The Completed Nursery...FINALLY!

Well, Amelia is nearing 5 months, so I figured it was a good time to put the finishing touches on the nursery and call it complete! It was a process trying to figure out what to do in there. Originally, since we didn't know her gender before she was born, we were going to do everything in neutrals. Well, once she was here, I couldn't help but want to put some feminine touches in her room. So, the base of the room is still neutral, but most of the accents have that touch of pink, which could easily be swapped out for a more masculine look in the future if needed!

This is the 9-months-to-refinish crib that Amelia's daddy put so much love, time and energy into! It turned out fantastic!

The frames above the crib have coordinating scrapbook paper and silk flowers that we used in decor at our wedding! Ah, sentiments!

This butterfly mobile cost me less than $5 and 30 minutes to make! I catch Amelia reaching up and trying to catch the butterfly's sometimes!

This was my splurge item in the room! The comfy chair is a definite must for the nursery!

We opted to buy a dresser instead of a more typical changing table. This way, once we no longer need the changing table, she will already have a dresser, we won't have to buy another piece of furniture, and I won't have to worry about storing a cumbersome changing table!

Above the dresser are frames that hold a birth announcement, scripture verses, and a box of roses that "the aunts" brought to the hospital when she was born.

This was a super simple way to add a personalized touch. Scrap burlap and left-over felt!

And to hold her growing collection of hair accessories, a frame from hunny's grandmother, and wrapping paper from Amelia's first Christmas gift from her Aunt, Uncle and Cousin!

Baby Essential Set

A few weeks ago, I completed an order for a matching set of burp cloths, blanket and nursing cover. The momma doesn't know the gender, so these are neutral enough to be used for a baby boy or girl! Here's how they turned out:

Owl Baby Shower

This past Sunday afternoon, a group of women gathered in our home to pray for the Smith's new baby! The Mommy & Daddy did not want to find out the gender, and they are not giving away the name quite yet (parents after our own heart!). Customarily, we only have true baby showers, with gifts and all, for a first baby. This is the Smith's 3rd child, but we of course still want them to feel special and show how excited we are with each and every new child! So, our solution is to have a time of prayer and fellowship. These showers are a special and beautiful time for everyone!
