Thanks to a weekend of snowy flurries, I’ve finally gathered together all the best shots of Reese’s sunny, cozy nursery. Despite the fact that we’ve lived in this apartment for nearly two years, Reese’s room is the only one that is really *nearly* complete. It was a true labor of love, and the resulting space is a favorite for all of us.
As soon as I found out I was pregnant, planning the nursery was probably one of the most fun tasks, especially since I spent so much of my early pregnancy sick at home. My sister and good friends created several inspiration Pinterest boards (general Nursery Inspiration and a special board for Baby Bing) and it was really fun to see the ideas come together over time into the real nursery.
The bright room is the smallest of our three bedrooms, but still plenty spacious for playtime and lounging. Before Reese, we kept the room mostly empty and it was used as an occasional second guest room. The room really came together only after Reese’s birth. We received the dresser, wardrobe, and chair in late August and the bookshelf and rug were delivered while Reese and I were still staying at the hospital. Thankfully, my parents were around to help with putting everything together and my dad and Martin worked hard to hang things and have the bookshelf assembled before we got home. The final additions were made in November when my sister visited and we finally hung the rest of the art on the walls. Only one major change is still underway: a larger, faceted mirror for over the dresser is on order (the first arrived broken).
Since Reese slept in our room in a Moses basket until mid-December, it has been fun to see her transition to spending more time in her room. You can tell she loves it. She really loves laying on the changing pad and staring at the mirror (which is why we want a bigger one to better fit the space), and often is the most giggly while laying there. Even when she is cranky in the last hour before bedtime, floor time on the rug with her toys usually relaxes her. Now, at bedtime, when we put her in her crib she smiles at us, cozies up to her flatout bear, sucks her thumb, and is off to dreamland.
