Karen and Frank Montgomery threw us a baby shower in San Antonio. We were blessed by many of our old friends as they helped us welcome Matthew into the world. Most of them had been in our lives for over eleven years. I am thankful for the support and love they gave us and continue to give us.
Now I have the fun job of organizing everything in the bedroom that will double as an office and a nursery. It is a fun challenge and will continue so as more gifts are given. And with the arrival of the baby supplies the idea that we’re having a baby grows more solid in my mind. It doesn’t matter that my stomach feels like Matthew’s personal jungle gym, he’s still an abstract thought most of the time.
