A little boy's room

Another print.

Little red chair that was Dan's when he was a little boy.

William's new bed.

Will's room is just about finished. He has a new bed, dresser and bookshelf. I still have to put some sides on the bed so he won't fall out. Either Dan or I will sleep with him for as long as it's necessary to help him transition. We're going to be very flexible. I switched some things around in his room that was formerly for a little girl and those girl things went into Grace's room. He has a new quilt with cars, trucks and other vehicles on it. He also has a cute little rug with a roadway on it for him to drive small cars on. Grace has already been playing on it. His clothes, a swimsuit, PJs and blankets are washed, folded and in the dresser drawers. I told my friend Ashley that the other night I was putting his clothes and things away in his dresser and had a flashback to doing that many years ago for Nicholas and 5 years ago for Grace. All things we do to get ready for our children. Somehow I feel his presence very close to me right now in his room, can't explain it but I do. I imagine hearing Will laugh, see him playing with his toys, holding him, tickling him and just loving him so much. We're all ready for his arrival.

Gail, his room is beautiful! He is going to feel so safe and so loved! You are in that nesting phase, and isn't it delicious!?! Pretty soon, your little guy will be home, and you'll be tucking him in with hugs, kisses, and snuggles! Your dreams will be so sweet!
