The Nursery: Current State

We're 50% done with the nursery. And I'm happy to report that the 50% is the important stuff - the crib and rocker! The other side of the room - not so much. We still need a dresser (which will double as our changing table) and I haven't had the best luck stalking Craigslist. Everything is either a scam, super poor quality or way overpriced. So the hunt continues. I am getting a little anxious to find the dresser since we had our first shower this past weekend and now I'm itching to be able to put all those tiny, adorable baby clothes away. Hopefully we can find one soon!

So when looking at these pictures, keep in mind that the other side of the room looks like a bomb went off. We still have a full size mattress propped up against the wall and all the shower gifts are stacked up, waiting to be organized and put away. Just keeping it real!This was actually before we set the crib up. But that's our wonderful rocker (From WALMART of all places - $200!) and the ottoman pouf I found on Joss and Main for cheap. We plan on painting that side table white.And there's our crib (and my big 31 week belly). Ok, so obviously I still need to make the bedding (details, details!) and we need to hang the monogrammed fabric panels that I made over the crib. But at least the crib is put together!
Testing out the rocker - LOVE it! I seriously go into the nursery once or twice a day, sit in the rocker and just think about how crazy it will be when we actually have a tiny person living there.

So that's what things are looking like in baby updates right now. My first shower was AMAZING and I have another one this weekend, so that's exciting. This baby is already super spoiled and loved!

Looking great (you and the nursery!) I have been the laziest blogger. I have been reading your posts but not commenting since I have not been logging in to blogger.

We have the crib and dresser/changing table put together and I have the curtains ordered (changed my plan for the curtains to make life easier). My baby shower is this weekend so that will be fun! Hope you continue to feel good :)

I love that wall, and the chair from Walmart is a nice surprise! I'm 31 weeks, too...having our first shower this weekend, I can't wait!
