It's Here!

This has been a great day. We had an early lunch with my Memaw and Pappaw and, since it's practically a summer day at 78 degrees, we got to sit outside on the patio of our favorite BBQ joint. Then we got home just in time for the big delivery. Jackson really fought me on his nap today and got out of bed several times (dern!), but he did finally go to sleep. So it's been a good one.

Now get to the point, woman!

The crib is here! See why I picked this one? I love it.


Inside view of the crib bedding.


Front view of crib. Apparently I could have done a better job tying the bumper, but I was too excited to be meticulous!


Pink minky dot glider - so soft and cushy! Thank you, Hubs! My back will be so happy.


I'd like to see what the room would look like with the crib in a different location, but VPG wasn't strong enough to move that bad boy on her own.


We are keeping the old crib in case we have a male Whoops! down the road, at which time it would be repainted. We are still lacking Baby's canvas letters (which I did end up getting to order from the same lady who did Jackson's), a big pink teddy bear I bought and had to leave in Missouri, curtains, and some other wall hangings that I have yet to discover. I'd also like to buy some really cute drawer knobs at Anthropologie and put them on the dresser.

Now for some pictures of baby clothes.

My current most treasured earthly possession.


God-willing, this is what our princess will wear home from the hospital. I bought this at Janie and Jack a few months ago. It's actually preemie size, so I'm holding onto this one loosely. It should fit that day unless she's a lot bigger than Jackson. His outfit was WAY too big for him. I learned my lesson.


My Aunt Tina bought us this white linen dress in Spain, where her family was living until the end of the summer. When she gave it to me, we didn't yet know what we were having. It's actually unisex (how European), but Curtis Jones would never have let a son of his wear something like this. Needless to say, I'm glad it worked out! It means a lot to me to have this.


I got this for Baby Girl when I won that shopping spree at Old Navy a few months ago. Love it!


This is a precious little Easter coat. Can you see the bunny ears on the hood and the carrot in the pocket? Is this not the sweetest thing ever? It is unbelievably soft, too. This was sent to me by a very sweet blog reader named Emmy!


I saw this in a boutique my sister-in-law took me to in Springfield. I thought Baby Girl would look real sweet in this in her bed.


This happened while I was making my afternoon tea. I swear it just jumped out of the cabinet. Do not enlarge this unless you want to see some dog hair and a close up of grout that has seen better days. Yesterday the floors got mopped and hours later I spilled/flung melted ice cream all over them. And last night I made lasagna, which means there's probably dried up tomato sauce all over the place. Oh cleanliness, how elusive you are!


If you haven't already, you need to go over and see Sunni's new nursery for Baby Clara. It's so adorable! My friend has great taste!

I just LOVE your fabric choices for the bedding and the crib is just icing on the cake!

Baby Girl is one blessed little baby to have that room to sleep in! And that precious glider will make for some blissful rocking with her mama.

Thanks for sharing these pictures with us, Amanda.

Patty said...

Adorable!! I love it! Your pink chair looks so comfy. The outfits are the cutest I have ever seen. The easter coat was to precious for words!

Thanks for giving us a peek into your little girl's nursery... I can't wait to find out her sweet little name :)

The crib is beautiful, and that pink outfit with the fur...Oh my, CUTE!!!

Blessings sweet one...

Melanie said...

Gorgeous! How fun! My daughter (now NINE) has the twin bed like your crib. We LOVE it! She's still a girly-girl which makes me SO happy :) Love the bedding, too. My sis-in-law is having her first, Georgia Grace "GG" (yes, we are from the sou-outh), in April and she's using similar colors and fabric. I'm so excited to see hers now, too. Girls are fun (but enjoy the fun cause the DRAMA's coming!)!!

Toknowhim said...

Oh, I forgot... I love your glider...It looks like the most comfy place to sit with your baby and Jackson too.

Kelly said...

