The Beginnings of the Nursery

Like I said before, we already have our furniture up and ready, but I just wanted to post some pictures we took when we were putting it together.  We got our crib and dresser/changing table around the 12 week mark.  I had looked all over the internet for an idea of what I might like, but I kept coming back to this crib and dresser.  Turns out it was being discontinued, and I felt like we needed to go ahead and get it before they were all gone!  I knew that this was the crib I wanted for either a boy or a girl, so we ordered it!  I am so pleased with it!  And now that I have picked out my bedding fabric I am even more thrilled with how well it's going to match!  My friend, Brooke, is going to make our bedding for us, and seeing how well she did with Courtney's I'm sure it's going to look lovely!

Here's Trey opening the box- exciting!


Yeah, I don't know.

Here I am with the crib in my bella band days.  Don't wear this thing anymore.  It was great for the first maybe 14 weeks and then I realized how much more comfortable maternity pants are!


Here she is!  EXACTLY what I wanted- simple, classic, but with a modern twist.  I love the color of the wood, too.  You really have to see it in person to appreciate it.  We need a mattress now!  This is not where it will go, but it was the only place it would fit in the room right now.


This baby gurl's world is about to get rocked!


Here's the dresser/changing table with the pad "GramPatti" (my mom) got for us.  There is so much room in this thing for all sorts of stuff.  I love the cubby holes.  I'm going to get some cute baskets to put in them.

This room has a LONG way to go, but this is a start.  After we confirmed it was a girl last week I have finally felt comfortable moving forward with decor ideas.  Now that I've picked out the bedding fabric the fun can begin!

Since we moved into this house this room has been our guest room.  We'll be moving the bed out of the this room and into the office/sewing room.  I'm going to consolidate my sewing "stuff", so we can make a nice comfortable guest room for our visitors.  So...not only do I have to think about the baby's room, but I also really want to have the new guest room looking nice before the baby girl gets here.  My nesting instincts won't have it any other way!

I ordered some of the bedding fabric and I will post a picture of it when I receive it in the mail!
