I’m back, as promised, with a quick update of our nursery progress. The furniture is assembled, dresser drawers lined and filled with freshly laundered baby clothes and the crib is all made up. There’s still a few things we need to complete our registry and nursery space, but most of what’s left to do is to organize and decorate.
Currently, the crib is made up with a blue sheet, but that doesn’t mean we know Baby H’s sex. We also have yellow sheets, but I wanted to try the blue one after I washed everything (we had made the crib earlier with a yellow sheet). Here are two of my favorite recent additions to the room:
We got the bunny at a local toy store in Old Town called Why Not? We were looking for a stuffed animal to add to the room. I was originally thinking a stuffed bear, but at the store Shane and I were swayed by the bunnies. It turns out both Shane and I had gray stuffed bunnies as children, so it’s fitting that Baby H should have a gray stuffed bunny too! (I never knew that about Shane before – it’s fun that after knowing each other for nearly 4 years we’re still learning new things about each other!)
The smiley apple pillow was a surprise find at Target a couple weeks ago. We randomly found it on one of the clearance end-caps and it works perfectly with our nursery theme! It’s even double-sided with a green smiley apple face on the other side.
We’ll be picking up a Craigslisted rocking chair this weekend that we’re planning on spray-painting white. We’re still on the hunt for a lamp. Otherwise, I just need to get busy on crafting a flag banner and framing and hanging the artwork we have for the walls. I’ll share all the details as we continue progress.
