Celebrating baby Camille

Yep. . . baby B #2 has a name. . .

Camille Elaine Blackburn!

(Camille is a name Brandon and I both just really like, no family history there. Elaine is Brandon's moms middle name. Clara's middle name is Anne, which was my biological mother's middle name so we thought it only fitting to pass on the same legacy to our girls and represent both {biological} grandmas.)

This past Saturday 11/23/13 a few friends and family got together to love on Camille and bless her/us with gifts, and eat yummy Mexican food in the process. So thankful for such wonderful family and dear girlfriends! Camille already has a nice stash of diapers, wipes, burp clothes and other essentials!

Here are a few pics. . .

(A few friends had to leave before pics were taken. And a huge thanks to my friend, Wendi, who took these pics, especially since I didn't even think to bring my own camera. Oh and let's not overlook that Wendi had a baby 1.5 weeks ago and STILL came to my baby shower bright eyed and with a genuine smile on her face!)

 Amanda, Wendi, Lindsey and Emily

 Lauren, Kaleena and Aja
Sweet monogramed burp clothes (Thanks, Amanda!)

 Present opening continues. . .

Dark chocolate brownies with dark chocolate candies on top. . . these girls know what I like!

Debbie (Brandon's mom), my mom, Susan (my older sis), Tiffany (my sis in law), Ashley (my slightly younger sis), Me and Clara (Clara looks thrilled to be celebrating, ha!) and Avery (my niece, Susan's daughter)

Such a fun evening! So blessed to have such thoughtful family and friends! Only eight more week to go!!
