My Mother's coworker Mary made a blanket for each of our sons when they were born -- a blue one for Isaac and a white one for Elijah. I have been meaning to take a photo of the boys with their blankets but being as that requires planning, forethought, balance, precision, organization, and a host of other things I can't even think of right now, I have found myself saying, "Maybe tomorrow" nearly every day. I continue to watch Joia's blog and see all the photos of Moriah in a variety of outfits and think to myself: I want to be like Joia when I grow up!
Tonight I am going to a residency wives hangout night thingy and Elijah is going with me while Isaac stays with Grama and JB goes into the clinic for his second-to-last night of nights. I put Elijah in a new outfit from Becky (which she picked in honor of JB since it says "little explorer" on it). After I put it on him, I thought, that kind of matches what Isaac is wearing for play clothes. This lead to me saying: Maybe I could actually take this photo. With JB and my Mom there to help, we got it organized and a pretty decent photo was the result.
All right so this post got a lot lengthier than I was planning on it being. I write all this to say: THANKS MARY! WE LOVE THE BLANKETS!
P.S. Have to end this post with a BIG-TIME CONGRATULATIONS to Brandon & Kristen who get to stay at Mayo for five more, long, cold, wonderful, years. Great job Brandon!
