…almost. For all intents and purposes, Beckett’s (it’s nice to use his name now) nursery is completed. There are just a few minor things to do (hang some diy hooks, paint the closet, organize the closet), but I am pleased with how everything turned out. It’s been quite the process, one that we completed a week before Beckett decided to join our family.
If you don’t remember, we started with this:
Then we had “the wall”.
Which turned into this.
There it is. The nursery in
all its most of its glory. Beckett loves it. Ha, he’s taken one nap in there, had a few diaper changes, and gone with Mommy to get clothes out of his closet, and that’s it. Currently, Beckett is sleeping in a bassinet in our room. We figured that since his room is next to Harrison’s we’d be better off having him in our room for the first month or so while we establish a sleeping routine. Harrison can sleep through anything, so it’s more to relieve my stress of worrying Harrison will wake up when we go to get Beckett. Yep, so all that hard work, and, right now, our little peanut sleeps here:
