I'm proud to bring you a much more upbeat post, finally :)
The Mentzel's have been spoiling us quite a bit lately! When I say us, I mean myself, hubby, Cohen & Elton. Not only have they sent us goodies, they brought us their presence...the ladies anyway! Molly & Katie came to visit yesterday morning and left this morning. We went to lunch, played, laid around & chatted, watched movies, etc. It was certainly nice to have something take my mind off everything going on for a bit. Hubby was able to get some rest yesterday while Katie and Molly entertained me.
Katie brought us a little care package! Lots of fun goodies :) I didn't think about it at the time quick enough to tell Katie, but Brent had been talking about making Cohen a mixed cd to play to him. He wanted to do some classical music and music we enjoy. The the iTunes card works perfectly for that!
they brought me a pretty purple bouquet of flowers :)
We went to lunch at a Mexican food place and Molly seemed to enjoy herself..we all did!
her and brent were pretty cute playing together
Katie caught Brent mid chip
Me & Katie
After lunch, we played and relaxed
A few weeks ago, the Mentzel's sent us some of their favorite baby things :) I say "us"..but technically, Cohen! I liked seeing his name on the package.
These are the goodies that came! Sophie, Itzbeen Baby Care Timer, Baby Giggles book by Rachael Hale & Trumpette Skipper socks that look like lil sneakers.
On all the packing slips, there were little notes as to why they liked each -
These are so fun & came in 6 different colors.
Thank you Mentzel's for all the the thoughtfulness! We love you guys!
We have such amazing friends and family. I've snapped pictures of a few other goodies we've gotten as care packages. It definitely has been bringing us some smiles and full tummies. So another pleasant post coming soon.
I have the amnio in the morning and hopefully will know the results in the next few days.
We've been doing a bit better the past few days. Just trying to wait for more news, as patiently as possible. I've had some ironic things happen and a few interesting dreams. Perhaps I'll do a post on those soon.
I hope you guys had a good weekend.
