We had an amazing weekend at Dan’s parents this past, to start off Week 26! As I mentioned previously, Nancy, Megan, Gretchen and Maddy had been working hard on all the details, but they truly outdid themselves with this little “garden party.” There were many small details that added the feeling of summer to this party:
We were so lucky to have so many of Dan’s family join us to celebrate Baby Stern. We got a ton of gifts, and “boy, oh boy” this little guy is going to be quite fashionable with all the little outfits that he received!
One of the wishes I’ve had is that we ask for each person’s favorite children’s book to build the baby’s library – and we received so many great books, just at this shower – we’re going to have an entire library stocked for him by the time he arrives! We also got the cutest gift, which we hadn’t even thought about. Dan’s cousins Vicki and Maryann got us a bookcase – to hold all his books! It was the perfect present and we’ve already got it set up (and filled) in the nursery. It will surly be used for years to come.
We felt so blessed to have all of the Stern family there that day to celebrate with us and show us how excited they are for our little boys arrival. It was the perfect day – no rain, sunshine, and for June, not too hot. I’d like to say that those who aren’t able to be with us during this exciting and amazing time in our lives, were shining down upon us and giving us good weather for a beautiful afternoon celebration outside.
And last, but certainly not least, my amazing husband, Dan, who has done so much for me and our son already. I am so proud to be his wife and cannot wait to share this journey with him. He is my best friend and will be the most amazing father.
Thank you to everyone who was apart of this special day! We continue to be blessed by the overwhelming support from everyone and are so excited for Baby Stern to meet each of you!
Baby boy, you are so lucky to have such a loving and support family and have so many people loving you as much as they already do. You will be welcomed with open hearts in September. Until then, we continue to celebrate a healthy pregnancy and pray that you are growing big and strong.
Love, Mom & Dad
