Presents Galore! Part Deux.

Have I mentioned how loving, supportive, caring, and downright wonderful our friends and family are?!  Baby Geronimina is already so loved - I have said it before, and will say it again - it absolutely overwhelms me.  I can't wait for her to meet all of you. 

We have been showered with gifts ever since we found out we were expecting - we honestly have the greatest friends and family ever.  Since I am still sick (and therefore exhausted), I am going to do a (mostly) picture post to show you what we've gotten since the last "presents update!" 

Right after we found out that Geronimina is a "she," we had dinner with our neighbor besties Bo & Meagan.  Dan works with Bo, and I've gotten to know them both well since we moved.  We LOVE having them as neighbors, because they are so much fun, and we have really enjoyed getting to know them better.  I think (hope!) we will be friends for years to come!  Not to mention that Layla and their dog, Fender, have total crushes on each other.  We can't walk by their house (and vice versa) without Layla stopping at their gate to whine for Fender.  Anyway, they gave us the following:


Sweet little Cabbage Patch cow

"daddy says NO DATING until i'm 25!"
Cutest ever, right?  I had a cabbage patch doll, Dottie, growing up and wouldn't go anywhere without her - isn't the cow adorable?  And the onesie is hilarious - and so fitting.

The same day, Dan brought home the sweetest gift from another work friend, Daniel.  I've gotten to know Daniel and his wife, Mary-Peyton, through my Dan.  They just had the sweetest little baby boy named Whitaker, and I can't wait to meet him!  Here was our "YAY IT'S A GIRL!" gift from the three of them:


MY WORD the cuteness.  Can't be contained!  Thanks guys!

Next up is my girl Leah, who you may remember not too long ago sent me the Burt's Bees Mama Bee gifts.  LC (I guess you are LL now?!?!?!), you are spoiling this baby and I rotten!  Anyway, I came home Friday to this little gem of adorableness (not a word, I know), and I thought I'd died and gone to Heaven:


BABY GLITTER TOM'S!  IN MY FAVORITE COLOR!  Seriously.  I die.  And the pictures can't even do them justice.  If you have never heard of Toms, you should check them out - I am a big fan of their one for one program.  For every pair of shoes or eye wear purchased, they donate a pair to a child in need.  Pretty nifty, right?  There is a hilarious story behind said Toms that I will have to tell you another time - it's kind of long-winded.  Maybe tomorrow?  Auntie Leah, thank you SO MUCH for the adorable gift.  We LOVE it, and Geronimina told me she can't wait to rock them to match Mommy's pink glitters!

Probably one of the greatest gifts from this past week was that I got see my best girlfriends from college over the weekend.  We live close to one another, relatively speaking, but far enough away that we don't see each other every day or week (like I would love to), so when we do get together it's a real treat.  Allison, April, April's daughter Ava, Megan and I met in Durham at Mad Hatter Bakeshop and Cafe (we missed you Amanda and Sheila!) for breakfast, and I had such a great time catching up.  Girls, if you're reading, can we PLEASE make a conscious effort to meet more often?  Anyway, no offense to the rest of you, but the best part was hanging out with Ava:

...even when she showed me her mad face:

Cute, ain't she?  As well as smart, hilarious, and very well-behaved.  Love all of you girls, let's PLEASE do it again soon!

In closing, this has nothing to do with being showered with gifts by our amazing friends and family, but look where I got to park today when I went to Babies R Us to pick up some gifts for Carrie's work baby shower tomorrow:


It's the little things, I guess.  Off to bed for me, still trying to sleep off this sickness!
