We did one thing this weekend that I'm so thankful for, and that was get the crib mattress and set up Baby W's bed! 

I know it doesn't seem like a big thing, but it's one thing down. 

And the poor baby doesn't have anything else in his room right now, save for a ladder, clean clothes sorted in piles on the floor and a small table...but by golly, he has his crib set up! :)

I really want to get a monogrammed pillow like this to put in his crib for decoration {because I know he won't use it; I just think it's cute}, but that's to come. 


I ordered his baby bedding from Carousel Designs: Blue and Taupe Paisley Crib Bedding. I only ordered the bumper, bed skirt and rocking chair pad. The sheets {I got blue and taupe} are jersey knit sheets from Babies 'R' Us

I'm having the curtains for his room made out of the same striped fabric that's in the crib bumper {here} with a nailhead trim cornice {here}. 

As far as the furniture, my parents purchased the crib for us, and we're using the glider and dresser that my siblings and I all used in our nurseries when we were little. The dresser will double as a changing table. The little table I referenced earlier was Brandon's grandmother's, and will be used next to the glider to house a lamp, etc. 

As soon as that all gets here in November, I can really start organizing and putting away! 

As far as decor goes, I'm still debating a few things, but I have asked my mom and her friend to make this wooden monogram for above the dresser/changing table and I ordered this from Etsy for the shelf above his bed. But other than that, I've got nothin'! 

I can't wait for y'all to see his nursery once it's complete!

  1. I love his bedding! The colors are perfect!

    Let me know if I can monogram anything for you! I'd be happy to do any pillows, blankets, hats, onesies... you name it! :)
