I have been in MAJOR nesting mode the past few weeks! Going through drawers, getting rid of stuff, organizing clothes, painting the nursery, moving Ellie into her big girl room (and today's nap is the first time she is sleeping in a big girl bed!) and going through baby clothes - even getting my hospital bag started. Phew!
I worked on a few word art canvases this afternoon for Landon's room. I chose "The Lord was with him and caused everything he did to succeed" from Gen. 39:23. It refers to Joseph. Landon's middle name will be Jose, after Luis (his first name) and his dad. So this is my prayer for Landon! Landon means "Long Hill" but we chose the name after my Grandpa Saunders - therefore it is special. And he is fearfully and wonderfully made! Joseph means "The Lord will add".
I am so in love with Landon's nursery! I have been going in there often to sit in the rocker and marvel in how things have come together. The little pillow on the rocker was made by my nephew, Peter. It has "Landon" embroidered on the front. It's so cute and fits perfectly! A sweet friend blessed us with an adorable safari theme crib set. I love it! I love having little shelves above the changing table (keeps lotions and creams out of reach of tiny toddler hands) and the cute night stand that my Aunt Gretchen gave us, which was originally pink! The little lamp was a bargain for $8!
The same friend that gave us the crib set also gave us a HUGE box of baby clothes! Another friend gave us some more! So we are really all set as far as clothes!
I don't really like taking selfies, but my sister-in-law asked me for a picture of my bump so I sent her the one below. I'm 35 weeks now and can't wait to meet this new gift from God!!!!
