Nursery in Progress
Bevin's room is almost finished! The walls have been painted, the rug rolled out, and artwork on the walls. But we still have a few serious steps to take...like a crib! Ha! Micah is still occupying our family crib even though he has moved into a room with his big brother. So for the interim Bevin is sleeping in her pack and play bassinet as you will see a few photos down. No worries! She has not made one peep about it.
A few items have been hung on the walls. It can be a little intimidating to hang things on your freshly painted walls but sometimes you just have to go for it! I did hang this too high originally and I have to patch one small hole. No worries.
I LOVE the way that the stripes turned out! Don't you?
I also love the simple framed birth announcement. All I did was scotch tape Bevin's birth announcement to a piece of vintage wallpaper. (I can say vintage right? It is a Ralph Lauren pattern from 2000 so it is a decade old. At least it sounds cooler to say "vintage") Then I cut the paper to fit a frame that I got from T.J Max. I originally did it as a temporary fix until I printed the right sized photo but NOW I love it just the way it is. Don't you love how that happens!
Some day a crib will go where the pack and play is now. We are playing around with the idea of getting her a new crib that converts into a toddler bed and letting Micah stay in his crib as long as he needs. Believe me, nobody wants that one wandering the house alone at night. Recently I found Micah in the kitchen chopping the tops off of strawberries with our largest knife. And before that I caught him Windexing the wall with a disinfecting wipe. As soon as I caught him in action he took a big bite out of the wipe! That story ended with extra babyproofing and a phone call to the pediatrician and poison control!
...of her bear mobile.
Talking to them.
Making sure her sheep is close at hand.
