I went to get my hair done (color and cut, woo hoo! followed by a desperately needed eyebrow wax) straight from work this evening.




I didn't get home till about 8:30 pm.





"I finished putting up the chair rail in the baby's room." Daryl casually told me. "Come see."




He led the way and opened the door to Hunter's nursery, ushering me inside. And in I walked to see....




He put together the crib while I was gone!!



I was momentarily rendered speechless as I stared at this piece of furniture. And then a note caught my eye...


I peered in closer to read what Daryl had written. And my eyes started to well up.






And he's not kidding...seeing this crib put together in our house really DOES make this all seem so much more real!


And after the insane day I had today at work (more on that to follow in the next post. It really deserves a post all its own! Let me just say it involves a crazy guy and the cops. Oh yeah), this was the best moment of my day. :-)



Oh and last night I ran to Kohl's with my friend Jessica. I had a $25 gift card burning a hole in my wallet so I bought a couple of items for little Hunter. Kohl's really has some adorable stuff!

I love the note on the crib. And the nursery looks beautiful! I'm sure you're excited to add more and more to it.

The note reminds me of something my Hubby did shortly after finding out I was pregnant. I awoke one morning (he leaves for work before I'm up) to find a note by our stereo instructing me to press play.

He had cued up a song that summed up how he felt about our child coming into the world - a song that reflected all the tough times in his life and how he was planning to do everything he could to give our child what he didn't have as a child.

I sobbed.

Save the note or the picture for the baby book. I still have my note to share with Little Dude someday.
