I've spent the last 2 weeks or so organizing and packing and today just started to dismantle Hayes' room. Really a very sad thing to do! She has an almost blank room to sleep in for the next few nights until she gets to her new room this weekend!! She doesn't notice it though thankfully. Anyway I took some things off the walls that I had to share. They are super sweet and meaningful!!
At my old school our art teacher was SOOOOOOO incredibly talented and creative. She is so good at personalized gifts because of this!! She made these letters of Hayes' name for a baby gift and put sweet verses on the back. I had forgotten about each verse until I took them off the wall today. I hope she'll always want them in her room, even when she's big!!
Also, this is one of my favorite things in her room too!! My mom gave this to her for her baby dedication. It's from a place called
in Florence. This girl is so talented and can do all kinds of pencil sketchings in any shape with any Bible verse. My friend Margaret is the one who told me about this b/c she had one for her little boy in a turtle shape. Check out her website it you're interested. She was also at the JL holiday market this year and had lots of new stuff. She's so easy and quick to work with!Simply Written Designs
Lastly, we took our car to get serviced today and ended up staying a VERY long time!! We got in to a fender bender last week on that awful 280 in Bham. We were both fine, it was just scary!! I have never been so thankful in my life for a bigger vehicle and a SAFE carseat for Hayes. I wouldn't take anything for her safety!!
She was so happy while we waited a whole 45 minutes at the Express Oil Change. The men gave her a bucket of candy and she had a ball dumping it out and packing it back up, about 40 times over and over. She gets so zoned out on little tasks, it's hilarious and sometimes very strange to watch!!
