we have made a lot of headway on sylvie's nursery in the last few days! tonight we got her bookcases put to together!
and a close-up of all of her cute things!
the larger of the two lambs was mine when i was a wee babe. it plays mary had a little lamb and moves its head from side to side when wound. the picture in the frame is a photograph of my nana and sylvie's namesake. the zebra and the hippo come from my parents and trav's parents, respectively. that little panda next to the zebra is a paci plushie from allie at it's a wonderful life. the rest are things we purchased for her at various places.
here is the smaller of the two bookcases.
these red bins are fantastic! they are really heavy duty canvas and zip completely closed. they'll be great for when she's mobile and constantly trying to get into things! both bookcases are part of the expedit series from ikea. the bins are from ikea, too. as you can tell from these pictures, there is still A LOT to be done! still, i think we've made great progress this week. we're going to be parents in 3 months. she could be here, completely healthy, in 11 weeks. how crazy is that?! i can't wait to meet her!
here is the crib we decided on for sylvie:
lollipop crib by ap industries.
my husband's parents were very generous and bought it for us yesterday. thanks, mom and dad hinkle!!! i love it. it's simple, classic, and perfect for our daughter. OUR DAUGHTER. it still blows my mind to be able to write that and say it out loud.
we ordered our changing table today. it will arrive in about 2 weeks!
south shore changing table from babies r us.
we also picked out our bookcases. we're going to take a trip out to the ikea outside of cincinnati to pick them up in about a month. we're planning a trip to ohio then to visit trav's parents, anyway.

it feels great to have all of the basic elements of the nursery picked out! we're almost halfway there, and i'm starting to feel the pressure to get organized! i think the nesting phase has officially begun. i am so in love with our little girl.
