Thank Goodness He's In Charge of the Nursery

I really don't think I could have done things any better. Bill has outdone himself on the nursery and it is really shaping up and looking amazing. He works so hard and he's such a little perfectionist, while I'm impatient and want things done yesterday...thank goodness he's in charge of this project because I couldn't be more excited to welcome our little girl home to such an amazing place (though we all know the nursery is for us because I've heard babies can just sleep in dresser drawers for a few months -- but don't tell Bill I said that).

You ROCK, Mr. Bill, thank you for all your hard work!...XO

Here's a little preview of how it's coming together...

He actually made the leaves and pot from paper bought at the craft store.  
The light is from IKEA.

After lots of research and pricing, Bill figured he could just build shelving for about $50. 
Love my little McGyver

The tree is finally up and the crib in. I think it looks perfect!

Our bent wood chair that bounces (instead of rocks).

I guess you can't start your ABCs too early, even if it's by osmosis.  
The mobile is on a spinning motor and plays "twinkle, twinkle little star"

That's it for now. More to come.

And did I say we get our 3D scan on Saturday!!!! Yippeee!!!

    1. Agreed! Hopefully it will be both! And yes, Bill is a genius when it comes to home projects! I am just a very grumpy apprentice.

  10. Does bill do crown molding too? We could so keep him entertained while you're waiting for baby in DC! :)
    She is due on my birthday. That's pretty cool. We'll be in DC until the end of May so we can definitely get together. I wanna meet your little girl too!!!

    1. Well thanks! We got it at pottery barn kids. It actually doesn't play twinkle twinkle little start it plays that song "momma (or daddy) gonna but you a diamond ring". If that makes sense. It's still very cute. Congrats in your twin girls!!!
