Date Night: Crib Assembly

We are unbelievably excited for this little man's arrival, and we have been trying to get our ducks in a row before he gets here. One of the sweetest moments was Ken and I (ok, mostly Ken) assembling his crib- a special gift from my aunt and uncles!

 My mom and I painted the nursery a few weekends ago- such a project! I am hoping to do another post to explain the step-by-step process of painting stripes. It was so much work, but I am in love with the results!
 We are so excited about the crib, it's a Jenny Lind crib that's also converts into a toddler bed for when our little guy gets bigger. 
I couldn't resist putting the oh-so-soft blanket Ken's mom made and the "lovie" from Ken and I in the bed... and then it still seemed empty, so I put his "going home" outfit in for good measure... and then added the crochet carrot from Aunt Kari.
 An up close shot of the beautiful bumper pads and crib skirt my mom made- I love love love this fabric from Fabric Worm.
 Having the room in order makes it seem so real, even though it's hard to wrap our minds around what it will be like to become parents.
