a present

So this is a little early...

My birthday is August 15. Aaron has known that I really wanted a nice glider rocker for Eli, but never got one. They're expensive and with all the things you have to get for a new baby, we decided against it. number 2 is on the way and I still really wanted one! So Aaron and my parents went in together to get me one for my birthday! I LOVE it!
Even Aaron really likes it! (So maybe that means it won't take too much conviencing for him to get up with the baby??!!)

Even Eli LOVES it!! We had to rock in it together before his nap today. We talked and talked about how the baby will sleep in the baby bed, like Ollie's baby. (We watched Ollie and Lily one day and I tried to lay Lily down in the crib...she didn't like it too much!) He then went on to tell me about how Ollie's baby cried and we had to get her a blankie. Yep...he's right! How does he remember this?

I asked him if he thought his baby brother would cry in the baby bed and he said, "Yes, he will. I'll get him a blankie too!"

This about made me cry! He's going to be a sweet big brother!

Glider rockers are WONDERFUL! We have one in Luke's room. Luke hasn't been a real huge fan of rocking, but he does like to be sung to sometimes. That's always a nice time in the glider rocker.

They are great aren't they? My daughter-in-law wants one too. They are the best for rocking babies.
