As I mentioned in Week 18 of my pregnancy, we decided not to have a baby shower before Sam was born. But we did have a celebration last weekend for his arrival. To see it all put together was very overwhelming to me. I didn’t know if I would actually get to this point, but here we are.
One thing I know for absolute certain is that Sam is loved. And there were so many who have been waiting in anticipation to celebrate this arrival. He was held and cooed at and loved on the entire time. In fact, one little girl, the daughter of one of my friends, followed him around as he was passed from one loving set of arms to another, just fascinatingly smitten.
Another special part of the shower were the people there. Especially these four girls. I hosted some of their showers when their boys were born, and now they were here to celebrate my son.
I have an amazing community. I am so grateful for the people who have celebrated this little boy’s arrival both near and far. We have been just incredibly touched by those who have sent cards or other items, encouraging notes, and sweet messages. Thank you for loving our little family and for providing such an amazing welcome for our son.
