

And BOOM!!

This is the mess that would greet you at the top. This, folks, this is what I have been working on for the past few months.

A look to the left....

And...then the right....


And this is a sorted, trimmed down, organized version of the mess. You should've seen it before. It took over our whole upstairs loft. My brother and sister-in-law have three boys and kindly donated lots of fun items to the newest little Patterson addition. It's taken me a little, teeny while to go through it all. It's been fun though to look at all the cute clothes our little boy will be sportin'.

And sweet baby, here are a few shots of your new nursery.

Please don't come today, or anytime soon. We're not quite ready!
