we're pretty good at waiting. so, while i got upset (fired up) about it, worried about it, and hoped we were not out half of our rocking chair money, we waited. then, this week was the date that the chair was due to be complete. i checked on wednesday and the company website was still online. good news. then two days later i got the phone call that our chair was ready for pick up and that we just needed to pay the remaining balance and come get the chair. the owner told me that the store had actually closed last saturday. (if i had known this i probably would have lost it.)
we made arrangements for will to pick up the chair on friday on his way home from work. luckily he got home right after a huge rain storm and we were able to get the chair inside before we had to run out to his follow up mri appointment last night. the chair fits perfectly beside the cradle and will confirms that it has excellent rocking form. he tested it out with a pillow posing as a baby.
amelia thought it was a lovely place to pose for some photos. i entertained her notion and snapped a few shots of her before she and daddy played catch this morning.
