Preparing for Parker

by Anise Flowers


The first weekend of June was a flurry of preparations for Parker’s arrival.  Thanks to a visit from my brother, the nursery went from an empty room to a fully furnished, cozy, “Snoopy” space. 

Also, my friends, Lois & Shannon, threw an absolutely delightful shower for us.  Shannon made many cute decorations that were later incorporated into the nursery.  I enjoyed catching up with my precious friends and celebrating Parker.

As of June 14th, Tucker is 2 ½ years old and 3 feet tall! 

This past week, Tucker attended a class at the hospital for big brothers & sisters.  He learned how to hold a baby, what the baby can and can’t eat, what kind & size of toys a baby can have etc.  And we went on a tour through the Labor & Delivery unit so he could see where Mommy will be staying in a couple of weeks.

I’m busy nesting at home (washing baby clothes, blankets etc.), running errands, and wrapping up projects at work.  Looking forward to July 1st!!
