Photo Hunters BlogRoll

Today’s Photo-A-Day is doing some double duty. The image is of the original changing table that my father built when I was born. Yes, that is the original changing table that my mom and dad used to change the diapers of each of their kids. Then they gave the changing table to my Uncle Dave and Aunt Chris. They used the changing table for their three kids. And now it has come full circle and will be the changing table that we will use for our baby(ies?).

Today Uncle Dave and Aunt Chris came up and brought us the changing table. The baby’s room is pretty much ready, we have to do a lot of wash today and then we will be even closer to being ready. We are very happy and grateful to have this link to my history that can now become part of our history.

  3. Andrée says:

    That is so neat! And your father actually built that; which is even better. And what do you mean by “baby(ies)”?????

    What a lovely changing table and great to think that it was used for you and will soon be used for your baby. What a lovely thing to share with us.

    When my Dad makes something, it is built to last and last. Being about 35 years old it does look brand new.

  6. Drew says:

    Hi Nita, thanks. I will stop over and check out your photos as well.

  7. Drew says:

    Meeyauw, using another name, I didn’t even realize it was you right away. I just meant that we will probably have more kids someday. Not to worry, we are not having twins. They do run in the family but not this time around.

  8. Drew says:

    Thanks Sara,
    I was so happy to hear that my uncle still had this and so happy to receive it back for our kids. I’m always happy to share my Dad’s awesome handiwork.

  9. That’s beautiful! I’d love to have the family piece back! Enjoy it!

    Thanks Becci, You photo is beautiful. We have been busily setting up the baby’s room and are excited to use all the stuff.

    Talk about getting your monies worth, great item to pass down through the family. The nappy tower that is next to it is like one that we used , great fun taking the long sausages of nappies out when its full.

    Cheers Mark

    It has been a busy couple of days around here Mark. I got my calendar in the mail the other day and we’ve just been getting the baby’s room ready. I’m putting up the Green Thumb Sunday post soon too.

  19. changeiam says:

    Wow now that’s truly an original and to think it has lasted all this while and passed on within the family.

  20. Drew says:

    Thanks. And I expect it to last through my kid’s kids as well. My Dad builds things that well.
