We scheduled a 4D sonogram for Thursday night so Allison, Mom and Dad could come see Payton. She had other plans and was being quite stubborn and kept her hand and arm in front of her face, so we didn't get very good pictures. Lane keeps saying "Stubborn like her Momma".... who me???
Stork Vision was nice enough to bring us back on Saturday to see if she would cooperate. Nonnie came up for the shower so she was able to come see the live action with everyone else! Payton is pretty squished in there and it scares me to think of where she'll go as she grows and gets closer to delivery. If you look closely, you can see Miss Payton in all her glory. It'll be interesting to compare these photos once she's here!
I think she looks like an angel here... complete with a set of wings!
Today was FABULOUS! My sister and Elaine threw an amazing shower for me and Miss Payton. I'm so amazed at the generosity of everyone. Lane and I are truly blessed with incredible friends and family.
Lane and several of the husbands with kiddos in tow stayed at our house and had a fish fry while the girls were at Elaine's having a fabulous brunch. Here are some pics of the food set up... there's no way anyone went hungry ;)
Cupcakes with dots, stripes and P's; diaper cake and chocolate covered strawberries
Several weeks ago I asked Lane if we could have a named picked out by the last weekend in June.... It was for purely selfish reasons since Mom and I were going to First Monday and I wanted to be able to embroider things if I found them. Surprisingly, Lane said yes and that it was time to name her anyway! I kept suggesting names and Lane kept shooting them down. We had one name that we always came back to, but Lane was worried we'd find something better. After going through what felt like a million names, I told Lane there was nothing wrong with the going with the first name since we always came back to it. After some "marinating" on it, he agreed. Payton Elizabeth will be here soon!!! We both think it's great to be able to call her by name instead of Baby C or Baby Girl.
