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!
