Hello everyone!

Thanks so much for the comments about the colors of our nursery! We are really happy with the way it's turning out.

Jon and I aren't huge into pinks and purples, so we opted for browns and greens with subtle hints of purples and pinks here and there. So far I really like the way it looks. We still have a lot of work to do... but it is coming along nicely. We ordered some really cute wall decals from Etsy.com and I am eagerly awaiting their arrival. We ordered white birch trees to go on the big brown wall, there are 5 of them, and they are all about 8 feet tall. We also ordered 6 light pink bird decals that will be placed throughout the trees to look like they are flying. Since Jon and I are LOVERS of the outdoors and all things adventure, we thought it would be perfect to make Sophie's room more adventurous. Since we have such a huge love for hiking, we wanted her room to grasp that idea and have a "woodsy" feel.

I have also been collecting owls here and there to add as little decorative pieces to her room. At my baby shower back home, we received a couple of owls from blabla.com. Here is a picture of one of them, from the blabla website.

Isn't that the cutest thing ever!!

My dad has always loved owls and because of that, I grew to love them. Especially the really cute stuffed animals like the one above...

Also, I thought I'd share our baby bedding too. It's from Pottery Barn and couldn't go any better with our room! Birds, trees, and owls... pinks, greens, and browns = perfect! We were lucky enough to receive the quilt and pillow sham as a gift at our baby shower. Now we are waiting to order the rest of the bedding, as it is on back order at the moment. Here is a picture of the bedding:

Anyway... I'll get to the main point of this post, which is obviously stated in the title, our progress on the nursery so far! Here are some pictures.

The orange curtains will be taken down and replaced.
Not sure what color we want to use instead,
maybe green or light pink...
And we'll definitely be getting a new light fixture.
We are thinking a really pretty chandelier...
because you know that is really outdoorsy?!?

It is definitely coming along! It is such a great feeling to have so much accomplished already, and all of her furniture put together! We had a lot of fun this last weekend getting everything done. I still have some touch up painting to do today, which is why there is still blue tape on the wall and a drop cloth on the ground... but after that, we will be ALL done with the paint! Now we just need to buy a rocking chair/glider and we should have all of her furniture bought. Exciting!

Anyway, I'm off to work in the nursery! I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday! I'll be back tomorrow with a 24 week update...

Until tomorrow, Tschuss!
