I still can't believe it. February 17-18, 2018. My baby shower weekend. He's almost here. It's almost time for the dance to begin. We started a bit early...
My mom and I picked Katie up at the airport on Thursday. The next day our entire family went to see Graham in a 3D ultrasound. Brad and I have seen him a lot of course but this was different. You could see his cheeks that I can't wait to kiss all over. It was neat for our parents to be a part of this experience too because they have never been to an ultrasound before. It was a day I'll never forget.
|My gracious hostesses|
|All his loot! I felt so very blessed.|
|Some of my babies I taught in the past.|
|Kissing on my boy!|
|Remember that mutual friend Katie and I had on Facebook? |
Well here they are! Sam and Kathi drove all the way from KY to celebrate
this child and see their old friends Betsy and Katie.
|My mourning is gone!|
|Cutest cookies ever|
|My sweet friends who showered me (minus two!)|
|The "I'm pregnant" video|
|Pictures from his nursery|
|My friend who took our adoption pictures that we ended up using to find |
our surrogate came and took pictures at the shower today too! Will share those once she edits them.
|Notice the embryo picture on the screen. We've come a long way!|
|My sweet friend who I have been through this entire process with because she was |
going through the same thing at the same time as me. She got to her baby girl last July!We both beat this thing!!!!!
|I may kiss him a bit much|
|She made ALL these elephants for the tables!|
So needless to say I was showered with love and Graham has a lot of what he needs now. I am so grateful to everyone who came and danced. I know that's not an easy thing to do and I saw it as a true sacrifice. I am almost to my promised land.
