Baby’s Nursery Reveal


Ian and I spent so much time and effort perfecting the nursery for our baby girl.  The gray walls, the sweet, hand-painted, alphabet mural containing the letters in all three of our children’s names, all those little outfits and shoes organized and re-organized as we wait for her arrival… and finally, two weeks before her due date, it is finished!  I hope she loves it as much as we do! 🙂 IMG_0460











“Walking On Sunshine” (The most amazing oil painting gifted to our daughter by an extremely talented architect)


Coincidence??? I think NOT :)

Not quite finished, but getting closer 🙂


We have been getting a lot of inquiries about what we are going to name our little boy, and some of our most observant companions on this journey have even come to the conclusion that the letters on the wall may not simply be a splattering of random letters, but instead the key to discovering our little Man-fant’s identity.

Well.. You are correct- and in our typical “big reveal” style-we cannot simply spill the oh-so-magical beans.

The mumbo-jumbo of scrambled letters are in fact every letter of the little guy’s name- First, Middle and Last.  (Some of the letters may be used more than once).

At this time, we would like to invite everyone to submit their guesses.  Obviously, all those who guess correctly will be able to see the baby, and those who fail to guess correctly will be shunned from his life forever… Sword and the Stone style. 😉

Good Luck.  No pressure.

Construction Day

Today we are working on the baby room!

First we had to pick out our three colors of paint.  I thought this would be a daunting task, however I actually walked over to the wall of paint chips and got paint for the very first card I pulled out.  🙂 At least this step was easy.

Paint Colors

Then we had to fill all the holes (we previously had a headboard hanging on this wall), sand down the putty, and paint the room with our base color- Cumberland Fog.

Look at that boy work 🙂

Next, Ian sketched all the letters on the wall BY HAND! (And I thought we needed an overhead projector! I guess I underestimated my hubby the artist!)


Now, we are painting all of the lightest color letters- using the “Little Dipper” paint.

I’m sure this will take us a little while, but when the paint dries, we will go back and add in all of our dark colored letters.


Almost finished with the walls… we’ll have to save the decorating part for next weekend. 🙂
