We had lots of friends and family send congratulatory messages to us for our miracle snowflake baby. No one asked me any questions about embryo adoption, but I imagine they might at some point as things progress. Unfortunately, I was really angry to hear about one of Kevin's "friends" (and I use that term only because Facebook categorizes him as such) didn't congratulate or acknowledge our post, but instead went on his own Facebook status to make fun of the fact that one of the commenters on my announcement said our baby was cute. He thought he was so funny and hillarious. It infuriated Kevin and really pissed me off too.
Unfriended. A forty-something-year-old man with two daughters of his own, making fun of a tiny little baby. Seriously? I had some choice words for him, but I won't say them here.
But other than that, we had nothing but love and happiness!
I also had a friend reach out to me on the side with offers to sew me stuff for baby, and another friend offered to throw my baby shower in July! I am so touched by this, I can't even put it into words. After my mom passed away, I figured I wouldn't even have a baby shower. So I'm thrilled to know I will after all. We are already pinning stuff to a mutual Pinterest board for it. And of course, it will be snowflake themed!
Kevin is still working on the nursery. We obviously have plenty of time, but I think the painting will be done this weekend or next. That's great because we already have furniture on it's way! We took advantage of an Amazon promotion for baby gear and got ourselves a crib and mattress:
