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!
alternate title for this post: all of these things are awesome, but some of them are way too expensive.
kit lili field of flowers romper from clementine rose, $34.99kit lili apples onesie from clementine rose, $38.00funny bunny lamp from urban outfitters, $48.00. ok. i am seriously thinking about splurging on this for the nursery. don't judge me.annamoa fabric from ikea, $7.99/yd. my awesome mother-in-law has kindly offered to make our crib dust ruffle and curtains. travis and i are seriously considering this fabric. i'm going to ikea with my mom next week, where i hope to see it in person.
i'm sure there will be a part 2 to this post sometime soon. i find new baby things everyday that i love. while travis is at work tonight, i'm going to do heaps of laundry, make my adorable nephew a shirt for his birthday, and pack for my last-minute trip to pennsylvania on monday! i'm not going to lie, i'll probably also spend a chunk of my time making and eating cinnamon buns and watching america's next top model re-runs. don't judge me!
i'm so excited to spend a few days in my hometown with my family and friends! i hope my parents let me cook them dinner one night. they have a big, beautiful, state-of-the-art kitchen and it is a joy to cook in. quite the departure from the cramped corian wonderland that is our kitchen. it's time for me to take a shower and get to the laundry cinnamon buns. so long!
p.s. thanks to all of you, we are now in the top 50! THANKS!!
