Pregnant after a Loss

Wedge's first teddy bear :)

My mom's MRI was this morning, so we went out for lunch after and a little shopping this afternoon. We decided to dig deep into the courage banks and go into Pottery Barn Kids to look at a bedding set I like, and they had the sweetest Teddy Bear named "Oatmeal" for sale.

50% of the proceeds go to St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and that is one of my parent's big charities each Christmas.

So, Oatmeal came home with us and is waiting to be loved by a sweet little girl or boy. And I think it's perfect that Wedge's first lovey be from Nana.

(I did have a panic moment and said "Mom make sure you keep your receipt." But I'm not going to give into that, this was too sweet.)

  • Oatmeal is adorable.  And it's great that he's going to be able to help other little ones, as well.  :)

    She's doing okay, thanks. Emotional, and gearing up for Friday. But in a weird way, she was mostly nervous about the MRI (she's claustrophobic), so it's good that at least this step is over.


  • Adorable!  Your baby WILL love it - hope your mom is well.

  • That is precious!  I made a bunny at Build-a-Bear for our baby.  I had a groupon, so I figured I might as well... Very cute!
