Baby Boy's Nursery: Furniture Load-In

Over the past several days we've been slowly getting furniture in the nursery.

The crib is in!


 The Golden Retriever pics I ordered on Etsy are hung!


Dresser is in (we just have to attach the mirror that goes on it.)

Daddy gave me this little bookshelf this past weekend.  He got it at an auction at some old school somewhere.  It's so tiny and sweet--perfect for a nursery.  It's solid wood and has the teacher's name written on the back side of the shelves. 

I made this canvas and burlap wall quote a few weeks ago.  I stenciled the quote onto burlap that I Mod Podged burlap onto.  It reads,

He must be so tall when he is on his knees, as one has said, he reaches all the way to Heaven.
His shoulders must be broad enough to bear the burden of a family.
His lips must be strong enough to smile,
firm enough to say no,
and tender enough to kiss.
His love must be so deep that it takes its stand in
Christ and so wide that it takes in the whole world.
He must be big enough to be gentle
and great enough to be thoughtful.
His arms must be strong enough to carry a little child.

Ruth Bell Graham from her book Footprints of a Pilgrim


 I came across the quote back in October--long before I knew I was prego--and instantly fell in love with it.  It's so sweet for a little boy, and a testament to the way I want to nurture and love this new baby!  There's something so remarkably  special about raising a little boy to grow into a strong, man of God with a heart that's on fire for Jesus and then releasing him out into the world. 

And, yesterday, Olivia and I worked on emptying the closet and getting all the baby stuff loaded into it.  It was a big task, and Olivia was a super, big help!


So while the baby's room is improving, the dining room is getting more and more out of control!




(Just keeping it real!)

This mess is driving us all a little crazy!
Sincerely,

Leigh
