Stop the press... the nursery is ready!

WARNING: this is a very picture-heavy post, but we've made big progress this weekend, and I'm so excited!

Of course I am biased, but I think the pictures do not even begin to do justice to our completed nursery. Completed, of course, is a loose term. We're already thinking of things we want to add, but, for now, we're just so excited about the room. This is what you see when you walk in. Here's a closer look at the bedding: (Freshly steamed) curtains and table:
Glider and quilt (and we're particularly proud of the corner shelves and animals):And the changing table and adorable print from my Aunts Mary and Jan:
I know we'll be making additions, but we wanted to go ahead and share. I have to give Jeremy major kudos - he has been absolutely wonderful, cheerfully hanging things and assembling all kinds of baby gear. Our cars each have car seat bases installed, and Jeremy even practiced getting the car seat loaded. I'm sure our son will be just as compliant:Just two more pictures because I have to actually get up before 10:00 a.m. tomorrow. Stupid work...

1. I owe my Aunt Julie Eubanks a huge thanks for the absolutely precious pillow, blanket, and burp cloth set that she made herself. I'm in awe of her talent and kindness, and I love the three pieces. Thank you, Julie!
2. I'm sure Uncle Johnny will appreciate the shout out for his nursery contribution: a door hanger and sign of things to come:
Off to sleep... while I still can! ; )

Oh my goodness! The nursery looks great! You will be so glad you've already done all of this work NOW, before Baby R. arrives!

You should have jeremy practice putting the car seat in the car with a watermelon in it so he can get use to the weight.

Practice like you Play!