You and Sunni have both done a great job! I love your crib - it's so cute and girly as is the bedding!
And of course i LOVE those little girl outfits!!! Can't you just wait to dress her up????

Holly said...

GUSHING! Amanda, I am GUSHING and EXCLAIMING how wonderful those clothes and furniture are!!!!

Praise God--I cannot wait to see that downy, little head on those soft sheets!!

I really cannot!

Makes me want another--alas, we cannot have any more children. That's OK, I think they would have had to lock me up in the nearest mental facility if that did happen.

Have a wonderful weekend, my Sister.

Jen said...

OH.MY.GOODNESS. I need to get married and have a baby girl. Immediately.
Love the crib and bedding!

twinkle said...

It looks like a happy pattern on the crib linens! I love that! Sort of french country? But that bed. O MY! It is fabulous. No crayons allowed in that room, okay? I'm imagining the cutest little family group drawn on crib...
And I think I can fit in that princess outfit...o i wish!
So very glad you have shared today. Bibby must be on cloud 9.

Rose said...

It looks great!
Hugs

bethany said...

That glider looks sooo comfortable! Your bedding turned out really cute.

Want me to send you a tutu to round out Baby Girl's wardrobe? It's a necessity if you're having newborn pictures taken and I still owe you a "thank you" gift. Let me know!!

Kristen said...

It's all so beautiful! I love the bed and remember looking at that one with Ellery. She will be one STYLISH little girl!

Callie said...

this room is so stinkin' precious!! Baby Girl is going to rule that house for sure!! By the way...we have that same rocker in Carson's room (but of course, not in pink) and I love love love it!! Many cherished moments have been spent there rocking my sweet baby boy! Nothing beats that new baby smell and the feel of that sleeping baby in your arms. I am so excited for you guys!!!

petrii said...

Oh good gravy, if these are not the cutest baby girl clothes I've ever see -- and that coat!! Get-out-of-town cute!!!

Have a Blessed evening,
Dawn

valerie said...

I love the crib and all of those adorable little outfits!

You are going to have so much fun dressing up that little girl.

Kelli said...

I love the new bedding! Javis Davis did my bedding and I think they are just sweet as can be! And I just loved that the sent a blanket to a kid in the hospital through Project Linus with the left over fabric for the baby's bed!

The blue sleeper is PRECIOUS! I love pink but I think there is something super sweet about a baby girl in a perfect teal blue!

Sonshine and Wildflowers said...

That sweet princess will LOVE LOVE LOVE her room. It's beautiful! Your joy is seeping through my screen ~ so happy for you.

Jenny said...

Love, Love, Love your nursery! Your little one will look so sweet sleeping in that beautiful crib! Love the outfits too! I have two boys and we adopted a baby girl 4 months ago. Having a girl is so... much fun!!!! I LOVE all the PINK!!!!!

rachel said...

OK. I LOVE IT! It's adorable. That blue print is flawless! Sister, you got it right. Baby Girl is so lucky!!! And I love the new glider.

The coming-home outfit is precious, and I'm coveting the one-piece you got in Springfield. Love the print!

Terri_in_Alabama said...

That is so adorable!!! Do you have Baby's "my first purse" yet? It is all out of cloth and has a cloth lipstick, cloth compact, and cloth comb... That is all a little girl needs! ha!

Lisa @ The Preacher's Wife said...

What a fun post...I LOVE nursery bedding. I still look at it all the time as if I'll ever need it again.

And just saying that made me a little sad.

And just so you know, I'm fighting some glider envy. That chair is the berries.

Heather said...

I love the bedding! I have some summer new 3-6 month things that I was given that my girl will not get to enjoy b/c she will be well past that by the time summer gets here. Would you like it?

Kristie said...

Aw! My baby girl has just lost her first tooth and turned six this past month! I get a tear in my eye looking at all this stuff. They grow up so fast (as I know you've already seen w/ Jackson)...enjoy every moment!

Blessings,
Kristie

Alana said...

HIS Child said...

