Nursery Addition

And then sometimes my parenting thoughts are a whole lot more shallow....

I was about to order the Ella chandelier this week for Parker's room, but then I happened upon this Shabby Chic one at Target, which matches her nursery decor a little better, I think. It's very similar to this one and this one at PBK but costs waaaaaay less. Yay for Target. I am excited! Here is what it looks like:
Purchasing this for Parker just made the reality of her existence sink in a little bit more. We are really having a girl! She has a chandelier in her room! Yippee! And watching my husband get excited about hanging it in the nursery just thrills me to death. He's so amazing with Jonah, but I am pretty sure he is going to be a great "girl" dad as well. He may not admit it often, but I can tell he's getting excited about some of this girly stuff. Can't wait to watch his bond with her develop. It will be sweet, I know. And he can't be caught too unprepared for "girl drama" since he is, after all, married to me. He's just going to need a double portion of grace for the double portion of drama. You can all start praying for him now. =)

How cute is that? Nothing makes Mommy crazier about Daddy than watching him with his baby girls. My hubbie is SOOO sweet to our girls (as I'm sure Joel will be to Parker), and it is better than getting a dozen rozes or being taken out to a fancy dinner...like... not even CLOSE. Oh, the fun that awaits. And we all love a good drama, don't we?

Autumn has the same one. Every baby girl needs a chandelier in their room. :) I can't wait to see the final outcome of the room.
