I know I've mentioned all the amazing maternity clothes that I got from a couple of friends, but I cannot even tell you guys how much we have been blessed in the past few weeks.
First of all, the scripture this weekend at church was Matthew 6:25-34 with verse 26 saying: "Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they?" I've mentioned this before when we first found out that we had been pregnant with twins and Ben panicked, but, even now that we have a singleton, getting ready is not easy. That entire scripture is great to me because it is SUCH a reminder that there is nothing to be anxious of, to fear. God WILL take care of us. I know we've gotten this far because of him, but trying to get ready for a baby is overwhelming too! There is A LOT you need (and want)! But, God never fails. He will always provide!
Last weekend I went to a very good/long time friend of mine's house and she basically gave me a baby shower from her attic! Dr. Brown's bottles, pack'n'play, a car seat, bases, play centers, changing pad, diaper genie, etc! She's letting us borrow so much stuff long term too and she's not one of those people that you are scared to borrow stuff from :) This could not be a bigger blessing to us!
This is a terrible picture below, but its a few of the items we have waiting to go into the nursery. Do you see those Dr. Brown's bottles in the corner?? 18 of them!
Now we just need to paint and get junk OUT of the nursery to put these fun items IN :) (Don't worry, I took before pictures to hopefully pair with some much better 'after' pictures sooner or later.)
I did pick out a paint color. Can you believe it? ME, yes, I picked out a paint color. It helped that I asked my dad to pick one out too and out of the thousands of benjamin moore paint colors we picked the EXACT same one!!! I think that was God keeping me from stressing too much over a paint color. Because he knows I would!
Here were my final choices: Kingsport Gray, Ashley Gray and Gull Wing Gray. I wanted a color that would blend with our other 'gray' rooms well.
