Baby P's First Gifts

Tonight we had a little impromptu "LET-THE-WAITING-BEGIN-FOR-BABY P" celebration with my parents and sister, Neely (she drove all the way to our side of town..yay!!).  We had a great dinner at a new Hibachi Steakhouse, and they also surprised us with some very special first gifts for Baby P...


The cross reads "For this child I have prayed... I Samuel 1:27"...and we will get it monogrammed with Baby P's real name (when we know what that is!).  It will look so cute in the nursery!  And, of course, the 'Guess How Much I Love You' book (with the little teething bunny to go with it) - probably one of the greatest children's books ever =)

.
And, last but certainly not least...I was re-gifted "Todo"...  This ugly little dog was as close as I ever came to a doll (yes, I was a tomboy)...and man, was I attached to him!  So special that my Mom saved him for all these years!

Ben and I are so incredibly thankful for both of our families and all that they have done to help.  They have shown unconditional love and support towards us and our decision to adopt.  It has made a world of difference to Ben and I - we couldn't have made it through this entire process without them.  We love you!
