The nursery is basically done with the exception of the mobile I've been planning to make for the past 7 months (mobile creation is looking less and less likely). So I thought I would post some pictures of the nursery as is.
Here is the infamous crib you all have heard so much about. The bedding I won in a give away on designmom.com
Here is the dresser/changing table. My favorite part is the antique style glass knobs.
Here are Brig's guardian angels. Dave and I were going to buy some wall art with animals like these...but they were $90 each! Ouch. So Dave came home one day with the brilliant plan (and supplies) to paint our own animals. Which animal do you like the best?
This might just be my favorite item - the most comfortable glider in the world, but still small enough to fit in my tiny room. The pillow came tan, but my mom recovered it with some cute fabric to add color. Also the mini book shelf was a home depot special for $12.99. Gotta love that...
This is the door off one of the original windows that was in the baby's room before we replaced them. Dave sanded it down so you can see all the different layers of paint (which conveniently enough ended up being mostly blue). We are going to use this as a picture frame...we just need to order some pictures and get them in there.
Ta Da - almost done (just needs a mobile.) Thanks to Nana & Grandpa Lewis and Grandma & Grandpa Denham for helping us buy all this baby stuff!
So you might be curious - does Brig enjoy his new room? Well turns out Brig has an affinity for the sound of the exhaust fan in the new bathroom. In fact the bathroom fan seems to have the magical ability to help put Brig to sleep in the middle of the night. So, Brig has taken over the new bathroom. I knew we were in a rush to finish the downstairs bath for a reason. Poor Dave...after all his hard work, he has be demoted back to the old, small, upstairs bathroom.
And now I will take a minute to brag about my son. Last night he only woke up twice to eat and then went right back to sleep. He had a 5 hour stretch and two 4 hour stretches. The 5 hour stretch should have been glorious, but Dave was convinced he was going to starve to death and kept waking me up - trying to convince me to feed Brig.
Could he be any cuter? He is such a good baby...definitely a keeper.
