Lately we've been spending a lot of time in the baby's room. We bought the crib a few months ago, and since then we've been filling it with blankets, stuffed animals and cute trinkets that we've recieved. We have the tiny little shoes and slippers all in a row on the desk and piles of clothes in a basket and hung in the closet. For some reason we gravitate toward that room and find ourselves having all our conversations in there, whether they are about the baby or not. It has quickly become the favorite room in our little apt. The sun is always shining brightly through that window and we can't help but have good feelings when we enter. It's fun to see the crib in there and think about the day when another sweet spirit will fill that space.

*recently we've added a little rug, an old rocking chair we re-upholstered, and a retro dresser we got for $15! More about those things later.

Sweet picture! I, too, am dying to see the whole room! I always think it is so fun to look at baby things and imagine how they will be when filled! It's fun that you and Brady love to be in Olivia's room! It's not long now!!

I like the little "sneak peek"! I can't wait to see the finished product! But even more I can't wait to see the little princess who will inhabit this space!

love you!

That's so cute! I love the blankie in the pic, it matches some of Addie bean's stuff.

Very exciting! I look forward to seeing more nursery pics! I love that you're reburbishing items for the room. The dresser we have in little Grace's room belonged to her grandma when she was a little girl. Old furniture adds much more of a loving touch to the room, I think :)
