Baby Girl's Nursery

This room came together somewhat naturally, and really - pretty easily. I knew I didn't want to go over the top, I didn't have a ton of motivation while I was pregnant, and with some simple touches, this has quickly become one of my favorite rooms. So come take a look. 

The gold mirror gallery wall was really the only inspiration I had for the room, and so I really did everything around it.

It took me a long time to find drapes I liked. These were a score from TJ.Maxx and they're not quite thick enough to be great for light blocking, so we'll have to figure that out when we get there, but for now, I love them. 

Joel and his dad installed these extra long book cases from Ikea and I sort of envision finding a sheep skin rug or something cozy for a little reading nook down the line. 



Leo is still sleeping really well in his crib and we had zero interest in rocking that boat, so I'm borrowing a crib from my cousin until he makes the transition to his big boy bed.

For now, the wall behind the crib is blank until I find something that I love. I'm leaning towards blowing up three black and white pictures once we have our new born pictures taken, and may do them on a canvas type of situation so that nothing heavy would be over her bed. 

My california besties gifted baby Drew her hand painted sign, and Leo's babysitter gifted us the precious doll house. I'd like to have all of the doll house pieces in a different wicker basket, but for now, this is doing the job just fine. 

Drew lucked out with a really big walk in closet, and Joel added a few extra wire shelves to make it that much more efficient.  

I'm still getting used to all of the girly clothes and just can't handle all of the cuteness.


Best Gift Ever

On Thursday, December 21st our family welcomed our daughter Drew Holland at 7:59am, clocking in at 7lbs and 20". She has been perfect in every way. 

We are adjusting well as a family of four. Leo has been a great big brother - has mainly been curious - but spoiled with love from lots of family.

We're enjoying having Joel home this week and have been so thankful to our friends and family for allowing this transition to go as well as we could have ever imagined.
