A very touching gift

19 Mar

We came home to a package on our door step today and were completely touched by the present inside. Kerry’s step-mom lost her battle with cancer in December 2006 and today Baby V received a gift from her. Erin, Kerry’s sister, sent us the nice package and the card let us know that Terri had worked on this as a surprise for Kerry and his future child. Somehow she knew! We both could not believe that she had done this (Kerry still has the blanket she made him many years ago). We decided it would look great hanging in the nursery:

I remember when I first met Terri that we got a good laugh about the similar names (Terri, Kerry, Cory and Torey) and anytime someone mistakenly calls me or Kerry ‘Terry’ I think of her.

Also, in the package was some very cute clothes from Aunt Erin and Uncle Cory and a whole set of shoes. Baby V has tennis shoes, pink shoes, mary janes and the cutest pair of sparkly baby converse.

The beginning of home rest

9 Mar

I think this home rest/modified bed rest thing should otherwise be known as house arrest. Today was not so bad- it is beautiful outside so I opened up all the windows, worked from home and visited the doctor. The doctor thinks Baby V has decided to stay put for a few more days so he was happy about that.

Yesterday, Kerry and I almost finished the nursery. We are just missing a mirror above the white cabinet, Mom’s painting for above the dresser and a few other decorations. I guess after our weekend experience it was pretty official that we will be bringing a baby home very soon 🙂


The bookshelf was the perfect place to hang the spy camera.

Thanks to everyone who has offered to entertain me, feed me, bring me coloring books and all the nice phone calls! We will keep you posted!
