We have an amazing friend (Janet Wheeland) who has taken several photos of our family, including our rock-n-roll Christmas photos.
Today we last minute snapped some maternity photos that included balloons and scrabble tiles.
This was before the generous shower that folks at church threw us.
The cards and gifts were thoughtful. Home-sewn burping cloths, a striped bathing suit, an insulated cup for a nursing momma, and treats.
Like homemade brownies
or Janet’s homemade ice cream sandwiches.
I think my favorite part was other moms sharing advice and the awaiting joys of raising a daughter which has so far felt intimidating, but their words were all encouraging.
