We received a sweet baby gift in the mail. Thank you to whoever sent it. I do so love when surprises arrive in the mail, so thank you Sweet, Anonymous Giver…thank you!!!
Wall decals are packed. Thank you to everyone who mailed or dropped them off at our house. I cannot wait to hand these over.
We are taking gifts for all the staff and nannies at itty bitty’s orphanage. So many goodies are packed, but I also wanted to take these special woman a piece of my Mom…pretty bracelets and bangles I remember Mom wearing. I think that will do just fine.
I made treats to share on Father’s Day. I replaced the Oreo with a Milky Way…you can thank me now Cookie dough + Milky Way + brownie mix = Heavenly.
Father’s Day…Josh’s last one as a father of 3.
Muffins to celebrate a pretty rockin’ Dad. We love you Josh Kelley.
A morning swim is standard routine in the Kelley house now. I adore the fun. I adore the time. I adore the wee Kelleys.
BEST.LAMP.EVER. Thank you so much Sandra, Courtney & Stef.
Started the morning with swimming laps with Jess. An excellent start to a crazy hectic Monday.
I failed in the pretty packaging department today. Just not enough time. I apologize to the recipients
Funniest paci ever. Thanks Sandra and Stef…you guys are just too good to us.
Boys are nutty and funny and crazy and I cannot wait to have another one in the mix. I do fear for their lives sometimes though
And I made itty bitty his first little onesie. I think he will be pretty stinkin’ cute sporting it.
So the weekend & today were crazy…C.R.A.Z.Y. We got so much done and now, now I feel a bit ready…prepared. I’ve been ready to meet this crazy sweet boy from the beginning, but now, now I’m really ready. Bags are packed. All the details are in line and we’re ready. I cannot believe we are finally going to meet this amazing child. And yesterday I thought to myself, even when he is finally home…when we get to step off that plane with him in our arms…crossing our fingers…at the end of July…this is really just the beginning. This is not the end, but the very beginning. The beginning of family…all over again. Such a sweet beginning…such a bittersweet new life. So many things to be thrilled and excited and joyous about, but also so many things to grieve and mourn. I am so glad God has everything in His hands…I am so glad that even though we can barely see a few steps in front of us, God can see through eternity. He understands how all this will play out and I am so humbled just to be a piece of His plan. I cannot believe He would even think about allowing us to be apart of His great stories. What an honor…what a blessing. God is just too, too good.
