flown by!!! What an amazing journey it has been. I feel truly blessed to have
had such an amazing pregnancy that has allowed me to enjoy every moment and
kick along the way. I am definitely going to miss her in my tummy but excited
for our little bundle of joy to arrive.
our incredible friends and family…We are finally complete with the
nursery and just waiting on the little girl to make her debut. Thank
you everyone again for the outpour of support and gifts. Willie and I are so
grateful to have you in our lives.
remarkable mother of course was wishful thinking when she saved my crib,
highchair and all my favorite children’s books. Thanks mom!
furniture set given to us from Willie’s family after his grandmothers passing.
She was an amazing lady and we are so lucky to have these beautiful furniture
pieces in our baby’s room that she can enjoy for many years. The dresser will
serve as the changing table and I found a perfect customized cover on Etsy that
has our last name initial on it (since we still haven’t decided on a baby
name…YES I know I’m running out of time, but it’s hard decision!).
I found a bargain…Buy Buy Baby had a glider and ottoman floor model set that
was originally $800. We got it for $340 with the floor model discount and
additional 20% coupon! Go me! The beautiful pink Afghan blanket was knitted by Willie’s Aunt. So sweet!
previous owner it was a dull sage green that I just found down right
boring…Willie on the other hand was determined that it was staying. Well after
2 months of debating…I finally got my way and it is now a rich pinkish grey and
I couldn’t be happier. Thanks mom for the full day of painting help J It definitely gave the
room a facelift and created the perfect backdrop for all the decorations to come!
Willie’s grandmother. I topped it off with a photo frame I made that had our
ultrasound photos in it for my first mother’s day J
Willie’s cousin’s wife. It was the PERFECT accent above the crib and it was so
sweet of her to put the time and effort to making us a one of a kind piece of
headband/bow holder that will definitely get tons of use with our little diva!!
What a great idea! I think she has more clothes and accessories then me already
ceiling fan was a find from our recent California trip where we attended a reggae
festival (which was amazing!). Willie has a great deal of Cherokee in him, so I
thought it was very fitting J
childhood books, book ends made by my grandfather and other knickknacks from grandparents. Then atop are my favorite
wooden animals. I still remember these being lined up against the window
overlooking the gorgeous pool in my grandparents’ home. For our little one
these are extremely special as they would have been hand carved by her
great-great grandfather and painted by her great grandmother. “Herman” was my
pet box turtle growing up so my grandmother thought the wooden turtle should
have a name J
My great friend Heather, who is a professional photographer, gave us the gift
of newborn photos for our shower. I’m saving this spot to display these amazing
and super thoughtful photos she is taking VERY soon!!
items or anything that might mean something special to you one day (even if you
house is packed to the max like ours HAHA). I’m all about sentimental items
because they really do make your house a home and unique from anyone else!
