Finally, however, we bought furniture and my parents helped us put it together one weekend in January. I'm not due until March 17th (the C-section will occur on March 8th), but it will make me feel better to have the nursery completed by then, all the baby clothing washed and ready to go, etc. The theme is cute and is something that will hopefully grow with Lawson - potterybarn pirate ship bedding, and my mom made coordinated crib bedding. (Lincoln has decided that he now wants a pirate room...but we told him he is welcome to play in Lawson's room anytime. His room is staying themed as "safari" for quite a while.)
Here are some photos of us getting the nursery ready:
(Well, this photo actually shows Dad putting Linc's hut back together in his room (it had been disassembled since our move several months before.)
Me, almost 8 months pregnant.
Lawson's dresser came from Ikea...not the easiest assembly instructions to follow. Mom and I spent quite a while trying to figure it all out!
Linc enjoyed "helping" (sometimes playing with real tools, or when we needed to use them, he'd run and get "his" (fake) tools from his tool set.
