Nursery Photos

Well, I promised this morning I would post some pictures of the nursery, so here you go.  This first one is the same one I posted quite some time ago, when we first got the crib in there and stuff.  The 9 little frames in the background are frames that I painted and then they just have some really cute clip art in them.  I know that sounds pretty corny, but they look great and it's exactly what I wanted! :)This one is the crib with the mobile.  It's huge! But I know it's kind of hard to see in this photo.  It's super cool though.  It's super bright and all sorts of colors, sounds, etc.  I think the baby will love it.  We also have this little seascape light toy thingy you can see at the foot of the bed.  The straps are too short to fit around the side part because it's a convertible bed, so it actually has a headboard type look.  But I think there is a way to get the straps through, I just haven't gotten around to it yet. :)  And you can just ignore the rest of the stuff that is in the crib. I don't really have a place for it all, so it just finds its way to the crib! :)

This is kind of a crappy picture, but you can see the valances and the little rocking chair that was mine when I was little... ignore the rest of the stuff in the background - that's all my craft stuff that still needs to find a new home!This is our make-shift dresser.  Since our whole bedroom set thing didn't really work out, we just cleaned off this shelf that I had and I got a bunch of different colored "drawers" to put in there.  It works for now.  I think we only have 5 of the 9 drawers filled, so I guess we have plenty of room to grow! :)  I love the little words that I got to put on the wall.  I painted them the same colors as the other little frames and I love it! :)  Oh yeah, and I found this little green and white lamp at Target yesterday and it matches perfectly with everything else in the room! :)
And here is my rocker/glider.  We probably paid too much for it, but it is oh so comfortable!!! And I figure I'll probably be spending lots of time in it, so I wanted to get something that wasn't going to hurt my butt and back!! :)
Here's our little bookshelf and storage stuff...  I just keep random things in those drawers.  Burp cloths, toys, I don't even know what else... probably just extra stuff.  I can't even remember what's in there... Maybe I should go look! :)
That's the end of the nursery... Here are just some other pics of stuff.  Here is our swing and playpen where the baby will sleep for the first couple months.

And this is probably too hard for you to see, but this is the adorable "Baby's First Thanksgiving" outfit that I got.  It's super cute. :)  You will see more pictures of this outfit actually on the baby, but for now, this is what you get! :)
Well, that's it for now!  I am going to go finish my laundry and get ready for my last HALF day at work tomorrow!!!  I cannot wait! :)

Hope you enjoyed these pictures!

Looks great Hietikko! I'm excited for you guys, good luck with labor. Are you going natural child birth? or epidural? Can't wait to find out if it's a boy or girl.
I'll be thinking of you two.
Love gable
