Miscellaneous Follow-Up

Molly: Btw we have the same bathtub but dont like it. That tub came with a mesh holder. Did the one you have not have the mesh holder?

Molly: what are yo going to do with all that stuff, are you going to organize it? I plan on spending my next couple days/weeks going through stuff. We got duplicates of some stuff, double, triple, quadruple some items. Lots of size 0-3 months of clothes and socks. Like 25 newborn knit hats, like 20 wash clothes, etc. So I will be spending time going through it all, deciding what to keep, what to exchange for a bigger size, what to exchange for something else needed, etc. So when its all said and done, yes it will all be organized. Hopefully sooner than later so my nursery can be complete and I can sit back and wait on my little Miracle to arrive.

Rae: DON'T open all that stuff and wash it all. No, wasn't planning on doing that. Will only wash bare minimum what is needed now and wash the other items as the time comes when its time to use it. She has loads and loads of clothes and I'm sure no way possible that it will all be used before she out grows it all. I plan on exchanging some of the clothes out for bigger sizes/different seasons too.

Alicia: isn't it amazing how generous people are. It is. I am still truly amazed. Every time I walk into the nursery and see all this stuff, I am just so thankful!

So Blessed....

We feel so blessed. Never in our wildest dreams did we think that people would really understand our journey and celebrate our journey the way it has been. After all the struggles, all the tears, all the disappointments, the losses, I mean through it all you learn that some people will never get it, will never understand. But maybe just maybe my struggles, my story, my lessons learned over the years has touched some and really got into their spirit. Well now they may think twice about saying something hurtful to someone still trying, or giving advice that really is not useful or just saying comments that sting to the core when you’ve been trying for so long and have experienced losses along the way.

Anyway, I’m rambling. I’m just in awe of the generosity of others. After having four showers I had to take pictures, to remember the selflessness of others, and the generosity of others and the wiliness of others to celebrate in this Miracle of life with us.

From family to friends to co-workers we are so thankful.

Even my FF’s who sent lovely gifts (you know who you are) would bring tears to my eyes as I opened your gifts. I thank you so much, from the bottom of my heart, we are so thankful!

This was her closet before the showers. I think I bought maybe 4 or 5 outfits and the shoes. But my girlfriend sent me the rest of the clothes:

More Pics - DH's Surprise Shower at Work 10-7-09

These are from the camera man that was taking pics during the shower. The others were just a couple of shots that I took.

Some pics are blurry, but you can still see DH's shocked faced through the blurry pics. Too funny!!!
