The Nursery is coming together...

OK, so now that we are feeling pretty confident in this baby coming home with us, we have been busy busy getting the baby's room together - we have had so much fun. Notice I say we when really Jeff has been working his tail off for me getting the nursery ready. I have to admit Jeff has BLOWN me away with his handiwork in the nursery, it looks absolutely amazing. The pictures don't really do it the justice it deserves but you will get the idea here.

Fabric swatches for the boys bedding set! The stripe is the skirt, polka dots inside of the bumper and paisley is the outside of the bumper.

A few different views of the room

Yes the rocking chair is pink but no need to change it till I know for sure so I told the baby I was sorry if it was a boy in there, we will get it changed when he arrives. Oh and we need to add the rest of the knobs to the changing table but they are all chunky brown knobs.

I just love the way the nursery is turning out, it is SO very different from Kate's room and from what I was doing in the triplets room so I just love it! Like I already said, Jeff has worked his tail off and it shows. I have seen these signs that say "Fairy Tales Do Come True" but I want one that says "Dreams do come true" for the wall, I am debating if I need to have it painted on the wall so it can be the colors I want, I am just going to have to keep searching for now. I have all these visions of the artwork I want for the wall but I am not sure it exists, I wish I was creative enough to make it myself. I did just sit in the room last night wondering who it was going to be coming home to this room...I have no strong feeling either way. It is crazy that it really won't be much longer now till we know!!

I am so glad that you are getting excited about the nursery. I know it was hard for you to let your heart into this in case something went wrong but nothing is. You are doing great and your baby is going to be home before you know it. I am just so happy for you and Jeff!

The nursery looks amazing and the swatches you picked out our really going to pop in the room. I can't wait to see it all finished...once the little girl or boy comes home. :)

The room looks great! Jeff has done a wonderful job with everything. It is so great to hear the excitement in your voice about the arrival of your precious baby!

I love the fabric choices for the bedding, can't wait to see which one will be the bedding :)

Oh, what type of picture are you looking for the nursery? Maybe I can help?

It looks awesome! I am so doing beadboard for the next room! Can't wait to see how it all turns out. You should get Jenn Mautz to help you with some artwork, she did Ansley's and Madison's!

The room looks GREAT!!! Who knew Jeff could do that! haha. So will you paint anything after the baby comes or is everything as is and you will just accesorize with pink/blue? I LOVE the bedding, can we call the person to find out which she is making??? haha - Just kidding. :-)

Hey! I am a lurker but love to read your blog. I am due around the same time as you are and have been praying for you during this pregnancy. I saw this website where you can order vinyl wall lettering/art and you can choose what you want it to say. This is the website. I thought you might be interested that way you wouldn't have to paint anything else on the wall if you didn't want to. http://www.vinylletterdecor.com/
