Showers of blessings

What an amazing day!  I had a second baby shower yesterday with all my friends from work. Over the years, relationships have grown so much and I got to make some amazing friends that I do miss a lot now. Some of them are just like family and I know we’ll cherish each other forever. Each of these ladies have taught me something along the years and I admire and appreciate every single one of them.

All the ladies

One of my favorite things from this baby shower were the letters for the quads. I’ll explain. One of the girls (Aunt SuSu) had the best idea ever. Each letter looked something like this:

Dear Lupei Babies,

I hope you learn ……
I hope you love ……
I hope you are not afraid …..
I hope you never forget ……
etc.
So each person filled out a letter, sign it and all of them went into a special binder. I read them last night and the one that touched me the most and several people wrote it down was ” I hope you never forget how much Mommy and Daddy wanted you!” , so true! Of course that one made me cry! These are all wonderful women and I thank them all for celebrating the quads with me!

From there, we went to a restaurant to meet the Lupei family and celebrate my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. She is such a role model and we all love her so much! Her prayers are the foundation of our family and she’s just like a rock. No matter what happens, she’s there for each and every one of us. A wonderful wife, mother and grandma. It was a fun, fun night. And I was so excited to be part of it, I said the only reason I would miss it would be if I am in the hospital. So now back to “my small world”, at home, in bed 🙂 But I am happy! SO happy!! Soon we will get to hold these precious miracles in our arms. Soon our lives will be totally different!

This is just the start of the birthdays in the Lupei family. Most of us were born in August or September. We’ll see when the quads will decide to show up 🙂

Whoever doesn’t believe in fairy tales, better give me a call! Last night was more than a dream come true! I never imagined that my baby shower will be so special. Our family went over the top getting everything ready, every single detail was just perfect. When Oly walked me in… I was speechless! There was a slideshow of pictures with me and the quadlings running on the 2 screens! Diaper cakes (lots of thanks to Andreea and the most beautiful twin girls Kiki&Adi for working so hard on those), even a crib with 4 babies inside, made all out of diapers! I have never seen anything like that before! Our friend Tannya and her Mom did an amazing job with that crib. All the decorations were so cute, I loved the baby clothes that were hanging on the wall -Thank you Lois& Ada, Andreea&Andreea!! We are truly blessed to have such an amazing family, every single one of them worked so hard to make this baby shower perfect for us! Again, thank you guys!! Also, the food and the deserts….Mmmm mmm mmmm! Thank you, to every single one of you that helped out and made all this so special for us!

By the end of the baby shower I was so tired. We decided we’ll open the presents at home, so I can lay down and put my feet up. The most excited person was my hubby, because he got to open every single on of them:) And there were sooo many presents! Everyone was so generous, we are truly blessed with wonderful family and friends! God showed us last night that we really don’t have to worry about anything, He has everything under control and these babies will have everything they need and more!

Narcis's van was packed with presents!
