Moving while pregnant is never fun, and even though we’ve had so much time at home waiting for our little guy to come, it seems like there’s always more to do. Here are some pretty previews of our new home and the things we’ve been getting ready for our newest arrival!
A lot of parents get a bassinet or co-sleeper for the first few months so baby can be in their room and nearby so you don’t have to go too far for those late night feedings. I was so happy when my mother offered to let us use this family heirloom for that purpose. My Great-Grandpa handmade this cradle for their first baby. My Grandpa slept in it, inherited it, used it for all of his children, then when my mother had children, she used it for all six of us, and now our baby will be one of the third generation of babies to use this cradle. It is still is beautiful shape and I made a simple set of gingham flannel sheets and a soft matching blanket that matches our room. It fits right next to our bed so nicely and I’m happy to have a place for him to sleep with so much history!
Our bedroom. I love the pale blues and soft whites.
The baby’s room is not quite finished, I will post a whole post about it when it is done but I couldn’t wait to show off the changing table. Brandon made it himself; he has worked so hard and it is finally done! I had the hardest time finding a changing table I liked. I wanted something that hid everything, but was simple, and fit our shabby chic/country home, plus I wanted to some day be able to take the changing topper off and it to still be cute. This was the perfect solution for us. I can’t wait to post more about it and about the other things he built for the baby’s room, now we just need a baby to put in it!
