On a Brighter Note...




We were so humbled by the outpouring of support we received at baby shower number 2. There were around 90 people there and the place was packed out. The food was amazing, the people were so gracious, and our host team was incredible. The love and gifts that were lavished on us truly made us feel so humbled by the experience - not to mention that it was a BLAST! We had to rush through the opening of gifts - both of us opening at the same time, to save time. Well, it still took over an hour. No kidding. What a huge treat and there were so many things we needed and all in all - we only had about four things we needed to take back because either we already had them or he would be too big for them. It was incredible! You kind of picture getting a ton of clothes at a baby shower, but we got all sorts of things that we truly needed - outside of clothes. People really followed our registry - it was awesome! Meanwhile, we're STILL sorting through all the stuff in his room now. I've taken like an hour each night to go in and work on things - but it's totally overwhelming. Sometimes I feel like I don't know where to start - yikes! It'll all work out - I know. But meanwhile - we're just still reeling from the outpouring of generosity. It's been quite the experience. Quint is such a loved and cared for little boy and he doesn't even know it - but friends - one week from Monday - he WILL!
