Party at her crib

This is what we did for at least a good hour tonight. And that ball in her mouth, well...she grabbed it out of the garage when we went out there to get some meat out of the freezer.

I'm trying hard to forget about the fact that I'm pretty sure I saw our dog Buck playing with it the other day....and now, well, it's in my daughter's mouth. Awesome.

Obviously I'm in the middle of cleaning out her drawers and making room for clothes that actually fit. It's a project I started, oh I don't know, a good six months ago??

While I'm at it, I promised some of you that I would post pictures of my love's room. And from looking at the photo above, you know I resorted to using the pictures that were taken before Kate was born, right after we finished it, before their were bins of old clothes, laundry baskets of clean clothes that instead of folding and putting away I just use right out of the basket, and an already-tired crib bumper thrown on the changing table that I just had to have but ended up using a total of two times.







We had a little nook in the corner of the room that I thought would be perfect for a window bench seat so M to the Izz-A built this and I painted it and made the cushion. And I haven't done anything crafty since this. It must have been the pregnancy hormones.




This wall looks a little different now because I've added more photos of our family and I hung my belly cast that I made when I was nine months pregnant (which took up a pretty big portion of the wall).




The initials above her crib are from Wise Decor.

Kate's room is so stinkin cute, I love it! I wanted to do a pink and green theme room for my 5 year old but she insisted on purple, so I found something with purple that still had a bunch of bright colors in it.

I love that bench seat she will use that a lot as she gets older. Good job hubby! :)

Rebecca Jo said...

Such a girly room with all that pink! And I had to look back at your belly cast... your hands covering your boobs cracked me up! Only you could give a special touch like that! What a cool thing to have in her room!

Don't get me wrong, I love my little man, but oh how this makes me want a girl soooo bad! Her room is adorable. I did the best I could with the cowboys decor, but you just can't beat pink and green! You did good girl. I need one of those little benches myself. AdOrAbLe :)

Her room is so pretty and precious! Very girly! Your post makes me itch to be pregnant with a girl because it would be so fun to girl a room up like that - we don't find out until March 11th!!!

Chic Runner said...

Love the pictures, her room is so cute! :) Glad she is entertained by a dog toy.. :)

Cindy said...

So pretty and girlie! Love it!

Melissa said...

Her room is super cute girl! I LOVE the monogram!! And don't worry about those dog germs on that ball! Baby slobber has TONS of uses.. including neutralizing dog slobber! Wait until your sweetie sticks a big 'ol sticker on those pretty pink walls and tries to get it off with a pencil tip!! Oh... I don't know HOW I came up with that scenario except that maybe it happened at my house THIS WEEK! Fun times.

Suzette said...

I love this... You will definitely have to give me feedback on my post that I'm about to do on Kyah's nursery. I am at a standstill on ideas!

jamielynn said...

Seems like just yesterday I previewed those pictures before Kate made her debut! Man time flies!

BAJohnson said...

Your daugher's room is too cute! I clicked on over to the link of the body cast and I am thinking there is NO possible way that you were ever that big. If you really were THAT big and now you are THAT small then I am officially THAT jealous!

Les said...

Love the room and the chandelier is awesome! Props to Matt for building the window seat!

morewineplease said...

love the room, love the colors! love the chandelier! You did awesome!

Katy said...

Her room is darling...like the floors. I know what you mean about organizing her clothes/closet and getting rid of the things that don't fit anymore. I need to do that all of the time w/ my three....I should prob. be doing that right now instead of being on the computer. Eeek.

Heather said...

Love the room! So girly!

I can't believe y'all made the window bench. So jealous of your skills! I love it!
