Progressive Fun

What a great week and weekend! Justin got the baby bed put together and the room is mostly situated. It makes me so excited! First let me give props to Justin - It took a few weeks longer than planned but he worked hard to get the bed and changing table put together. He had to hear me complain about it a lot and he put up with that very well ...all the while he was actually working trying to get it all done. I have not be as patient as I should lately, I certainly appreciate him and his tolerance and continued loved through all of my hormone filled emotions! I'm lucky to have such a great husband but Collier is equally lucky to have such a sweet Daddy. He is a good man and I am thankful for him every day! I probably don't tell him that enough, I need to go do that right now...

Second, I need to thank Mom and Dad for all of their help. Friday night they come over to help me get organized (Justin went Turkey hunting). We got Collier's closet cleaned out, the room cleaned and the bedding put on the crib. It is so much fun seeing it all come together. I'm sure that Mom and Dad are going to stop answering their phone OR coming by since everything I am asking them for various things. Mrs. Pam and Mr. Charles came over on Saturday for the shower and Dad and Mr. Charles picked up a dresser and put it in Collier's room for us - it was a gift from them and we are so thankful. It so nicely completes the nursery and we are in MAJOR need of storage. Now we'll have a place for his clothes and stuff!

I am waiting on my valances to arrive and I need a slipcover for my chair and to find a rug for his room and I think that we'll be done! Wow.

Yesterday was my first shower and it was so much fun. I have such special and amazing friends who hosted a beautiful shower for me. Everything was perfect - I requested a shower with just sweets and they did such a great job...YUMMY! Not to mention it was so wonderful to see and have friends together. I am so blessed to have the love and support of these friends who are very gracious. I got so many wonderful things It was fun to show it all to Justin when he got home today! It makes it more and more real and a little shocking (to be honest) that he will be here so soon. I can't wait, but am still a bit nervous as mentioned before. I will be so glad to see and meet him. I wonder every day what he is going to look like. I pray every day that he is a good sleeper and is a good baby...but only God knows that and with His help He'll guide us through raising this child for His glory.
