late night seranade


Last night after my mother and I finished making (adorable!!!) curtains for Evaleigh's room, John came in to her room to join us.  We all sat in there and marveled and dreamt about what the future holds and what that room will hold.  We said night time prayers together and then mother went down to bed.  After she left I asked John if he would get out Hannah and play some music for me and EJ.
This was my first request.

I love playing and singing music together, it is one of my favorite things about our marriage.
I sat and watched him in awe.  I wanted to soak in every thing about that moment through all of the pores of my body. I have very much enjoyed cherishing all of the last moments before 'we two' become 'we three'.  Part of me wanted to freeze that moment, but I know what is ahead will be ever sweeter.  The anticipation of all of the changes that are before us are a little scary and intimidating but John has never once seemed anxious.  I ask him if he has any fears and he always replies, "No, I'm ready!"
This man was made for fatherhood and I can't wait to see it on him.

John likes to make me cry sometimes.  He knows just how to get me.  Last night he played this song for me and I tried everything I could not to let the tears drop down my cheeks but that is just an irrational thing to expect from a pregnant woman when you play a song like that.  EJ and her daddy are going to be so close.  It's hard to believe that I will get to see them together in 5 days.  Be still my very pregnant heart...

what a beautiful evening you shared together :) And you're doing to the right thing to soak up every minute with it being "just the 2 of us"...I cherish memories of Adam and I before our sweet son joined our family. But yes, what comes next will be incredibly sweet and will make you fall in love with your husband even more <3 Just imagine, your sweetheart playing the guitar and singing to your little EJ, making her coo and smile...that'll make your heart melt into a puddle for sure :)

Ahh! I can hardly contain my excitement for the two of you. AND I just can't get enough of that beautiful nursery. Rachel, you and John are so lovely and kind and talented, and Evaleigh Joy is one lucky little girl.
