See the little 'keep them counting' lamb clothes?
Mark's parents gave us a lot of baby clothes, a diaper bag, baby care kit and a sling today. It was really generous of them - thank you! I might have been a little overwhelmed, because I've been putting off getting a lot of things for the baby because it's still two and a half months away... but yes, now it's time to start 'nesting' even more.
