Just add baby (oh and clothes and wipes and all the other stuff babies need)

I have been somewhat obsessing about the nursery these past few weeks. I think it has given me a way to pass the time.

So I have lots of pictures to show today. They are kind of dark, because it wasn’t the best light and my camera flash isn’t working. Still, I think you get the idea.

Here is the mural that my mom and I worked on…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I really like the way it turned out. My mom’s flowers and butterfly are really cute. I drew the bumblebee and the sun and stenciled in the words. The quote is from a Beth Orton song if you are not familiar, ‘Live as you Dream’.

The crib and it’s canopy…

From Un-Simple Procreation

It took a few attempts to figure out how to get the canopy to stay up. I ended up putting a dry through anchor into the ceiling and attaching a metal loop thingy (my extensive hardware knowledge is evident) to it. Then I used picture wire to attach it to the loop. I know we will have to move it when she gets big enough to try and rip it down. I guess I will hang something else up there then.

Some cherries on the wall…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I know they don’t look the greatest, but it was a tribute to Mary Engelbreit. LOL

A little mural I did on another wall…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I found this quote in a ME book and I thought it was appropriate. I really like the way it turned out. My picture is not what ME’s was about, but I like the little bird and the nest. :)

The queen bed and wall decor…

From Un-Simple Procreation

DH got Zoe a parasol at a festival we went to, so I put it up on the wall. You can see some of the ME posters we got too.

A view from the corner with the glider and window…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I think the glider fits right in.

View from the window of the dresser and wall decor…

From Un-Simple Procreation

Those are four ME prints that my mom painted the frames for, among other things.

Close up of dresser/changing table…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I will have to see how the changing pad fits on it, but I think the color is cute as a button.

Birdhouse shelf…

From Un-Simple Procreation

I got all of these birdhouses at craft stores and my mom painted them. Aren’t they adorable?!

A marionette…

From Un-Simple Procreation

A ladybug and flower…

From Un-Simple Procreation

It was hard to get a good picture because there isn’t a lot of light in that corner.

Name on wall….

From Un-Simple Procreation

My mom painted these letters. :)

And last but not least, the ceiling…

From Un-Simple Procreation

Do you see the whale? The bunny rabbit? :)

DH is really liking the nursery. He says he wants to take over the room himself. He said I need to move on to our room (although I can’t seem to get him to understand that our room is decorated – but we are adults so it isn’t nearly as fun! He wants a Star Wars theme. lol)

Well that is all for now!
I have my 28 week appt this friday, then it is on to bi-monthly appointments.
In two weeks we will have the 3D/4D Ultrasound. I am anxious to see the little body that keeps kicking me and the little face….
