I am overwhelmed by the generosity of my family and friends. Our basement is literally covered in baby gifts; everything from the swing and bouncer to the pack n’ play, stroller and high chair. We have towels, washcloths, bibs and clothes. Our 4runner was so loaded down driving home yesterday that we literally could not see out of our back window. We had stuff piled all the way to the ceiling and up to the front seats.

I have been sitting here for ten minutes trying to come up with the words to describe how thankful I am, not just for the gifts, but for the outpouring of love and support they showed Aaron and I this weekend. It really hit home to me how much our family and friends are looking forward to this baby, just as much as we are. They are thinking and praying for him daily, which means more to me than any gift or cute outfit.

    I remember how overwhelming it was when I attended my first baby shower(s). Family and friends are awesome, and it’s so exciting and comforting to know that other people love and care about you and are totally excited about welcoming your baby, too! It meant so much to me to have friends and family walk that journey with hubs and I, and now we’re so lucky to share the fun we have with our 1-yr. old little one with all of them!
