It's on its way!

It sure has been a joy to fix up our little girl's room! Steve and I both thought we were having a boy but I'm so glad we're having a girl! Not that boys aren't a blessing too, which we want to have as well, but there's just something about little girl stuff that is so fun! I've enjoyed every bit that we've done so far! It's so much more fun to look for tiny things instead of for ourselves! Most of the things in her room were either given to us or we found at the Good Will. Her dresser we got on Craig's list. Gotta love bargains! Hope you enjoy the pictures! We have LOTS left to do but we're off to a good start!

Here's what we started with, a big ol' mess!

It took a little elbow grease, but Steve got the crib together with some telephone assistance from our friends Hannah and Enoch, who blessed us by giving us the crib!

We tried it out on Stella, she wasn't sure what to think! She started licking the rails!

Steve's dad and stepmom blessed us tremendously by getting our glider for us!

Here's the shelf hanging above the crib, the books are old fashioned and the blocks my mom sent me. Some are ones my sister and I played with and some my mom played with! So grateful to have those to share with our little girl! There are 6 pegs on the shelf, one for each letter of AUDREY. Still have to get the letters and paint them, a project left to be done soon.
