The Nursery

Finally, I feel that our nursery is picture worthy.

We have only worked on it since I began panicking in December.

Ken recognizes crazy and just rolls with it.

Bless him.

The nursery has definitely been a group effort. I could not have done it without my sweet husband who has hung items throughout the room, moved furniture until it was just right, and put together whatever needed putting together as well as made the nicest closet in our home.

I may be a little jealous of the closet. These babies have no idea.

Mama helped me sew trim on the curtains and make the mobiles.

I am so thankful for her mad sewing skills. I would still be working on those birds and would not be offering showers of praise words.

Mama and Daddy found the extra crib along with other numerous items.

Middle provided the giraffes and window picture from her mission work in Africa. She bought one giraffe a few years ago, and then had to order another one when we found out there were two babies. Apparently, the precious man felt rushed, because one giraffe looks a little crunk while the other is all sweet and peace.

Predicting personalities of our babies, perhaps?

I love that there are people in Africa praying over our children.

Baby sister and Mama have contributed to a lot of the clothes in the closet and drawers.

One of my lovely teacher/neighbor friends made the bedding. It is exactly as I imagined. She, Ken, and I just giggled putting all that bedding on.

Oh happy day!

As you can tell, this nursery was planned with a lot of love.

All in all, the nursery is ready for the babies to come, but we want them to come when they are healthy and ready. 

It cracks me up that we did all this work, and those babies could care less. 

All they need is love, some food, and a place to catch their zzz's.

Thank you, friends, for celebrating this day with me!

We are so blessed and God is so good!

This was the Lord’s doing;
It is marvelous in our eyes.
~ Psalm 118:23
