Nursery Tour

Our baby's nursery is almost done.  Yes, I know mamas.  He probably won't spend much time enjoying all the little details.  Maybe this is more for me than him.  It is a testament to how excited we are have him around.

These are two of the frames above his crib.  "I Love Everything About You" was a free printable online that I colored with colored pencils.  The mountain pic is a bunch of triangles cut from some magazines I had laying around.  The lattice frame was a $5 deal at Saver's!  Double heart thrift stores.

Timmy Mouse, Hello Rock, Poky Little Puppy - All books I had memorized and could "read" to my gramma back in the day.  Timmy Mouse even has my mama's handwriting in it from when she was a little girl.

Baby's first outfit and freshly washed blankies.  All ready to go.

Baby's crib.  Mark thinks polka dots are too feminine...  I beg to differ.  They are blue, people.

This is an unfinished wall.  I need some cute fabric scraps for the embroidery hoops.  Anybody have some?  I'm digging through Mark's baby trunks to find cute things to put on the bulletin board.  Stay tuned, friends.

I found this picture at a little vintage store.  It is an old paint-by-number and it reminded me of the Dawn Treader ship in the Narnia books.  Here's to little boy adventures on the high seas!

My gramma made the brown corduroy teddy bear years and years ago, and my mom made the two others.    And, side note, I am praying our baby will love to read books.

There it is!  Baby, we are ready for you to come!  Hurry the heck up!


  1. I bought a navy blue lunch box yesterday with white polka dots. Lance said that polka dots were girly. Whatever husbands.

  2. If you diligently read to him before any sleep (night time/nap time) he will learn to love it. At least that was the case with ALL three of my niece and nephews. :) My sister had to start limiting how many books so they could get to the sleeping part!
