Miles's Nursery



For those who haven't heard, Baby Boy has a name! Miles Oliver Lowery. :)

We have fabric picked out for Miles's nursery! I really like it - brown and turquoise/teal/aqua, polka dots and stripes. Mom is making crib sheets and curtains for us, so we'll just have to figure out how we want to paint (if we want to take that on), and what to do for wall art. I think I'd like to use 3 frames to put some of the fabric (pictured) on the wall. I'd also like to see if I can work in (friendly) monsters somewhere. I may just draw a smiling monster on butcher paper and use crayons to color it. And then frame that and put it up. I think I can probably find a cute handmade monster stuffed animal on etsy.com or somewhere, and it can keep Miles's diapers company on the dresser.

Gisèle's big-girl bed (mattress, at least) is here. We bought sheets, so we just have to wash them and then move the bed into her room, but at least it's here! Jamie and I are dreading the transition from crib to mattress. The thought of her being able to get out of bed, get into everything in her dresser drawers, and even open her door and come out of her room is exhausting. Hopefully, the whole transition goes well!

The nursery sounds wonderful! I can't wait to see photos of the final product. And I hope the transition goes well with Gisele. It's just one of those things that has to happen someday...

What? You're doubting practically perfect Gisele???? She'll probably shock you and stay in bed without even being told. Don't tell her to stay (it'll just give her ideas about getting up!) Also, wanted to suggest that you take her to every bathroom you come across so she realizes that it's not just the one at home she should use. XXXnana

Good luck with the big-girl bed transition! We've been fortunate that Lily's bedroom door swells in humidity, so she actually can't open it. LOL Maybe not great for safety reasons but it's handy right now! We plan to seal the door this winter so we don't have that problem next year.

The nursery will be adorable!

I like the name you chose and the colors and patterns you chose for the nursery. I bet time will fly by super fast now! Good luck with the big girl bed!
