The Finished Nursery!

We have finally finished the nursery! I feel so good about it! I think Chris and I (with a lot of help from family and friends) did a great job! I can't wait to bring our baby girl home to her new room! Thank you so much to our parents who have been our biggest support. They've given up Saturdays to help wash clothes, hang ceiling fans, put together furniture and help brainstorm. My father in law, Roy, has given up so much of his time to paint the trim and doors and help Chris out with his honey do lists. We are both eternally grateful to have such wonderful parents and one of the things we look forward to most is watching them become grandparents. We know Evie will never fall short of anything with these four around to back up her parents. Big thank you also, to Evie's Uncle PDW (William) for helping put together her nursery! I know he is going to be a great uncle! We love you all! Also, to my BFF Alycia who came from Las Vegas to visit and helped so much by helping me figure out where and how to hang everything! She also drove (along with her mother) to Lowe's in Vegas while we were in Olive Branch to help pick out the paint color! My design skills are slim to none so it was a huge help! Clearly this little girl is very loved already!

So here are some pictures along with some of the special things in her nursery...

The view of her crib! I think she has 10,000 things that make soothing noises and or project things! :)

Evie's glider, the sign her Auntie Libba made her, first handprints and footprint frames from Ms. McMeekin, and an old side table from my bedroom. The side table has all of her books on it, her noise maker and her lady bug that projects constellations on the ceiling! The drawer has all of her little nursing accessories in it and her burp cloths!

Her rocking horse that was handmade by our cousins Ted and Liann! His name is Teddy, on the bottom are the FedEx blocks that her Daddy bought for her! I think they are adorable!

Evie's little princess robe that her Daddy picked out!

The bow hanger that I made for her -- I am not the craftiest person so I was quite proud of this!

Diapering bin ready to go!

Receiving blankets!


Evie's lady bug bathing suit!

Evie's diaper bag -- all packed and ready to go! The little giraffe is a rattle her Daddy picked out especially for her! The diaper bag was a gift from Alycia!

Lady bug on her blanket!

Evie sign from Auntie Libba! It's so cute! And so special to us!

Changing table area!

Shelf above the changing table!

FedEx plane from her Daddy!

Her first Prayer Book from her Nana Dickens.

Blankie from Auntie Leslie, the picture frame that her Auntie Amber made her and her Princess Fund bank from Chris' friend Carolyn.

That is all for now! I will add some more of the closet that her Daddy put together for her! He did such a wonderful job! He is going to be the best Daddy to Evie Bug!
