Hello, again! I just wanted to share some of the pictures of Jonah's nursery for those of you who do not follow me on facebook.
We loved every minute of decorating this room for our little boy. It was difficult at first to even think about removing all of Madeline's things. But over time, Rick and I were able to find enough strength to do so. It was very hard because she never spent one night in there or used any of those things, but they were hers. Her nursery was just a picture of our love for her. If I knew the outcome in advance, I still would have prepared that beautiful room for her... Even for just 2 days. Every ounce of hard work was worth it.
As we thought about what we would do for Jonah Bear's nursery, I knew one thing... I wanted to keep Maddie's tree. So, I came up with a sweet whimsical woodland theme with pastels and ran with it. I found the perfect bedding by Glenna Jean, and the name of it was Finley. Finley was the name of the Caden Lane bedding I bought for Maddie Grace. I thought that was too cool of a coincidence, yet something else they shared. (By the way, we will be removing his bumpers before he sleeps in his crib. We are taking every precaution to reduce the risk of SIDS.)
After finding the perfect bedding, I wanted to find the perfect animals to put in there. I wanted birds in there for sure to honor Maddie. I also found little squirrels, owls, bunnies, deer and hedgehogs. I thought they were so sweet. I ordered custom wall letters and the mobile off of etsy, along with some sweet little crochet animals.
We added little leaves, buttons and animals into Maddie's tree and then Rick painted some other whimsical tree's on the other wall. He even painted a nest with 4 eggs and a Maddie Birdie with an "M" on her wing. By the way, he free-handed EVERYTHING. Yep, he's pretty amazing. I finished it off with the sweetest polka dot rug and some other fun things.
A lot of tears and love went into this room, but we enjoyed making a precious nest for our precious little boy. We love him so much and can't wait for him to get here and enjoy it.
And now we wait... We wait for this precious little boy to join our family. So excited!
