A Special Store

It is just a little before 10:50, and I know that it could be a lot later because my body feels as though it is. By Friday I am just exhausted. I look forward to Saturdays because I get to rest. Noah takes Magdalena downstairs and cares for her so that I can get some extra needed sleep. This is always greatly appreciated! Although I want to go to bed since Magdalena is sleeping I really feel like I needed some time to be awake but to just have some time to think, finish some laundry, and then, maybe I will go to bed.

I wanted to share a picture of the dress that we bought for Magdalena for the fall pictures that we will be taking next Saturday. Words cannot express how emotional it is to try to find an outfit for such a small baby. It is harder to find an outfit, not pjs, for a baby like Magdalena. They have tons of white and pink gowns out there but very few outfits, and then, sometimes the sales clerk may try to get you to buy a larger size saying that babies don't remain that small for too long....oh how little they know. I have gotten to the point of not letting it make me sad when hearing things like that, even though some times are harder than others.


Before Magdalena was born I was determined that she would have one outfit just for her. It made me feel as though that were the only real thing that I could do for her at the time. My mom and I searched everywhere, but there were few places that had long sleeve preemie clothes, until the day we "happened" to go into a store,. We passed by it and just thought we would see what they had. My mom and I went crazy! Ever since then we have always been able to find what we needed for Magdalena there. I wanted to say thank you to all of the ladies who work there for making shopping easier!
The dress looks huge, but I promise that it is teensy in person!
