Nursery Progress and Ramblings

As promised, a post about the nursery! We have been super busy between work, family visiting, and life in general. Luckily the nursery is coming along and I'm feeling like we're doing okay

I'll post more about it later, but we were super blessed with a free crib for review! We picked out the Fisher-Price Kingsport Convertible Crib and we're in love. Super thankful of my friend Melissa, she is amazing for thinking of us!

That bedding, swoon! I will cry my eyes out the day we put it into the attic. I know I went a little crazy with the birds, no need to remind me. 

We registered for another 3 or 4 sets of white crib sheets and a waterproof mattress cover-- it's always good to have tons of them for diaper explosions. ;)

While I was sick I was busy making these bad boys. I don't like the idea of a crib mobile, so I thought this was a way cuter option. My inspiration came from here. I plan on doing the same thing-- shoving them up in the wall/ceiling and praying they stay there, LOL. 

Good thing I bought 18 packs of tissue paper, I have lots more to make! 

Nothing too crazy going on along this wall right now. Ordered these letters to go on a shelf above the changing table and am even going to order this garland to decorate the shelf/letters. Cute, right? 

Thinking this hamper on one side of the changing table and this chalkboard basket for blankets and such on the other side. Ahem. We already own two of those chalkboard baskets..totally obsessed with them! 

When my FIL was here last week he helped me do some rearranging. We both agreed that having the furniture like this is the best way to go. 

I'm picturing some tissues on the nightstand, maybe some books, and whatever else. I thought it would be a good idea to have a nightstand by the glider-- perfect place to keep some water or my phone. 

Maybe some shelves above the glider? BG has received lots of stuffed animals (plus I'm dying to order this ridiculous-ly overpriced stuffed animal) and keeping them on a shelf seems cute! 

We ended up getting this cubeicle for all her little clothes, sleepers, and the like. As much as I dislike them, we really had no room for a real dresser. Oh well! 

We have yet to get curtains but that's going to have to happen soon. 

The bookcase is still holding random items we've yet to find a home for-- head bands (I'm thinking a glass jar like this), socks, books, and the ring sling. Like I've mentioned, I'll probably use the bookcase for books (duh!) and some baskets to hold whatever else.

My husband is going to hang the wreath above the bookcase, I am not a fan of it leaning against the wall like that.

Our fluffy rug hasn't arrived yet, but I'm so excited to take BG's picture on it!

Okay, that is it for now. I'm sure I forgot nine dozen things but that's the most of it. Cannot wait to make more progress and share with y'all! xO
