Feeling so blessed today. So many of our friends and family have been showering this little girl with love and gifts already! She's already spoiled and isn't even fully cooked yet! I have to say it feels a bit strange (and wonderful!) to be on the receiving end of baby gifts. For years I always loved shopping for baby gifts for everyone else and living vicariously through them. But now, things have changed. I'm almost in denial a little bit and thinking that all those adorable things that are accumulating in Samantha's nursery are for someone else. I go in there a few times a day just to stare at the itty bitty clothes hanging in the closet. And then I get daydreaming about the nursery all complete and set up. My heart swells up when I tell myself "This is happening. This is your baby girl."
This week we've received so many gifts! My friend Jill (who owns an Etsy shop) sent us the cutest handmade headbands and a travel wipe case. And it's not just any travel wipe case, she custom designs it and covers in it cool fabric! Check out her Etsy shop here. She makes really awesome things for babies and toddlers and can also make adult things too! I've ordered from her a few times!
We also received a surprise package from my cousin Jenny in CA. She sent us so many cute things! And Samantha's first ever ornament! It's a snowman that lights up and has her name on it!
And then yesterday my friend Kristen gave us a couple adorable outfits and a headband! And in the bag was this beautiful pink frame that reads " Faith is not believing that God can, it's knowing that He will." How perfect!
Can't believe there's only 11 days until Christmas! I feel like this month is flying by.
