Well, the final countdown is on...
This is the last week of being a family of four!
Baby Parker will make his grand entrance one week from today...that is if he doesn't surprise us and come earlier! We don't have much going on this week. Just a few last minute preparations and celebrations as a family.
I need to buy just a few more things and I would like to clean my house. That way I can come home to a clean house after my stay in the hospital. We have a fun day for the kids planned for this Thursday, so as much as I would like for him to come at any moment, I would REALLY like to enjoy one last fun event with my kiddos!
I have laid out some things for him that I would like to take to the hospital with me, like his special outfits, and the blanket that many of my family members have been brought home in. I need to think about what I would like to take too for myself. I know you don't need much, but I want to have a few things there. I am keeping the camera batteries charged too so we don't miss out on any of his special day!
Through all of the last minute prep work, I have not been feeling good at all. I rarely get sick, but I caught some nasty cold that has lingered for the past several days. I am feeling better today, but still not the greatest. I stayed home from church yesterday with Brooklyn and now her nose is running. Poor girl. I always worry about her when she gets this way. Hopefully she will bounce back quicker than me!
I also have to blog about some extra special blessings Matt and I have received over the last week.
About a week ago I had a sweet friend call me up to see if I was in need of a bed. They were getting rid of a VERY cool loft bed. It is kinda like a bunk bed, but on the bottom is a tent and the bed has a sliding board attached to it! We didn't really need one at the moment, but after Matt and I talked about it, we decided to take it because of course we will need another bed sooner or later:)
It is now set up in Jake's room and is the coolest thing ever! It is very nice and he LOVES it!
I mean what little boy wouldn't LOVE a sliding board on his bed?!?!?
And the next blessing was the coolest thing ever!
Friday night Matt and I ran to IKEA to pick up a dresser for Parker's room. This was a need that we had. We got Jake's from there and wanted to get the same one just in case they need to share a room one day.
So off we went...
We found the one we needed which was $150 dollars. Ugh.
I had made plans with my sister to go to some neighborhood garage sales the next day. Matt asked me how much money I had and said he would go to the bank JUST IN CASE I were to find a dresser.
I told him the chances of me finding a dresser let alone one that matched were VERY slim.
We were almost to the end of our morning and guess what we walked up to?
A sale at a house with THE EXACT SAME DRESSER we bought the night before for $45 dollars! Oh. My. Word.
I was about to jump out of my skin. I just couldn't believe it! I still can't! I called Matt and told him. I know that the Lord had that dresser there just for us!
There is just no other explanation!
Thank you God for being our provider!
