Baby G came for a visit today (on what was our original due date). It was so nice to see A&T and the lil guy and hear how their first week has gone. Sounds like they are getting settled into their new life as a family and enjoying parenthood.
I got in some cuddles which was nice, he's such a cutie. Really what makes me smile most though is watching IM (and IF) hold and interact with Baby G. When I think about how long they waited for their child and reflect on our journey over the past two and a half years I am still amazed at what a lil miracle he is.
Besides snuggles the other purpose of their visit was to pick up the EBM (expressed breast milk) I had for them . I was pretty excited about the supply I had, I stashed over 350 oz. in the last 6 days . We're gonna see each other again in the next few weeks for another EBM pick up. I'm glad I can do this for them, gotta keep that big boy well feed ... and it also helps me continue to feel useful.
Today A&T gifted me a beautiful Pandora bracelet. The bracelet is sterling silver and included seven beads; the Journey charm, Teddy Bear, Baby Carriage, Block w/ letter G, Silver Heart, Baby Booty w/ blue diamond and my favorite the Kangaroo with baby which is a symbol of surrogacy. This is something I will cherish and appreciate forever.
