Julie just looks so cute pregnant.
This Sara from the MISS Foundation, I didn't realize until she got there that we have very similar haircuts and glasses...Sara and Arah, how funny!
I got the coolest gifts from all of my friends. I was so happy to get clothes because I really didn't have any. Sarah got lots of blankets, diapers, clothes and bath stuff. There was a theme of pink and brown, which was totally awesome because I love pink and brown and everything is adorable, but it was also unintentional...maybe i was sending out brain waves or something? There was scrap booking stuff there and a lot of my friends made pages, so all I have to do is add pictures and journal. It turned out so cute, thank you everyone!
Sarah totally scored! I get to have a belly cast done, thanks to Pam, and Brinley even got a few gifts, a doll, she named Megan after a friend from school, and a little friend from her church class, Ethan, gave her some jelly bracelets and lip gloss, which she wore to school for picture day.
I want to thank everybody for everything! Julie and Pam for all the hard work they did. It was perfect. I loved everything about it. Thank you Pam for letting us crash your house. and everyone who could make it the the baby shower, it really meant a lot to me for you be there. I feel very loved. and those who couldn't make it, I know that you would have liked to have come, I feel loved by you too. if I forgot you on the invite list, it was not intentional, I tried to include everyone and I have preggo brain.
All day, yesterday, I wasn't sure how I was going to react to this baby shower. Its been kinda bittersweet, something hard to explain because I feel that it wasn't something I got to experience with Olivia. Maybe it sounds weird, but I felt like that it should have been Olivia that was supposed to get all this new stuff and Sarah to get the hand-me-downs. Maybe that is why I haven't wanted to buy anything for so long. Now it's just getting to were it's a need-to get it.
I REALLY am excited about having Sarah here. I think that her birth will be just as emotional for me as Olivia's. I think it will be a little bit surreal for us to have her here, to think that we will actually have another baby in the house, a baby that is healthy, that will cry and poop and be hungry. A baby I get to bring home...not have to hand over to the Chaplain to take to the morgue. Another sweet little girl to add to our family.
