Shirts, Rainbows, and Babies

Thursday, August 19, 2010

Thanks for all the comments.  I took the shirt out of the bag before giving the clothes away yesterday.  And I'm so glad that I did.


On a gives-you-chills note, the brand of the shirt: "tomorrow's mother".  A little apropos, I suppose.

Last night, we went to our local grocery and, no kidding, there was a double rainbow outside.

We couldnt help ourselves from replaying this video in our heads.  I mean, really: what does this mean? :)

 Whenever I am bummed, I need only to look at the eleven and a half month olds in my midsts.  Even something as simple as eating puffs and getting ready for some yogurt is a fun event for them.

And for me too.

What a beautiful double rainbow! And I can't believe your babies are getting so big! They continue to be beautiful. :)

Holy Cow! I cannot believe how HUGE Bobby looks in comparison to Maya!! They are both adorable... and almost a year?!? It's so crazy how fast the time goes...

I'm so glad that you kept the shirt. I kept a gatorade bottle (what I was holding when we found out Gummy Bear died) and also the green sweater I was wearing that day. It's funny what we hold onto when we can't hold our children.

I'm so glad you kept the shirt. The post about your maternity clothes really made me cry. I'm so pleased you kept the shirt in the end. Such a sweet reminder.

Bobby and Maya are so cute. I just love Bobby's expression with the raised eyebrow!

So I am reading along and you say the name in the top and my entire body had chills. God is so good and then the rainbows, perfect.
Love the picture of your two cutie pies.

Glad you kept the shirt. And those precious babies are growing like crazy. Bobby's going to look so much like Peter.

i'm so glad you kept the shirt. and i love the picture! isn't it the best that seeing our lil ones can bring sunshine through the darkest cloud.

as you know someone close to me is prengant again. she has asked for my maternity clothes, such as i have, and i am giving them to her. every now and then it hits me what i am doing. we can always buy or borrow clothes. but giving them away feels meaningful.

Just getting caught up, and burst into tears when I saw that you saved the shirt :) Granted, I'm a little sleep deprived right now and that makes me weepy! But it's always interesting what speaks to and connects with people, isn't it?

Thinking of you honey - xo
