When I found out I was pregnant I asked my Papa if he would build Payne a bassinet for our room. He agreed and has been working hard on it for a long time now. Well, I wasn't allowed to see it until it was complete which I was told was going to be next Saturday. Though, at the shower on Tuesday night my step-mom brought a card and a gift to me and said open this last. I was really confused. She had asked my what I wanted and I said a breast pump or a gift card to apply to the breast pump. I never thought anything else about it. So I opened the card, a sweet little note, then I opened the present. There was a note in the present. It said, "Sorry your present came in late so I didn't have time to wrap it. Hold on and I'll go get it." Then she left. Next thing I know my dad is walking into the room. I thought he was bringing me a breast pump. (How awkward) Then I heard someone say he has a bassinet! Then I lost it and started to cry. (Kind of like, now when I am typing this). He had finished the bassinet and gave it to me at the shower. I absolutely love it! It was perfect!!!!! I can't believe he built it for my sweet little baby!!! Needless to say I cried and cried and hugged my Papa!!! I can't tell you how much I love it! THANKS PAPA!!!!!
Here are some pictures to show you how the moment went!

Words can not express how grateful I am!! Thanks Papa!
I didn't get to bring it home with me, but it will be here next weekend and I will show you more pictures!
