Today, January 5, 2013, I turn the big 3-5!!! Wow, so crazy that I am officially in my mid-thirties, and there is no turning back! Haha! :)
But truthfully, I am just feeling really thankful and blessed today. I went on a walk this morning (in the rain!), and just kept thanking Jesus for another birthday and for all the blessings He has given us. And I have to admit, I am pretty excited that I will (hopefully...Lord willing!) be having a baby at 35! I have been praying for her since I was 31, so it's time!!! :)
When Jody asked me what I wanted for my birthday, I told him the truth. I wanted him to set up the baby crib! We were going to wait until we got Caroline Faith's referral, but my mama's heart has just been stirring to start preparing for her arrival!
Well, we had a few concerns about getting it together because somehow when we moved to our new house 3 years ago, we misplaced all the bolts and screws to the crib. Not good! :(
This is the same crib that all of our sweet babies slept in, and my sis-in-law, Erin, and I put lots of hours into sanding, painting and distressing the crib this past summer. This crib is a labor of LOVE and has lots of sentimental value, and I really wanted to get it put together again for Caroline.
We ended up finding some screws and bolts at a local hardware store that we hoped might work! So this morning, Jody and our good friend, Mack, (after a jammed thumb and some bloody knuckles) got the crib put together!!!! It took a little creativity on their part and some serious drilling to make it work, but...
Yes, I totally squealed when I saw it! I still can't believe that the baby crib is set up again!
BEST BIRTHDAY GIFT EVER!!! MADE MY DAY!!! HUGE SMILES FROM MAMA!!! :)
