I have LOVED opening the mail this week, because we have been sent so many sweet cards and some precious, precious gifts! No one told me how much fun this was!! Of course we are so thankful for each person who has encouraged us and is praying for this little one. I literally can't wait for the day when I can hold this baby in my arms and tell them how loved, wanted, and prayed for they are. What a blessing! I have been incredibly good and have not bought anything yet, although I am scheming and dreaming about many things! Perhaps one benefit of being nauseous is that I don't feel good enough to shop! I spend lots of time at home right now and I come straight home after I get done working. One of these days, I'm hoping this will pass and I'll be back to my normal self, and when that day comes, look out! I'll be doing some serious damage!! Here are some of the fun things we've gotten this week!
My favorite gift of all, is this adorable, brown and white zebra blanket. My Mom and Dad sent it to me and I LOVE it! The one thing I know right now about our nursery, is that I am painting the walls chocolate brown. This sweet blanket will look PERFECT in there!
They also gave us this cute little book abut a mama bunny and her babies, which Travis read to me after we opened it.
Travis' Mom bought this little owl for the nursery while she was here. So cute.
I laughed when this came in the mail, because Trav's cousin Melissa, is sure that we are having a little girl! She sent us this darling hairbow and the onesie below, in case she's right!
In case you can't read this, it says, "This is my little black dress!"
And this is one of my favorite books, I've given it as a gift many times. My best friend Amber sent this to us, along with the world's cutest onesie below.
This is the adorable view from the back...
And this is the precious view from the front, "Heaven Sent." We agree! I squealed all night over this one!
And somehow, with great restraint, I have kept myself from going crazy and buying everything that looks cute...Until...Yesterday. Travis and I went to a few garage sales looking for maternity clothes and we saw this. I was already wearing an Iowa sweatshirt and when I saw this, brand new and with the tags still on, and I had to have it. It will be awhile before the baby can wear it, but in honor of my parents, we now have our first Hawkeye outfit!
