done... and done...

the baby room is done. come and see for yourself...

it is filled with books...

and has a fun night light in place for late night changes and feedings...

hiding behind that little night light, is this cute little giraffe from paris, france.

everything is finished and in its place.

the bed is made and waiting...

i wanted bedding and decorations he wouldn't outgrow too quickly. i loved this bedding the first time i saw it.

little boys are made for sports and cars and balls and bugs... his room is filled with all boy things. these pictures are my favorite...

but this one is close behind...

sheets and blankets and burp cloths and clothes all have their place.

the view out the window... is not so great. just the driveway, and the house across the street.

this is the first outfit we bought, the day we found out he was a he. it is so tiny i am afraid he will not be able to wear it but once. we will bring him home from the hospital in this. it is laid out on the changing table.

thanks for the changing table!

the shelves are filled with all important baby things...

diapers and powder and baby lotion and wash. diaper cream and binkeys and nail clippers and an ear thermometer. diapers are stacked and wipes are open and ready.

the chair is set into place (thanks to a friend of matt's who generously passed it along to us), the boppy sits in the corner waiting for use.

and this beautiful blanket made with love by my best friend lizzie can't wait to be used.

mr piggy bank is waiting patiently to be filled with pennies and nickels and dimes and quarters and hundred dollar bills. no... really... hundred dollar bills would be really helpful... and look at that pig, who wouldn't want to throw a few in there?

    Hello Melinda Sue,
    what a beautiful bedroom !! Seriously, it is so cute !! You have a very good ... taste ! I'm not sure about the sens in american, i just hope it doesn't mean we can eat you !! ;-))
    And I was very happy to see you've got Sophie la girafe !!! A very famous toy, in France. I think each single baby in France had his Sophie la Girafe !! Very useful when he'll begin to make his teeth ... A little help ... If one day, you become fed up with the little sound she makes each time baby Asher will bite it, just let Sophie boil in water ! It make her become silent !... Merci mon Dieu ;-))
    I just come back from my holidays and I don't see any post from the 4th of august, we're the 8th ... Are you OK ? ;-)
