*Faceplant* and nursery photos

Some of the artwork is hung, the rug is down, the accessories are assembled, the changing pad is installed, the rest of the clothing/toy boxes are sorted, a pad and bedding for the cradle are ordered... and, it looks like a nursery.

But you can judge for yourself:





The cradle my great-grandfather made for my mother when I was born, and the swing we assembled. Yes, that is my teddy bear in the swing. Yes, I still sleep with it. WHAT?



Is that not the most gorgeous glider rocker you've ever seen??



That's the dresser before the changing pad was installed. All of Elsa's clothing has been sorted and folded into drawers, or packed up in boxes to grow into. (I gotta say, manufacturer sizing sure varies!!)







Now, I am going to go fall into bed. None of it was very hard work, but it was still a LOT of work.

I was just wondering the same thing!

Ditto the compliments on the nursery.

Manufacturer's size labels in baby clothing are...entertaining. Yeah, that's a good word for it.

Just like calling a certain former boss's random squirreling away of inactive files an "idiosyncratic filing system" was a good phrase.

God bless your face off for not a LICK of pink. ::fist bump::

A good chunk of her clothing may be pink (it's all been free, so I'm not going to be choosy!), but I figure that can be at least mitigated a little by a bright-colored nursery. I was never a pink-loving child.

It looks lovely! I like the rug a lot.

Thank you! It's a magic rug - it matches absolutely everything and makes the color scheme look deliberate, even though I had not at all planned on a bright red chair, and my curtain selection was very limited (and made well after the walls had been painted!).

Thank you! We were reading off lists and lists of baby names, and when we got to that one, we both paused. It stuck!

Props to your great-grandfather for a lovely cradle, and to you and Jake for a lovely house! And it's an adorable teddy bear. :)

Isn't that a gorgeous cradle? It rocks really well, too - start it, and it keeps going for a long while.
