Tree's Baby Shower

Sunday, Georgia Anne and I headed to Birmingham for Tree's baby shower and to meet little Isabella for the first time! We had the BEST time! Tree's sister, Veronica, hosted the shower at her beautiful house. For those of you who didn't know, my uncle Russ and his wife Tree, adopted a baby about a week ago. The baby shower was the perfect way to shower Tree and Isabella with all the things a little girl needs, as well as a great way for everyone to meet Isabella! She is the sweetest little baby...she didn't make a peep the entire time we were there. It was such a special day for them. Isabella was baptised at 8:30 mass and then the shower was that afternoon. All of Russ and Tree's closest friends and family were there, as well as the foster mom and her daughter who kept Isabella during the 15 day waiting period before the adoption was legal. As I write this, I have tears streaming down my face because I am so happy for them, and it was such a blessing to see how happy and complete they are as a family now.

When Georgie finally got her hands on little Isabella, she hogged her. She looked at every inch of her, from her eyes, feet, inside her mouth (she had to check and see if she had any teeth). She especially liked her hair, which is as soft as silk. She "petted" her for a long time. When Tori asked her if she could hold her, Georgia replied,"I'm not finished. When I get done, Toe Toe."

I love it! There is no greater picture of God's love than adoption. What a beautiful little girl, and what a beautiful family! Congratulations, Tree and Russ.
