In the mail

Today the mailman left this in our mail box...


It arrived from my friend R. (it was her son's birth that freaked me out back in May) Despite the fact that she is not a DBM (thankfully), she understands. (She is okay with the fact that I wish her son had been a girl)

I love that someone bought a gift for Reid. There have been things for me and things for D, but this is the only gift for Reid we have received. It's a real baby rattle and somehow that makes me feel like someone sees him as a real baby even though he never needed any baby toys. The red stone is red jasper, one of the birthstones for Aries. It seems extra right as Reid means red haired and he had red eyelashes. I think there may be some purchases of red jasper jewelery in the future.

What a lovely, lovely gift. The red jasper is absolutely perfect.

I think I know what you mean about the importance of its being a real baby toy. One of my friends bought G a rattle on what might have been her first birthday. It meant a great deal to me. x

That was so thoughtful of your friend! I would love it if someone did something like that for Jacob.
