My family and friends baby shower was yesterday and I feel so lucky to have such caring people in my life! We were given all of the big stuff plus many little things. There are really only a couple of things that I feel like we really need to purchase, and with the gift cards we've been given, we should be able to get them! So now, my husband is fixing up LO's closet and I'm sure he'll do the crib soon too. DH was even sweet enough to go by fragrance free detergent earlier so that I could get started on all the baby clothes washing. I'm going to end up doing two loads!! I got a whole bag of hand me downs from a friend yesterday plus a pretty good amount of new clothes from people!
Next Sunday my church is throwing me a shower, and I hate to say it like this, but there are a bunch of generous, wealthy people, so we'll see what happens there! They ladies in charge of the shower gave out my registry information plus they are having a money tree! LOL Oh yeah, and surprisingly, I only got one package of diapers and wipes, so hopefully I'll get some from the church!
This is definitely feeling more real having almost everything here and now we just have to get everything organized for her!
