Family! Having them is so fulling and rewarding.
My parents live in California but have traveled here several times since my son was born. They call and checkup on him almost every day and let us know they are here for us no matter what. They love being Grandparents.
Thanks to my Uncle Wayne every couple of weeks we get a Macy's box in the mail. Inside are clothes and toys. In today's box were 5 new outfits, a jacket, and two stuff animals... all for BJ. In fact he has sent a box to us every month since we got married (and we celebrate or 2 year anniversary on March 25th) He's even been sending items on my wedding registry that I did not get.
I married into a large family. My husband has four older brothers and two sisters. All of them have been so loving towards our son.
I can't say enough about his parents... My In Laws have been with us every step of the way. When my water broke... in the middle of the night... they made it to the hospital before we did. They share a special bond with our son.
