16 months and fun nursery finds...

Today is our 16 month LIDversary and we are still plugging along.

There isn't much to say about the wait, except to complain and whine and I just don't feel like doing that today. I do still like to at least recognize the monthly milestones, as it does help to see that we are actually moving forward even though it sometimes doesn't feel like it.

Joe and I stopped by HomeGoods on Friday evening to check out their children's section. They only have one aisle of kids stuff, but there always seems to be a great find.

They didn't disappoint us this time either. We picked up this great wall clock for only $12.99 that totally matches our nursery decor. See how nicely it goes with the wall color?

I've got to give Joe credit for spotting this clock, since it was tucked behind a bunch of other stuff.

We also got this adorable wooden, stacking train. I love the colors and I know that kids love toys that stack. We couldn't pass this up for only $9.99.

Last, but not least, Happy Father's Day to all the new Dads out in Blogville! Hold your baby tight today and remember how blessed you are to have them in your life. Also, I'm thinking of all the waiting Dads today too and hoping your day comes soon to hold your baby for the first time. I know I can't wait to see Joe holding Lauren.

You know it just hit me I never realized. It's your 16 month LIDversary and Tess is 16 months today. Her birthday is the same as your Logged in date. There's got to be something special to that.

Hang in there my friend.

Hi Donna! The clock is beautiful, and the train is so cute. It's hard to find stuff like that in girl colors (my experience anyway), but Joe did a great job. Congrats on the LID anniversary...I just have to believe we are on the downhill side of the wait. OUR TURN will come!

First - happy 16...we've been following each other for quite awhile now, and I can remember when those were single digits numbers. Progress is being made (slower than molasses, but still). You once said "Christie, if you hang in there, I'll hang in" - and I've never forgotten it.

Meanwhile the clock and train are adorable.

Hugs friend!
