Happy Birthday...

So, birthdays are some of my favorite things in life... and I'm not one to forget a birthday... but the spotlight has been on our little angel this week. I remember Steph asking me sometime a few weeks ago what I wanted for my birthday... and just being stumped. I had no clue!! We had just moved and realized how much stuff we already had...so in my mind... I didn't need any new this or that... another shirt would just take up more room in our little closets, more books would just go into storage etc :)I tried and tried, but didn't know why I couldn't think of anything...

Sitting here on my birthday...looking back... I know exactly why nothing came to me... I didn't know at all what I really wanted. Today... when I peeked into Avery's little incubator... I found a surprise, arranged by a sweet, overwhelmed, tired mom...that just made my day.

The best little birtday present ever...

I LOVE it! What a great idea for Stephanie to do! She's on the ball for just having a c-section! I'm impressed. I love that teeny tiny handprint of Avery's - and, oh, you guys will treasure that for forever! What a wonderful gift our little ones are!
lots of love, mandy harline
