Overwhelmed

Since the birth of our daughter we have been overwhelmed by our family and friends who have all banned together to really welcome our little surprise into the world. We have had so many people buy outfits for Miss Callie and other cute pink things so that she didn't have to go home in boy's clothing. We went from nothing (2 outfits that I had found at a garage sale) to having a whole closet full of clothes and items for her in the course of a weekend. My sister-in-law, Laura, brought a few bags of clothes that her daughter had just outgrown so she now has sleepers to puke in. :-) We are really feeling the love of community. Thanks to the Pools and Jonell for meals the last few days.

Also thanks to Tiffany, Kelsey, and Jonell for the nods to us in their blogs. We feel so priveleged. :-)

I love being in a community of believers that really know how to care well for each other. I know that Dave and I feel completely loved and cared for as we welcome and adjust to Callie in our world.

So, a BIG BIG heartfelt thanks from us.

We are so happy for you guys! I kept checking your blog every few hours to catch the first picture of little Callie! That picture of Noah and Callie is so sweet. Can't wait to meet her! Take it easy and rest when you can! I bet Grandma DeeDee is super excited to have 2 sweet, PINK grand-daughters! And of course as proud as can be to have 2 adorable grandsons!
