Okay, so I have to start off by saying, thank you. I was feeling down yesterday and...well...a little fat. And all of my blog peeps sent me messages that honestly made me cry happy tears and also laugh hysterically. My friend, Holly, called me last night after reading my blog. She goes to my doctor's office. She always makes me laugh. At one point in the conversation she said, "fat is back!" (LOL) I followed with, "yeah, fat is the new black!" My new motto. (and for the record, we weren't talking about size, we were talking about nutrition...good and bad fat:) I feel better today and after reading your comments, I have decided to let them weigh me each month, but I'm not going to let them tell me how much I've gained. I think that will be best for me. I want to enjoy every minute of this pregnancy, including my growing belly! I seem to embrace it until the dreaded doctor's appointment and then I panic. So thanks for the pick-me-up, girls!!
Speaking of pick-me-ups. I received a package in the mail from my friend, Shannon. She sent little miss A these cute bloomers and onesie! Aren't they sweet!? One set of bloomers has her initials, the other has her name, and the onesie has her first initial. :) I love anything personalized. Shannon, thank you so much for thinking of our baby girl!
Since my first baby shower is this Saturday, I wanted freshly painted toenails. I seriously can't believe it's already here!! I'm getting so excited!
Anywho, back to my toes. I've gone to the same nail salon for about 7-8 years. Chuc and Tina own the salon. Tina has always been the one to do my nails...love her! Well today, after she finishes my pedicure, she goes to the back and comes out with this bag.
It was full of onesies, hats, gowns, and a blanket.
Tina doesn't speak/understand English as well as some, but every time I went in to have my nails done (over the past 3 years) she would ask how my doctors appointments were going. She knew that we were trying to have a baby. I don't know that she fully understood what we were going through with the IVF, but she knew it wasn't as easy for us as for some. In my many years of going there, I've had the pleasure of celebrating Tina's three pregnancies with her. :) It just touched my heart that she would bring us these gifts. She's such a sweetheart.
So many of you have sent us gifts for A and each one means so much! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I honestly can't wait to put each and every item that we've received on her. I hope she likes to change outfits several times a day, because she's going to be my little baby doll. :)
Oh, and I've had some people leave a message in the comments section, asking about A's name. Sometimes I wish that I were able to just type out her name on the blog. I love her name...I think it's so pretty. I already make up songs with her name in them and sing them to her. (LOL) BUT...I must respect my husband's wishes and I love him for just wanting to keep our baby girl safe. I would be more than happy to share it with you, just click on the email button on my sidebar and send me a message or leave me your email address in the comments section and I'll email you! :)
Love you guys,
