BOY how life has changed!! Literally.... we are having a baby boy here any day now and we are anxiously awaiting his arrival!!! I just wanted to post a few pictures of his nursery before I go into labor, because who knows when I'll be back to my computer after that!! I'll admit that I'm nuts. Ryan and I are moving to Ft. Worth here in a month and I still thought it was imperative to paint & decorate the nursery. I admit I've got a problem, but let's face it.... I'm experiencing what they call "nesting". It's a new mom-to-be's biological right of passage. Pregnant women out there everywhere, please back me up when I say that if we could bottle up this energy and sell it, we would be rich! I caught myself cleaning out underneath my bathroom sink the other night until 2:00 in the morning, just to wake up at 8:00 the next day to continue the insanity. I can't help it- between washing the baby's clothes in Dreft to decorating a room which will be dismantled within the month, I've truly gone "prazy". (that's pregnant + crazy). I've got to thank my incredible mom for helping me so much in the nursery and putting up with my antics! She and I have had the best time brainstorming each angle of the room. The crib was a gift from both of my parents and my amazing mom made the curtains and some of the baby bedding herself!! My grandmother also hand-stitched some love into the baby bumper giving the bedding a totally custom look. The bookshelf was first in my mom's room when she was a kid and I've since robbed it from my brother's room and repainted it to match our little man's stuff. The ABC wall and his initials posted over the bed were custom drawn on my CAD program and cut out of wood & then painted to match. All we lack at this point is our sweet baby, and possibly a rug, and a chandelier, and a.... oh no, will I ever be finished?!?! haha. I plan on sharing many more images from our pregnancy, including our gender reveal, baby showers, maternity pictures & much more... but for now, enjoy this sweet nursery, because in five years it will be all sports posters and sweaty boy stuff....right now though, it's mommy's way or the highway!
Life's a flash, capture accordingly.
