This Wednesday, Mommy turned 38 weeks and 31 years old all on the same day. Daddy and Beignet woke me up and announced that there were several birthday surprises in store for me. When I went into the kitchen, Daddy had a bouquet of balloons and a bouquet of flowers waiting to greet me. On the kitchen counter he had two beautifully wrapped gifts. The first was a Flip camera. I was so excited to have something that we can use to record all of your special moments. The second box contained Mommy's push/birthday/likely every other holiday gift - a lovely baby bag. Daddy was so excited about showering you and me with treasures and with love on my special day.
Just when I thought I had opened up all of my gifts, Daddy said that we had to go upstairs. As I walked into your nursery, I found the most wonderful surprise. Daddy had had a handy man come by and hang up all of your drapes. He also ordered the chandelier that matched your furniture and had that hung as well. You wouldn't believe how much those two things make your room come alive. We spent the next 30 minutes just sitting in your room talking about how excited we are to know that you are going to be joining our family any day now. I cannot wait to bring you home and sit with you in this special place that Daddy made for us.
I love the chandelier!!!!
Baby A's crib
The dresser/changing table
The glider with Beignet standing guard
Baby A's sleep sheep and horsey toy chest
I think the Moses basket will make the perfect place to store stuffed animals!
Quote of the morning from Daddy: "That looks like a nice place to put a dirty diaper." I love it! I think it'll be the perfect match to our red stroller!
There's only one more gift left to receive, and that's you little one. We cannot wait until you arrive!!! It is all we think about and all we talk about each and every day. You have the best Daddy in the whole world, and I look forward to the day when we get to celebrate your birth.
Lots of love, and we'll see you soon!!!!
Mommy and Daddy
