Seriously. I do. I LOVE presents.
A pack of gum, a Diet Coke from Sonic, a pair of lovely shoes, and even a pack of Pampers can make me feel warm and fuzzy all over when wrapped with a little bow or given with a smile.
Presents are fabulous.
I'm feeling especially warm and fuzzy these days because I've been the extremely blessed recipient of not one but TWO baby showers over the last week. Traditionally, baby showers are given to first time mommies - So, how lucky am I to have been given more than one shower for my SECOND child? It's all so sweet and unexpected - and I'm absolutely loving it!
The girls that I work with gave me a "Dipes and Wipes" shower/dinner last week. I had some yummy contraband food (don't tell my doctor!), great conversation, and got to open PRESENTS. It was the PERFECT evening.
Our Worship Team at church gave David and I a baby shower this weekend. They are just SO generous and precious and I truly, truly love them.
Avery loved helping mommy open the presents and was convinced that each gift was just for her. There's no reasoning with a 2 year old. I just let her enjoy it. She'll be sharing everything in a couple of weeks. Especially her mommy.
Oh, Lord Jesus: I'm going to need your help BIG TIME...
I'm not gonna lie - I had a little contraband at this shower too, but could YOU resist that cake? Seriously?
Obviously, I chose not to test my blood sugar after that meal.
Here's the craziest part of all this Present Business: I am having 2 more showers over the next week! Can you believe it?!? My mood is definitely improving. ;-)
