Friends & Bed....but not friends in my bed

First things first. Please keep my friends Christy & Billy and their twin babies (in utero) in your prayers. Christy is 32 weeks along and one of the twins water broke yesterday. I talked to her this morning and they have stopped her contractions and babies and mommy are doing well resting in the hospital. Currently, the babies weigh 4lbs and even if they were to deliver today (which we need them to stay in there and bake a little longer) they would be strong and only have to stay in the NICU for about 4 weeks. So in your prayers please pray for my friends who have been wanting and waiting for these babies for years and years. Pray that they all stay safe and healthy and for the knowledge of the doctors by their side.

So the title of my post is "Friends & Bed....but not friends in my bed." Technically there is a friend in bed, Christy. Just not my bed.....or Hill's new bed!

My sweet little babe has a place to lay his weary tiny head now. It looks black in the photo, but it is a dark brown - Espresso to be exact. I couldn't sleep last night so put it together. Two hours and one extra screw later....this is the final product. I love it! I put his little music / light thing on the side and his stuffed animals in there to keep the bed warm until he gets here. I probably need sheets on his mattress before I go putting him in there though. I feel a like a weight has been lifted since the bed is now ready. Everything is seemingly falling into place.

Since Christy scared me with her preterm water breakage she gave me good advice that will be my new mission. Pack your bag now, it doesn't matter how far along you are. Also, she said not to forget to pack Chip a bag too! I never would have thought of that, how selfish of me. She forgot to do that for Billy and so in all the hustle and bustle he's made it to Houston but with no change of clothes or toothbrush. She said he asked, "Where is my bag?" Poor Billy he's such a sweetie.

Speaking of sweetie. My Chippy comes home today. We both have really long days on Thursdays. I don't get home until 8:00 after teaching my class and he doesn't get home until about 10:30 or 11:00. Can you believe that tonites class will conclude week 5 of the 6 week class? Only one more week and I can reclaim those extra 6 hours a week that I feel like I really need at this point. Maybe this new found time will allow me to complete my nesting quicker and be able to relax. Yeah, right! Who am I kidding? There is always something to do around the Hawkins house. If not, I'll invent something or re-re-re arrange something again.

Productivity 24-7......that's how I roll.

Love the bed! Can't wait to see pictures of it all decked out in the bedding. Cannot believe you put it together in the middle of the night. At least you are being productive even when you cannot sleep.

I'm extremely pleased with the bed (even after my pregnant lady temper tantrum to Target)!
Hill has a great room and I will for sure post pictures of the final product, Leah....only after Lindsey helps me with her creativity!
