We also had the first 'get together' with Astoria's future husband, Nathanial, who was born just a month after Astoria. Stephanie, Nathanial's mom, and I decided they would be wed just about the time we found out she was going to have a little boy. As Sara mentioned...at least we know that we'll already love the in laws!
A couple of pictures of them 'together'. The first picture cracks me up because it looks like she's checking him out, haha!
I guess you could say the first 'date' went well!

Once upon a time, there was a child ready to be born.
So one day she asked God:
"They tell me you are sending me to earth tomorrow, but how am I going to live there being so small and helpless?
"So God replied, "Among the many angels, I chose one for you. She will be waiting for you and will take care of you."
"But tell me, here in Heaven, I don't have to do anything else but sing and smile, that's enough for me to be happy."
God stated, "Your angel will sing for you and will also smile for you every day. And you will feel your angel's love and be happy."
"And how am I going to be able to understand when people talk to me, if I don't know the language that men talk?"
God replied, " Your angel will tell you the most beautiful and sweet words you will ever hear, and with much patience and care, your angel will teach you how to speak."
"And what am I going to do when I want to talk to you?"
God said, "your angel will place your hands together and teach you how to pray."
"I've heard that on earth there are bad men. Who will protect me?"
God stated, "Your angel will defend you, even if it means risking its life."
"But I will always be sad because I will not see you anymore."God stated, "Your angel will always talk to you about me and will teach you the way for you to come back to me, even though I will always be next to you."
At that moment there was much peace in Heaven, but voices from earth could be heard, and the child, in a hurry, asked softly:
"Oh God, if I am to leave now, please tell me my angel's name."
God answered, "Your angel's name is of no importance; you will call your angel Mommy."

I found the cutest tutu at Third Monday Trade Days in McKinney and we had to sport the new look for the camera. She loved running her fingers through it and kept trying to eat it as well.
