A few weeks ago an old friend I haven’t seen in years sent me an e-mail and told me that she was getting rid of some of her son’s old baby stuff. She asked if we wanted any of it. I wrote her back and said sure, she was welcome to send anything she wanted to get rid of. Yesterday two big boxes came from Texas. I had forgotten about our emails but when I opened the boxes they were FILLED with baby stuff. When she said “some” stuff I assumed a few items. She not only sent all her son’s 0-3 month clothes, she sent us a bunch of recieving blankets, towels, wash clothes, an unoppened box of 4 Avent bottles and even some maternity shirts. I couldn’t help but burst into tears. Jeremy and I had maybe 3 onsies for the baby and besides the crib that’s all we have ready for him. Sitting around all day makes you realize how much more is needed. I know I have 2 months to go (praying he stays in there that long) but it can be overwhelming to think about all the items needed for a child. I’m sure many of you can relate. I can’t thank her enough for sending us the boxes, she was an answer to our prayers.
Some of the onsies were so funny. Here are two that had me laughing
