Justin and I have been so blessed since we found out we were expecting...not only has God blessed us with a child, but we have been shown that so many care and want to be a part of our first experience. I had put back money over the last few years to prepare for this time and we have not had to touch one dollar of it. Our family and friends have been so good to us that at this point, she could come today and we would NOT need one single thing! Pretty impressive! If I listed every single person that had bought us something, I would probably be typing for the next 5 hours, but I did want to make a note of the big items our family had purchased for us....
- Our parents bought our furniture...the crib and dresser. (Maybe if I knew they were buying, I would have picked out a few more pieces! Ha! Only kidding! Justin and I got exactly what we wanted!)
- My Aunt Becky and Uncle Bill bought our crib bedding and mobile for the room.
- My older brother Alan and his girlfriend Amanda bought us the glider and ottoman. I am so CRAZY in love with that chair!
- My little brother Jake and SIL Sarah bought us our baby monitor. (which Justin has already charged to ENSURE it works right! :)
Dresser (I plan to put frames on it or make a changing table, if needed)
The glider, ottoman and chandeliers
The ladder shelf...each bastet has something different:
toys, lotions, burp cloths/bibs and books
Bow Holder...my cousin Shelly made the framed part and I added the long ribbon
