I’m sitting on the couch, looking down at my enormous baby belly. Even though it’s enormous, I still can’t believe there is a baby in there big enough to be born in just one month.
I’m amazed that we have spent so much time during this pregnancy counting up and now suddenly…we are counting down.
We are preparing.
Yesterday? We bought diapers.
and I opened them and marveled at the TEENY-TINY SIZE. I showed them to the kids and to Brian and we all said “awwww” and “how cute” and one of the kids may or may not have hugged the diaper.
(For a really long time.)
And now? To add more reality to our lives … Stephanie, my best friend, my sweet, caring, beautiful, old-lady hippy friend, who would go to the ends of the earth for anyone, an incredible Mom, wife, FRIEND … she is hosting a virtual shower for me. For this baby…for my family.
I know she has put so much work into this. All of the companies involved have generously donated items for me … but also for a lucky reader. That’s right, everything I am receiving from this “good new-fashioned shower” a lucky reader will receive the same item. (it’s like we’ll be sisters!) (or brothers!)
It’s like a big nest of BABY and LOVE and HOPE and OHMYGOD, just pure awesomeness.
So, go here and read how the shower works and also see all of the amazing and generous companies (big & small!) who are involved. Then check back many times a day from today until March 6th to enter to win SO MANY ITEMS. Also, almost everything that she is showing you, is what I picked out, it’s EXACTLY what I’ll be receiving. (but much of it, you’ll get your own choice.)
Also, please feel free to add the cute little button onto your sidebar (share the love with your expecting friends and readers!), Stephanie has the codes on her site at the bottom of this post.
(That cute little button and the shower name were created by my fabulous best friend, @sarahviola. She is pure brilliance, don’t you think?)
Thank you again to Stephanie, I never take for granted that you are in my life and thank you for loving this baby and for showing me TRUST since the moment you found out I was pregnant. I’ve needed you so much during this time, which has really been the greatest gift of all. (ILY,M)
