|The world's cutest baby!|
I can remember the excitement of carrying my first child, like it was yesterday. I think every mother can. There is something so special about that first kick, when one begins to realize that there really is a little being growing within. It has been quite a while from my first born to my last grandchild, and now my youngest son, Chris and his wife are going to have their daughter in two more months. With all my children and grandchildren you would think it would be old hat but I still feel the excitement mounting.
Mariolina is in New York right now with her family, Chris joins her this weekend. She wanted to be in NY for her mother’s birthday and to enjoy the baby shower and well wishes with her and Chris’ NY family. They come back to Michigan this week end and we will prepare for our baby shower here the last week end in March.
Some of the gifts are already trickling in. It is their first child. They need everything, and it makes our hearts swell to see the outpouring of love shown by the gifts and well wishes. They are young and struggling. She has had a tough pregnancy with nonstop morning sickness the first few months, which were so bad she could not keep her job. They are living on one salary in a two salary economy and are also setting up household for the first time making things even more difficult.
We try to help when and where we can, but knowing how much they are doing without and making do, just makes us all the more grateful to those who are being generous. We want to give all her family and friends something very special, a combination birth announcement, thank you card that will reflect our appreciation and share the happiness of the moment at the same time.
I found a site online that will print your birth announcements just like you want them! You can choose your own words, font, and so forth and have complete creative license. They will even mail them for you, if you would like! I can’t wait till she gets back home to show her this! Then we will start looking at anniversary invitations because that celebration will be later this year. It’s great to have so much to celebrate!
Thanks so much for your visit today. Take care, God bless, and stay healthy.
