I will tell you!
For the past like 2 months I've wanted a glider sooo so bad. I had one picked out that I wanted to order. It was so pretty and the cheapest one I had found! I had been looking on the bulletin board at byui.edu and craigslist...but they were all ugly! Either that or they were almost just as expensive as the one I wanted. I kept talking to Cody about it and explaining how much I want one and he kept saying we didn't need one.
My reasonings included:
-We already don't have enough seating in our house. Having a glider will be so nice, even just to use when company comes!
-It would just look so good in the baby's room! That little corner just NEEDS a glider.
-Most ottomans for gliders (that I found) are around $150! Our glider AND ottoman would only be $140!!
-How many times do you think I'm going to be nursing a day? AND at night?? I dont' think you'll appreciate me bringing a screaming baby into our room 4 or more times a night, trying to get comfortable on the bed, and waking you up EVERY time just to feed her.
-We have people come stay with us not SUPER often, but often enough. If you don't like the screaming baby waking you up every night, I'll have to take her on the couch. I can't do that if we have company because they'll be sleeping in the living room. Plus, I'd probably wake them up anyway, carrying her from room to room. Plus, if I have to go on the couch, it's leather!!! And COLD! Noooo thank you.
-It'd be so nice and so much more comfortable to just pick her up and sit down right away in my soft, nice glider. Ahhh
Cody's reasonings for not wanting one include:
-It's too expensive
-We probably won't use it anyway
-His friends had one and his wife didn't use it
I know..My reasons are way better.
So FINALLY like last week Cody said he was ok with getting one. I was so happy but for some reason whenever he was here I never thought to order it...And I never thought to ask him if I could really order it before he was gone to work or wherever else. So I never got one. I thought of it yesterday and he said I could order it. I told him I wanted to order it right then, but he said no way cause it was Sunday.
(I'm sure you know where this is going)
Today I came home from work and Cody was on the couch. He said someone had brought something for the baby. I asked what it was and he said he didn't know. I asked who it was from and he said he didn't know but he had put it in the baby's room. I thought maybe one of my friends had dropped off a present or something...But thought it was weird he wouldn't have opened it to see what it was. I went into the baby's room to check it out...And......
Ahhhhh!!! Soooo fabulous! He had even written the nicest note and put it on the chair. So sweet!
I grabbed Winnie out of the crib and sat down to rock my "baby." I was so happy!! Look at how pretty it makes her room be
It looks TINY compared to the crib, but it's not! It fits me perfectly!! I love it!!
Isn't he the BEST?!?!?! Love him!
In other news...
Cody and I have started taking walks to get everything going with having the baby. Last night was our first walk. It was really nice, but we decided to go at like 7 pm when it was already dark and FREEZING cold outside. We spent a while getting ready...and be the time we were finally ready I was so tired I had to take a break! Our walk was really nice, though. I have been REALLY sore lately pretty much everywhere and this morning when I got out of bed I didn't hurt at all!! That hasn't happened since before I was pregnant! I was so happy! Maybe exercise really IS good for you! :)
