Bump Watch 2008, 36 weeks, 6 days

Living large, my friends, living large. 20 days to go!

36 weeks, 6 days

And although we still have a few things to do in the nursery (i.e., awaiting the arrival of our crib mattress, putting up crown molding, adding a brown ribbon along the bottom edge of the curtains, art to hang about the changing table, etc.), I want to share our progress so far.

Here's the view when you walk in.

The dresser we're using as a changing table.

Here is the set of shelves and desk we got from Crate and Barrel. (Don't worry - they're very secured to the wall.)

And the crib with my favorite part of the nursery - the hippo decal we got from Etsy!

It's hard to tell from the pictures, but the walls are a light shade of brown, which contrasts nicely with all the white furniture and pink accents. I adore the way the room turned out, and sometimes I just stand there and stare, imagining what it'll be like to actually use the room when she's here.

  3. Looks great. Wow, Em-Dash already has her own computer! Way to start her off early. Will she be starting a blog?

    I have one comment on the room set-up (but I'm sure you've thought of it all already). You need something to put all the diaper-changing essentials on right next to the changing table. That is a must!
