Now that we're close to the end, I definitely feel that whole nesting instinct taking over and we've been working on getting the baby's room "ready." (Jeff and I both acknowledge the fact that we're never going to be completely ready, because we have NO idea of what to expect...)
So below, are pictures of the beginnings of Baby Locke's room (formerly Jeff's study room). It's not even close to be where I'd like it to be when the baby comes, but at least now we don't just have piles of stuff everywhere! :)
The picture above is the closet. All the blue does NOT mean that we found out that we're having a boy. It was just that the choices for the hanging organizers and bins were this blue or pink, and I like blue better than pink. (And colors are just colors and they're all wonderful.)
These are some of the things that I've begun to collect to put on the walls of Baby's room. Aren't the melamine plates so cute?! Jeff got them for me at Loom in Park Slope while he was in NY.
Here's a corner of the room. I made the flags yesterday from leftover fabric from Baby's quilt. Yes, we do still have some piling going on as you can see in this picture, but it is much more contained (it's all in one corner!) than it was before.
(Oh, and for our last day of Teacher Appreciation Week, the mothers at school put on a beautiful luncheon for the teachers and we got books that the students made and signed. My favorite page in my book is from one of my third graders, whom I obviously did not work enough with, who wrote "thing you for all the things, lov, m---". I thought it was very amusing.)
