Kuhns' baby shower

Shower at Carmel Christian Church - Given by Mom, Jessie, Rachel and Rebecca
Oct. 28 was ava's shower. We got so many wonderful things and got a chance to celebrate ava's birthday! here are some fun pictures of the double shower with Kelly and I. I just felt so lucky to have so many people there supporting us and ava. We prayed for ava for a year and a half and at the shower I shared how God's promises are true - even when we have to wait.

Both Kelly and I had surgery to get pregnant. In fact, our surgeries were a week apart. We both found out we were pregnant and were a month apart! Kelly is due in December and we are due Jan. 28.

Ava is our prayer and the result of God's love, and Brandon and I are eagerly looking forward to being parents. I feel like I know ava already and although it's hard to put it into words, she was always here with us even when we were praying for a baby. God is so good and so faithful!

Just getting ready for the shower was so much fun. My aunt rita, cindy and grandma yoder came over and helped prepare the food and sharon and christina joined us from michigan. all i can say is that ava is going to get lots of hugs! Let the swooping begin.

baby is getting big!

Brandon and I at our 10-year reunion.

so, baby is now around 1 lb and around 13 inches long. We are around 23 weeks and i feel like i keep growing and growing! Brandon likes to feel ava kicking and he always puts his hand on my belly and has only dad and daughter talks. He's going to be such a good dad! We go in next week to make sure ava is a girl, but i am pretty sure she is! I have been shopping a lot for ava - little girl clothes are just so darn cute that they are my weakness.

We had our 10-year reunion last Saturday and it really went well. It was so nice to see everyone and it was nice to see all of the committee's hard work pay off. We had been planning the reunion for a year so it was a lot of planning and hard work that went into it! Literally everyone said at first how weird it was to see everyone and then it was just like old times.

The leaves also are changing and the colors are so beautiful outside. I told brandon that we need to go to hocking hills to see the colors of the leaves!
