Last Little Bit of Getting Ready

This is my beloved Great Guy, AJ.

















And how he spent his day today.
















For me.


I have been requesting some sort of co-sleeper for the baby, so our baby could sleep closer to us without being smothered. (AJ is a sound sleeper and I often pry his elbow out of my eye!)












Without a pattern and going only on my description, this is what he turned out.












Be jealous O' my friends! He really IS the best husband :-) And on the eve of our anniversary - just in time for baby!!

















Come ON Baby Bug!! We're ready for you now!

That is lovely - and seeing as you are so very pregnant I shall let you continue believe you have the best husband ;)

Oh how wonderful! I wish I had had one of those when my first was born almost 23 years ago!!! Mmm...maybe he should patent it. AJ and Sons could
have a nice side business, me thinks! :-)

Blessings,

What a blessing to have a carpenter husband. My dad was like that. He could do anything from Grandfather clocks, roll top desks, stained glass..
I was seeking that very bedside baby sleeper that you talked about. Could never afford the ones for sale. He did a good job!
When I need something..currently a big spice rack for above the oven..I just go out and make something out of the scraps in my husband's garage. He is busy working and fixing our cars, loving me and our children; and not a handy man! Love him anyway! Thanks for sharing!

I just caught myself up on your blog (I was secretly hoping to see pictures of your new little one!!). I LOVE the co-sleeper. Nice job, AJ! What a perfect little nest for a brand new baby.

I love it! I do not even have a baby and want one like that next to my bed. :) Maybe we will use your pattern for our next little one. :)
