Wow... it's been a long time since I posted. Do I have any readers left?? ;-)

I've been meaning to write this post for awhile. I have the most awesome friends and family on the planet. When I first found out I was pregnant with Rachel, I totally freaked out. Taking care of Eric day in and day out was the hardest thing I had ever done, and now I had to do it with another baby??!!

From day one I had people offering to help. I just wanted to say an official "Thank you!!" to a few...

1- My parents stayed with me for 2 weeks when Rachel was born. They completely took care of Eric so John and I could take care of Rachel. You guys are awesome!

2- My friend KC stayed with me for a week in late April, and she was amazing with Eric. She did laundry and let me rest. As I get older I am finding out that my friends of over fifteen years can still surprise me. KC- I never knew you were so good with babies!

3- Karen- for coming to my shower and stayed with me for a few days. We had a lot of fun.

4- Kelly made Rachel's letters, homemade thank you cards, onesies for Rachel, and my favorite- a keepsake box. Kelly, you are so talented. Thank you for everything!

5- All of the wonderful women in my Fairfax Moms' group who brought me meals. I'm so grateful!

6- All of the moms who have come over for play-dates. They have helped me keep my sanity.

I know I'm forgetting a ton of people- my sister and extended family who came to my shower and who call, send cards and gifts... But you get the idea. :-)

Love you! I am so glad that you liked everything. How have the onsies held up (in the wash)?

Would you believe she grew out of the onesies so quickly that I only washed one? lol. But it looked great after!
:-) I saved that one little onesie in my keep-sake box.

Well, it is good to know that it held up in the wash. I thought I was being smart by putting two different sizes in there, but you never know how fast babies will grow out of stuff.
