Justin and I managed to squeeze in a little beach time while we were in NC on vacation.
I spent most of my time under the umbrella, hiding from the sun.Just look at that big boy under my swimsuit! Next year I'll be spending my time at the beach saying, "No Garrett! We don't eat the sand!!"
My sister, Mindy, hosted the most wonderful baby shower for me at her lovely home while Justin and I were in NC earlier this June. She went above and beyond to make me feel loved and special. So many people came with gifts and well wishes for our baby. I have never felt so spoiled in my life!
This is the diaper cake Mindy made for me. It was trimmed with all these little goodies for baby Garrett. I cried when I walked into the kitchen and saw it. It was just too cute!!
My mother-in-law Mrs. Marilyn, me, sister-in-law Sierra, and sister-in-law Jamie
Mindy, my cousin Mandy, and me
We were given so many great gifts! It was a miracle we were able to get it all packed up in our vehicle to make the long drive back to Georgia.

After months of hard work, the nursery is now complete. My heart swells and my arms ache to hold our baby every time I walk into his room. From the moment I found out we were expecting a boy, I knew I wanted his room to reflect his daddy's love for the Carolina Tarheels. Me, being the southern girl that I am, made sure to add his monogrammed name and initials to every square inch of the room...Garrett Mitchell Harrison.
I covered his lampshade with the same material as the pillow Grandma LaVerne and Aunt Mindy made for him.
Justin always refers to Garrett as "Big G" so I had it embroidered on this itty bitty pillow I made for him.
