Speaking it into My Life...

A good friend of mine told me YEARS ago that I needed to start speaking our baby into our lives. She encouraged me to start working on our nursery, start buying clothes, and to start picking out a crib/furniture.

After meeting with our social worker last week, I realized that she could call us one day, without a moments notice, and tell us that our baby is HERE. She commented that she's had several conversations where she called the adoptive parents and said..."Your baby is here! Go to Target TONIGHT because the baby will be placed with you TOMORROW!!" How exciting would that be?!?!?

So I've decided to take my friend's advice...FINALLY! The next time my parents are in town, we are going to start moving out all our guest furniture and get the room ready. I have wanted (and envisioned for YEARS) to have wainscoting or recessed paneling in our baby's room. So I am hoping that the hubby and my dad can do that during the next trip.

I've picked out a few designs that I think would be pretty...



I've also decided to paint the room green on the top of the wainscoting or recessed paneling...that way, we can add blue if it's a boy or pink if it's a girl :) Not sure which type of green yet, but I'm looking at crib bedding right now and trying to narrow it down.

So here I go...speaking this baby into my life!!!

My husband says we must throw the idea onto the universe. He encourages me to buy baby clothes as well. The last time he was in France for work, he came home with a huge bag from the Disney store, full of onesies and stuffed animals ; )

That is exciting! I've had 2 friends get last minute calls like that! One literally had nothing and the other had one that came early so I think they were a little more prepared. Can't wait to see your nursery!

When Marc and I went through our hard time my MIL would tell me to start praising God for what he was going to do in restoring our marriage!! I did that and it worked! I think it's a great idea to work on the baby's room...and boy is it fun to do a baby's room!!!
