Rock a bye baby.

This may be our favorite part of the nursery so far. We got this rocking moose at IKEA. I had seen it back in December and we just had to get one. Right now it is obviously just decoration, but one day she'll rock!

Her highness.

We are getting this little high chair in red. It is very cool. It flips over to make a toddler chair that can scoot right up to the table (no booster seats). The kids I know don't like booster seats for some reason. I thought they were cool, if I remember correctly. Kids these days! It is also very easy to clean, all one piece that can be wiped down easily. If you haven't noticed, I like red. So that doesn't hurt either!


Our crib set came in the mail yesterday. It was made by a very nice woman named Jamie (of Boodybabies) who I found on Etsy. I put up a request on Alchemy and so many nice people responded to my ad. I was able to look at photos of lots of their work and choose the workmanship and price that suited us. She made a crib bumper, crib skirt, blanket, and curtain. They are made from Sandi Henderson's Farmer's Market Apple pattern and red gingham. I have several different sheets to coordinate with the set (solid red, yellow w/white polkadots, and the Brooke pattern from PB Kids). They each make it look totally different, which I thought would be fun. We know we'll be changing those sheets! We are really happy with how it turned out. Jamie did a great job!

Diaper duty.

I chose this diaper bag. I hadn't really found anything I liked much at all until I saw this one. It is roomy and is easy to get things in and out of. We bought it at Bellini in Atlanta. It is JJ Cole's cocoa tree pattern.

Get mobile.

This is the mobile that will be hainging over the crib. It is bamboo. We bought it in Atlanta at B. Braithwaite. So cute! I love the hedgehog.

New ride.

We have decided on the Bumbleride Flyer in Ruby. We tried out strollers at Baby's Room in Marietta, GA. They had all the models we were considering and were able to show us all about them. I highly recommend taking these for a test drive. I totally changed my mind after pushing this one around. Storage was a big issue for us. This one seems to have plenty of room. And it is easy to fold and pretty light. It ain't so bad lookin' either.

Nursery plans

We have had this furniture for a while now (although the changing table is still in the box.) I love it. It is very simple and modern. Both are from Babies R Us by Amy Coe. I was lucky enough to get a major discount on both pieces (both a clearance price and a 15% coupon!)

I just found out I won an appeal in the TN Court of Criminal Appeals. Yay!
