We’ve picked up the pace on creating Amelia’s room!
For months now, we’ve avoided all of our painting and sewing projects with the expectation that we were leaving “any day,” and that we didn’t want to leave for Uganda mid-project and bring her home to a disaster zone. But I am starting learn the lesson that we just need to live each day for the HERE and now in the U.S. If we don’t, we will miss out on many opportunities.
And besides that, this is one of the only tangible things I can do for Amelia as her mom right now!
Here is our inspiration picture for her nursery: We’re hoping to paint next week.
(Only we will be mixing some browns into the mix.)
Here is the light fixture Brad hung last night. We got it at Ikea, so he placed every tiny part on there and it took about an hour. Go, Dad!
Here is the dresser/”could-be-changing-table” that we got from Ikea with only a fraction of the gift money that the extremely generous hostesses of my baby shower so sweetly gave:
And just for fun, here is the precious giraffe piggy bank the same friends slipped their sweet funds into. I love all things giraffe for Amelia. 🙂
Of course, working in Amelia’s room makes me cry because it usually involves setting aside clothes that she’s already grown out of before I even got to her. But it also makes me happy, because I can just picture her living and laughing in the final product!
