From the family perspective, things are starting to slow down and come back to normal. I am still elbow-deep in thank you cards and more just seem to keep coming. It is great to see the outpouring of support from family and friends who all genuinely cared for my mother as much as we did. It is very comforting.
We spent the weekend at the house in Philly collecting all of the baby items from your brother, clothes and more so that we can try and better prepare the house and everything for your arrival. Jack and I went to the Outlets to buy some outfits and sleepers to supplement the clothes that will not work out due to the season. We also hit up Pottery Barn Kids and the Janie and Jack Outlet and got some great toys and items for the home and matching outfits for next winter.
We are still hoping to sell this house as we truly don’t have a room ready for when you come home with us. It is killing me with my nesting urge because all I want to do is prepare your nursery and prepare for your arrival. Granted, the first few months are spent in the cradle in our room, but I would still love to have a special place for you in the house. Once we sell the other house, you will have your own special room, but if we are still in this house, then you may have to room with your brother for a little while. It will all work out. I have faith in that. Especially if your grandmother has a say in the matter!
