Finishing Touches (The Nursery Part II)

The nursery is finally finished! After two wonderful showers both of our places of work, we got to go shopping and purchase the last few things we needed for the nursery! My Mom came for the weekend to help us get everything organized, and my sis and her husband came over to help us get things put in place. Actually, the guys did most of the "putting into place" while we gave very helpful input :) Here are a few more pictures - the biggest differences are the things now hanging on the wall and the VERY organized closet (you know me and organization!) I'm sure it won't stay this way forever, but I can dream, can't I?

The Nursery

We were so excited when our nursery furniture finally arrived yesterday! We were hoping to have it last weekend when our families were here, but were thrilled to pick it up and (of course) immediately put it together! R got to practice constructing a crib with our friends, so he is an expert and had things put together in no time. It's starting to set in that this is actually a room for OUR baby - very exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. Our most recent childbirth class also brought to light some realities about the actual birth experience - too much information if you ask us! We decided that ignorance is bliss and agreed to try not to think about it :) Enjoy the pictures - hope you can see her room in person soon!
