Okay so one to the goodies part! My mom spent the week with my sister and co in Florida about 2 weeks ago. Well thankfully I am the half way spot on the drive, meaning mom has to stay with me for the night! On her way home she brought some goodies from my sisters house back for Baby R and myself. There were many wonderful things but one that really pulls at my heart.
My sweet niece Little Bear who I love with my whole heart sent a special gift for the baby. You see she loves, loves, loves baby dolls. When I say she loves them, well that really doesn't even express the true love there is for each one. She has named all 37 (that was the last count I can remember) of her dolls and ACTUALLY PLAYS with each one. Click here to see a little view of them! She is the most creative child I know when it comes to playing. They will have birthday parties, play school, oh and her all time favorite Jon and Kate plus 8! She brings them all out and lines them up ready to go....here is the point to my story!
Little bear sent the baby a special gift:
She included a note...thank goodness because here Auntie can't keep up with the names like she can! I can't believe she was kind enough to send our baby some of her very loved and cherished babies.
Here is the whole crew ready to be loved on by Baby R! Of course she will have to come down and makes sure I have them all set up correctly. When I talked to her on the phone she was so sweet about it, because this really is a huge thing for her to do. I confirmed that she was okay with our baby using her babies. "She said yes, Auntie plus when I come to visit I will check on them to make sure they are okay. But if you do have a boy...I may need to take them back until he gets big enough to really love them." She melts my heart that girl, who's brother recently has begun loving his baby...read about it here!
She also sent us our ONE YEAR wedding anniversary gift that is absolutely adorable! I love these two things so much...A) They were hand made! B) They are our wedding colors and C) They remind us of the beach were we said I DO!! LOVE them!
