We did what!?

It took us 29 weeks and 2 days to find the courage to order CC's crib. But we did it, well we ordered & Grandpa & Nana actually bought it for CC. We all went after church to make the big purchase- I'm sure the Babies R Us girl thought we were nuts with all 5 of us there making such a huge deal of it. I guess it was just more of an emotional thing than anything else. It feels real now, like really real.
And since it comes in 14 days, looks like we can put it together just in time for this baby shower to happen. I might actually get to know what it feels like to nest and set up a nursery! Well, with our luck we will get our closing date on our new house right AFTER we do all this. Honestly, I am hoping that's what happens, I think it's going to take setting everything up for the bank to finally get it's act together. Sigh.
Chris had fun shopping today too, he was going nuts finding mini me outfits.
And he found this little gem since a certain group of my friends call me a space cadet. I don't deny, I embrace it.

I had an even better night tonight at the Mary Beth Chapman tour, but that's a blog post for another day. Too many emotions to sort out through my head in order to make any sense in a blog post. But if anything, tonight was about Choosing to See.
To be continued...

It took at least until 30 weeks for Max's pregnancy to start seeming real and even then it didn't a lot of the time. So glad you're buying stuff and enjoy the nesting and shower - you so deserve too. Maddie x

You guys look great shopping in BRU!! So excited for everyone!! I love the photos of you both checking out the clothes too. Can't wait to read about your Chapman family Chronicles too. I saw them here in NYC on 9/11 & it was honestly the best night of my year.

I found your blog last week sometime and have been reading & catching up from the beginning, so this is my first time to comment. What a beautiful story of faith, love, & one sweet little fighter boy.

I love that you bought CC's crib and I can't wait to see it!
