This past weekend we celebrated our 6th year anniversary! Gosh, where has time gone! Each year we have followed the traditional or modern anniversary gifts. This year the modern gift was “wood!” So we decided since we both have everything and more than we could ever need we wanted to buy nursery furniture!
Our cribs came in just in time so we were able to put them together, which was SO special. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve prayed for that day to come. Gosh, it has probably been two years ago but I’ll never forget one day Gannon said, “hey it would look really cool if we had twins to put there cribs in these little cut outs!” And now that dream got to become a reality this weekend!
When we finally saw both of the cribs put together in the room I got so emotional. I just can’t believe we are finally here! But even with all our joy it made me really sad for all the people still in the midst of their struggle. After we cleaned everything up we sat in the middle of the cribs and held each other and prayed. We prayed for the boys, their future, health and then we said a prayer for all the families still waiting. And I can’t even type that without crying. But I have hope that each of you will get to experience your moment like that someday.
It also made me emotional because it wasn’t that long ago we were in that room doing our shots for this transfer. Those days seemed so long, but when you get to celebrate moments like that it makes it all worth.
Gannon made a little video of him putting the cribs together! It’s pretty funny to watch. Mamaw and Gannon’s cousin Elizabeth stopped by at one point, along with his dad! And apparently I have restless leg syndrome because my leg doesn’t stop moving in the video!! But I love that it was Gannon’s idea to make this video. He has been SO excited to get the “Boys” room ready and it makes my heart so happy to hear him talk about all the ideas he has for it!
I guess I should have gotten out of my PJ’s but that’s what Saturday’s are for, right?!
One crib down, one more to go!! It’s hard to tell but the front of the cribs have acrylic on them! It was SO hard to decide on what cribs we wanted. Originally I wanted some from pottery barn, but my favorite one was out of stock and they couldn’t give me an exact date as to when they would be back. They said sometime between July and August and there’s just no way I could have waited that long. But I am so happy with the way these turned out! We ended up ordering these Babyletto cribs off amazon, which ended up being cheaper than all the other stores and had really fast shipping so you can’t beat that!
I love this little nook area! I’m going to make it a little reading area and get a cute cushion to put on the window seat! And Gannon is going to add some can lighting to brighten up the space! I can’t WAIT for the dressers to get here! Stay tuned for a picture of those 🙂
Friends we need some advice!! Where did you find your favorite rocking chairs? This is the only thing Gannon is really set on…he thinks he need a man chair 🙂 And I of course want something cute! So we are looking for a wingback (type chair) that swivels, rocks and reclines! I know it’s basically a unicorn of a chair! But if anyone has any ideas where we could find one or if you have a chair you love let us know!!! We will also have a rocking chair downstairs since they probably won’t be going up to their room for a while 🙂 But we want to splurge on the chair in the nursery since we will be spending so much time up there rocking those sweet miracles to sleep each night!
Want to know something exciting?! I’VE BEEN FEELING FLUTTERS!!! I have been able to feel the babies randomly through out the day, but once I get in bed at night and I can really focus on it I can feel those sweet miracles bouncing around and playing in my tummy and it’s truly the sweetest feeling EVER!!!! You guys, babies are seriously such a miracle and I feel so incredibly blessed I get to experience this process.
To update you guys on our doctors appointments. We had to switch MFM specialists because our original one wasn’t in our insurance network. Stinking insurance is such a pain! Our original anatomy scan was scheduled for today, but we had to cancel it since we switched doctors. I wish we could have gotten to see those sweet boys faces! But I guess I’ll have to wait until the 19th! If you guys can just be praying that the appointment goes well and they don’t find anything of concern. We did the blood test a while back to check for chromosomal abnormalities and that test came back normal. Thank you Jesus! But this momma has a hard time not worrying about anything and everything!!
The sermon on Sunday really hit home and was exactly what I needed to hear. It talked about fear and one of the scriptures they used was Psalm 56:4 and it says, “I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid?” I put this on my bathroom mirror so I can be reminded of it everyday. But it helped me realize that I have to put my trust in God and know that he is in control of these babies and will protect them. My worrying isn’t going to change the outcome. So precious Father, I hand my worries over to you and trust that you are in control of these babies!
Well that’s all I have for today friends, but stay tuned for more pictures of the nursery coming along!!
Hope you all have a blessed week!!
Momma Brown 🙂
