for dinner tonight (our 4:30 early bird special dinner), we had three cheese tortellini.
before you get all you're a wonderful cook! it looks so delicious! what talent you have! please be aware that i woke up a little under the weather this morning and it's all courtesy of buitoni and mr. paul newman (may he rest in peace). the basil, however, is from our new garden.
i don't believe i ever shared the fact that i put together sylvie's changing table this week. here it is in all its glory!
yep, that's our kitchen in the background. we're fitting all of this (and us) into a 730 square foot, one bedroom apartment. the nursery is really the back half of our living room, which was originally an office/workspace. it's a space of about 9 feet by 7 feet and is open to the rest of the living room/kitchen. if you have a house or even just a second bedroom, consider yourself lucky and me jealous. we, in the words of the immortal tim gunn, MAKE IT WORK. (is anybody else super stoked about the project runway finale tonight?)
in addition to our changing table, we added some new baby items to our arsenal this week.
we splurged a little on this lamp from urban outfitters because LOOK AT IT. it's a yellow bunny for goodness sake!
we also purchased a grey moby wrap and this mobile from our friendly neighborhood baby boutique. sylvie's nursery is really starting to come together!
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!

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.
