I don't even know where to begin with this weeks update. It was a whirlwind of a weekend! I had the absolute pleasure of attending A&T's baby showers and meeting many of their friends & family.
The first was a couples shower Saturday evening with their friends, all of who where very friendly, inviting and wonderful. Thank you so much to all those who attended and made me feel so welcome and special. It was a beautiful night enjoying every ones company on the patio with cocktails (that is drinks for everyone but me of course). It was amazing watching IM beam as she opened up gifts and imagine all that is to come. Dinner was wonderful, thank you so much to the hostess/host for all you did to make the evening perfect for A&T and opening your home to all of us.
It was early morning before we headed back to A&T's for some rest. Once there we changed into some comfy clothes and visited some more while IF prepared the next mornings breakfast. It was 3:30 am before we all headed off to bed for the night. :)
The ladies shower was the next day. I'll admit, meeting everyone at once (40 women) was a bit overwhelming but it was incredible being introduce to so many wonderful people who were there outpouring their love for A&T and Baby G. We enjoyed some more amazing food (the menu is always important to a pregnant woman). After lunch I think it took well over an hour for A&T to open all the gifts. The job of "card reader" was given to IF - IM just couldn't get through most of them without crying. She was just glowing from all the attention and love, it was very obviously emotional for her to realize their dream of a family was finally coming true. Following the shower we were invited back to "Grandpa & Grandma's" (IF's parents) where we were treated to yet another great meal before heading home at nightfall.
It was just amazing to meet all the friends and family who are anxiously waiting to spoil this baby and love on him. I want to thank everyone again for all your kind comments and for making Jason and I feel welcome. A&T and their son are so very blessed to have you in their lives and again I feel so very honored to be a part of this journey too.
So now that we are in the final weeks the update could be "HE'S HERE" any day now! Until then though, the next appointment is this coming Thursday (4/15). We'll be getting a final u/s and our OB will check to see if I'm making any progress yet and maybe take a guess at when Baby G will arrive. Stay tuned!!
