Sneak Peak

The sweet ladies at www.twiceasnicelettering.etsy.com made this vinyl verse for baby boy's nursery. Thank you!

I am excited to get his nursery going. ; )

My hot hubby putting it on the wall. I am so proud of him. ; ) I love it!

I chose this verse because it's a wonderful description of how GOD made Reese's life beautiful and is also abundantly blessing us through this little one. As a dear friend emailed, "He is not slow in keeping His promises because He who promised is faithful." I love that this is one of the first things that catches your eye when you walk into his nursery.

We are keeping the wall paint color and chair the same as we had with Reese. They are both a pretty yellow. Bright and cheerful. Zach's room is all blue and brown, so I wanted to do something different.

We're so thankful and humbled that GOD is allowing us to have another baby. We don't have to put the crib away, we don't have to make the nursery into another room and we are able to incorporate Reese's sweet memory into the nursery just as we do in our daily lives. My hands are itching to get everything ready for him, but I'm taking it one step at a time. ; )


In case you were wondering about our hog friend (of course you are!), he now travels with us.
Deflated, of course.
Jason started this, not me. ; )

...Trust yourself to the GOD who made you, for He will never fail you.

1 Peter 4:19

I love that your hog friend travels with you! It is amazing the things I find in my car that Rhett brought! I am sure when I take it to the car wash they are thinking "what in the world?!?".

I cannot read that verse without thinking of Reese - our pastor just preached on it. I can't wait to see the finished nursery - I know it will honor baby boy and Reese at the same time. Still laughing over the hog in the car - looking forward to seeing all the places he goes!

Sara said...

That hog friend is hilarious. Only a little boy would get attached to something such as that. Your nursery is going to be beautiful and I can't wait to see it all put together.

Brittany said...

How beautiful! I am so exciting for you all with the upcoming arrival of this sweet baby boy! I am memorizing Ecclesiastes 3 for school and it is awesome!!

Yesterday I was walking through the store that I work in and stopped to speak to a little boy. His mom asked him to tell me the name of the baby that was with them. Her name was 'Reese'. My heart kind of caught and I was able to just say a quick prayer for you.....

Thanks for the sneak peek!

Katie,
I am the recipient of the necklace that you were giving away. Thank you so much! Anna gave it to me on Monday, and I already love it. It is the perfect way to remember my sweet little Heidi. I admire your optimism as I read through your blog. I am not to that point in my loss, but I hope that it will start getting easier. Thank you for your strength.

I love the scripture on the wall! I still haven't decided on what I want on Caedmon's walls, so I'm proud of you just for choosing something AND getting it up before baby boy arrives!

Isn't it funny the things we do for our kids to make them happy? Love it!

(And isn't it nice when Daddies start things like that and we get to keep them going? ;) )

Sarah said...

I love those vinyls! If I ever have extra money laying around, those are definitely near the top of my list. The verse is so perfect too.

HUGS! ♥

Jennifer said...

That is a beautiful verse! I'm sure the nursery is going to be precious!

Gwen Toliver said...

Beautiful! I'm so thankful that God is blessing you with another one. With each pregnancy, I always think there's no way I can love another baby as much as the ones I already have! And you know what? I've been wrong every single time!!!

What a blessing each child is - and this new one is an answer to prayer. I continue to pray for you Katie!

Shannon said...

The verse looks great!

Mindy said...

Love that verse! Can't wait to see the entire nursery.

Z is too cute, Katie!

Donna said...

Katie,

Absolutely perfect!

Have a blessed Easter!
