Word on the street is my due date has come and gone. Little Carter Joseph (yes, that’s his official name!) has decided to be stubborn as a mule. Much like his maternal grandmother (ask Scott about that nickname next time you see him). I’ve been thankful for the extra time between work and delivery to get my house in order. I’ve been baking, cleaning, organizing and most importantly…finishing the nursery! It’s finally done as of today, woohoo! I thought I’d share it with you guys since most of you can’t come see it in person.
The below picture is from the hallway peering into his room. It’s not a huge space, but it works.
This is standing at the big window looking backward at the closet and dresser.
I made a little memory board with some of the leftover fabric we used to reupholster the chair. I currently have pictures of his cousins. I need more pictures of friends and family so he knows them all!
I felt the need to paint his closet. I like the color of green and want to use it everywhere! The kid will be well outfitted for the first year of his life.
This is standing at the closet door looking back over the crib and just to the right of his initials is the door to the hallway.
I found these initials at Anthropologie. I think they are perfect for his hats and fleeces. A true northwest boy.
His little bookshelf is always growing with a new library. The hat and boots are from mimi & popop. How cute are they? That kid will know he’s got roots in texas, that’s for sure.
I love his bedding. It’s little mushrooms and squirrels. It makes me giggle and is so different and cute.
Just above his crib, we had three photos we took on some of our travels stretched onto canvas. The one on the left is from Sorrento, Italy. The middle is obvious…Eiffel Tower at midnight on Jan 1 this year. And the right is Tower Bridge in London. We want him to feel a sense of adventure and have a desire to travel, so we are brainwashing him right away. I hope it works. 🙂
Hope you enjoyed the little tour of his bedroom. It’s just missing one thing – a baby!! Come on little Carter, we’re waiting to meet you!
