Amy . . .

What would you like to know? I am fun, but crazy. I have a most perfect husband, and 2 cats named Samson and Delilah. We are presently working on adopting a little girl from China and have a separate blog for that. I am a Christian and am working on a better relationship with him. I live in the Atlanta area and love sharing stories with people. I am also a pediatric nurse and I love it! I love to talk and meet new people and I love Disney Cruising

the one where Amy posts about Diapers


So this weekend, we had shower number one and we got something I totally forgot about as gifts. Diapers. Now really diapers are just diapers but seeing packs of diapers did something to me. Its one of the basics for baby care. Seriously, diapers represents a lot. For someone who has waiting so long to be a mom, this made things real. I may be a bit crazy but there are just some things sometimes that remind you of what do don't have and whats waiting for you. To me some of those things are seeing Christmas cards with families on it and the the letters that go with them, hearing stories about birthday parties, seeing artwork on the fridge. Those are not things that make you a parent, but I look forward to those things more than you might know.

So, those 3 big packs of diapers we got this weekend meant more to me that those givers will ever know.

I always give diapers at baby showers. I know it is something they can always use and helps some with expenses!

That is so exciting! And such a blessing too, considering how expensive diapers are!

I love taking a diaper, opening it, sticking my nose in and taking a big whiff! That smell.....if just screams baby to me. More so than baby powder or baby lotion.

Of course, you'll want to do this BEFORE the baby uses it.

Just saying. ;)
