I mean, seriously...LOOK at that little jean jacket and sweat suit...
So, yeah...we've been shopping!=) I think Baby P now has more clothes than I do... Ben was cracking up that this is the first time EVER I've walked in and out of the mall without ever once looking at something for myself. It's amazing us at how quickly and fiercely we love this child that we have never even met... "Me" has definitely faded to the background.
Just another pic of some clothes piles that I am quickly trying to organize. Have any of you ever noticed that the baby boy sections in these stores normally takes up only a tiny little corner?... then the other 3/4 of the store are all pink...CRAZY!!! Somehow, we still managed to find more than enough. =) Let me tell you, though... Ben has some definite opinions on what his little man is going to be dressed in! We are ALL BOY... and I love it!
Enough about the clothes, though (even though they are so much fun!)... on to the real reason for my post this afternoon. We just had the incredible honor of meeting and talking with S for the first time - what a precious, precious time that was for us! Thank you so much for all of your prayers...the call went wonderfully!!! We feel overwhelmed at the abundance of God's blessings... to know that our sweet boy has been so loved and prayed for right from the very beginning by this incredible birth family... this exceeds our wildest expectations!!!
Baby P and S have their last doctor appointment tomorrow before the birth - S is incredible and will be filling us in on all of the details from the appointment as soon as she can. I can't wait to hear them!!! At their last appointment about 2 weeks ago, Baby P was already weighing 6.5 - 7 lbs... So they are estimating his birth weight to be 8lbs or greater - what a big boy!!! S also said that he is VERY active... so I'm sure our home is about to be filled with lots of laughs and all things little boy!
I can't even describe to you the emotions running through us right now... we are ELATED...floating on cloud 9!!! I don't think that the tears have stopped flowing since Friday afternoon...
Oh!!! And we do have a name picked out for Baby P! We were able to share it with S today, and it is so very special to us! We will announce it publicly as soon as he is born... we can't wait to meet our baby boy!
Rejoicing and praising the ultimate Giver of Life!
