I also bought my expected grandson, (due date May23rd) his own crib. I don't think my little Jack will be ready to go into a big bed as he will be just 20 mo. when the next guy makes his appearance!
That makes it all seems so real...Nana to TWO little boys.
I am super excited and so blessed!
Christmas 2013 should be wildly chaotic around our house...but I love it and can't wait!
That sounds like a wonderful day!!

You sound so excited, And I'm thrilled for you & your family =)

Good evening,

Long day at work, I am feeling so sick, my ears are blocked, and just feeling crummy. I went through all the posts, just didn't respond to many.

Good night everyone.

I had a fabulous little road trip to see my sister & niece. We had fun browsing around, and then had a delicious lunch. Then, Aly & I played in the kids area there. Here's a pic of us playing school:

I made a few stops on the way home. There's a beautiful church in Independence, so I stopped for a few photos. Here's one of them..

How far would this be from Made's? Maybe we could make a side trip!!! What is your "greeter's" name? What did you order to eat, or did you drink your lunch, LOL?

Thanks, Seawaters!! Xo

It's the cutest little town, one of my Dad's best friends grew up there. When my parents came to Eau Claire with me to find a home, we drove through & he showed me where they used to fish. It was pretty cool! I adore the both of them!! Good men.

I am the same way, Momnan. I love to give gifts, especially when it is something that I know someone wants or really needs. How thoughtful of you to buy a new crib. That way, Jack won't be "traumatized" by having to sleep in an unfamiliar bed and have a new brother at the same time, two things that can be hard on a little guy! I think you are right about what Christmas will be like this year. I'll bet you all will have a glorious time!
