The nursery is far from done, but it is coming together. We are obviously in no rush, so it is just piece by piece. It is a fun process, though. It is still hard to believe that an actual baby will occupy this space one day...but there better be a baby here soon, because this stuff is expensive:)!
This is a picture of the room from the doorway (forgive the mess with boxes and such). Where the bassinet is sitting is where the glider and ottoman will go (we think). The glider is due to our house this Thursday! I am so excited to have it!
Here is a picture of our beautiful crib. A friend put it together for us, and we are so thankful!
These are the sheets I bought on ebay. I really love the polka dots!!!
Here is the dresser, which you all have seen before. I still love it!
And now my FAVORITE part of the nursery by far. As you all recall, I really, really loved a fellow blogger's, Rebekah's, baby blanket. She designed it and created it herself. It was beautiful! So, with her blessing, I stole her idea:). I tried to change it up a little and used zebra print instead of the cow print she used. Those of you who know me, know that I cannot sew - I can barely put a button on a pair of pants! So, our dear "Arizona Mom," Sheree, agreed to make the blanket for us. I spent about six weeks picking out fabrics, and Sheree literally took 2 weeks to put it together. Her talent amazes me. Ok, drumroll please:
This is the blanket with a close-up so you can see it with the sheets.
The long view.
Another long view, taken from the side of the crib. I'm not sure why it is rotated so weirdly, but you get the picture!
We have been so blessed. We have had family and friends offer to buy certain pieces of the furniture, friends help with the assembly of the furniture, and Sheree made our blanket. This room is definitely a family effort, and I can feel the love in that room every time I am in there.
Also, in case you haven't heard, we got the "ok" to paint in the baby's room, so that will happen once we know if we are having a boy or a girl. If it is a boy, I am leaning towards a pale baby blue (to really pull the sage green accents out) and if it is a girl, we have decided on a pale lilac color, which I also think will look gorgeous with the green. I will post pictures of the glider in the room, once it arrives.
Lastly, we decided to go all out with the zebra theme:), so we re-decorated our guest bathroom, which is across the hall from the baby's room, in black and white! See for yourself:
So, that's the story of Baby E's new room for now! I wish I could say we had updates on Baby E, but our social worker must be out of the office this week, because she hasn't responded to my email. Anyway, let me know how you like the room so far and have a wonderful weekend!
