With an idea from my friend Anna and the never-ending help of my parents, we pulled off a little celebration:
Grandma Lynda brought balloons (with the very serious Brynn):
Brynn continued to be serious while Grandma and Grandpa got stuff set up. She's NEVER cuddled like this with me since I've been in the hospital:
Grandma also painted "30" on the cupcake we shared, which Matt mistook for a belated birthday surprise (he turned 30 a couple weeks ago with little fanfare due to the hospital mayhem). Since I'd only thought it was for celebrating 30 weeks, I guess we killed two birds with one stone!
Here's the final set-up. In case you miss the joke, the ice box is a bed pan--unused of course!--and the "wine" is sparkling grape juice:
Glad you enjoyed it, dear!
Thanks for the great book and being willing to coordinate everything, Grandma and Grandpa!
Happy 30th Birthday to Matt and 30-week milestone!
