Happy President's day to Us!

Nothing says Happy President's day like a new recliner.  Unless of course that is two new recliners.
K, so I may not fall prey to the Valentine's commercialism, but a good deal on new furniture was just too much to pass up.  And there is good reason behind it too.

I may not have any children, but I'm not altogether clueless when it comes to comfort and essentials to raising children.  As we've been waiting to be chosen by a birth mom, we've made a list of "essentials" that don't cause too  much heartache if the wait is longer than expected. 

Let me explain.  If we were to go out, buy cribs, swings, baby curtains, and other things to make a nursery, then it has a fairly large chance of causing more pain than excitement in the long run.  While there is hope of "if we build it, he/she will come" we do have to be realistic.  We aren't entirely unprepared though.  We do have some money set aside so when we get the call, we've got the funds.

However, there are a few things that we can enjoy right now that are in all reality a preparation for the baby.  Like a comfy recliner that lends itself quite nicely to rocking a baby to sleep when the time comes with no heartache involved while waiting.  See, there is method behind the madness!  Meanwhile, we get to enjoy... as you can see, it didn't take long for David to enjoy.

Happy President's day!!


  1. We LOVED our leather recliner when Sammy was a baby. So easy to clean the baby puke off of, too. And David looks so comfy, practicing those baby naps!

  2. wow...can you call a chair yummy looking?

  3. Yes, I think that was a very good choice. As far as waiting goes, that looks like a good place to do it.

  5. It looks like you are learning how to baby your baby...... I wish someone had told me that recliners that don't rock are just great big fat pieces of furniture that don't fit anywhere in your house.
