The Nursery

We ordered the furniture for the baby's nursery at the end of July (when i was only 9 weeks along) from The Baby's Room in Rogers. It is the April collection, a very contemporary style made by Creations Baby. We ordered the crib, nightstand, dresser & hutch in expresso! The crib turns into a toddler bed, then a full size bed that is adaptable for a trundle bed! This will be able to be Hollyn's bedroom furniture for a very, very long time!

The furniture came in after 8 long weeks at the end of September. We (Chris) have only gotten as far as putting together the crib! The rest of the boxes still remain in the garage!

Yesterday, the day after we found out we were having a baby girl, I started (definitely didn't just start... you know I've been looking before now, just now specifically girl!!) looking online for nursery ideas. After not very much luck online, I went to Babies & Beyond (a baby boutiuqe that just moved to the Springdale Outlet mall). I looked through their books of bedding they could order, and again, didn't see anything that struck my eye. The lady offered custom bedding to me after not being able to find anything that I liked. I looked through their swatches of fabric and found exactly what I wanted!!! I called Chris & he met me there & we were able to design the perfect bedding for our baby girl! Here are the 5 fabrics that we chose.

The 3 on the right are called a fabric called Minky, which is a really soft fleece with raised dots! We absolutely love the paisley & stripes! This gives us a great starting point on designing our princess's nursery! The bedding should be here in about a week and a half! I'll update with pictures once it's here!

Her Daddy has just begun spoiling his little girl!
