Baby Shower and Nursery Updates

This past Wednesday, our Bible Study threw us a baby shower in lieu of us doing our lesson ... we belong to such a great group of believers and we look forward to Wednesday nights. We are forever blessed for them taking the time, effort, and resources to join in celebrating our bringing home Silas. Thanks everyone ... it was perfect.

Look at that cake! How awesome is that...


Us with all our presents...

More work occurred on the nursery since the last nursery update. The walls are painted ... the window seat is finished except for the doors ... those are on order and will hopefully be delivered in the next week or so...Ambers mom sewed all those pillows (except for the elephant that came with our bedding).

The window seat so far...I think Amber did a great job picking out the fabrics to go with the room...

The window seat is on the opposite side of the room from where Silas' crib will be. The latest project has been working on that wall. Amber wanted to do a shelf above his crib and do some trim on the wall below ... well, the trim isn't done yet (this week's project) but the shelf did get up this weekend...

The wall after painting and before the shelf...

The view when you come into the room...

The shelf with her animal picture frames and our weekend craft project...don't worry, we haven't filled in the picture frames yet so nothing to zoom in on :)

Amber had some leftover fabric from the window seat so we put attached it to a circle and then mounted an 'S' for our boy's name on it painted the color of the window seat. His bedding has circles with letters so it goes well with it ... plus, it ties the 2 sides of the room together. Amber's mom would be proud :)

The goal is to get the trim done on the white wall and a floating shelf Amber wants built to house an elephant by the end of next weekend ... hopefully. After that, it should be close to done ... well, we gotta get new carpet (we decided to take the plunge based on God's gifts He's blessed us with ... unreal ... that needs to be a post sometime soon) and then load it with the furniture that is currently in the basement. GOOD times!

The room looks awesome! I so so hope that you'll be traveling soon to pick up little man Silas (love the name!), and that all three of you can meet up with us at the BU =)

How wonderful that you have such loving and enthusiastic friends and family sharing in the joy of your very own miracle in the making.

Renee said...

P.S. I'm sure you can find some room for cubbies stuff in your little one's room.

Paul and DeeDee said...

he is in the home depot a lot:) He says he likes your chair rail shelf.

Renee said...

Hey troy the bookshelf/toy cubby we bought at target along with the blue storage cube you see on the other side of the room near the closet doors. on the bigger one 4 of the cubbies are open in the back so we put fabric bins in them to store things like blocks or stuff that has more pieces to it. We did have to put it togeather but it wasnt that hard. Its pretty heavy and sturdy once you get it together.
