Bath Time






Well, tonight was our first time to bathe David. I knew it wasnt something he absolutely loved because he has to be swaddled at all times and this has made diaper changing quite traumatizing for him. So, he wasn't happy about it. Well, that hasn't changed yet. Poor guy, he gets so stressed about it. Though he has spoiled us to no end already with his amazing temperment, he has also showed his very obvious preference. As long as David is swaddled, his world makes sense. The minute I unwrap him he looks up at me like what on earth have you done. It's kind of funny actually to see him so upset over absolutely nothing. I guess bath time, diaper and clothes changes are going to bring forth whom we have affectionately named Falcon. Falcon or Chirps McEstess depending on how upset gets. His crying is more like a shriek and often reminds me of a falcon. Again, funny.

David Grantham Estess







Beautiful little lovebug! 7 pounds, 14 ounces. 20 3/4 inches long.
PRECIOUS and life changing.

Even though it is 4 AM and I have just finished feeding yet again, I know with all of my spirit that I was made to love this very child. We were made for this and nothing has ever felt so right. More to come after a nap or two.

Thank you Jesus...

More nursery pics....







There are a few personal touches I should mention. The day gown hanging on the knob was made by my mother-in-law. So precious. It has little blue lambs on it if you cannot tell. Also, the Auburn photo is care of my sister who can make all things happen, including having Tommy Tubberville autograph something for your unborn son!! War Eagle!! The two pictures of little puppies were a nursery gift from my mom. They are antique prints and look amazing in there! Also, the post below has a picture hanging above the armoire. It was needlepointed by my mom's dear friend, Bronwyn Cardwell for when I was born in '83. It has Proverbs 22:6 stitched on it, "Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old he will not depart from it." We had it rematted to match the decor in David's room.

THE CRIB HAS ARRIVED





I am much too pregnant to discuss the "adventure" I have taken with Pottery Barn and McCorquodales (shipment company). I have found when you are nearly 39 weeks pregnant, you lose any desire to be nice for the sake of others. Telling the story may get me all fussy and ruin how excited I am to have the nursery finally completed. Just know, the title is in capital letters for a reason. What a relief!!
