|New Jammies for the growing boy|
Yesterday we received an exciting box of goodies from Texas. Elijah’s granny was eagerly awaiting the news that the box had arrived because she had sent a number of adorable outfits for our little man. As we have said before, we really love getting care packages. They are a little piece of home crammed into a box, and in this case, wrapped in red paper and sealed with love. Justin’s parents always cover our boxes with the same red paper, so there is something very heartwarming about seeing those red boxes now.
Elijah is growing at an incredible rate. Since returning from the Philippines, we have discovered that a ton of his jammies are too short for him. He is now is 6 month clothes, mainly due to his height, and with his cloth diapers on he really fills those 6 month onesies out.
As you can tell, we literally ripped the box apart to see what was inside. Normally we have a rough idea of what we are expecting, but this time most of it was a surprise.
This box included some goodies for mommy, like the cute Penguin duct tape that you see on the left, something for daddy, and a whole lot of things for Baby Eli. It is not easy to get crafty materials here in China, so any little decorating items are appreciated. I am looking forward to using this tape in Elijah’s room. Justin’s birthday present, from the wifey, was also in the box. He has been wanting an Apple TV for a while, so he was most excited about that. He really couldn’t wait to open it and start playing around. It was his birthday almost exactly a month ago, so he’s been dying to get his hands on his gift. Here is a look at some of the outfits that Elijah received…
The bottom of our box was lined with tons and tons of Crystal light sachets. We love this stuff!
Thank you so much to Grandpa and Grandma Esser for the sweet care package. We can’t wait to dress Elijah up in all of his new outfits. We are very thankful for these red boxes of love that you send us.
