Blessings in the Mail

I got a fun package in the mail yesterday from my friend Vicki Courtney and her daughter Paige. Yeah! I love packages!

I waited to open it until Jackson was asleep because I didn't want to upset him. He doesn't understand why every present isn't for him. Bless his heart. But look! There was a toy for Jackson! How thoughtful!


Next I pulled out Vicki's newest "baby" - Five Conversations You Must Have With Your Daughter. I'm so excited that I qualify to read this!


A pocket Bible for Baby Girl when she's a tween!


And, BEHOLD, tiny pink ballet slippers!


They even have the ballet shoe smell - I mean fragrance. It takes me back to Miss Libby's class in first grade. I love it! Vicki and Paige, these shoes are the cutest things I've ever seen! I squealed when I saw them in the box. Thank you, sweet sisters! Baby Girl will be so cute in them!

That's awesome! So adorable! I love holding baby girls since we have all boys. :)
Hopefully I can hold yours someday! :)

Holly said...

Those are the sweetest shoes!

I, too, am so glad you are having a daughter. You are going to be such a wonderful Mama to that baby girl--just as you are such a great Mama to Jackson.

I can see it in my mind's eye now--trips to the mall with all three generations present and hair ministry are in your future!

Takes me back to a sweet and simpler time when my own two baby girls were just that...babies.

Adorable...absolutely adorable.

Joyfully,
Melinda

I thought your title said Blessings in the MALL. As I was reading I kept wondering when the mall was coming into the story! I thought your mom had taken you on your birthday shopping spree. Kinda funny.
Enjoy your blessings!

Those shoes scream for a great photo op with baby...

She is going to be the best dresses baby girl.

I also LOVE the smell of ballerina shoes... I was a dancer in HS so I wore my fair share of jazz shoes and they share the same scent.

And, darlin shoes! They made me smile.

These shoes bring lots of emotion to the surface for me!

All the posts seem to be from relatively young blogger moms. Well I am way past that age and I can tell you I was blown away by this set of "blessings in the mail". So very great!!!

How adorably cute! Dressing a little girl is so much fun... My Sophia's getting big (7 months old) and I'm wishing I could slow the clock down... have a few more of the baby moments...

Those shoes are so precious. Can't wait to see her in them. I'm hoping Baby Girl has Jackson's long eyelashes too. Looking forward to her coming.

Debbie said...

How sweet. I'm reading her book Logged On and Tuned Out right now. I'm going to be speaking about it at our state conference this year.

I'm excited for you!

Erin said...

Would "Miss Libby" be Libby Stelly by any chance? If so, I took ballet from her too! I think we should have been good friends but missed each other - same neighborhood (growing up), same high school, same church (now), several mutual friends... We exchanged smiles at middle school camp about 3 years ago, but have never been properly introduced. Perhaps I should try to overcome my shyness and introduce myself next time I see you at church! In the meantime, I'm enjoying your blog! :-)

Janet said...

WOW! You have no idea what an answer to prayer this post was. Our baby girl turns 11 Wednesday. I can't wait to get the book AND the Bible for her!
