This Past Sunday

We had a really good day on Sunday. My side of the family came over to celebrate Father's Day. We offered to host it at our house this time. We had lunch together, talked, and my Dad and Steve opened some gifts together. It was really nice.

We're treating my Dad to a baseball game, and we gave him a t-shirt he can wear to the game, too.

I gave Steve a little outfit that says, "I Love My Daddy," a frame, and a little baby book. My parents also gave him some bibs and a little book, and my sister gave him a card.

I took some pictures and as soon I can get my new camera to upload, I'll post a few. We had my Mom and my sister, Janice, take pictures of us outside, too. We thought we should probably try to take a few throughout the summer in case we have to update our profile later on.

I asked Steve how he felt about celebrating Father's Day and if it was hard at all for him. He said that it actually made him really excited to think that our baby is out there somewhere. I'm glad that he and my Dad had a really good day.

How nice to celebrate Father's Day while you are waiting...what great idea! In reading just a smidge of your blog, you are so lucky to have "waiting parents" talks, we would have loved to have had those while we were waiting! ~ICLW

Your baby is out there somewhere, and I can't wait until he/she is placed in your arms. :-D

I'm glad your DH has such a positive and wonderful attitude toward Father's Day.
Praying very, very soon your very own child(ren) will make their way into your lives.

Best wishes,
Anna

Sounds like it was a good time. I can't wait until we celebrate our first Mother's and Father's day! I like the way you think ahead (taking pics for potential profile update). :) You sound like me LOL

What a wonderful thing to celebrate for your future, it's just a matter of time before you'll all enjoy those gifts together.

What a sweet way to put a positive spin on what could have been a depressing holiday. :)

I was adopted and I love hearing this it's so special! It's the reason I decided to be a surrogate, that and my kids are to old to give away now, lol :D
