I got another package today in the mail. This time it’s from an old high school friend, Lorraine, who now lives in Oregon. In the package there were cute little pink outfits for the baby, pink socks, a pink hat, and pink shoes. SHOES! Tiny little shoes that fit into the palm of your hand.
Awwww they’re sooo cute. Thank you Lorraine!
On a sort of different rambling but sort of along the same lines…This morning I had really really bad stomach cramps for about 3 hours. I think I ate something bad. Alan was at work and when the pain got too much I finally called him to see when he’d be home. That was around 7:50am and he was headed to his car to come home.
He was so worried about me. He thought maybe we should call the doctor but I felt ok by the time he got home. He sat with me by the bed for a while and finally left my side to make something to eat. A little bit later he came back in with this look on his face. This look that makes me want to cry now that I’m thinking about it. It was the sweetest I’m so happy look.
In his hands were the little pink shoes. He just noticed them on the way to the kitchen and had carried them in to me. I had already seen them of course since I HAD opened the package but I guess he wanted to share that happy feeling with me, that I’m so happy we’re having a baby feeling. As if my growing belly weren’t enough, these tiny little shoes…tangible evidence of something small and wonderful coming our way.
