You guys. In the past week or so, guess how many boxes of AWESOME baby stuff have showed up in the mail for us?
Guess how many of them are from awesome, generous, amazing bloggers whom I've never even met in person?
First, The New Girl went far, far, far above and beyond the contest of hers that I won and sent me a whole box of pregnancy/new parent stuff. Huge piles of books. Baby wraps (including a Moby wrap! Which I had on our registry). Blankets (including a Miracle Blanket! Which I had on our registry). Nursing covers. And on and on. It is like the Mary Poppins carpet bag, only for newborns. And it is AWESOME.
Then, Erica sent a big box of maternity clothes, really nice ones from Old Navy, a whole set of jeans and long sleeve shirts and sweaters, basically an entire maternity wardrobe. All of it lovely, all of it in great condition, all of it stuff I would have picked myself. All in a box for ME ME ME. Except, one thing wasn't for me--a teeny tiny pair of adorable Keds that I cannot WAIT to put on Piglet.
And lastly, Kate sent me an amazing package of adorable, barely-worn newborn boy clothes that her own son grew out of almost immediately. There's a snowsuit and a whole adorable set of onesies, pants, hats, and other insanely cute tiny baby clothes. A whole entire newborn WARDROBE was in that box.
All of this! From people I know exclusively through our blogs. From people who are just really incredibly nice and thoughtful and giving.
This baby is already so loved and spoiled, even by people he's never met. And, another lovely benefit: it makes me feel pretty freaking loved and spoiled myself. Everybody wins!
