Preston's Nursery

After I did laundry and packed our bags for the hospital in case my doctor says we need to head there after my ultrasound on Monday morning, we put the final touches on sweet P's nursery. The only thing left to do is buy a mattress and pick up the bedding from the seamstress.

Today after church we hung a birch wood branch and the blue linen drapes over his window. I love his nursery. Praying that I get to love on my baby in this room very, very soon.

Tony and I also tried our hands at a couple of DIY mobiles (one for over the changing table and one for over the crib).  Totally inexpensive, completely heartfelt, and extremely easy to make. I used two $0.79 wreaths from Michael's and the birds are Christmas ornaments from Crate and Barrel. Tony used monofilament to assembly the ornaments to the wreath. Here's our craftiness.

these are metal so they sound like  wind chime when you tap them

Now I just need a healthy baby to bring home to complete my nest.  Here's the rest...

We're off to take maternity pictures now, but first I need to give a shout out to my Gherkin for joining in on the nesting that took place here this weekend.  I love you bunches.

The bird mobiles turned out so cute! And I am still loving those monograms hanging above the crib.

Still praying for Preston!!!
