This nursery has been my pride and joy for the last couple weeks as we await the birth of our true pride and joy, MORGAN! I themed her nursery with flowers since they are some of my favorite things on Earth. What's prettier than a flower... or a baby girl??
The arm chair is a glider....and so comfy especially since I put the faux bear skin pelt on it!! I'm sure we'll use the fluffy pelt on the floor once Morgan is ready to sit up by herself. It's so fun to picture these things!
For those of you who have been reading my blog for a while....you might remember the dish of marble eggs in this photo? They we my lucky eggs I bought while I was going through IVF #2...they must be really lucky cause they worked and we're pregnant!! I figured they have to live in the babies room! I also especially like the all the curtains I cinched with an orchid flower. (yeah it's not a real flower)
My dad made this corner cabinet years ago, and it was in the house I grew up in. I recently painted it so it would match the new baby furniture...it came out perfectly! I can't wait to tell our baby girl that her grandfather made this piece of furniture!
We have a baby gate up already to train our dogs so that they know they are not allowed in this room. Sorry puppies..baby only! Fortunately its one of those gates that swings open and shut easily so its no trouble for humans to come in and out of the room...especially when we'll be carrying our little Morgan!
This is a view of the Ohio River just east of downtown Cincinnati from my glider...I love this view and I know I will look at it a lot when I sit there to nurse her.
The chair with the bunny on it was given to me when I was 5 years old and it was in the room I grew up in...it feels so special to be able to use it in my daughter's room after all these years!!
See the doggies at that gate? It works! :)
I'm waiting for her first baby picture for the frame on the left. The one with the pregnant bean is a card my mother sent me when we first learned we were pregnant. I have always been called "Bean" by my parents so the card was very fitting and extremely special since my mom had been saving it for 5 years hoping that some day she would be able to surprise me with it!! It says, "Bean Expecting?"
I glued rhinestones in the center of these flowers to make them more sparkly...pictures just don't show how glittery and pretty they make the room look!
I glued the rhinestones on all of the frames too...and I did the flower collages in the frames! I had so much fun creating all of these. I'm really looking forward to the day when Morgan and I can go through all the pictures on the wall and name each kind of flower together....daffodil, lily, orchid, hydrangia, rose, etc..
I decorated this lampshade myself...it's a one of a kind!! And that's a framed picture of our first ultrasound at 7 weeks....can't believe it's been 15 weeks since then!!! Only 18 more to go til baby girl gets here!!!!
Sorry I posted SO many pictures...I guess it just shows how much I love her baby room!! It think it looks so pretty in person...its so hard to capture a room in photos...that's why I posted so many pictures! :)
I know that when she's born some of the flowers and breakables on the surfaces will be replaced with more useful things like wipe warmers and stacks of diapers, etc, etc. I also know that her room wont always look so perfect, but for now I'm enjoying it all set up. The things that get put up when she's a toddler can come back out again when she's a little girl...it's all part of the fun!!
Thanks for looking at these photos and sharing in my excitement!!
