A CHRISTmas gift from the grandparents!

Yesterday we mailed out our second package to our little man. But this time, the gifts were from Max's grandparents! They all wanted to make him a very special part of Christmas this year. There will be lots of gifts around the tree for him that Stephen and I will get to enjoy opening, but they wanted to make sure he got a little something to open himself. Isn't the t-shirt awesome (it says "My Mom & Dad)?! We weren't sure if the staff would allow him to wear it or not, so we had two made just in case and that way he'll have one here at home as a keepsake. We also made sure to include a football for him. Stephen is soooo excited to one day share his love of the game with Max. I can't wait to see the two of them tossing the ball around in the backyard (make it soon Lord!!!) We all know that Max may never remember receiving these gifts, and that there is very real chance that they may all get lost in the shuffle at the baby's home and not return home here with him, but that's okay. We want Max to know when he looks back at this blog, that his WHOLE family loves him beyond belief and that without a doubt he is a very real part of all of us. We are SUPER excited and finding comfort in the hope that this should be our last Christmas spent apart!!!!
