I have been absent for way too long! I have a new project. We sold Aaron's crib and the dresser with a hutch today. They never were my style but they were an excellent deal from my brother. We bought this dresser to replace it. One drawer needed repaired and the top piece had to be put back on. We are picking it up tomorrow. It would be too much labor to refinish it (what husband wanted) so, I am going to paint it navy blue and distress it.
The second hand store we bought this from is really creepy and dirty but things are very cheap! I'm glad my husband had the day off to go with me.
I can't tell you what time he was born or any details of that day because I wasn't there. The first time I held Aaron was a warm September afternoon. We got the call earlier that afternoon that after a long interview process, we had been selected to become Aaron's adoptive parents. We went to the store his foster family owned and his foster dad called and arranged for Aaron to come meet us. He brings so much Joy to our lives! He is uncertain about getting bigger. This morning he told me he was almost big like me and then he said he wanted to stay little. He is excited to have his first non-family birthday party.
