Little By Little
Being rather non-traditional, this crib set caught my eye the other day….I love the farm! Some of you will shake your heads in amazement at me, but I've never been a real fan of the traditional "everything pink for girls and everything blue for boys"! Please understand, I WANT Martha and Ian to be as girlish and boyish as God made them to be! And naturally I want Baby to be all that God has planned as well!
I really wasn't sure what direction I wanted to go in for Baby, but when I saw this crib set (at the same store where we bought the crib), I knew I had my answer! I grew up in the country, and if the Lord had never called me to be a Missionary (which I am extremely happy in doing and being), I would have been happy having my own farm! Martha and Ian are both so excited about Baby coming! They are so full of wonderful plans that it seems at times as if they are going to burst! I showed them a newborn diaper today to help them have some idea of just how tiny Baby will be when Baby arrives! It was so funny to see their faces - I should have had the camera at THAT moment - as their little minds tried to absorb the tininess of Baby! Almost every day Martha will ask me when Baby is coming - April is Sooooo far away when you are 4 years old! She and Ian both love to give Baby hugs and kisses - several times a day, and always at night before bed!
