As I sit here relaxing on our new glider and ottoman in the nursery I can’t believe that in 2 short months we will be welcoming a baby boy into our lives. We still have some things to do to prepare for his big arrival, but we are getting close. We were able to get the closet pretty much put together this weekend. It only consists of a tension rod attached to a dresser with a few bins for storage. I don’t think (at least for a year or so) he will need to have much hanging, and he will have plenty of drawer space for his tiny adorable onesies :). We also got a cube shelving set to use for random toys and books.
The one thing that is looking bare in the nursery are the walls. When we were in Virginia a few weeks ago I saw this adorable button elephant on a piece of canvas. I was about to buy it for the nursery but then I saw the price. Tony suggested that I make one. So that is what I did this weekend. It took a while to make, but I have to say it turned out pretty well and I enjoyed putting it all together. Now to think of some other crafty things that I can do to fill up the space on the walls.
On another note, if there are any moms reading my blog let me know what was helpful in your hospital bag. I want to have it together by the end of next month just to put my mind a ease.
