Nursery...In Progress

My original goal was to have Rose's nursery completed by the time Camille's opened. However, seeing that we are going to open in 1 WEEK, my plans have changed! Now I am just hoping to have it finished by the time she arrives in January! While we were in Tulsa at training, Mom and Dad oversaw a little construction at our house. We sheetrocked Rose's room, turned a portion of the attic into a large storage closet, painted the bathroom and staircase, and turned a nook in our room into a 2nd closet. It was like coming home to a set of "While You Were Out." Thanks so much Mom and Dad for all of your hard work during those 2 weeks.

Rose's pink glider came in this week! Clark and I love it so much. It is my new hangout. Whenever the phone rings, I find myself chatting away in the chair just looking out the window and thinking about how many hours Rose and I are going to spend in that chair. I can't wait.

Pardon my PJ's...Mama in the glider!

Today, I met Mom and Janet (my sweet MIL) at Siegel's Baby Room where we ordered Rose's crib and dresser!!! Our order should be here in about a month.

Once the crib comes in, we are going to have the bedding made with this fabric. It took me forever to find fabric that I loved, but I finally found it. I am in love with this little collection.

The solid pink fabric will be the bumper, the stripe will be the ruffle and ties on the bumper, and the flowery spiraly fabric will be the bed skirt and drapes on the window.

So, as you can see, we are working slowly but surely on the nursery and I can't wait to see it all come together. In the mean time, enjoy these pictures of the work in progress!

I just had to take a picture of the precious dress Janet bought for her granddaughter :) Matches her nursery perfectly!!
