Just Waiting on a Baby

UPDATE: We are not longer waiting on anyone to fill this nursery - we have a sweet little girl that turned one last week.  All the pictures in the blog below are from way before she was in our lives so things have changed a little.  I won't lie though - there are still some picture frames that are empty.  :)  And, the time out chair was painted by JJ Sparkles in Texas - you have have seen it on Pinterest a time or two.


Howdy Y'all!
So, we have pretty much put the finishing touches (minus a few things) on the baby's room...but, we still don't know when we are getting a baby.  However, once we have been contacted that a birth mother has chosen us...we are ready to rock and roll.

Because we are adopting, we have no idea if we will get a boy or girl - so, we had to go with a gender neutral theme, but I did not want to go with the traditional yellow and green.  I have a love for the color orange - so that one definitely had to be in there.

Here are a few pictures (sorry taking with my phone) of the room.  I really love the orange, blue and green.


I designed the crib at Polka Tots Designs...and then bought extra fabric to create the frames and the window treatment.

My mom bought my brother a crib when his son was born - so, she also bought us the crib and changing table and we bought the dresser and the bookcase.  I LOVE the furniture which came from JCPenney.com.  Thanks mom, you rock!

We got really lucky on the glider rocker...a friend of a friend was selling their custom upholstered glider rocker which happened to be orange...I love it too.

Of course, being a big Longhorn fan - I had to put a little Bevo in the room too.  :)  More about that little rocking chair below.




This rocking chair was mine when I was about 7 or 8 - and my mom got the chair custom painted to match the room.  Isn't it the cutest thing ever?  Some may find it wild, but I think it matches perfectly!


And, as a surprise, my mom added this chair as well.  Hopefully, our baby will be perfect and will never have to use this chair, but of course, if it is anything like me it will be there ALOT!  HA!


 Hope you enjoyed the tour...and we would love your prayers on our adoption.

Toodles!

  2. I love how it has turned out...what a great take on gender neutral! I will be praying for you and the adoption. I can only imagine the anticipation...waiting the (less than due to preterm labor/births) 9 months of actually pregnancy is so hard...so not having a actual time frame would be torture! Knowing how much love this baby is going to receive from you is and vice versa is what keeps you going I'm sure :)
