4 months to go...

Well for those of you that do not know we are having a....BOY!!! We are very excited and thrilled (but more so for the fact that he is healthy and developing well!)
I have narrowed down my nursery choice to "trees and birds."
We have begun the exciting process of getting his room ready for his special arrival the first week of November. The colors for the room are shades of blue and chocolate brown. The room has been painted a pale blue color called "water glass blue" by Martha Stewart available at Lowe's.

I hope you enjoy my selections and hopefully I can post pictures soon of the completed room!

This is the fabric that will be used as accent pillows on the day bed. We have purchased a day bed to put in the nursery for extra sleeping space. (Found this fabulous fabric online at Hancocks of

I am using mix and match stuff from Baby's R Us. I am not a "matchy" type person and do not prefer "bedding sets" and matching furniture. It looks great in other peoples homes and nurseries but it is not my style. This will be the crib bumper, it is so sweet and soft. I am using ecru sheets and an ecru crib skirt - sweet and simple.

My parents have so graciously purchased our Little Man's crib. It is a Jenny Lind crib in white. I am mixing the furniture and wood tones as well. The dresser, that will double as a changing table, is an antique honey oak dresser that was in my own nursery as an infant and then was my dresser all the way through high school. My mother has allowed me to bring to my house to use in the nursery. What makes it even more special is the fact that my grandmother bought it and refinished it for my mother when I was born!

And lastly, we are having a tree painted in the room similar to the one in this Pottery Barn picture. Ignore all of the other things in the picture - we are just using the idea of this tree. The sweet girl who is painting for me will be here on Saturday morning to scope out things and look at the room so we can decide the best place to paint the tree!

I am so excited and can't wait for it to all come together!

I can't wait to see it either!!! Looks good sissy! Of course it will only stay nice for the first few months and then he'll be spitting up and pooping all over everything! Enjoy!
