Lately I’ve spent my days staring at the cutest baby ever (in my very unbiased opinion). Christopher took the month off so the three of us have fallen into a sweet little routine. Mornings on the back patio, afternoons marked by visitors (usually bringing dinner), and evening strolls around the neighborhood. We’ve gotten out most days to run an errand here or there, but for the most part the days are slow and sweet. We’re all getting plenty of sleep which has been such a surprise to the adults in the family (though we’re hoping the trend continues!) and these first couple of weeks have been pretty amazing. We are soaking up every minute and absolutely loving it.
But I realized yesterday that I never shared photos of the nursery with you guys. So I thought I would pop in here to do today. 🙂
When you first walk in the door you are greeted with this sign I made thanks to Photoshop. 🙂
The dresser originally belonged to my grandparents and the crib was mine when I was a baby (my sisters and niece and nephew also slept in it). The rocking horse was a gift from our friends, Heather & James, whose little boys have outgrown it. The pink blanket was made by my Aunt Denise with some sort of magic that enabled her to make those adorable hearts. And the “Ciao Bella” (Hello Beautiful) sign was made by our friend Mandy.
The rocker belonged to my sister, Holly, when her babies were little. The sign above the bookshelves was made by our friend, Whitney. And the shelves above the rocker are filled with sweet handmade gifts. You can read the specifics here.
Why yes, yes, we do have a LOT of books in her room. Clearly she is going to be the smartest baby ever. 😉
My cousin’s wife made the Be Still sign. She has an Etsy shop with some of the prettiest prints!
A peak into her closet! We have SO many clothes for her that these are just the newborn-3 month clothes. And this doesn’t count the onesies in her dresser. Not to mention the totes of clothes upstairs that have 3 month – 2T in them. We were gifted so many things by so many sweet and generous people!
My sister hand-made the pink bunny! Isn’t it precious? And the fish may seem random to you, but… well, okay… it is kind of random. We’re not exactly into fish. But it was given to us by a close friend who is very into fish. No doubt it will end up being our little one’s favorite just because it’s the least cute thing in her nursery, ha! 😉
That little pink picture frame was in my nursery when I was a baby! And those shoes were my sister, Abby’s.
It’s the sweetest room and in the afternoons the sun streams in the windows on that side of the house creating the most beautiful golden glow. I just absolutely love this space. And even more… I love the little girl who lives here. 🙂
