First Baby Gifts!

Baby Carter has already been blessed with a number of wonderful gifts!

When our friends, Emily and Drew, heard the big news they sent us a few of their favorite baby items to congratulate us!

A baby name book to help us pick out a great name for Baby Carter (we've already used this a ton and we still don't know the sex yet!). A toy bar to keep Baby Carter entertained on trips to DC to visit his/her buddy, Asher.
Not pictured: preggie pop drops that I consumed already because they were yummy and very helpful with the nausea!

Thanks Emily and Drew! We can't wait to strap the toy bar to the baby's carseat and bring Baby Carter to play with Asher!

This week Carl's mom surprised us with a few "winter baby" items that she picked up for us.

A bundleme to keep Baby Carter warm in the carseat or stroller and a cute hat to match! Sure to keep Baby Carter toasty through the Cleveland winter :)

Thanks Mom C!

Last but not least! Baby Carter received his/her first books this weekend! Carl and I went over to our friends, Joe and Laura's, for an impromptu July 4th cookout with some of their friends and family. I have been friends with Joe and Laura since high school and Laura was a bridesmaid in Carl and my wedding. Well, Laura's mom, an elementary school librarian, showed up at the cookout with two baby books for us!

Goodnight Moon and The Very Hungry Caterpillar!

Not the greatest picture but I couldn't bring myself to take them out of the cute ribbon just yet.

I might start reading them to Baby Carter right now :)

Thanks Kathy!

We feel so blessed to have so much love and support as we take on becoming parents!
