Birthday Fun!

Tricia is at a hair salon with one of her favorite nurses (hey Lindsy!) getting her hair done...Lindsy has some wild (but fun) hair...I'm very interested to see what Tricia looks like when I pick her up from PT in a little while... It should be nice for her since she hasn't had anything "professionally" done with her hair since Early January.

Tricia's birthday gift came in this morning after I had dropped her off with Lindsy! She knows what she's getting, but didn't think it would be here this early. She'll find out when she gets home later today, and she'll be very excited as she's been thinking about getting one ever since she found out she was pregnant.

It's a glider (for those who may not know), basically the ultimate rocking chair...perfect for a mama and baby to spend some peaceful time together.

Sounds like Tricia is having a nice birthday. That is great news!
The rocker is a fantastic gift. I am sure Gwyneth will enjoy it too.

The glider will be well used. I'm thankful that Tricia will get to rock her daughter in it. Happy Birthday Tricia. Wishing you many more!

I can't wait to see a picture of Gwyneth and Tricia IN the glider!

Cindy said...

Happy Birthday Tricia! Glider rockers are the BEST. I used to (try to) sleep in mine when I was coughing too much to lay down. PERFECT for a new mama.

Dragonfly29 said...

She will LOVE it! I couldn't sit in my glider rocker enough when my kids were babies.

wyantfamily said...

Glider's are the best! I just got ours back out yesterday ready for the new arrival and I'm so looking forward to it. Colin and I spent many days and nights rocking and us singing to him or playing CD's. It's so comforting just you and your baby snuggling together. She will love it!

China Travelers said...

Tricia is going to really enjoy spending time with Gwyneth in the beautiful glider!! And it looks like you guys were able to get baby gear! I see a carseat base in the background! Its all coming together! I cannot wait for the post that says she's coming home =]

Happy Birthday, Tricia. May is a great month for a birthday. I should know. Mine is the day after tomorrow. Happy Birthday to a fellow Taurean. We are survivors, are we not? You totally rock!

The Mom said...

Those gliders are wonderful, here's to a wonderful birthday and soon wonderful times rocking sweet Gwyneth!

Blessings From Above said...

That is a great gift. Not quite as good as the gift Tricia gave you for your birthday though! :)

Happy Birthday Tricia!

Catherine said...

Cool. How exciting it will be to read and see updates later today. Hmmmm....what would mama look like with Fraggle hair? ;o)

Candi said...

Great gift---and with the thought of Gwyneth being discharged soon, I'm sure it will be put to good use!!

Seth, Jen, Hannah, and Cailyn said...

OH, those gliders are AWESOME!!!! My oldest is 3 now and youngest is 1 and we STILL use it all the time!

Erika said...

Happy Birthday, Tricia! Hope you have a fun day! And Nate, that's a great gift! I just LOVE our glider. I still rock our 18 month old in it every night.

walkingbyfaith said...

Happy Birthday Tricia!
You're a miracle. :)

I can't wait to see pics of Tric's hair and her with Gwyneth in the glider. :)

Amy Lynn said...

That is the perfect gift for Tricia!!! :) She will treasure her time in it rocking Baby Gwyneth! :) I have had mine for 14 years & rocked all 6 of our little ones in it. :) I just could never part with it....too much sentimental value! :)

I hope you two have fun celebrating her special day! :)
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Tricia! :)

Blessings!

Gliding rockers are da bomb! ;)

God Bless

I am so happy Tricia got that glider!!! They are the best. They weren't around when my kids were little - we just had regular rocking chairs, but they are a lifesaver with my grandkids - especially recently when the little girl was sick and wouldn't sleep in her crib. Her Dad and I took turns spending the night in the chair with her...trying to giver her Mama a little rest!!!

Tracy P. said...

The perfect gift! It's what I got for my birthday three weeks before giving birth to my firstborn, and will forever be my favorite piece of furniture. Happy Birthday, Tricia!!!

The Gurnee's said...

YEA!!!! I had to laugh at "Matt's" comment about the white color. I actually thought the same thing but it'll match anything!!! She will love it!!

Seeing your baby and her mama in the new chair oughta just make your heart melt!

And a belated Happy First Mother's day to Tricia!

NuttyGal said...

I have the same chair! She will love it and mine is very light cream and after 8 months is still very light cream so don't worry bout the colour :o) Happy Birthday Tricia - Love n hugs from England XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Jane-Jane said...

My "little" guy is 9 1/2 and still uses the glider for snuggling or to sooth himself. A great many hours have been spent in ours and we still use it almost daily! Happy Birthday Tricia, Enjoy!

Chantal said...

I have a very similar glider, and DD and I have put a lot of "miles" on it.

What an awesome gift!

I'm sure that Tricia and Gwyneth will spend a lot of time in it.

Emily said...

Great pic for a present, Nate! I'm sure she loves it!!

Love my boys! said...

Your girls are going to love that glider! I can't wait for those pictures to post to the blog...hopefully very soon! Still praying for all of you!

Catherine

tripleblessings said...

Oh, yeah, you're all going to put some miles on that glider in the next year or two. With ottoman - it's magic!
Happy birthday, Tricia!

~j~ said...

Awww what a great gift, oh the songs, prayers and cuddles that will take place on that glider! brings a smile to my face just picturing she and Gwyneth there.
:)

Cassie said...

this is a gift that she'll remember for her whole life. rocking little gwenyth - and even big gwenyth as she grows - will bring her such comfort, such joy...she'll have it with her, even when she rocks while gwenyth sleeps in her crib.
so exciting - i saw that it will be very soon when you'll have her home with you. praises to god!
