I'm so BLESSED....

To have this man...
as my husband! He is so sweet, caring, giving, loving, etc.! For our anniversary we said we wouldn't buy gifts because we went to Portland, but does he ever abide by the rules? NO! He surprised me with this beautiful, thoughtful gift:

Isn't it great?! He did this all by himself and thought of it by himself too. One night when I was gone, he bought some finger paints and had Lily do her hand and footprints on this frame! I loved it. As soon as he gave it to me I immediately started to cry! I don't know why, but ever since becoming a mom and having my daughter in my life I cry at everything! So of course this gift triggered those tears! Just a close up of the top halfAnd the bottom half. In the lower left corner, Lily's hand print isn't so recognizable! AJ said she kept wanting to close her hand with the paint on it and try to figure out what it was! I wish someone would've taken pictures of these 2 trying to paint! I'm sure it was a sight to see! I'm sure a lucky girl to have a husband like him! Now how am I going to live up to this gift and give him something extremely creative?! Oh no!

Thank you thank you! We are so excited!! Thank you for praying! We have this sweet book called the family blessing that has different blessings from the Bible in it so we have been praying blessings over our little growing babe! And we have been praying that the Lord would begin to prepare our hearts to be the kind of parents our baby will need!

What a sweet hubby you have! He is a keeper! :) I made something similar with Jack's hands at Create a Memory for Mothers Day it was a lot of fun. You guys will have fun camping...especially with a trailer! That will be so much easier. Just make sure you have LOTS of toys to keep her busy and lots of clothes cause they get dirty! :)
