Well, I’ve been in crazy nesting mode. I’m sorta driving Hector nuts, ah well. Something is finally [almost] complete!! The NURSERY! Evan spent a lot of time in our room, but I feel like setting up his nursery was super important. A way to feel “ready” for baby, I’m lucky I was able to put together another nursery for our new addition. I’m still holding out hope I’ll find a great new glider, but my budget has been tightened so it may not happen. Never the less, here it goes! We saved a lot of money by reusing Evan’s gently used crib that just has some teeth marks where the blankets are draped. The frames above baby #MAV’s crib were a STEAL at target for 13.48 each (originally 45ish bucks!!). Not sure if we will keep his initials in them just yet, it was a quick easy CHEAP! idea 😉
Something else, we re-used?
Evan’s mobile. He now has some paper airplanes hanging in his room and we plan on getting him some old school “hair planes” to hang where this once was – Evan is into all things moving (trucks, TRAINS, air planes, and helicopters) – so we are just going to get some vintage looking things to help complete his “bigger” boy room. I love the simplicity and uniqueness of this mobile so I’m glad it is making another very important appearance.
Next up, nursing station:
a nice lamp (lying around the house), nursing table (nipple cream, breast pads and likely a granola bar or two in the not too far future are hidden in the drawers of the table) and a earthy candle I can already see lil guy cuddled in my arms, Evan at my feet and my kindle neglected beside me 😉
Some other small details:
This hanging basket from target. Filled with a couple books, wubbanubs, burpy bibs and my beloved Nosfrida. The one thing we did splurge on early on was a new dresser for the bebe, good thing we got it to before our household “halt” if you will:
It’s a super great piece that will last forever that has a lovely gouge in it from getting it home – made us realize we def need an SUV. Int eh basket are some newborn diapers and wipes and the only thing missing is the changing pad and a diaper warmer (Evan is currently using as a piggie bank, lol). On his shelf is a cute tin I grabbed from Michaels filled with extra pacficers and baby mittens 🙂 the drawers are full of clothes. We are all ready for you!
Now if my little love would just get here quickly! I’m getting anxious!
How cute is big bro to be E?
Alright – lots to do. Hope you enjoyed my mostly picture update.
