The Nursery is Ready!

After many hours of shopping, sanding, painting, cleaning and decorating, Anna Kate's nursery is finally ready! I absolutely love it and am so excited to bring her home to it. Thank you so much to everyone who helped by giving us the crib/glider (the Branans), buying the crib bedding (Grannie), making the quilt (Whitney), buying the lamp/decorations (Mom and Mom), and slipcovering the glider cushions (Christy). We appreciate you and know that Anna Kate will too! Oh, and one little clarification...we are going to put her entire name (Anna Kate) up on the wall, but Walmart was out of the wooden "K" letters, and I didn't want to put up "Anna Ate," so that is the only incomplete part of the nursery. Well that and the slipcovering of the ottoman cushion. So it's almost complete! Alright, without further ado, here are the pictures!

Now we just have to wait for her to get here! Oh, and I forgot to post after our doctor's visit on Wednesday, but at that visit I was 2cm dilated and 90% effaced. So it could be any day now, or she could still hold out to her due date of February 13. We will see!


  1. It is absolutely beautiful! I love it and can't wait to see Anna Kate in it!

    Love Mom B.

  2. This is great! I love it. I can't wait until Anna Kate is here and gets to enjoy it. It looks fantastic. xoxo

  3. It is awesome! You both did a great job. Anna Kate is already blessed to have such wonderful parents.
