Nursery Update

Here are some recent pictures of how the nursery is coming along. In the beginning, I had no vision or any idea as to what I wanted. I just knew I wanted it to be bright and cheerful. I think I accomplished that!
The bedding is from Pottery Barn Kids from the "Mia" collection. I also got the pink panels from PBK on sale for $8.99 a piece! Now that is a bargain! I just need to get some room darkening mini-blinds, these let too much light in.

The changing table was given to us by someone I used to babysit for. I think it goes nicely with the rest of the room decor.

We have a dresser coming, a family friend has an antique dresser from her mother. The dresser top needs to be sanded and refinished and it needs new knobs. I am thinking pewter knobs. The dresser is a dark espresso color.

The bedding on the twin bed is from Pottery Barn. I had this before on the bed so no change there, but it does seem to go nicely with the rest of the room. I would like to get the "Mia" quilt for the bed so she can have something new.
As you can see, baby girl needs no more clothes!! She already has more outfits than her mommy!

Or shoes for that matter!

Baby Showers Galore!

I had my first shower thrown by my wonderful mom on June 14th. We did not get many pictures because we were too busy doing other things! But my friend Beth gave me a few shots. We were very blessed with all the great baby stuff we got. It was a great day!!

My Mother-in-Law and two sister-in-lwas threw me another shower on June 21st. Again, we were soo blessed with all the stuff people got for our new addition. Here is a picture of my MIL, me and my mother.

Here I am opening some gifts. The pretty favors are on the mantle behind me. I heard that the hosts spent a lot of time working on these and they came out so pretty!

Me little neice Abby was so cute playing "peek-a-boo" with one of the presents and with her Aunt Melissa. She was such a doll that day!
