Our master bedroom has never looked so good!

The other day when we were at my Gm's, she gave us the cradle that my aunt used for all 8 of her kids, my cousins.

The special thing about this cradle is that my Gp hand made a cradle for each aunt, three total, and then the talk was when we (my brothers and I) were old enough and had kids, we would use it.

As some know, and as a refresher, when I say, Gp I mean the man who raised me and my brothers, so much more like a father than only a grandpa.

My Gp passed away from an accident nearly three years ago-it devastated our family but we all find peace in knowing that he's in heaven.

So this cradle is very special.
I've actually dreamt about getting to lay my little ones in it, just knowing that such an important man in my life made it.

Well...the cradle is here...at our house...in our bedroom! I have tears just thinking about this!

I actually bumped into it last night going to the bathroom. And then, there in the dark I smiled like a crazy person! :)

Seeing it makes my heart jump for joy! My Gm said we needed it now because, "if you're about to find out the gender you need that cradle!" ;)

It's a little naked, no bedding, but my Gm is going to make all white bedding for it.

Someone pinch me now...this all seems so (beautifully and amazingly) surreal.

I love the special meaning behind the cradle! Your Grandpa will surely provide your baby with sweet dreams and watch over them at night.

That is so awesome. We have the high chair that was at my great grandma's that my grandpa used and then all of my aunts and uncles, very special to me.
