Can you tell I am emotional? There are TONS of thoughts going through my head right now, and I won't burden you with most of them. We really are super excited and Oh, so ready! I will say that we covet your prayers this next week, and especially at noon, on the 5th. One week from today! Yippee!

This morning Tobin's Mimi (Tony's mom) and Mamaw(Tony's Grandmother) came to visit us for a while. They brought yummy barbeque for lunch, checked out the baby's nursery, and played with their adored grandson. Tobin is the only grandchild, which means he gets his share of spoiling. I took a few videos today because every moment is treasured and remembered, but only few are captured in time. With that said... here are two videos I took today. One is much longer than the other. We miss you already, but know we'll see you soon! Thanks for coming to visit us today! We love you!
Tobin has not been feeling well, lately. He has been fighting some sort of virus. He is doing much better now. For a few days, all he wanted to do was lay around and watch TV, or sit and stare into space. I guess a few days of Noggin and Disney movies won't kill the kid. Anyway, yesterday he wanted to color so badly! I know he was definitely feeling better. We picked out a couple color sheets from the computer to print off, and he colored for a long time! I guess it was sort of a "color" kind of day- too cool to play outside, too tired to run around inside. I love days like this!

We have received many things in this room for no cost to us at all. For everything we received as a "gift" they will have "free" next to them. I will try to let you know all the details!
View from door when entering the room.
View from changing table.
The little shelves were blue and in Tobin's nursery. We painted them white, antiqued them, and painted the inside the same color pink as the pink floral fabric.View from other corner of room.
Glider and Ottoman were FREE. I covered the Ottoman with the pink floral fabric used throughout the nursery. I sewed the valance with the same green/gold strip fabric we used to add on to the bottom of the bed skirt. My mom made the pillow using all the fabrics in the room.
Corner between closet and crib. This little table was FREE. We painted the inside of the shelves pink to match the fabric in the room.
So, there you have it! The room is ready for baby- besides a few little details we are still working on. Hope you enjoyed the tour! Let me know what you think!

This year... Our family of three will become a family of four. We will find out what life with two kids is like. We will introduce the first granddaughter to both of our families. Our baby boy will turn three. Tony and I will be married 5 years. We will continue to serve and follow the Lord with all our hearts, and have faith that he will provide all of our needs. We are excited to see what else God has in store for our family this year. Goodbye 2008! We welcome you, 2009!
To you and yours,
May your 2009 be truly blessed!
