Okay, here's the big reveal.
If you missed the before pics, they are here.
I'm afraid it sort of turned into a theme room. Husb pointed it out and I think he might be right. I didn't plan it that way. Take a look and comment what you think the "theme" turned into. Maybe husb is just crazy. But, most likely, I got too carried away!
The blue box is where I put memories; all her baby shower cards (am I crazy?), ultrasound pics, etc. The little wicker lamp with the shells on it was given to me by my grandma shortly after I got married. The ceramic frog with the top hat is from husb's grandma; I think she made/painted it.
Every kid that ever sees that rainbow toy calls it either a cake or an ice cream cone - it cracks me up. Because of the cake comments, it always reminds me of Meg's rainbow cake now.
How precious is that bear talking to the porcupine?! I always imagine what he could be telling him about those little eggs. The little striped notebook is where I write memories and keep track of sleeping, growing, and developmental milestones. The little yellow books were mine when I was a little girl.
The bag hanging by the door is her diaper bag. I like having the diaper bag in her room because I have a routine of coming home and bringing it straight in while I still remember if it needs to be restocked with diapers, wipes, etc. Then I hang it on it's hook and I know it's ready to go for next time.
