I have been neglectful in thanking all of our friends for the lovely gifts and well wishes we have received. I took my box of thank you notes with me to the hospital but they never left my over night bag…and truth be told still haven’t. I want to at least say thank you here until I get around to writing real thank yous. Have I mentioned I am incredibly tired because of this cute face?

Because that is my excuse for just about everything these days. But I’m still receiving sweet surprises in the mail. Today I received this beautiful box from Priscilla (how inadequate do I feel that I can’t even mail out thank yous and she manages to send gifts that look this pretty?):

This package arrived from my local friend Julie while I was in the hospital:

Thanks Julie!

And is this not one of the cutest sights ever? From Alleen:

Here are the contents of Priscilla’s box (I’m too tired to even get the photos in order LOL):

The girls will look so sweet!


Thanks P! You are awesome!

And from Melanie:

And huge thanks for the other thing too!

Samantha sent this completely adorable and oh so comfy looking outfit (do they make this in mommy sizes?):

And my cousin Vanessa who is living in London with her husband and 2 children AND is pregnant sent us this sweet dress and toy along with a box loaded with fabulous hand me downs (and a book from her parents that isn’t pictured because Sabrina has squirreled it away already):

Thanks for thinking of us!

Steph sent this sweet outfit and a video for Sabrina:

Carla and E sent Sabrina this darling Big Sister shirt:

And today on my doorstep, I found these great books from (TN)Kerry. Sabrina loves books so I have already read her 2 of them while feeding Tessa this afternoon.

Steve’s mom also brought some gifts from some folks at the family company (thanks – love the cute little pink rosebuds!) and his team at work gave us some incredibly generous gift cards (thanks TMC!).

I am positive that I have forgotten several people. It isn’t because I wasn’t aware or didn’t appreciate the gift. It is more likely because I thought I already thanked you or because it is temporarily lost in the sleepy haze that envelopes my days right now. I have been overwhelmed with all of the love sent our way during this joyous time. Thanks to you all – the wonderful thoughts and wishes mean as much as the boxes of goodies.

    Michelle I’m glad you posted this today, I needed a fix, Oh no I didn’t I needed to be reminded to get your box off my printer and get it in the mail. LOL

    It’s coming and I didn’t figure you were going anywhere so it will be there shortly!

    HUGS and the girls they are beautiful as always…

    You’re very welcome!!!

    Such cute things! Gosh, I miss the teeny, tiny little outfits. I still wander into the infant section in the stores, wondering if she’d squeeze into some of them.

    I think you will be forgiven. Two little ones will be a good excuse for quite some time.

    That is so great….and I think everyone who has kids understands about thank you notes!

    I also think its great that everyone is including Sabrina, that has to make it easier when gifts arrive!

    How fun to see pics of everything!! Please no other thank you notes – this is PLENTY of thanks. Use the time to love on your girls instead. 😀

  7. TNKerry Says:

    Melany – I was going to say the same thing. Please do not worry about sending a thank you to note – this post is perfect. I hope your girls enjoy reading their books 🙂

  8. Priscilla Says:

    You are welcome! That is the best thank you I’ve ever received. 🙂

    ps: I only had time to wrap b/c both husband and child were out of town! Wish I could send a few zzzz’s your way.

    OH the matching princess dresses! So cute. I’m kind of sad that the princess days will probably soon end for my 6-year-old, although I am thrilled to report she wanted to buy a mermaid Barbie tonight with her summer allowance loot.
