Dear Jack,

What an eventful weekend we had in Texas!  We were so happy to see all our family members, first at Grandma & Grandpa Wensel’s 60th wedding anniversary party, then at my baby shower the following day.  Aunt Nikki decorated her house so beautifully for us, and had delicious treats to eat & drink.

Beautiful flowers, cupcakes, & party favors PLUS a clothesline full of clothes for you from Aunt Nik!

We received enough clothes to keep you well-dressed for at least the first 9 months of your life!  We also received lots of necessities, like bibs, bottles, blankets, etc. . . .too many to list here!  Here are two of my many favorites we received:  cloth diapers from Aunt Nik & a blankie from Gran that is just like the one your cousin Cal has slept with since he was just a little guy.

A beautiful, soft blanket & monogrammed cloth diapers

The best part was spending lots of time with family, and seeing their excitement about your impending arrival.

Me, Cal & Nik: Tired, but so happy after the baby shower

When your dad & I got home, we were a little sad to have to leave our family, but happy to get back to NYC.  Time to look forward–to moving to our new home in June & getting your nursery just right before you arrive.  While in SoHo yesterday, Dad just couldn’t resist buying your very first pair of Adidas.

I just can't wait to see you in these!

    Hi, Jack Just read the latest bulletin your Mom put on this site. We are all excited as we look forward to your arrival. I was impressed with the shoes your Dad got for you. Soon we will have two great grandsons– we are so lucky.

    Love, Great Grandma Wensel