Her nursery is absolutely precious and her bedding is perfect to accomodate her princess form.
God bless you as come to the end of carrying her within to holding her in your arms. I am so happy for you. You are a very special women and a great mom.
Love ya,
Celeste

lavonda said...

I just looked at those adorable clothes, and I can feel myself ovulating!! I'm on the brink of wanting maybe one more, and that little pink outfit with the faux fir on the ankles is pushing me over the edge!
Doggone it.


(If you sit really still and listen hard, you can hear my biological clock ticking in Texas all the way from Georgia...)

Lindsee said...

It's here! And everything about it is adorable. I drooled over every outfit!

The Sanders House said...

yankee mama said...

Katie said...

I am so excited for all your cute girl stuff. My baby girl is due Feb. 23 and I am already on laundry load #6 for her.Never has laundry been so fun (and probably never will be again :) What I wouldn't give to have that many cute clothes for myself. I hardly know where to put them all!

annalee said...

ooh, la, la, you are definitely ready for miss priss. her nursery and coming home outfit make me squeal!

Ashley said...

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bedding! Absolutely darling...and her wardrobe is to die for!

(Love Sunni's nursery, too!)

BEAUTIFUL!! That crib is darling and the bedding adds the perfect touch! I love it!

Tara said...

Amanda,
I am so happy for you! It all goes together beautifully- The bedding is exquisite and your glider is to die for! One lucky girl you are going to have!

PS. I am so with you on the organized pink and frilly stuff in the closet. And the outfits you showed are adorable!

Vonda said...

I think your baby's poo is gonna look like vera bradley...what a waste it would be to clean that up...

wetherell said...

Such a cute Room!!!!! Love everything! Baby Jones will love it!

Kris Schneider said...

Be strong in the "going to bed" area! You will never regret having a kid who is easy to put to bed. What may seem hard at the time (for a day or week or maybe even a month) will have great reward down the road!

Just a little encouragement from a 40ish mother of 5 (18, 17, 14, 11, and 3)!!

Have a great day! The room is darling!

Kris

Richardsons of HV said...

I love all the colors of the bedding. So cute!
She is going to be stylin' for sure! Her aunt and grandmama will be sure of that!

Lora said...

Oh my Amanda, I'm suddenly wanting another baby. Lovely, just lovely!

katiegfromtennessee said...

AHHH! Little Momma, check it!!! How cute?!! LOVE the baby furniture! and the clothes!:) The feathers, the ruffles, the PINK!:) And the glider ain't bad either:)...Feeling for you about your ceramics and floor:)

Much Christian love to you,

Kelly @ Love Well said...

Is it wrong that I now want to go shopping for cute girl clothes?

Good grief, they are like a DRUG.

And that bedding is NOT helping my addiction.

Melinda said...

Ohhhhh...I just had a pang for days gone by! Absolutely precious!!

Tonya said...

SHUT UP!!!! This stuff is so stinkin' cute! Maybe I could have just one more...oh wait, what am I thinking? Look how you've gone and made me literally loose my mind for a brief second!

I had a girl first and they are just so much more fun to shop for than boys. My girl is now out of her "pink" stage...she's almost 9 and loves blue and green. WHAT???

Enjoy it!

Danielle (Life with the Hewitt Family) said...

The crib, bedding, and chair look wonderful.

The clothes as so girly! Love them!

Sarah said...

This post is BAD for me--I already want another girl, but seeing those clothes makes me NEED another one!

Now just to convince Pace . . .

(And that crib/glider/bedding is all so precious!!)

Audrey and Company said...

All you need now is your precious baby girl. I love her room, especially the pink glider...it looks so comfy and soft. Baby girl is going to one well dressed little princess.

Amy Beth @ Ministry So Fabulous! said...

Just now catching up on some blog reading! Um, I got so excited when I saw these pictures. I LOVE BABY ITEMS!

My favorite is the outfit with the fuzzies around the ankles... you didn't happen to see that in my size by any chance? :)
