Take Good Care of My Baby

Today was care package day.  I went to the store, picked up 2 cartons to wrap, pack and get ready for FedEx to bring a care package to my girl in China.  Among her goodies, are a tye dye tee with matching hair barrettes, a long sleeved pant outfit, an uber-soft pink toddler sized blanket, 2 pair of socks, a disposable camera with her name on it and Raffi the pink giraffe I have been sleeping with for the past few weeks.  Lastly the infamous photo album filled with pictures with corresponding Chinese characters.  The second box is being sent on behalf of "grandma" and contains hand lotion and sweets for the nannies and new baby hats, socks and a dozen infant rattles and other toys for all the other children.  After all, we couldn't have peanut's friends be upset that she was the only one to get a present.  I hope they like everything.

Oh I love it!! I've been looking for a little book like that to put pics in too, never have found the right one! You look fabulous, mom, and that more recent pic of your baby girl is awesome! Show us more ;O)
