Perfect Moment Monday

My parents and both my brothers, their wives and their children came over yesterday to meet Henry and to set up a nursery for us. We didn't allow ourselves to prepare for a baby because of all the mental anguish we had been through. They did in about 3 hours what it would have taken us months to do. I can't express how appreciative I am of what they did for us. They worked so hard, including the kids, and they were all just so happy to meet Henry and stare at him and have nothing but love for him. He is truly home now.

Aaaaaaah. I love the word home, especially in this context.

I have a feeling Henry is going to be the source of countless perfect moments.

Thanks for sharing this one!

What a wonderful family and what a wonderful nursery!! I LOVE the color scheme and how it all ties together. And could there *be* a cuter baby in that crib? I think not. Congrats again!!!
