Best Christmas Present Ever

Merry Christmas! And God bless us, every one.


The hospital gave us this stocking when Baby was born, made by their volunteers. After the baby is bathed, prodded and measured, they deliver the baby to the mother tucked inside these stockings. Since Baby spent her first day in the NICU, we missed out on that so I had to re-create it at home. The shirt she's wearing was part of her take-home outfit. The tag reads "Mom and Dad's best present ever" and ain't that the truth!

(I started this post as a Wordless Wednesday, made famous by 5 Minutes for Mom, but this isn't really a wordless post because, frankly, its nearly impossible to get me to shut up.)

Jessica, I like it that you never shut up, there is always something new to read on your blog! :) She is the best present ever! I wonder if the other kids could fit in the stocking too, it is huge.

Congratulations Jess! She is beautiful and the best Christmas present ever. I remember the hospital bringing Mason to us in a stocking 9 years ago...crazy huh? I thought it would be fun to put him in it every year to track his growth...but never did. Maybe you'll have better luck remembering.
