Alissa, I love the nursery pics! So cute!!!
Nice nursery! It sounds like you have been nesting
Little dude will sleep in the cradle in our bedroom for a few months, so no rush to finish the nursery. With Sam he slept in our room since we only had one bedroom at first. He continued in our room until last year, I never even bought a baby monitor. Our bedroom is on the main floor, so I am thinking he may nap better upstairs where it is quieter. We shall see! I liked being able to watch Sam sleep.
Love these pics! Jessica, yours looks so comfy and stylish, like a den or something with that couch in there! Does it convert to a bed? Definitely unique with the gray crib - never seen something like that before!
Alissa, I love that you're all ready for baby! And all of the furniture matches really well together!
I hope to get some decals or something to "cuten" the nursery a little more. Otherwise, the decor is there. It should come together really fast after DD moves out. I just have to clean out the closet and stock it with baby stuff, set up the changing station on top of the dresser and put in the glider. We're going to keep DD's kitchen set in there so that will be interesting if it's a boy but he won't care.
Grey crib and futon is me. Yes the futon converts to horizontal position, I wouldn't go as far as calling it a bed! Haha. But it will be great for late nights being up with a baby. I also "plan" to nap in his room in the beginning. I don't like napping in my bed, because it sucks me in and I oversleep during naps.
Also if we have people stay at night we can put them in there with the crying baby!! Haha.
Duh yeah I knew it was yours Elizabeth just got the wrong name.
Napping in there is a great idea! I hate napping in the bed - it just seems wrong somehow. DH makes fun of me because I will try to nap on the couch w/ him playing games in the background and then I eventually just give in and get in bed.
I love seeing the nurseries!! We're not doing one for this baby, so I like being able to adore all of yours. We did set the crib up in our room and put a beautiful cross stitch thing with her name on it on the wall above it. I've got all of her stuff set up in our room too, something for clothes, diapers, blankets, etc... I guess I could take some pics.
Joan, you should! It sounds lovely!
