apple of their eye


my beautiful sister amy and her two guys are expecting a little baby boy come early decemeber. a christmas baby!
amy and i had always talked about wanting to be pregnant together...or to have babies close in age who could get into trouble and mischief together like we did. so this little fella is a real treat!
(and amy and i got to be woefully pregnant together for a few months)

sunday we all gathered up together to celebrate amy and nate and their austin and baby on the way. 
there is something really amazing about sharing a meal with a community of people that love you the most...about celebrating life in all its richness and fullness and lovely surprises.

plus there were whoopie pies and rootbeer floats...

i cant tell you how excited i am for amy...how excited all us girls are!
this little guy is loved and loved already. and there's nothing quite as special as getting to be an aunt...getting to see your sisters as mamas and watching your babies grow up together. 

every bit is a gift...

  4. I spy Charlie Harper art!! I love this so much! Have you heard of BabyList?(babyli.st), It awesome- in short its a baby registry from any store-Anyway, I just started working with them on launching a blog and I would LOVE to feature this baby shower. What are your thoughts? Do you have more pictures you could share. I truly think this is the most darling non-cheesy baby shower I have seen all year! Sorry, I should have just emailed you all this but I am sooo excited about it. :)

  7. First of all I have to second the comment about how alike you and Amy look. More than once I've seen a pic of her on your blog and my first thought is- "Hmm, something is different about Katie today" and then I realize it isn't you at all!

    This looks like a really lovely event! I definitely spy your party planning aesthetic (paper straws! pumpkins!) I'm curious about those invitations- did you or a friend design them? How were they printed? I really like the look.

    Also wanted to ask you if you are familiar with the book "The Rhythm of Family" by Amanda Blake Soule & Stephen Soule. I just recently checked it out of the library and it has such a nice vibe to it that really reminded me of your blog posts in terms of emphasis on nature and the seasons, and the slow, little moments. It has lots of cool projects in it too, plus lots of lovely photos. So, if you don't know it-- you may want to pick it up!
