The nursery

At six weeks old our little stud slept in his own room.


Bitter-sweet...

Bitter- Can parents have separation anxiety? I find myself staring at the video monitor way too much!

Sweet-He went from taking cat naps to sleeping about five and a half hours in a row. Mommy is no longer a sleepless zombie.

But more bitter because this means my baby is getting big!
This was his first night in his crib.
Here's some pictures of the nursery. Yep, it's finally done. Putting the room together was so fun! Besides Breklyn making the darling rug, I enlisted Kam and my aunt Meri and we got our creative on and basically made it all. Seriously, the bumper pad and skirt fabric came from a Pottery Barn table runner we found in San Antonio, then we used the extra fabric for a lamp shade and pieces of the quilt. Kami made the sweet tree picture and I tried to copy it with an owl to match (her's turned out way better). I found out that it is harder than you think to find single colored gumballs on the internet and with a little paint and a new knob, ta-dah, Chris' old table is transformed into something new.

Hayes really is getting so big, don't get me started on how fast our babies are growing up or we might get the waterworks flowing :)

The nursery turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! You did such a great job! I am seriously impressed with your creativity and skill. And although putting him in his own room was bitter-sweet, you'll find later than it's pretty sweet, and you'll get used to having him away. (Not that I can speak from experience here, but since Keith and I laid in bed three feet away from Tysha as she screamed her pants off for half an hour last night, I've got to believe separation is better than that!) As for babies who grow up too fast, I just try to enjoy each stage and watching them learn and discover this new world they've joined.
