Jesus loves you more...

I KNOW.. two blogin' days in a row! Just like old times.. like 3 years ago old times!!!

I made a Christmas gift for Darin this year and I wanted to show it to ya all because I'm a horrible wait-to-give-the-gift giver so I already showed it to him. And I have to tell you about it because I ACTUALLY kept a secret and I knew you'd be proud!!

Every night since DAY ONE of bringing Adelyn home from the hospital Darin has told Adie the same thing before bedtime...

"mommy loves you.. and daddy loves you.. but Jesus loves you more."

And then he adds, "but daddy loves you a lot!" to the end. =)

Darin kept telling me that he wanted the saying somewhere in the nursery because he'll tell new baby H the same thing.

So Tuesday my step mom Susie (an amazing artist) came over and wrote the phrase out on the back of her crib. I did the painting so that all the pressure wasn't on Susie to get it finished and this is what we came up with...


And a close-up...


Darin and I have a little journal that we write notes to each other in the mornings because he leaves at like 6am to get to school and I'm well.. fast asleep. =/ Yesterday he came home to our "sweet nothing" journal with a thank you from me for loving Adie so much and telling her that Jesus loves her even more.. I then had the order to go to her room and look at her crib. Sometimes I'm sweet and romantic.. HA! He loves it. Almost cried. =) He's so sentimental and I love it!

And what was Adie doing while mommy sat inside her crib and painted her phrase?

Well,bedhead, nose picking, "Wiggee" screaming Adie jumped on her matress on the floor but took breaks to throw all her 12-18 month clothing I just put in a box all over the floor!

Have at it, Adie Grace. Mommy got daddy's present done!!!

that is so cool...that way whereever you go with the crib the saying will go too.
