I am continuing posts with Huggies and BlogHer on a baby's first year. Today I'm going to talk nurseries. I loved planning the nurseries for my girls. I think most people do. I had thought about how I would do each girls' room. If I had a few more kids - I could find all kinds of new themes for the nurseries! They are just so fun to do.
I wanted to do a lot of pink in my first daughter's room. I also thought pink zebra print would be fun. I added in touches of lime green. Her room has evolved into a bigger kid room these days but it still basically the same.This is Harper's room when I first did her nursery. These pictures were taken before she was even born!
The crib is now gone and she sleeps on the day bed. We have new pink bedding and a pink rug.
My friend Jamie painted our verse for Harper to go above her bed - Ephesians 3:20.
I could never find any bedding I loved so I had it made at Polka Tot Designs. They did a great job.
My dad made this dresser for Harper and I love it. I used it as a changing table briefly. Now it stores her dress up clothes and some folding clothes. I'm sure this special dresser from Papa will be in her room all of her growing up!
This is Hollis' room before she was born. It's basically the same now but the day bed has moved back to Harper's room and is her big girl bed. That day bed has served us well!
I loved having a day bed in their rooms. I never used a changing table and I was able to use the bed to lay them on to dress them or change them and I also slept on that bed sometimes when they were newborns.
Hollis' room was in light brown and blue and I love it! It's so calm and sweet!
This is looking into her nursery. Baskets of toys now line the wall where the day bed was.
I got Hollis' crib at J C Penney and I absolutely LOVE it. I also had her bedding made at polka tot designs and I have just loved it.
This has been added - this is the dress both girls came home from the hospital in. I love this shadow box.
