My little man does love his bed though
After putting together his bed, Josh and I quickly realized that the glider and ottoman would not fit anymore. It was time to sell it.
I can remember carefully picking it out when I was pregnant with Isabel and putting it in her nursery. It was hard to even imagine sitting there and rocking my baby at that time. That became the chair that I spent hours rocking, nursing and praying for my baby girl in as I just looked at her sweet face. Once she got a little older she would ask to "rock rock" after her naps. She would happily sit in my lap and rock until she was completely awake. Around that time I got pregnant with Will. I kept rocking Isabel but there was a belly in the way. I continued to pray for Isabel as I rocked but added prayers about her becoming a big sister and for our new little baby boy.
The glider again became a part of the new nursery for Will. Again I spent hours rocking, nursing and praying for my baby boy. As they got older Isabel and Will began rocking each other and playing with the chair. (there may or may not be some marks on the wall behind the glider to prove this). However if Will woke up in the middle of the night, I still got a chance to rock my baby boy.
I am excited about this new stage in our life with a 3 year old and almost 5 year old but it is hard not to miss the baby stage sometimes too. Luckily Isabel and Will still love to snuggle with their mommy and understand that they will always be my babies!
I had to stop and take one last picture of Will (Isabel was still sleeping) in the glider before Josh loaded it in the van.
