meganxallen One of my favorite vintage finds for Miss Rosa's room. On a Sunday after her due date, @nickallenphoto and I went shopping and somehow I stumbled upon this vintage children's book with our daughter's name on it. 6d

meganxallen Only three days ago we left the hospital to bring home our baby girl. This simple act had so much weight for me. To bring home a biological baby is a miracle we weren't sure we'd ever experience. As we drove we played songs that ministered to us when we were in the midst of infertility. I pray that Rosabella would continually serve as a reminder to us that Jesus was enough for us in a time of darkness. 1w

meganxallen My heart is overwhelmed with joy today. I am beyond blessed to be called this man's wife and best friend.
So many roads and trials we have walked through hand and hand with Jesus as or guide. It hasn't always been bliss but we grew stronger together and leaned on our Savior as our only hope. Thankful for the next chapter of becoming parents!

Happy 6 years my love.

meganxallen Baby room detail part 3: // Found these tin banner flags at my store @bellapatinakc and then had the idea to have some words written on them. I wanted the words to have meaning, but also aesthetically look cute. So I had @galenation hand write some Italian words on them. These two are Redemption and Grace. Banners of what I pray my daughter would experience in this life. That she would know and love Jesus and experience His unending grace to her in the same ways I have experienced it. 3w

meganxallen Before my Grandma Lula passed away, she began knitting a pair of socks for a baby girl. She told me how she had planned to get better at knitting before I had my baby. At the time I thought it was sweet, but I also believed that my first child would be a boy. But she knew better than me. Now these socks, still connected by thread to the spool are left unfinished to be displayed in my daughter's room. Three years ago today she passed and now we are only days away from meeting our daughter, I wish she could be here to hold her when she is born. 1mon
