Nursery Sneak Peek: Part 1

Let the real fun begin!  As I've mentioned before, Fred and I have decided that we want to start decorating a nursery for our little bundle of joy.  It's hard to believe that we're actually working on a nursery that one precious baby will call home one day (hopefully soon). 

Progress on the nursery has been slow and a few of you might have seen this pic of Fred putting a little something together on Instagram (carolinesmithwick) or Twitter a couple of weeks back...
But we just received the customized crib bedding yesterday from Holly and I just couldn't hold a little sneak peak of the bedding in any longer.
 This and a cute little computer sketch was all I saw before I placed the order.
 I really wanted something that was fun and whimsical.  And since we do not know the sex of the baby, I needed something that was gender neutral.  I found the giraffe fabric on Etsy and contacted Holly about creating bedding to match my vision and she did!  She helped me put all of the colors and shapes together to create this beautiful mix.  I would highly recommend using Holly for any of your bedding needs.

Now it's time to start picking a paint color and finally deciding on some actual furniture (my biggest headache right now) for the nursery!  I promise to keep you updated on the progress!

I can't wait to work on a nursery! I'm so excited that you and your husband are doing this and can't WAIT to see pictures. Do you have a link to your infertility story? I read a few things on here and was interested. My husband and I have been trying for a while and are looking towards adoption. I think its SUCH an amazing thing and both of our families have adopted.
