Seriously – Jacen’s grandparents are awesome! Cherie and Amelia were here in late April. At that point in time, Adam and I had definitely started thinking about the nursery, but that’s as far as things had gone. We figured we had two and a half months left – not less than one month. Well, Cherie and Amelia showed up and painted (I’ve already posted those pictures) and then bought us a ton of stuff. Jace looks adorable (and tiny) in his crib with his cute bedding (THANK YOU CHERIE!) and sleeps in his pack ‘n play every night (THANK YOU AMELIA!). Plus, we use the changing table and diaper genie they bought us a zillion times a day (THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!).
My parents came to visit 10 days ago. They thought they’d be hanging out with us at home and driving me back and forth to the NICU while Adam worked. Then Jace exceeded everyone’s expectations and got released from the NICU earlier than anticipated. So my parents cleaned our house, bought all the items left on our “we need these things before the baby gets here” list, and built all the things we hadn’t assembled yet…. Jace and I love the glider, Adam and I really appreciate you guys setting up and programming the AngelCare monitor, and Jace loves his swing. THANK YOU BOTH SO MUCH!
So, in conclusion, Jacen is pretty darn lucky when it comes to grandparents!
