Another post to catch up!
I've had some sweet ladies send some cards and gifts both for Wyatt's birthday and for Seth's birth day that I am long over due in thanking.
First of all, I would like to thank Sarita for the sweet gifts she sent all the children!
Ansley and Eli were thrilled to open their gifts. They wanted to know if it was their birthday!
And they have thoroughly enjoyed coloring in their books... so much so that they've already colored ALL the pictures!
Sarita also sent this sweet handmade card for Wyatt as well as this beautiful cross. I put the cross right next to Wyatt's urn and it makes me smile every time I look at it.
She also sent Seth this Baby's 1st Year Calendar (which I'm already using), a cute little lion toy, and a card congratulating us on his safe arrival.
You would think all that would be more than enough, but she also sent this adorable little outfit for Seth to grow into...
What's so neat about this outfit (besides it being adorable), is that she got Celia the same exact one because she knew how good of friends we were and wanted Seth and Xainder to have a matching outfit. How sweet is that? I can't wait to be able to take pictures of them in their matching outfits! I will most definitely be posting a picture of that!
Thank you so much Sarita for the sweet gifts.
And speaking of Celia... she was sweet enough to do a balloon release for Wyatt. Thanks girl! You can go here to read her original post if you'd like!
I also owe Stephanie a huge thank you for the gift she sent to celebrate Wyatt's first birthday. Isn't this just gorgeous?
And of course, the first ring I put on it had to be Wyatt's ring. Thank you so much Stephanie for thinking about Wyatt on his first birthday in heaven. I was floored when I got this package in the mail and it reminds me how lucky I am to have such wonderful women in my life each time I put my rings around the trunk of this elephant each night.
Joseph brought the mail in yesterday and handed me a package from My Forever Child. I've been wanting to order something from there forever now, but have never ordered anything. So I was a bit dumb founded when I got a package from them. When I opened the package, I read that it was from Holly for Wyatt's birthday. She had a custom necklace made for me to wear so that I'd always be able to wear it close to my heart. My breath caught in my chest when I saw this necklace...
An elephant, a pearl (Wyatt's birthstone), and a pendant with Wyatt on the front and his birth date on the back. I could not have picked out a more perfect necklace if I'd chosen it myself. Thank you so much Holly. I've been wearing this necklace since I got it yesterday with no plans of taking it off!
Holly also sent cards for both Wyatt's birthday and for Seth's birth. Here they are in that particular order.
Last, but not least, I opened up my e-mail this afternoon and was surprised by this sweet picture to add to Wyatt's name gallery from Caroline.
Thank you so much Caroline. You're always so sweet to think about Wyatt and to offer words of encouragement and most importantly prayers!
I am overwhelmed by the kindness and friendship I have been blessed with over the last year and a half. Thank you to each of you for your comments, prayers, and love. And to these woman I just want to say an extra special thank you. None of these gifts were necessary, but I will cherish them always.
