of life back in the States.
When we first arrived back in the States we had boxes waiting for us. Online shopping is my thing. I love looking for the best bargain, even if it takes weeks to track it down. Enter these end tables. John graciously put them together on one of those first mornings that we just couldn't sleep in any longer due to jet lag.
There were also Christmas presents awaiting our return. I can't tell you how excited I was about getting pots and pans from my parents this year. Does this mean I am getting old? Perhaps. I am okay with that though. Having an actual set to use makes cooking all the more fun.
And we had boxes in the baby's room. Online shopping for babies is entirely too fun. Cloth diapers, bath sponges, cute hats, hand knit cocoons, swaddlers, sleeping sacks, natural cleaning products... all in anticipation of the arrival of our sweet little boy.
One of the most exciting purchases for our little boy was the much anticipated stroller!!! We got up one morning and put it together, then practiced pushing it around. I felt like a little kid on Christmas morning.
We'll use this bassinet to convert the stroller into a pram during those first months of life. I can't wait to take him on walks in our neighborhood and then wherever life may take us next. It even has a mosquito net for those evening walks (or to keep strangers from plastering their germs all over the little guy!)
Baby Turek's newest little friend came over to play with the grown ups caught up on oh, the last six months of life over a Saturday morning breakfast.
And we hosted a mother's day luncheon for my mom, complete with a birthday celebration for my sister since we were still out of the country on her special day.
I hope that each of you enjoys your Saturday. Every time my little boy kicks me I am reminded of God's miracles. We are always grateful for our time at home... but this summer is definitely the most exciting yet!
