Hello! I’ve taken a couple of photos of the nursery, which is basically just the crib and the changing table on one side of the room. The other side has two bookshelves (anchored of course!) holding 95% of the books in the house, a floor lamp, and an ottoman that 2 people can sit on. It sounds and looks boring, so there are no photos of that side.

So, here’s the crib! The butterfly mobile was a pain to assemble. The butterflies themselves have a string attached to them with a knot in the top. You’re supposed to thread the knot and the string into a hole at the ends of the plastic arms, and then pull the string through a tiny crack to a smaller hole. The knot rests on top of the hole and that’s how all of them hang. The string was thicker than the crack and so it took me several minutes to do each butterfly.

Sean definitely wants to have a boy in the future so I, armed with gift cards, shopped online for gender neutral bedding. This bumper was reasonably priced and could match with almost anything. I’m not in love with it, but I’m not entering into any contests for Best Nursery Ever.

When I was clearing up a few things in here yesterday, I thought the walls were drab and so I ordered some cute wall decals. My dilemma on that was whether I should go pink and girly or gender neutral but still cute. In the end, I went with Carter’s Tree Tops wall decals because I fell in love with them when shopping for a crib at Babies ‘R Us. How can you go wrong with adorable forest animals?
