    I’m expecting my first child, a boy, in a few months, and would love to start off with this basket!

    The special baby boy arriving in my life is Liam Richard. My husband and I are so in awe of what is taking place inside of me right now and how in just a few short months we will have this perfect little creation – a product of the two of us – in our arms. The thought of a little mini version of my husband makes me so happy I could burst. We just can’t wait to meet him and begin the adventure that is parenthood… together.

    I am a new mom of 9 month old twin boys. It was quite a surprise but we couldn’t imagine just having one baby. It is such a great blessing and wouldn’t change a thing. They are my love of my life and they inspire me to be creative while being at home with them. The boy basket will be great! I love all the products you have included in the basket.

    My special gift to come is our second child, a baby boy who we just learned about an hour ago is already a healthy 7 lbs at 36 weeks (I had been measuring small so was thrilled to hear this).

    We can’t wait to welcome him to our home and introduce him to his big sister. He is already loved beyond words.

    My baby boy is very special. He was born with a birth defect called congenital diaphragmatic hernia. This causes around 50% of the babies to die because their organs have gone into their chests and inhibited lung growth. But we are happy to say that after 7 long weeks in the NICU in a different city we are home and happy!

  55. by Brenda Mommy

    On March 11, 2011 at 5:45 pm

    we have had a major spate of births around our company. In 2010 we welcomed more than 10 babies (myself and another had twins) to our growing numbers.
    Feb – Jessica: girl (2nd)
    March: Don’s wife: girl (3th)
    March: Butch’s wife: boy
    April: Brandi: boy (1st)
    July: Brenda (me): boy/boy fraternal twins (3/4th)
    July: Heather: girl (2nd)
    July: Melissa: boy/girl fraternal twins (2/3rd)
    Nov: Lindsi: boy (2nd)
    Nov: Carlye: (my sister in law-but she doesn’t work with us: boy (1st)
    Dec: Joy: boy (3rd)
    Currently: Cristalle-expecting (1st)

    It would be so much fun to win these prizes and share the wealth among so many deserving women.
