So, Matthew isn’t quite here yet, but I have begun to be ‘showered’ with gifts from my CAST member friends from Etsy. This group of Christians keep me sane during the day by giving me some adult company. They’re a supportive group of mostly women who chat about spiritual things, our shops, our kids… anything really.
Without further ado, and in no particular order, here is what the mailbox has been providing of late:
Sara from WormeWoole made this newborn hat for our little guy. It’s in the hospital bag ready to go with us on Friday. It’s hard to believe that he will be so small!
Rita from SammysGrammy is a multi-talented lady who saw that I was interested in something RCMP related, and made this -
I ordered something from Crystal’s shop (KraftersKorner) and when it arrived, the package was much larger than expected. Instead of only stickers, she had sent these cute little outfits for Mattie. Pat’s been fascinated by the ‘car car’ on the 3 pc set:
Lorrie (WitsEndDesign) heard that the baby’s room has rabbits on it, and sent me this Peter Rabbit cross stitch. It is hanging on the wall close to the crib right now. Cute, eh? She also sent a bib that she made. It looks so cozy We’re hoping that this little guy will eat better than big brother #1 and #2. With the low standard that they’ve set, it shouldn’t be too difficult
Now I was surprised a few months ago with a book in the mail from Nelly. It’s called Supernatural Childbirth, and really provided me some food for thought. Nelly has really encouraged me to think more about some topics that I thought I perhaps had a handle on before… this is a good thing She’s also a fellow Canadian and I got to meet her in ‘real life’ too, along with Rita!
It’s so nice to have some ‘just for Matthew’ items Thanks guys!
…and I’ve heard a few rumours that Matthew has more things on the way
Here’s a few pictures of Zach and Pat as babies.
Zach surprised us with his light coloured hair:
And I like Pat’s expression in this photo. Zach was just 19 months when Patrick was born:
