Perfection

Yesterday was absolute perfection.

I had some morning snuggles with Husband and Pie. Then I took the longest shower in recorded history. I used every single fancy-pantsy shower product I have...scrubs, conditioners, masks, polishers, etc. It was heaven. Then we just hung out all day. We got Pie an inflatable pool this weekend and had the inaugural splash yesterday. She loved it! It's big enough for husband and I to sit in too, so the three of us hung out and splashed and kicked. You know those moments that just overwhelm you...with happiness, with love, with a sense that you are in the exact right place at the exact right time? Being in the pool with Husband and Pie was one of those. Just thinking about it makes my stomach drop a little.

And I got some awesome presents to boot! I got some clothes, movies and Amazon gift cards (woo hoo!). And I also got:

This print which I LOVE. It from Etsy (of course)...a shop called Tiny Showcase. This artist is giving half of the proceeds to the Gulf Restoration Network, so it was a double gift.And I got this necklace with my little family's initials on it. AMAZING. And what a shock, another Etsy purchase. This is from a shop called Soul Peaces.
And best of all, I got lots and lots of gummy smiles, and drool-y kisses from this little love.

Awwww, very cool. Wish I wasn't allergic to silver.

K - She does some work in brass...maybe she'd do a custom piece for you. But Etsy has lots of other family tree jewelry too

It sounds like an incredibly awesome day! That is definitely what happiness is.

Don't give up. It is possible that the birth mother will have another one. I know that mine did.

sara said...

Thanks Jenny! I've got the necklace on today and am showing everyone that will stand still long enough :) I love having a representation of my little family with me all day!

sara said...

Cindy - It really was perfect! Pie has had lots of fun in real pools, but there was something about being able to sit on her own in the water or wobble against the side that just made her a happy, happy girl! So cute to watch!

sara said...

HMF - I went to bed last night happier than I've been in a long time. It was such a peacful day and had all these little perfect moments in it...perfect birthday! Unfortunately our birthmom got Mirena right after the birth. But I'm still hoping she'll fall into that 1% fail rate :) Is that awful of me?

Salt said...

You have an ADORABLE baby! And it sounds like a wonderful and relaxing day full of love yesterday. I'm tempted to get an inflatable pool for myself.

sara said...

Thanks Salt. Yeah...I'm not gonna lie, the pool kicked ass. Pie was ready to get out, but I totally could have gotten a margarita, a book and hung out there for the rest of the day.

Super cool. Can't wait to see some kiddie pool pics! Miss Add is so excited. Don't you just love this time of year?

Sara said...

sara said...

Cris - Absolutely! I love all the sunblock, water-drenched, pool exhausted lovies!!

sara said...

Thanks Sara! I'd been eyeing the necklace on Etsy for a bit...gotta love an observan family!

sara said...

Nikki - I think I should probably get a commission :) between the real world and the blog I think I've sent quite a lot of business her way!

sara said...

Thanks F&O! I'm so excited to get the print (it's been ordered but hasn't arrived yet) and find the perfect place for it. It just makes me happy to look at it.

sara said...

Mrs Gloves - me too! But then again I'm an Etsy junkie, so pretty much anything from there is good with me!

Her Momma said...

Wow, Perfection is putting it.. perfectly! ;) Happy Belated Birthday!

I talk, then you talk, and sometimes I talk back again. It's a conversation! And we can all pretend we're not internet shut-ins who never talk to anyone. Hooray!
