Last Friday my mom came to town for our baby shower weekend and then Saturday Mr. Banker's parents arrived. It was so amazing for them to finally meet, and it all went really well. Of course it sucks that my father wasn't there, but I guess this is just a fact of life that I will have to come to terms with.
We went to dinner with his parents, my mom, and my grandmother Saturday night and that was very nice. We took them to Ruth's Chris and it occurred to me that I really just don't care about food that much anymore. I didn't care what I ate or where (except that I did not want to go to this all-you-can-eat Brazilian buffet Mr. Banker suggested--for obvious reason). That's a huge change in my life over the last 3 years that I am very thankful for. I don't crave food and I can eat the same thing for days if I need to because it's for nourishment more than enjoyment now.
Our baby shower was Sunday and it was so wonderful. We had so many friends and family there to show their love and support for us and for Xavier. I may be partial, but it was one of the best showers I've been to.

The letters spelling XAVIER behind us were painted for the nursery by Mr. Banker's best friend.
I can't wait to get the letters hung in his room.
