The nursery is complete!

Dear baby girl,

Even though you’re almost 11 weeks old and I still have one thing left on the to-do list for your nursery, it’s about time I post some pictures!

I just love the feeling of the calm, cozy space when you walk in the door. Your daddy says it’s the most decorated room in the house.

The only thing left to complete is to fill the shelves on the wall and your bookshelf. I want to put some pictures in frames on the little shelves under your name and hope to get that done soon!

Changing area. There are many “poo” jokes that have been said already.

I opted to go with a dresser to put a changing pad on top of, rather than purchasing a separate changing table. I love the convenience of changing and picking out your outfit for the day. Some days you are very patient with me when we play dress up. It’s fun to see what you fit into as you slowly grow. You’re almost fitting into three months clothes! That is the size I received the most of as gifts, so you will have lots of clothes when they all finally fit. Here are a couple that already do!

Your crib – I just love it. And you sleep pretty good in here, too!

I just love everything about your crib – the bedding set, the crib itself, and how well you sleep in it. I’m a lucky momma! We don’t actually keep the blanket on the crib, for safety purposes, but it looked nice for the picture. 🙂 When you are big enough you will get to sleep with the blanket.

Storage central! Love the cubbies and the bookshelf we got at Target.

One of the things I love about your nursery is the book collection. You can see some of them in that basket, and we have almost an entire shelf full on your bookshelf. These are all gifts we received at showers from family and friends. We’ve read several already – you really love ones that have rhymes, like Dr. Seuss.

You can see a couple empty shelves that will soon be full of more books and toys as you get older. I can’t wait to see you grow into your room and enjoy it. One of the neat things about not knowing your gender is that this nursery will also work well for a possible younger brother or sister someday. Then you’ll get your big girl bedroom! Wow, I am getting way too ahead of myself here. 🙂

I’m so happy your nursery is complete! It was a lot of fun picking things out and watching Daddy put it together. 🙂 We make a good team. I hope someday you enjoy it as much as we do!

With love,
