Words cannot begin to express how grateful we are for all of our friends and family who have joined us in celebrating the upcoming arrival of our son. Nick and I already love him more than we ever thought possible, but it is overwhelming when those around you express their love for him by showering us with extremelty generous gifts.
A few weeks ago, we traveled to my hometown for our first shower. Some of my mom's very best friends hosted a beautiful shower at my home church. It was a special weekend in many ways, and we were truly smothered in love and kindness.
A few weeks later, several of my co-workers, co-workers' wives, and one of my best friends, Bethany, hosted a shower here in Birmingham. Once again I was overwhelmed with everyone's generosity. It was a sweet afernoon with family and friends!
And just this week, the girls in my Sunday School Class hosted a diapers and wipes shower. We do this for each other when someone in the class has a baby, and it is such a sweet time of fellowship. At each shower we take time to pray for the baby and the parents. It was a special evening for me, and I am so thanful for our amazing Sunday School community. I somehow managed to come away with no pictures, but here is the loot they sent me home with! I think we are set for a while!
What a special season in life! We are beside ourselves with excitment about Graham's upcoming arrival and are reminded how loved and supported we are by our family and friends. Thank you for immersing us with your generosity! We are forever grateful.
