A Cradle for Alex

Originally uploaded by rustyandlaura.
It was handmade by Doug Davis of the Metro Church of Christ in Portland, Oregon by request of Alex' Grandma. It arrived at our house via express mail about two weeks after Alex was born (no, you do not want to know how much that cost). It was reassembled with care by Alex' papa and now stands in our bedroom, ready to rock our son into dreamland each night.

Alex has been given many gifts, and each one is a special reminder of the many people who love him and us. But the cradle will go down as one of the most touching and meaningful gifts we were given. Thank you, Doug and Grandma Mary! I envision using it for all our children, and someday, maybe grandchildren...

Sweet dreams!
