little bit.




Here's a tiny peek into the nursery. The reality is that the room is in disarray with piles everywhere, and there's not really much of a plan for the rest yet. But! The crib finally arrived and is set up, so I'm calling that progress.

Clint gets a kick out of that sock monkey sitting in the chair and says he can't wait until she's old enough to run around dragging it behind her. He still wishes we could skip the whole baby phase and have a toddler already. (We'll see if he decides to like babies when she gets here.)

  1. Clint and I think alike. I can't wait to actually hang out with our "kids." I'm sure I'll change my mind when I squeeze their little cheeks.

    And this room has your name written all over it! It's so beautiful! I love the colors and style.

    p.s. This seriously just makes my baby hunger roar.

  2. I love these glimpses! Your baby is gonna have such fantastic style ♡

  3. it's really up to her to determine how i feel about babies--a fact of which i will constantly make her aware. "if you want any siblings, daughter, you should probably stop crying so much."

    1. or more like:

      "if you want any siblings, daughter, you'll have to be so cool that your mother forgets what pregnancy is like."

  7. I love the chair and rug together. The crib legs are a lovely detail as well. Where is all from?
    Nothing beats a tiny baby falling asleep on you, but the toddler years are when the fun starts...

    1. the chair is a vintage swivel rocker. it's a la-z-boy, which i swore i would never allow in my home...but all the rockers i liked were way too expensive, and this one is comfy!

      rug is from anthropologie. crib is dwell studio.

    2. thank you for the info, Angela!
      And the rocker is my most valued purchase - with all the hours and hours spent in that chair, you definitely want comfy (and a look you love). enjoy!

  9. Haha; I love the little comment conversation you two are having. My husband is completely the same. He will be ready to be kicking a ball with our little boy the day he is born.

  13. Love that monkey. And that rug, good grief. And as cliche as it sounds, there is a very special dad-daughter bond. Your husband will love the cuddly baby stage. I can almost guarantee that he'll love it so much, he won't want her running around anytime soon!

    1. i'm pretty sure that's exactly what is going to happen.

  14. I know a lot of parents who didn't feel an immediate bond with our children. It's especially tough for the father who doesn't have breastfeeding as an instant icebreaker to feel connected. Take heart! It will happen, and it will probably blow you away. Those little beauties sneak their way into our hearts no matter what.

    Also: I am in love with your rug.

    1. thanks, christine. i've actually been worried that i won't bond with her right away but hopefully the breastfeeding will really help. and i'll just make clint hold her a lot :)

    2. i've been thinking about taping a couple of bottles to my chest to circumvent the very problem of which you speak.

      angela, feel free to delete this comment.

  15. oh goodness, i guarantee the mister will change his mind once he holds her for the first time. he's going to want to keep her like that forever!!
    and the nursery looks oh so cute!

  18. confession: i just added two more strips of fabric into your baby quilt after seeing this rug. i will have it finished by the end of this week if it kills me.

  19. oh oh oh, this peek is fantastic! your eye for color + pattern in unparalleled.

  20. your little girl is so lucky! my bedroom isn't even half as cute as hers! :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. within the past few years i've begun to see how amazing sock monkeys are (slow to the bandwagon!). your little girl will love dragging that pink one around the house. :)

  22. Oh wow, I love that rug. It's probably wrong that I want it in MY room.

    I can't wait to see the rest of it.

    Dillon was so scared of babies before we had any, but seeing as I had an emergency C-section and was stuck in bed the first few days of Audrey's life, he got to bond with her out of necessity. Baptism by fire, I guess.

  23. your crib is precious! we have 2 kiddos--I definitely remember hearing the words "so when is he going to walk? run? laugh?" my husband was much more into baby #2 as he had gotten the hang of the whole dad thing :)

  24. Tell Clint there is no need to attach bottles...

    Before I read this I was thinking, "hmmm, she put such limited views of the room so you can't see what's really happening in there."

    Woo wee! I can't wait to hold her. Oh, and I didn't feel an immediate bond with either of my kids. Some people cry. I just thought, Holy crap, how in the world was this thing in me less than a minute/hour/day ago?

  25. I am really liking that crib and would like to see more photos. I am also really liking Clint's comments.

  26. what a great room for your lucky lady.

    i love the little banter between you and clint. i don't think my husband or i expected to bond with our baby girl the way we did. i'll never forget: we were still in the hospital with her on thanksgiving day because she was in the nicu. i decided to take a nap and he said he was going to go find a place to watch football. when i woke up, he came back to the room and i asked him how the game was, and he sheepishly replied, "i don't know. i went to the nicu instead."

  27. I LOVE that rug. What a lucky baby!

    ReplyDelete
  28. My womb is aching--can that really happen?

    And sometimes i think I would prefer my baby {when/if I have one} to be a toddler but I am sure I will change my mind.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I absolutely LOVE that rug under the crib! So darling! I bet you are so excited!

    ReplyDelete
  30. my new baby girl is two weeks old today and my husband is the same way, he can't wait for her to walk and say and do things! but i adore this newborn phase, it's perfect. you'll love it!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I cant't believe you got that crib! Our guys sound like two peas in a pod...not liking any of the names I pick for our little girl and wanting to fast forward the infant stage.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Looks so great so far!! love. can't wait to see more!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Maybe instead of bottles you could just tape pacifiers to your chest, that might work better. No, she won't get any milk, but she'll get comfort, right? I am just worried about the bottles being securely attached. ;)

    1. yep. millionaires!

      no, i just chose to splurge a little bit on those two things that i loved and will last a really long time. and then i cut expenses on things like a rocking chair, which i picked up at goodwill for $20.

  35. It's beautiful! Can't wait to see the finished product. And I love that you chose to splurge important pieces that will serve you for years to come. It's such a smart move.
    That rocking chair is an awesome find!

    A little late comment on this post, but I was curious what size rug you got that fits well under that crib? I am worried if I get a similar rug in the 5 x 7 it might be too small...

    1. i just have the 5x8 i think it is. it's perfect. i thought the larger one might be a little too overwhelming in the room (plus it's way more expensive).
