Ryder’s baby shower was a day that I had dreamed about for a long time. Ever since Matt and I decided that we were going to start trying, I pictured the day when I would have a big belly, growing this life that would soon enter our world, leaving us completely perplexed by how we lived without him. I couldn’t wait for all of our family and friends to be together celebrating the little miracle that is our son.
And I have to be honest, the day was even better than I could have imagined. My sister and my mom planned out the entire day, not missing a single detail. Thinking through games, food, decor, and my sister even compiled a video sharing memories from our childhood about why Matt and I will make great parents (cue the waterworks!). Even my best friends from college were able to come out to Phoenix and celebrate with us. I won’t go on and on (because of course I could) but I wanted to share a few pictures of our special day with you.
You are so loved baby Ryder. They say that it takes a village to raise a child, and I am so grateful for the army behind Matt, Ryder and I providing their support.
