See, look, we gave you your own room and everything.
|A room of your own!|
We even painted for you. Well, your dad did. He painted the floor so it'd be smooth and clean, and he painted all the trim too, and even touched up the walls with what we thought was the same color but it's only a little off so you shouldn't mind too much. It's the only paint we've put to wall in this house, and our bedroom has sponge-painting in it and the walls are all slightly different from each other, so this shows how much we love you. We painted for you while we fall asleep resting against sponge painting.
|We hope you like the colors.|
We hung up photos of some of your family and some paintings from your cousins in Ohio. You'll meet them some day- but only if you come out!
|I potted you up a baby spider plant, too,.|
|Watch out for that giraffe- it squeaks.|
|Best twenty bucks I've ever spent in someone's barn, this dresser.|
There's also the rug your Pa and I rather agonized over, for you. It's thick and soft and made entirely of wool.
Though we plan for you to sleep with us in our big bed, we also bought you your own little bed, which is a tiny version of our bed, complete with a tiny version of our bed frame we built for your tiny bed.
|I even bought you a pair of new sheets from the store and everything, in those light ever-so-stainable tones I seem so found of.|
I made you a mobile to hang above your bed. I really wanted a mirror on the wall by your bed but I haven't found a reasonably priced acrylic mirror yet. I haven't given up yet though, kiddo!
|And I'll put up new things once in a while for you, too. It'll be fun! Come on, you know you want to check it out.|
|With my |
I'm so ready to read books with you and show you all the cool stuff there is out here.
|We'll start with the animal kingdom, it seems.|
|You'll enjoy doing more than chewing on them in due time.|
|A variety of toileting options!|
