This weekend my parents were here and I was hoping we would get to get some things done around the house...things that I can't do at the moment like lift, climb, walk 10 feet without getting winded. That kind of thing.
So, Friday I had my 24-week appointment in Lubbock, and my parents went with us. My great-aunt (who is really like a second grandmother to me), told Mom the last time they saw her she really wanted to get the babies something special. In her words, "something big, something nice, something expensive." Sweet, sweet, and sweet!
I was thinking maybe a car seat, or a pack 'n play. But apparently her definition of "something big" is much different than mine. Someday I'll get there. :)
So, we ended up picking out a dresser for the nursery and decided while we were in Lubbock to swing by Babies 'R Us and see if maybe they at least had a floor sample so we could see it in person.
Then, Monday I had a sorority meeting and was gone for a couple of hours. While I was gone, McHotterson's mom called and said Crib #2 was in and he could pick it up. So, he did and when I got home, Crib #2 was set up and in the nursery! What a sweet, sweet surprise from my hot man! Happy didn't quite cover it.
So, here are some pictures of the nursery...so far.
We will change the paint (went yesterday and got some chips to tape to the wall), and there will be closet doors as soon as they are painted. But the idea is coming together and I'm so in love with it!
Sometimes I'm just completely overwhelmed by how much God has blessed us. I can't explain it, really. I just know how much I don't deserve any of this, yet He keeps pouring His blessings onto us, even as I continue to sin and be so imperfect. I've been trying to choose a scripture to go on the wall in the nursery, and although I haven't picked one yet, this one keeps coming back to me, over and over.
Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
