The Beginnings of Parker's Nursery

Ok, this week I got the crib sheet we ordered, so I threw it and the crib skirt on the baby bed. Obviously, it needs some ironing work, but I had to just go ahead and see what the pieces looked like together, since I didn't know if they'd match. They do! I think I'm going to use a light pink solid-colored bumper with it. I have to admit....I'm really giddy over this!

Here's the sheet up close:

I've been blessed with some great deals on Parker's nursery bedding. So good that you wouldn't believe me if I told you. So I'm hoping that with what I save, I can splurge on something like this. Joel isn't exactly all the way on board with that idea yet, but I'm pretty sure he will be. =) So, for those of you who have been asking me about nursery decorating plans, there's you a little update.

One little thing about Jonah before I end this know that old Sunday-school song that goes, "I've got joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart. Where? Down in my heart..."? Well, he's been singing that lately. But I've realized that the meaning of this particular fruit of the Spirit is going to be a little complicated for us to teach Jonah due to the fact that he has a great-aunt named Joy. The first time he sang that song on his own, he finished and then excitedly said, "Let's do Joe now," referring to my aunt Joy's husband, of course. He sang the entire song again but inserting Joe's name every time the word "joy" came up. Yesterday, I overheard him singing, "I've got daddy, daddy, daddy, daddy down in my heart..."
I do not doubt that this will make for some very interesting theological discussions at some point whenever we decide to address it. For now, it's ok with me. It makes me smile!

Very cute decor!! I love those danty lil' chandeliers. I was in a furniture store the other day and saw a chandelier like the one you want from Pottery Barn, but it was like $60. If I'm back over there anytime soon I will take a picture of it for you.

I love that story about Jonah singing! So funny!

I heard you were sick! Please let me know if I can do anything for you...I had the flu this past weekend, so I know how miserable you are feeling! :(

oh! that's the chandelier I was going to get for Kate's (Camden) nursery! You must get it! If not for me, then for all the other mommies out there who can't buy pink pretty things!
