Kisses

After we passed court, Seth received a package of gifts that we put together for him. I of course had hoped to give these gifts to him myself, but had to leave them behind with the staff in E in hopes that he would someday get them.

We selected several items for Seth - some with meaning, others just because. In his package we had a blanket that Chad and I slept with for several months prior to court. Sara would tell everyone that "the blanket smells like Canada, so Seth knows what we smell like". We put together a small album of photos of Chad, Sara, and I. We picked two toys, one to help his development (stacking rings) and one just for fun (a little dump truck). I threw in an outfit at the last minute, which he is wearing in the photos (but did not realize that it would be featured in the pictures or I would have picked something with a bit more thought). And Sara made him a special Build-A-Bear that she picked out and made wishes on for her new little brother - when Seth presses the arm of the stuffy, he can hear a special message from each of us that says "Sara loves you...Mommy loves you...and Daddy loves you too."

Last week, we received several pictures of Seth with the package of items we left for him. It was fun to see him with everything.

This one is our favorite photo of the bunch, even though you can't see his face, it is just so precious - he is kissing the stuffy that Sara made for him. I wish I was that stuffy...
