As requested by Jenny… the contents of my hope box under the cut.

Alternately titled: How badly does Alex want a baby?

Alternately titled: How crazy is this person I’m following?

So. This is my hope box.

I’ve been collecting baby-related things for years. After Michael and I started dating, but before we were married. 5 years maybe? Basically I sometimes wander around baby sections of stores and if something is on clearance and is too adorable… I buy it. 

It’s only a small issue.

I have tons more boys clothes than girl clothes.

There is a ton of penguin stuff. Like. Oh-my-poor-future-kids amounts.

In the midst of stuff… there are some pieces that have more meaning for me. This little girl’s outfit is the first thing I brought home that Mike actually got emotional over. (He’s always been okay with me buying things. He thinks it keeps the fever at bay. But this was the first thing that really got his attention.)

Then there are just nerdy things…

Then other things… like things I gave my sister for Garrett, that she’s given back to me…

But there are also other cute things… like these teeny tiny Converse.

And books that aren’t about penguins…

And books that are about penguins…

And then at the very bottom… in a folder… is every single note Michael’s ever written me.
image

And then I added to it the notes that he wrote to me on Valentine’s Day. (How awesome is his handwriting?)

So. That’s my box. Full of hopes and dreams from years past and years to come. For now, everything goes back in, and sits in the corner.
