House Tour Stop #1: Philip's Room

There is a nursery in my house!!!

When we were looking at the house we were excited to see a room already painted blue!  It happened to be the littlest bedroom in the house which was perfect, as Philip has the smallest furniture.  I'm really glad it was already painted this color blue because I'm sure I would have tried to find a perfect match for our bedding set, but I love this color and think it complements the set without being too matchey-matchey.

 We spend many hours in here rocking, singing, reading stories, and getting Philip to fall to sleep.

When you get married or have a baby, you are reminded how blessed you are to be surrounded by a great community.  Without the showers and kind gifts from friends and family, it would be really difficult for anyone to afford to set up a home or prepare for a baby.  I was reminded of this when I did a complete home inventory before I moved - I was amazed at how much it would cost to replace the things in my kitchen alone!

Thank you to everyone who helped make our nursery possible.
